Tupac Murder Files Released by the FBI

Following the release of an exhaustive report on the still-unsolved murder of the Notorious B.I.G., the FBI has released and posted files relating to late rapper Tupac Shakur. [View here]

As previously reported, the FBI posted a 359-page document surrounding the death of the Notorious B.I.G. on a section of its website dubbed The Vault.

The file they posted on Tupac, however, spans just 102 pages. The document details an extortion scheme allegedly perpetrated against ‘Pac and late N.W.A. founder Eazy E by the Jewish Defense League, a Jewish nationalist group that has been characterized as a domestic terrorist organization by the FBI.

The scheme reportedly involved an anonymous subject making death threats against well-known rap artists such as Shakur and E by telephone, at which point the JDL would step in and offer protection services to the targeted superstars for a “fee.”

‘Pac was shot four times in Las Vegas in September of 1996. He was 25. —Lauren Carter
