“The Controversy Surrounding 2Pac’s Unsolved Murder and the Alleged Involvement of DeAndre ‘Big Dre’ Smith”

By | July 21, 2023



The unsolved murder of rapper 2Pac continues to be a sensitive and controversial topic, especially for Duane “Keefe D” Davis, the uncle of the alleged killer Orlando Anderson. In a recent interview, Keefe D expressed frustration when asked about the theory that DeAndre “Dre” Smith was the one who shot 2Pac.

Smith was believed to be one of the men in the white Cadillac that pulled up alongside 2Pac and Suge Knight on the night of the shooting. Keefe D had previously admitted that he was also in the vehicle, with the shots being fired from the backseat. However, he vehemently denied the theory that Smith was the shooter, stating that both Smith and Anderson were just kids at the time and that Smith was an athlete, not someone involved in criminal activities.

The interview clip ends abruptly, reflecting the tense nature of the conversation. Keefe D’s alleged involvement in 2Pac’s murder has gained renewed attention recently, as Las Vegas police executed a search warrant on his wife’s home as part of the ongoing investigation. Various items were seized, including computers, hard drives, and magazine articles about 2Pac.

While the search was seen as a success by the police, it remains to be seen if any of the evidence will directly link Keefe D to the murder. The seized items are now being presented to a grand jury, and it could take months before any indictments are made.

Investigators have long believed that the actual gunman is likely already deceased, as Anderson was killed in an unrelated gang shooting in 1998. However, they hope to determine who was in the car when the fatal shots were fired, possibly leading to charges against an accomplice.

The murder of 2Pac is believed to have stemmed from an altercation between the rapper, his entourage, and Anderson in the lobby of the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Anderson, a member of the South Side Compton Crips, was suspected of stealing a chain belonging to a Death Row Records affiliate.


Despite identifying Anderson as a suspect, he was never charged, and no arrests have been made in the case. The investigation remains open, and law enforcement is determined to bring justice to 2Pac and his family..
