Treach has recently opened up on the investigation that was undertaken following the murder of his close friend Tupac Shakur, noting his belief that police in Las Vegas know the identity of the rapper’s killer.
The Naughty by Nature star featured on the Drink Champs podcast over the week and was questioned by N.O.R.E. about the recent uncoverings of the Tupac case and the arrest of Duane ‘Keefe D’ Davis.
“I think it’s a testament to if you’re a rapper they’re not gonna investigate it. Anything that was said was said by the perpetrator,” Treach said. “Whatever went on the system first knew a lot of this way before.
He added, “Me, I’m just one, there’s two families on either side of life that’s destroyed. When anyone dies or the shooter, it’s n-ggas against n-ggas… Look at the fucking world, everyone stands with each other.”
The East Coast hip-hop star went on, “Suge [Knight] said they wanted him to get on stand. We cut from different cloths. Nobody is ever going on the stand for shit. That ain’t supposed to stop police from doing their muthafuckin’ job.”
Treach is of the belief that the Las Vegas police had all the evidence they need to make the arrest but refused to push ahead with it. “Nah they been knowing. I’ve seen documentaries for decades,” the rapper said. “Many laying down, many details. If you got on tape in Vegas in a casino of an altercation between different gang factions, that’s a No. 1 suspect,” he added.
He signed off on the matter, “It’s on camera for the cops and then the documentaries come out and say it and we over there like, ‘Duh.’ 20 years ago he would’ve got locked up and he’d be out now. And now you going in, so you never coming out. It’s our people that does it to our people.”
