A new book by former Los Angeles Police Department Detective Greg Kading alleges that the murders of Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls were orchestrated by Sean “Puffy” Combs and Suge Knight. In his self-published Murder Rap, Kading also says LAPD engaged in a cover up, suppressed evidence and taped confessions from hired hitmen.

WFPK After Dark host Sean Cannon joined us on Friday’s State of the News to fill us in on the book (and the hip-hop world’s reaction), the end of Hank Williams, Jr.‘s relationship with ESPN, and the passing of folk music icon Bert Jansch.
