A former Compton “kingpin” has been captured on camera apparently revealing the truth behind one of the most notorious unsolved crimes in American history. World-famous rapper Tupac Shakur was shot in Las Vegas on September 7, 1996, but no one has ever been arrested for his murder. Now, however, former gangster Keefe D (real name Duane Keith Davies) has revealed that he was in fact witness to the events leading to Tupac’s death. Perhaps, then, the mystery is close to being solved.

Tupac Shakur was shot dead in a drive-by shooting more than 20 years ago. One of the world’s seminal rap artists, Tupac recorded four albums in his lifetime that secured his place in hip-hop history. The rapper’s first record, released in 1991, was 2Pacalypse, followed two years later by Strictly 4 My N.I.G.G.A.Z… Then on 1995’s Me Against the World, Tupac wrote an endearing tribute to his mother Afeni Shakur, a former political activist who was jailed while pregnant with him in 1971.

Tupac released his fourth and final album in 1996 – the year he was killed. All Eyez on Me was another hit for the the rapper, and nearly two decades later, the same title was also given to a biopic that charted his colorful but short life. The late rapper has stayed in the headlines in recent years, too, with a BBC Radio 4 documentary Tupac Shakur, Hip-Hop Immortal broadcast in 2014, 18 years after his death. In this program, poet Al Letson said that despite Tupac’s brief life, the rapper had “burned like a supernova.”
