Suge Knight has stirred up the conspiracy theories that claim Tupac Shakur faked his own death and is still alive, hiding out somewhere overseas (Cuba? Malaysia? Take your pick!).
The former Death Row Records boss was interviewed for an upcoming documentary called ‘American Dream / American Knightmare,’ where he claimed that Shakur had spoken about faking his death just a few months before he was murdered in Las Vegas, in 1996.
Suge reportedly stated:
The video in question was ‘I Ain’t Mad At Cha:’
We’re not sure about this one at all…
It seems like, for whatever reason, Suge is fanning the stories just like his son – who has also recently said that Tupac is alive (even saying that he had been in the studio recording with him!).
Look, let’s not get it wrong, Tupac was an inspirational man, artist, and figure – and his loss was a grave one for culture and society.
But, unless he actually steps out to prove otherwise, we’re willing to let him rest in peace.
We don’t understand why Suge would want to keep going over this tragedy* – Tupac was his friend, who was shot right beside him, right?
(*Other than to try and hold onto the remnants of his ‘fame,’ perhaps?)
