Treach Says Investigators Knew Who Killed Tupac A Long Time Ago

During an interview with ‘Drink Champs,’ the Naughty By Nature rapper claims the Las Vegas Police Department’s recent findings aren’t anything new.

Ever since the arrest of over the 1996 murder of Tupac Shakur, both general hip-hop fans, as well as those who have connections to the late West Coast legend, have weighed in. That now includes Treach.

During an interview with Drink Champs, the Naughty By Nature rapper was asked by co-hosts N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN about the recent findings by the Las Vegas Police Department. He says those discoveries aren’t new to that law enforcement office.

“I think it’s a testament to if you’re a rapper they’re not gonna investigate it. Anything that was said was said by the perpetrator,” Treach noted. “Whatever went on the system first knew a lot of this way before.

“Me, I’m just one, there’s two families on either side of life that’s destroyed,” he continued. “When anyone dies or the shooter, it’s n****s against n****s. Look at the f*****g world, everyone stands with each other.”

Treach also claimed Suge Knight knows about the LVPD’s knowledge of Keefe D’s culpability. “Suge said they wanted him to get on stand,” he said. “We cut from different cloths. Nobody is ever going on the stand for s**t. That ain’t supposed to stop police from doing their m*********n’ job.” 

Finally, Treach says he believes law enforcement were the ones with everything they needed to make an arrest in the case but they refused for one reason or another.

“Nah they been knowing. I’ve seen documentaries for decades. Many laying down, many details. If you got on tape in Vegas in a casino of an altercation between different gang factions, that’s a Number one suspect,” he told the podcast. “It’s on camera for the cops and then the documentaries come out and say it and we over there like, ‘Duh.’ 20 years ago he would’ve got locked up and he’d be out now. And now you going in, so you never coming out. It’s our people that does it to our people.”

Keefe D was arrested on September 29 in connection with Tupac’s murder. The hip-hop legend was fatally shot during a drive-by, with the new suspect accused of “orchastrating” the hit. Keefe has been charged with murder with a deadly weapon in affiliation with a criminal gang. He’s currently being held without bond in the Clark County Detention Center.
