Josh Duhamel says he knows what really happened to Tupac and Biggie. The actor is part of the cast of Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac and Notorious B.I.G.
In a recent interview, Duhamel said that even though the title of the series claims the murders are unsolved, everyone has a pretty good idea what really happened to both rappers.
"We have a very good idea - whether we agree that the police were involved - there were definitely some shady things that were going on," said Duhamel. "Did they do it? Did they not do it? It's not what you know, it's what you can prove, and that's the tragedy of this story. There's so many conflicting theories that it's hard to sift through it all and find out what the actual truth is."
Detective Greg Kading Talks Tupac's Murder
In the series, the actor plays the role of Detective Greg Kading. In 2016, the real-life detective said it was Sean "Puff Daddy" Combs, currently known as Sean "Diddy" Combs, who asked Crips gang member Duane Keith "Keffe D" Davis to kill Tupac in exchange for $1 million.
Kading said that on Sept. 7, 1996, Davis's nephew Orlando "Baby Lane" Anderson killed Tupac. The explosive claims first came to light in the documentary Murder Rap, which is based on the 2011 book of the same name.
Furthermore, Duhamel hinted at the possibility of Tupac still being alive. He said that because the rapper was larger than life, his fans could not help but hope that he is still alive somewhere.
What Happened To Biggie?
Biggie, on the other hand, passed away on March 9, 1997, following a drive-by shooting in Los Angeles. The rapper was shot four times and was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center immediately after. He was pronounced dead there at around 1 a.m. Several investigations into Biggie's death took place, but his demise still remains unresolved.
Prior to Biggie's death, he traveled to Los Angeles to promote his upcoming second album Life After Death. He also filmed a music video for "Hypnotize."
On March 5, he sat down for an interview with The Dog House on KYLD in San Francisco. In the interview, the rapper said that he hired security because he feared for his own life. He further said that he was also affected by the death of Tupac in Las Vegas months earlier.
It is believed that Biggie was also killed by a gang member.
