Rap mogul 50 Cent has reignited his longstanding feud with Diddy, this time targeting the latter's alleged association with Duane “Keefe D” Davis, the former Crip leader implicated in 2Pac's assassination.
On October 15, 50 Cent took to his Instagram to share a snippet from Keefe D's interview with The Art of Dialogue. In the clip, Keefe D accuses Diddy of ruining his life and expresses his frustration over not receiving any financial support from the rapper. 50 Cent humorously captioned the post, urging Diddy, also known as Brother Love, to show some generosity.
Keefe D's grievances stem from his belief that while Diddy financially supported other LA gang members, he was left out. “One of my homies from [Rollin’] 30s [Crips] gets clothes every quarter, and others received luxury cars and even stakes in record companies. I was on top until I met you,” Keefe D lamented.
Keefe D has consistently alleged Diddy's involvement in 2Pac's 1996 murder. In his book,
Compton Street Legend, he claims Diddy directly commissioned the hit, targeting both Suge Knight and 2Pac. Further, in a VladTV interview, Keefe D mentioned that the FBI informed him about Diddy's supposed $1 million bounty on the murder, a sum he believes was meant for him but was misappropriated by Eric “Von Zip” Martin, another figure connected to the Bad Boy/Death Row rivalry.
This backdrop sets the stage for 50 Cent's relentless jabs at Diddy, especially after Keefe D's recent arrest. The G-Unit frontman has consistently mocked Diddy on various platforms, from social media to live concerts. In a previous Instagram post, 50 Cent even advised Diddy to "lawyer up" in light of the recent developments.
During a European concert on his Final Lap Tour, 50 Cent couldn't resist taking another dig at Diddy, suggesting that perhaps his comments about Diddy's alleged involvement in 2Pac's murder were due to unresolved personal issues.
However, Diddy has consistently refuted these allegations. In a 2016 interview on The Breakfast Club, he dismissed the claims as "nonsense." Earlier, in 2011, he labeled Keefe D's accusations as "pure fiction and completely ridiculous" in a statement to L.A. Weekly.
