Greg Kading is a former LAPD detective who specialized in the fields of gangs, narcotics and homicides in the city of Los Angeles (California). After retiring, he published the book Murder Rap (2011), where he assures he knows who Tupac’s murderer is.
Tupac Shakur’s murder case is not officially solved, but Greg Kading, based on the evidence he collected during his years in service, claims that a man called Baby Lane shot the rapper and –this is one of the most commented parts of the book—, rapper and businessman Diddy –formerly, Puff Daddy– offered $1,000,0000 for this to happen.
On September 7th, 1996, Tupac Shakur attended the Mike Tyson–Bruce Seldon boxing match at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. He left the match around 11.00 pm and at approximately 11.15 pm, a white Cadillac fired gunshots at the rapper. He was taken to the University Medical Center, where on the afternoon of Friday, September 13th he died of internal bleeding.
