Like most people, I love my TV shows. In particular, I love murder mysteries and the cold case shows that are so engaging. Earlier today, we got the news that many have been waiting for – for what seems like an eternity.
Today is a day you will remember where you were when you heard this news. Depending where you live of course, the Tardis or Hot Tub Time Machine backed up and knocked on your door for a WTF moment as it was announced that a murder suspect in the Tupac Shakur murder was indicted.
Many years have passed and people started to believe that no one would ever be arrested for his murder. Finally, today was the day that justice was finally served. Duane “Keffe D” Davis was charged with Shakur’s murder.
Davis has been on the radar of the police department for quite some time. Hopefully now there is enough evidence to get a murder conviction and some closure to the mystery of Shakur’s death for the family and fans that have been in limbo all of these year
Davis previously put himself at the scene of the crime in his memoir, “Compton Street Legend,” he “was” a supposed witness to the shooting and murder that took place on September 7, 1996.
It was announced that a Nevada grand jury indicted him on one count of murder with a deadly weapon, Clark County Chief Deputy District Attorney Marc DiGiacomo announced earlier today.
Since we are going back in time, and if you were a music lover in the 1990s, chances are you were a fan of Tupac Shakur. His music was enjoyed by people of every race and gender. He was charismatic, smart, a great entertainer be it behind the mic or behind the camera. His film legacy includes credits for “Juice,” “Above the Rim,” “Gang Related,” and “Poetic Justice.” His music catalog propelled him to international stardom with his mega hit, “California Love.”
Unfortunately, during the ’90s there was a beef going on between east coast and west coast rappers that also claimed the life of another iconic figure from the genre, Biggie Smalls (aka The Notorious B.I.G.). Like Biggie – at the height of Shakur’s career, he was gunned down in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas in 1996. He was only 25 years old.
Hopefully today brings relief to people on both sides of the country. This is a developing story and OC Music News will update you as more information becomes available.
