After 27 years an arrest for the shooting death of rapper Tupac Shakur has finally happened; yet another Kardashian relationship gets hard-launched (Kardashian-adjacent – this time it’s Kendall) and hints a Kayne Ye West album is on the way – this what’s happening this week.
Tupac Shakur Shooter Arrested
After 27 years, a bombshell development has shaken the world of hip-hop. Duane Keith “Keefe D” Davis, long associated with the Tupac Shakur murder mystery, was finally arrested in Nevada on September 29 and charged with murder using a deadly weapon. This historic arrest marks the first direct connection to Tupac’s 1996 murder on the Las Vegas Strip, a case that has been hampered by a lack of cooperation from witnesses.
Davis’s own admissions in interviews and his 2019 memoir, Compton Street Legend, place him in the Cadillac with Shakur’s shooter on that fateful night. Davis also faces charges related to criminal gang involvement unrelated to the shooting of Shakur. This arrest brings new hope for justice and closure for Shakur’s fans and family, raising questions about whether this arrest will finally crack the enigmatic case that has haunted the world of hip-hop for so long. Stay tuned for updates as the story unfolds.
Kendall Jenner Hard Launches Bad Bunny Into Gucci
Don’t ever let it be said that a Kardashian or Jenner don’t make the most of a marketing opportunity. This time, it’s modal Kendall Jenner who has appeared with apparent beau Bad Bunny in the latest campaign for Gucci’s luxury travel label, Gucci Valigeria.
Regarding the shoot, the official statement by Gucci – which had their own hard launch of sorts recently with the debut show from new creative director Sabato De Sarno – describes the campaign as being “shot in an airport, the meeting place where journeys begin, the campaign explores the intimacy of traveling together through the creative lens of Anthony Seklaoui. Stills capture the fleeting spirit of Kendall Jenner and Bad Bunny’s airport stroll, redefining the Jet Set glamour of the 1990s.”
Who Keeps Leaking Kanye’s New Music?
