Napoleon Confirms Diddy Put A Bounty On Tupac’s Head 

There have been rumors that Diddy was the real catalyst behind Tupac’s murder. While there’s no concrete evidence supporting these claims, Orlando Anderson’s uncle, Duane “Keefe D” Davis once alleged Puff offered him a million dollars to kill Pac and Suge.

Now in a new interview with the Art of Dialogue, former Outlawz member Napoleon also confirmed hearing similar rumors. “At the end of the day there’s no proof. When all of this happened Puffy was in New York somewhere,” he said. “I heard about it. It won’t be surprising to me. I heard about the rumors that Puff paid that money [$1,000,000] for Pac or Suge. I’m not surprised of that. It don’t sound far fetched to me.”

In his assertion, he suggested that part of Tupac’s motivation to attack Orlando Anderson that night at the MGM Grand was in retaliation to Puff allegedly ordering Orlando to snatch a Death Row chain. 

“Pac wanted to show his loyalty to Death Row and the people who had his back. So that’s why I think when he heard this is the individual that snatched a chain that’s why he just took off the way he did which is an unfortunate situation because pac is very intelligent. He used to tell us not to do stuffs like that.”


Hours after his altercation with Orlando Anderson, Tupac was tragically murdered in a drive-by shooting near the intersection of East Flamingo Road and Koval Lane. About Puff not being called in for questioning, Napoleon said, “To be honest even if we feel that way, but we know how the law works… Puffy is not a dummy and America is a place that money talks because when you’ve got money you got people in high places.”

Pac and Suge Knight met in Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora, New York, in 1995 while Pac was serving time for sexual abuse charges. The two men quickly became friends, and Knight, who was awaiting trial on assault charges agreed to sign him to Death Row Records. Knight also paid Shakur’s bail, which allowed him to be released from prison.

According to people familiar with their relationship, Pac was evidently more hostile after linking up with Death Row. In his conversation with the Art Of Dialogue, Napoleon implied that Pac’s loyalty to Suge Knight “was what really caused his death.”
