Diddy’s former bodyguard Gene Deal has made a shocking allegation regarding the murder of 2Pac, accusing the Los Angeles Police Department of being responsible for his death.

In an interview with The Art of Dialogue, Gene Deal talked about comments reportedly made by Suge Knight, implying that the LAPD might have been involved in the deaths of both Pac and Biggie.

“Suge said that Rafael Pérez and David Mack was trying to kill him — those are the same people that was trying to kill B.I.G.,” Deal said, referring to the disgraced cops who faced accusations of conspiring with Suge to murder the Brooklyn rapper.

“‘Cause David Mack and Pérez were seen at the scene! They got pictures of them at the scene! Pérez was picking up bullets at the scene! Cops know you do not mess with the evidence … They couldn’t get Puff, and B.I.G. was collateral damage.”

“So you’re saying that the same people that killed Biggie are the same people that killed 2Pac: LAPD?” the interview asked.

“If Suge says, ‘If you solve one murder, you solve them both,’ I gotta go with the eyewitness,” Deal replied. “I don’t know why Suge would say that when Keefe D says that it was him, Orlando and Dre and them in the car together, but why would Suge say [that]? He said that in the documentary.

“I just believe that somebody was made to say something, and I hope the Vegas Police Department do their due diligence and get down to the bottom of it and make the truth come out … It don’t take a rocket scientist for this, man.”

When questioned about the LAPD’s possible motive for 2Pac’s murder, Gene Deal suggested that ‘Pac had suspicions that someone within Death Row Records was stealing money from him. He implied that the alleged culprit might have hired corrupt law enforcement officers to orchestrate the hit and silence the rapper.

“What’s the root of all evil? Money,” he said. “Somebody wanted control of some money. Some people were spending money that they shouldn’t have been spending money. Some people were stealing money that they shouldn’t have been stealing. Some people had money that they shouldn’t have had.

“I think, if I heard correctly, 2Pac put an audit in two or three weeks prior to his murder and started firing people and trying to figure out where his money was at and where it was going. So now, if you’ve been stealing money and you inside and everything could be connected to you, what are you gonna do?”


Gene Deal is not the first person to make such allegations concerning 2Pac’s murder. In a prior interview earlier this year with The Art of Dialogue, the late rapper’s biological father, Billy Garland, claimed that the U.S. Government played a role in his son’s death.

“He never should have did that,” Garland said of the scuffle, which took place in the lobby of the MGM Grand following the Bruce Seldon vs. Mike Tyson boxing fight. “‘Pac just got hyper and he thought he had to lead.

“If you notice in the video, everybody was following him around. He’s the money-maker. Death Row was the $100 million thing, but everybody’s following 2Pac. Think about that logic.”

“Everything he did, everybody attached themselves to him, and he felt obligated to prove that ‘I’m gonna be your leader.’ And he struck [Orlando] first, only because someone had told him that this is the guy who stole the Death Row medallion.

“Now, the way he did it was off-limits. Cameras every-fucking-where, c’mon, but that’s the irrational shit you do. And you know that broke my heart, but a lot of little shit that he did. But look at all the good shit that he did. Now look what he did, look what he’s done. I don’t think it’ll be done again.”

“Well, I think the key question there is the government,” Garland said. “The government gave him the deal. [2Pac] was being tailed by the government the night of his assassination. He was being tailed by the government while in the studio — that’s a known fact.

“So I don’t know this guy Keefe, I don’t know. Maybe he had to say that to get out of some issue, I don’t know. I just know it looked like a set up to me. Somebody told this guy to stand there with the Death Row thing and it pursued to what we had, but I don’t think [Orlando Anderson] had anything to do with the death of my son…not at all.”
