'Gangster Keefe D who confessed to role in Tupac murder' may 'have information about rapper's rival Biggie's murder' | The Sun

A COMPTON gangster, whose home is at the center of a police probe into the murder of Tupac Shakur, may be aware of information concerning the killing of Biggie Smalls.

Keefe D has confessed on several occasions in books and interviews that he handed a gun to nephew Orlando Anderson, who is accused of shooting Tupac in Las Vegas in September 1996.

However, a source who spoke directly with Keefe revealed to The U.S. Sun that the Compton gangbanger was also hanging out with Biggie Smalls moments before he was assassinated in Los Angeles six months later in March 1997.

Keefe, 60, said he was invited to "chill" with Smalls and Bad Boy Records label boss Puff Daddy as they drank champagne during a party at The Petersen Auto Museum in Miracle Mile on March 9, the source recalled.

Keefe, an acquaintance of Smalls, insisted for years that he had nothing to do with the murder, given he was part of the Southside Cripps.

However, the 60-year-old claims he warned Puffy to take care as members of rival gangs were outside the Petersen, which was at the height of the East-West rap wars.

In recent years Keefe has confided to associates that he has "his knowledge and information of suspicious characters at the party, who have never spoken to police or FBI."

The source, who has spoken with Keefe personally about his experiences at the party, said: "Keefe says he knows all about the night Biggie got offed.

"He says he has the full down low on how things went down and has his feelings who was responsible for pulling the trigger.

"There were people inside the party who he believes helped 'set up' the assassination keeping tabs on Biggie.

"People in those criminal communities knew he was there, and others were in awe of him being friendly with Biggie.

"He says that information was shared with him, and now he knows how it went down and those that were involved. He was like: ‘I am staying away from the police.’

"Whether or not he is just talking to be a 'big man' is unsure. But he did know a lot of people on both sides of the gangs."

The source added: "He did say that people thought he may have been involved at one stage, which was insane.

"People around Biggie and Puffy insisted he was tight with them and not part of it. He made it clear.

“He always says that he sensed something was going off that night because he saw rival gangs outside the party.

"He has always stuck with his story that he warned Puffy, as he still calls him, that they should be ready for potential trouble.”

Keefe is at the center of Tupac’s death investigation after homicide detectives searched the Las Vegas home where he and his partner reside.

The warrant, signed by a Las Vegas judge, saw investigators remove phones, computers, photos, and bullets last month.

Currently, homicide detectives are building their case and evidence file in consideration of potential charges.

A tape of Keefe talking about Biggie's last night alive is featured in the film Murder Rap, which is available for rent on YouTube.

In the recording, it's revealed that Keefe offered Combs "extra security” over concerns about Biggie's safety, but his mogul and rapper boss declined, allegedly telling him: "The FBI is all over me."

Keefe warned Diddy over his concerns that rival blood gang members at the party and associates of Death Row Records – the competition to Diddy's label.

Keefe's recording came as he agreed to speak confidentially under a proffer agreement with the Los Angeles Police Department, which meant he spoke freely without threat of prosecution.

Producer Mike Dorsey, who created Murder Rap: Inside the Biggie and Tupac Murders and was a co-producer on USA Network and Netflix's Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac & The Notorious B.I.G., reflected on Keefe's knowledge of Smalls' death.

Dorsey exclusively told The U.S Sun: "Firstly, I think anyone who has credible information that could help officially close the Biggie murder case should come forward.

"I think Keefe has alluded to seeing possible Death Row associates at the party that he was concerned about that night, but beyond that, I don't know what else he knows.

"The South Side Crips weren't involved in Biggie's murder."

Dorsey added that Keefe's proffer session with LAPD was "nothing to do with Biggie's murder," so new information could be of use.

Biggie's death remains unsolved. Over the past few years, theories have been floated about the gunman who shot Smalls as he drove away from The Petersen.

Last year, former LAPD detective Greg Kading revealed to The U.S. Sun that Darnell “Poochie” Fouse allegedly pulled the trigger after being paid just $14,000.

Kading claims the hit was allegedly orchestrated by Death Row Records boss Marion "Suge" Knight in response to the murder of his “money-maker” Tupac Shakur and to maintain his hardcore gangster status.

One of Suge's baby mamas allegedly acted as the go-between for the infamous hit against Biggie – real name Christopher Wallace – before breaking rank and revealing the entire plot to cops, Kading said.

Kading, who led a major federal task force probe into Biggie's murder, has revealed how his force’s investigations and Suge’s ex – codenamed "Theresa Swann" – detailed how Suge allegedly paid enforcer Poochie.
