Suge Knight Doesn't Think Tupac Is Really Dead

By Rob Markman

If you let Suge Knight tell it, last weekend’s holographic Tupac performance at Coachella wasn’t entirely necessary because the former Death Row CEO believes that the beloved rapper is still alive. During a Friday morning interview with 93.5 KDay radio hosts Tattoo and Cee Cee, Suge suggested that the rapper faked his own death.

In a snippet of the interview which has surfaced online Knight rattles off his conspiracy theory about the 1996 murder. “People know what happened at the end of the day,” he started before he name checked Diddy and the Notorious B.I.G. and some other individuals who he purposely did not name.

“You got an individual on there who said, ‘Okay,’ we did this shooting. Puffy was there, Biggie was there. The hit was already paid for to kill Tupac, this is how it happened and they break everything down to a tee.”

Suge goes on to reference a Crip gang member who he says confessed to the murder. After questioning why said individual isn’t sitting in jail for the murder, Knight goes on to reveal his theory. “Then maybe the question is that ’Pac really not dead and ’Pac’s somewhere else and sh--,” he said before laughing. “I mean it’s the truth if you really look at it.

“Nobody seen Tupac dead,” he continued.The majority of Suge’s rant was incoherent, as he seemingly skated passed key points in his argument. To cap things off the embattled music figure then pointed to the man who was hired to handle Shakur’s cremation as some sort of central figure in the conspiracy. “This guy got about $3 million personally from me—cash. And next thing I know I never heard from the guy or seen him, he retried and left,” he said.
