Another year another crazy claim about Tupak being alive and in hiding. This one actually has a whole documentary around it.
The film alleges Shakur escaped from University Medical Center in Las Vegas after he was gunned down in 1996.
Shakur was hit four times in a drive-by shooting as he was being driven by notorious record producer, Suge Knight, after watching a Mike Tyson fight at a casino in Sin City. The 25-year-old was struck in the chest, arm and thigh by the four .40 caliber rounds.
The legendary musician died in hospital from his wounds six days later and the killer has never been caught, despite numerous theories over the identity.
But filmmaker Rick Boss purports that Shakur did not pass away in hospital and in fact sneaked out of the ward and fled to New Mexico to start a new life. Doesn’t that sound like something he would do?
Boss says the Native American tribe, who live throughout New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado, and Utah offer a perfect hideaway as FBI agents are not allowed on their land.
The filmmaker alleges the rapper arrived in Las Vegas for fight night and was told of a planned hit on him.
That was when the escape plan, involving planting a double in Knight’s BMW and a strategic aerial exit by helicopter, was born.
