Six months ago, we reported that Suge Knight knew who killed the legendary rapper and musician, Tupac. Yep, Suge was 100% sure that Tupac was dead. In fact, he confirmed that the rapper had actually been killed by mistake – because the real murderer (his ex-wife Sharitha) had tried to kill him instead. She just got the wrong guy.
However, it seems Suge Knight just can’t make up his mind, as he is now fueling the conspiracy theory that Tupac is still alive. You know, just six months after he maintained he was dead…make of that what you will.
Suge made the new and improved claims during an interview for an upcoming documentary, ‘Who Shot Biggie and Tupac?’ The former Death Row Records CEO is currently serving a prison sentence for an unrelated murder and attempted murder. He spoke to the popular rapper, Ice-T and journalist Soledad O’Brien through a phone interview from the LA County Jail. When asked about the drive-by shooting that supposedly killed Tupac in 1996, Suge confirmed that something didn’t seem quite right…
When I left that hospital, me and Pac was laughing and joking. So I don’t see how somebody could turn from doing well to doing bad.
As soon as he said this, Ice-T and O’Brien probed him even more, asking whether he truly believed that there could be a possibility that Tupac was still alive. He responded, ‘With Pac…you never know.’
Since 1996, Tupac fans across the world have maintained that Tupac is indeed alive – despite the fact doctors confirmed he had suffered multiple gun wounds and internal bleeding. Because of this, the internet has been plagued with conspiracy theories that Tupac actually faked his own death, and is now alive and well, hidden from public view, with his money and a few secretive friends for company. In fact, the most popular conspiracy theory surrounding his ‘death’ is that Tupac staged his own murder, and left his old life behind to start a new one on the Caribbean island of Cuba. Why Cuba, you ask? Well, his auntie (the revolutionary Black Panther, Assata Shakur) lives under political asylum in Cuba. Makes sense. Kinda.
Suge Knight has not clarified whether he believes the Cuba side of the story to be true, but he’s changed his mind already so we won’t put anything past him. What do you think?
