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 Tupac’s allies, many of them bodyguards. Four unidentified men pulled alongside Suge’s car, fired 13 rounds, and sped away.

Time magazine reports that police spokesman Phil Roland said, “We’re puzzled that his whole entourage had their heads turned and didn’t see anything.”

     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 “I Ain’t Mad At Cha.” 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 “To Live and Die in L.A.” he wore a pair of the new Jordan’s before they even came out. Tupac’s name change also leads one to believe his death has been faked.
