A few days ago we reported that an upcoming Netflix documentary is claiming music mogul Diddy hired hit men to kill rap legend Tupac Shakur.
This conspiracy theory has been floating around for years and a big tabloid newspaper published the claims and was forced to retract it after Diddy’s lawyers got involved.
The new Netflix documentary called Murder Rap is based on a book by former LAPD investigator Greg Kading.
He claims that when Diddy hired hit men to murder Tupac in 1996 – Suge Knight hired hit men to kill Biggie in a revenge killing. Kading claims Diddy hired a Crip to kill Tupac for $1 million.
Diddy is reportedly furious that he is again being accused of killing Tupac and is threatening to sue!
The L.A. Times published a story in 2008 claiming two years before Tupac’s murder Diddy’s boys shot Tupac five times outside a New York recording studio but he survived. The paper used FBI files and Diddy’s inside circle as sources.
But the Times published a retraction soon after saying, “The Times has since concluded that the FBI reports were fabricated and that some of the other sources relied on including a ‘confidential source’ cited in the FBI reports do not support major elements of the story.”
Fans speculated that Diddy’s lawyers had threatened to sue the paper and in order to avoid a huge court battle they wrote the retraction. The documentary is still said to be going ahead and will chronicle the 1996 murder of Tupac in Vegas.
Diddy has denied involvement in both the ’94 shooting and the ’96 murder.
