(Above video has nothing to do with this post, but it’s still the creepiest thing of all-time)
Tupac was murdered in 1996 but that doesn’t stop us from talking about it today. Unending conspiracy theories about whether or not Tupac is still alive today, the murderers never being caught by law enforcement, and the recent legal troubles of Suge Knight have kept his death in the news.
Suge Knight is currently facing life in prison for a violent 2015 hit-and-run but has recently confirmed news that his ex-wife, Sharitha, and former Death Row Records security chief Reggie White, Jr. were behind Tupac’s murder and were actually trying to kill Suge Knight in the 1996 drive-by in Las Vegas (the story is that Sharitha saw an opportunity to take over Death Row Records by killing Knight and asked White for help). This news came from a recent documentary called “Tupac Assassination: Battle for Compton”. Filmmakers have recently obtained a signed affidavit from Knight’s lawyer saying that Knight known for “many years” that Sharitha and White were behind Tupac’s murder.
Honestly, this story has been the longest running “fake news” of all-time. There’s been so many different things said by Knight and other parties involved around Death Row Records that I’m not sure what is true anymore. Before he passed, former N.W.A. manager Jerry Heller claimed that Knight “unquestionably” put the hit out on Tupac that night. Some LAPD cop claims he knows that Diddy put the hit out on Tupac and Knight sequentially put a hit out on Notorious B.I.G. which led to his murder. Knight himself has said a different story, claiming in 2014 that Tupac is definitely alive and is living on an island somewhere. There’s so many different theories about Tupac’s murder at this point that you could convince me that any of these are true. Tupac could be hanging out with Santa, the Easter Bunny, and Biggie Smalls on an island off of Cuba, who the hell knows.
With all this being said, it’s a little confusing as to why Knight would reveal this information now just because a documentary is saying the same thing. Knight was even so shocked the documentary claimed this that he sent his own investigators to them to figure out how they found it. It makes you think that this is actually true since it caused one of the biggest bad guys of hip-hop history to SNITCH, one of the most punishable hip-hop crimes there is. If Suge was that shocked that someone else mentioned his ex-wife and White as the murderers of Tupac, well, then they just might be the murderers.
