Tupac Shakur was shot on September 7, 1996, in Las Vegas. He died 6 days later. No one knows who shot him, though people have their suspicions (and some believe he’s still alive, God bless them.)
Well now apparently we have the rapper’s dying words, from an officer who was at the scene of the crime. His name is Chris Carroll. Here’s his story from Vegas Seven, via Madam Noire:
So I’m looking at Tupac, and he’s trying to yell back at Suge, and I’m asking him, ‘Who shot you? What happened? Who did it?’ And he was just kind of ignoring me. He was making eye contact with me here and there, but he’s trying to yell at Suge. And I kept asking over and over, ‘Who did this? Who shot you?’ And he basically kept ignoring me. And then I saw in his face, in his movements, all of a sudden in the snap of a finger, he changed. And he went from struggling to speak, being noncooperative, to an ‘I’m at peace’ type of thing. Just like that.
He went from fighting to ‘I can’t do it.’ And when he made that transition, he looked at me, and he’s looking right in my eyes. And that’s when I looked at him and said one more time, ‘Who shot you?’
He looked at me and he took a breath to get the words out, and he opened his mouth, and I thought I was actually going to get some cooperation.
So what were Tupac’s last words?
And then the words came out: ‘F-ck you.’
After that, he started gurgling and slipping out of consciousness. At that point, an ambulance showed up, and he went into unconsciousness.
Well, there we go. Not what I would have chosen, but I hope to God I am never in that scenario.
In May of 2013, Tupac’s former bodyguard was found dead.
What would your last words be, if you could choose? Let’s get morbid. And who do YOU blame for Tupac’s death?
