Did you guys hear? Suge Knight saw the Tupac hologram, lost his mind, and now he’s claiming that the dead rapper was never dead. Same story, different cast of characters, and yeah, it totally makes sense that Tupac would fake his own death, blah blah blah NOT. From TMZ:
There is a VERY good chance Tupac Shakur is alive and well … and hiding … this according to the man who was with him during the supposedly fatal shooting in Vegas, Suge Knight.
Knight just appeared on 93.5 KDay in L.A. with Tattoo and Cee Cee … and pumped some major fuel into the biggest urban legend in hip hop … that Tupac FAKED his own death.
Knight says his theory explains why cops never found his murderer — because there was no murder.
“Maybe the question is … Pac’s not really dead … pac’s somewhere else,” Knight says.
When asked if he ever saw Tupac’s body following the 1996 shooting, he adds, “Nobody seen Tupac dead. ”
Knight explains, “The person who supposedly cremated Tupac … this guy got about 3 million dollars .. personally from me … cash … and next thing I know I never heard from the guy or seen him again … he retired and left.”
OK, here’s my theory: Tupac got tired of all the fame, the money, the women, the public adoration, and at the ripe old age of twenty-five, instead of making some kind of lame-ass announcement that he was “retiring” (hello, Amanda Bynes! Lookin’ at you, girl!), he decided that he’d go out with a bang—no pun intended. He’d disappear from the streets of LA, flake out on all of his friends, his family, and his lovers, and not come back until the technology was in place to pretend that his grand return was a festival out in the desert as a holographic image and then hide behind that ’til he got bored. I hear the next big plan is for the Tupac “hologram” to go on tour, until “Tupac” gets sick of it and kills himself off the scene again.
Sure, right? No. Sounds like someone’s been watching too much Jem to me.
