Who is Tupac murder suspect Duane ‘Keffe D’ Davis?

The self-proclaimed “Compton Kingpin” was charged with murder in connection with Tupac Shakur’s murder. 

Duane “Keffe D” Davis, 60, was a prime suspect since the early days of the investigation and is now the only person alive who was allegedly in the Cadillac the night the legendary rapper was killed in a drive-by shooting. 

Las Vegas police said he was the “shot caller” of the South Side Compton Crips street gang, which was in a complex feud with Shakur and his crew that escalated from rap lyrics to brawls and shootings, lead detective Greg Kading told Fox News Digital. 

For years, Davis denied any involvement in Shakur’s murder until about 2009, when police held drug charges over his head and essentially gave him immunity to tell them everything he knew about that night, the now-retired L.A. detective said. 

Shakur’s murder was even more eerie – and became legendary – after his lyrics seemed to foreshadow his early death.

“The fast life ain’t everything they told ya. Never get much older, following the tracks of a soulja,” he wrote in his 1991 song “Soulja’s Story.”
