So with the excellent hologram production of Tupac onstage with Snoop Dogg at the Coachella festival, now Suge Knight is stoking the fires of urban legend, claiming that he isn’t truly convinced that Tupac is really dead, according to TMZ.
n 93.5 KDay FM this week, after radio hosts Tattoo and Cee Cee asked Knight about the allegations that he killed the iconic rapper, Knight responded, “People say, ‘God is going to judge me,’ but I got a 45-inch bullet in to my skull from grabbing, pulling him [Tupac] down [when shots were fired].”
But when Knight was prodded about the circumstances around Tupac’s burial, things got interesting. Knight insinuated that because Tupac’s mother, Afeni Shakur, wanted Tupac buried quickly, cremation was chosen. Knight then went on to further shroud Tupac’s cremation in mystery:
“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.”
When one of the hosts asked if he had ever seen Tupac’s body after he was killed, Knight added:
“Nobody seen Tupac dead…. Maybe the question is…Pac’s not really dead…Pac’s somewhere else.”
No the shock of his fans worldwide, Tupac was gunned down September 7, 1996, as he rode in Knight’s car, after attending a Mike Tyson-Bruce Seldon boxing match at MGMin Las Vegas. At a stop light, a white Cadillac reportedly pulled up and fired a barrage of shots, with four of them hitting Tupac in the thigh, right hand, pelvis, and chest.
Tupac reportedly died six days later at University Medical Center, after enduring several surgeries and resuscitations.
