A former member of the gang claims to know who really killed legendary hip-hop artist Tupac Shakur, and is spelled out in a Netflix-documentary-series.
Duane Keith Davis, a former member of the Los Angeles-based gang crips, said in an interview for “Unresolved, the Tupac and Biggie Murders” that it was his nephew Orlando “Baby Lane” Anderson, who killed Tupac in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas on Sept. 7, 1996.
Tupac was shot four times and died six days later.

Davis, alias’keefe, D,” talked about the murder under immunity from prosecution, according to The Daily Mail.
Davis said that earlier on the day of the shooting, his cousin, also with the recruiting of new member states, had tried to steal a Death Row Records medallion of a member of Tupac’s entourage who reportedly was affiliated with the rival gang Bloods. Tupac and his team allegedly beat up Anderson after the incident.
Davis went on to say, that later that night he, Anderson and two other people waited around for Tupac to come out of a concert. They followed him and rolled over next to the SUV the rapper was.
“I gave [the gun] to [Andre “Dre” Smith] and Dre was like ‘no, no, No” and Lane was as — shot the dudes,” Davis said.
“[Baby Lane] leaned over and rolled down the window and shot them,” Davis told the filmmaker.
Tupac’s entourage allegedly jumped Orlando Anderson prior to the shooting.
The Netflix documentary is released in the Uk only.
In a separate documentary about the murder, Davis revealed he was struggling with an illness and wanted to confess what happened on the evening before it is too late.
“I was a Compton kingpin, drug dealer, I’m the only one alive who can really tell a story about the Tupac dead,” he said, without revealing the killer at the time.
Kyle Long, the executive producer of “Unresolved, the Tupac and Biggie Murders,” called Las Vegas police to pursue against Anderson, according to the BRITISH Daily Star.
“He went live on tv and confessed to being complicit in the murder and the Las Vegas PD, as far as I know, does nothing about it”, told the British tabloid.
