Rapper and actor Ice-T has spoken out about the recent arrest of Duane “Keefe D” Davis in connection with the 1996 murder of Tupac Shakur. Davis, a self-identified member of the South Side Compton Crip gang, was apprehended by authorities in Clark County, Nevada, and now faces charges related to the murder.
Despite not being the one who pulled the trigger, Nevada law holds him accountable for the crime. Ice-T’s comments shed light on the situation, emphasizing the significance of Davis’s own admissions over the years.
Ice-T shared his thoughts on the recent developments surrounding the Tupac Shakur murder case. He expressed his initial reaction, which echoed the sentiment that “people talk too much.”
According to Ice-T, Davis made a crucial error by repeatedly discussing his involvement in the incident. In a 2018 episode of BET’s Death Row Chronicles and in his memoir, Compton Street Legend, Davis openly admitted to being present in the car when Tupac Shakur was shot.
Ice-T questioned why it took law enforcement so long to make an arrest, given Davis’s repeated admissions. He drew a parallel to his own understanding of the legal system, explaining that if someone is aware of a crime and actively participates in it, they are considered complicit.
Ice-T emphasized the significance of Davis repeatedly stating that he was in the car during the shooting, pointing out that no one else had made such an admission. This led him to question Davis’s motives for revealing this information, considering the risk of getting caught.
Ice-T also commented on Davis’s willingness to name the other individuals in the car during the shooting, including his own nephew, Orlando “Baby Lane” Anderson. Ice-T found it perplexing that Davis chose to reveal these details, essentially incriminating himself further. In Ice-T’s view, Davis’s actions have left no need for additional testimony, as he has effectively sealed his own fate.
