A MAN has apparently revealed the identity of Tupac Shakur’s killer in a docu-series currently airing on Netflix.

In the latest episode of Unsolved to air on streaming service, Duane Keith Davis, known as Keefe D, has claimed that his nephew shot the rapper.

Davis said he was prompted to share the story after being diagnosed with cancer.

“People have been pursuing me for 20 years,” he said.

“I’m coming out now because I have cancer. And I have nothing else to lose. All I care about now is the truth.”

Davis says that he was a passenger in the car with his nephew Orlando “Baby Lane” Anderson and DeAndre “Dre” Smith when T-Brown, the driver, pulled up by Tupac’s car.

He said that he sat in the front seat with Smith in the back and claimed the shots came from the backseat but does not name the shooter in an earlier TV programme, Death Row Chronicles.

“Going to keep it for the code of the streets. It just came from the backseat,” Davis said.

But now in a taped confession Davis says that Anderson fired the fatal shots.

“I gave it to Dre and Dre was like ‘no, no, no’ and Lane was like – popped the dudes,” Davis alleged.

“He leaned over and rolled down the window and popped them.”

Before his death in a shooting in 1998, Anderson denied murdering Tupac.

The director of the docu-series, Kyle Long, has lead calls for the police to question Keefe D in relation to the murder.

Long said: “He went live on television and confessed to being an accessory to murder and the Las Vegas PD, as far as I know, is doing nothing about it.

“I just think it’s outrageous.”

Davis has claimed he is the “only person alive” able to confirm who killed the rapper.

"I was a Compton kingpin, drug dealer, I'm the only one alive who can really tell you story about the Tupac killing," Davis said in an interview with BET.
