Tupac Shakur Is Still Alive
On September 7, 1996, Tupac Amaru Shakur was riding in the passenger side of a black BMW driven by Marion Suge Knight, president of Death Row Records. Tupac and Suge had just finished watching Mike Tyson defeat Bruce Seldon at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. Tupac was standing up through the sunroof while the car was stopped at a traffic light. The Cadillac containing the gunmen passed an entourage of Tupacís allies, many of them bodyguards. Four unidentified men pulled alongside Sugeís car, fired 13 rounds, and sped away. No one gives chase and there were no witnesses on the street. How come? Why not, especially after a heavyweight fight? Tupac was shot in multiple places including his pelvis, hand, and torso. Suge was grazed in the head w/ a slug of a bullet fragment. On Friday, September 13, 1996, he was reportedly pronounced dead at 4:03 p.m. at the University Medical Center in Las Vegas. But, did he really die? There are many suspicious details about his departure that contribute to this theory. It is supposed that Tupac is still alive b/c of things said before and after his death, actions done before and after his death, and other reports.
ďI got a big money scheme, and you ainít even wití it,Ē 2Pac states in the song ďI Ainít Mad At Cha.Ē 2Pac certainly earned a lot of money by faking his death. His LP All Eyez On Me (1996), rapís first 2 disc album, shot back up to the Billboard top 10 in the weeks following his death. His latest CD, The Don Killuminati: The Seven-Day Theory, recorded under the alias Makaveli, debuted on the Billboard charts as the number one album in the nation. By selling 664,000 copies, it surpassed the ďgoldĒ plateau in one week and is now a multi-platinum hit. Sales of his other CDís also increased dramatically, w/ his third solo album, Me Against the World (1995), actually climbing back onto the Billboard charts.
Las Vegas is a payoff city, meaning all sorts of folks have been known to be on the take, like lawyers, doctors, press, etc. When Tupac was in the Las Vegas hospital and one of his lungs was removed, the doctors were tight-lipped about his condition. One nurse made the public statement that Tupac would live and that she was positive of it. The fact that a trained medical professional stated clearly that 2Pac would live shows that his condition may have been much better than what was reported at the time. Suge Knight released a statement that in an interview that after the shooting occurred, 2Pac was awake and making conversation in the vehicle. Apparently, Suge was trying to find a hospital and 2Pac laughed before saying, ďWhy are you taking me to the hospital, youíre the one who got shot in the head.Ē Perhaps the most pressing piece of evidence that he is still alive isnít what has been said, but has remained unsaid. Time magazine reports that police spokesman Phil Roland said, ďWeíre puzzled that his whole entourage had their heads turned and didnít see anything.Ē
Actions have been taken that lead us to presume that 2Pac has to still be alive. A majority of these actions were taken by 2Pac himself. In interviews prior to the shooting, he discussed how he wanted to stop rapping, being a gangster, and step out of the limelight. Approximately one month before the shooting occurred, Tupac recorded a new video for the song ďI Ainít Mad At Cha.Ē In this video, 2Pac walks out of a Las Vegas club and is shot much in the manner of how his death had really occurred. He dies in the ambulance and goes to heaven. Is the fact that the September 7th shooting closely resembles his video extremely coincidental or was it planned? Also, while on the subject of videos, in the video ďTo Live and Die in L.A.Ē he wore a pair of the new Jordanís before they even came out. Tupacís name change also leads one to believe his death has been faked. Back in early 1996, when he released All Eyez On Me, he had a few tracks that featured
