Rapper 50 Cent just name-dropped Diddy in connection to hip-hop legend Tupac Shakur's death and the arrest of his murder suspect, Duane Keith "Keffe D" Davis.

In what seems to be an attempt at trolling, the "Candy Shop" rapper told Diddy that it's "Time to Lawyer up" as the investigation into the death of Tupac comes to a massive moment.

As we reported, Keffe D was taken into custody in Las Vegas on September 29, where he was charged with one count of murder with a deadly weapon. Before this, Keffe D had made several incriminating statements over the years, linking him to TuPac's death.

In another interview, Tupac's brother, Mopreme, also spoke about the possibility of Diddy being involved in his death. Although he did not accuse the "Coming Home" rapper directly, he referenced Keffe D's claims, saying it was worth investigating.

"I don’t have to do anything. This individual [Keefe D] mentioned [Diddy’s] name. Law enforcement has a job to do. Will they do it? It does feel like Pac is being vindicated because back in them days when things were going down, everybody thought he was crazy," Mopreme stated during an appearance on "Comedy Hype."

He continued, "He may have not expressed it properly but that don’t mean he was wrong. Ya dig? So we’ll see."

"It’s bittersweet for a number of reasons. The time, of course, was 27 years, and it didn’t have to be this way. It didn’t have to happen at all. We have to live with the reality that my brother’s not here,” Mopreme said. "It ain’t over. We still gotta see if there [are] accomplices. We still gotta see the motive."

According to The Sun, Keffe D had “openly mocked the prospect of justice for many years” before he was taken into custody as a suspect in Tupac's murder.

The Los Angeles native was said to have often boasted about being instrumental in the demise of the hip-hop legend and taunted at the possibility of being brought to justice.

An insider told the news outlet, “He felt that the police were never going to take action against him two decades after the killing; he almost went into hyperdrive talking and boasting about his role in the death.”

“He’d be at parties and events, enjoying the limelight, being considered the man who knew the secrets of how Tupac passed.”

According to the news outlet, his arrogance, "foolish attitude,” and “lack of knowledge of the law” caused his arrest.
