Suge Knight: “Maybe The Question is ‘Pac’s Not Really Dead”

Witnessing the incredible image of the 2Pac hologram perform alongside Snoop Dogg at the Coachella music festival last week was surreal for many hip-hop fans. For many, it was almost like Tupac Shakur was alive and well again.

But if you ask Suge Knight, Shakur might be still alive.

During a recent appearance on 93.5 KDay in Los Angeles, the former Death Row Records co-CEO fed into one of the biggest urban legends in hip-hop…that ’Pac may still be alive.

“Maybe the question is … ’Pac’s not really dead … ’Pac’s somewhere else,” Knight said live on the air. “Nobody seen Tupac dead. The person who supposedly creamted Tupac, this guy got about $3 million … personally from me … cash … and next thing I know I never heard from the guy or seen him again. He retired and left.”

Of course, Knight was behind the wheel, riding with Tupac, when the rap star was murdered in Las Vegas back in 1996. The murder has remained a cold case through the years, as is the homicide of the Notorious B.I.G.

The 2Pac hologram was a breath of fresh air, only adding to the legend of the late great MC. As previously reported, according to a source that spoke to the Wall Street Journal, reps for Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg are planning out the logistics of putting together a tour that would place the West Coast legends alongside the virtual ’Pac on tour.
“This is just the beginning,” Ed Ulbrich, the Chief Creative Officer of Digital Domain, the company responsible for the 2-D hologram at Coachella, told the Wall Street Journal.—Jakinder Singh

    Suge is still number one suspect as far as most of the evidence suggests. Shit, if there’s anyone on the planet who should be able to say “no guys, pac’s definitely dead” it should be the dude who was convinced him to change his plans the night of the shooting, was right next to him when shit went down, then immediately drove him away from hospital, vanished for a few days following the killing and made a ton of money from his death.

    Whether Pac’s street shit cought up with him and he really did die behind some gang banging shit or the government assassinated him I believe he’s DEAD. Even if he faked his death, how and why would he come back? If nothing else that’s tax evasion lol. Suge’s just playing into everybody’s suspicions just to fuck with people.

    yo wat suge is tryna say is tupac never died. lemme break it down for ya’ll..ok tupac went to prison where he got all the info he needed..he found out big and puff had sumthing to do wif the shooting, illuminati , and he read the art of war written by the real makaveli..he basically planned everything in jail and who bailed him out Suge did..he told suge the plan and suge agreed and that’s when the scheme started..long story short tupac faked his death to kill his 2pac image and Makaveli was his new alias…think about it nobody never seen pac dead but he pays 3 mil for him to get cremated? to decoded wat suge said it means that he gave pac the 3 million so he can retire..when he says the cremator he means tupac..everybody was involved in the scheme..Las Vegas, Hospital, Police, Keefe D , Orlando Arnerson, Yaki, everybody!!!..and wat kills me is that Pac left so many clues to show ppl his scheme and all these supposed die hard pac fans that claim they listen to his music after all these years still don’t see
