In a recent appearance on Drink Champs, Treach of Naughty By Nature discussed the investigation into the murder of his friend, 2Pac, expressing his belief that Las Vegas police had known for decades who killed the legendary rapper.
N.O.R.E. questioned Treach about the recent developments in the case, including the arrest of Duane “Keefe D” Davis. Treach voiced his skepticism about the thoroughness of the investigation, particularly when it involves rappers. He suggested that if you’re a rapper, authorities may not fully investigate the matter, and whatever information surfaces is likely provided by the perpetrator.
Treach emphasized the impact on families, stating that two families on either side of life are destroyed when such incidents occur. He criticized the reluctance of some individuals to cooperate with the police, mentioning Suge Knight’s resistance to testify. Treach stated, “Nobody is ever going on the stand for shit. That ain’t supposed to stop police from doing their muthafuckin’ job.”
According to Treach, the police had ample information to make an arrest but chose not to. He claimed that police had been aware of details for decades, citing documentaries that have covered various aspects of the case over the years. He pointed out that if there’s footage of an altercation in a casino involving different gang factions, it makes someone a prime suspect.
Treach concluded by expressing frustration at the failure to act on information that was available. The suspect, Keefe D, was arrested in September in connection with the 1996 murder of 2Pac. Davis, accused of orchestrating the hit, faces charges of murder with a deadly weapon in affiliation with a criminal gang. The trial is set to begin on June 3, 2024, and Davis has pleaded not guilty.
