Tupac has brought his fans together with his music, poetry and acting. But this dead or alive dilemma has split these fans into two groups. Those who believe he is still alive and believe he has faked his death. The others are the ones who believe he has lived, and has lived well but is now at peace.
Why would anybody have reason to believe that he is still alive? People have a good reason to believe that he is still alive. One reason is that the facts that point to him being alive largely outnumber those which insist he is dead.
Many people have researched into this. They have uncovered unbelievable facts and have developed extremely intriguing theories. Theories which get even professionals to rethink their opinions on his death actually happening.Even the most skeptical people have changed their opinions. I am not writing this essay to change people opinions. I am writing this essay to bring out all of the facts and theories. By doing this I can perhaps bring people to see what can be a monstrous coincidence or the greatest scam I have ever heard of in my life.
This is an essay on the controversy and happenings of Tupac Amaru Shakurs so called death. This is not a biography on his life. However I will have to sum up his life for better comprehension of these facts and theories which I will reveal.
June 16th, 1971 in Brooklyn, New York. Lesane Parish Crooks was born. Left by his father, Alice Williams, Tupacs mother changed his name from Lesage to Tupac Amaru Shakur. Tupac has moved from Oakland to New York and back again. When he was fifteen he was into writing rap lyrics and gang related subjects. By the time Tupac was eighteen he had been arrested eight times, even serving eight months in prison after being convicted of sexual abuse. Tupac studied the teachings of a war strategist known as Machiavelli in prison.
“After some time Tupac released his own album “2Pacalypse Now”, which was a success. His career skyrocketed; he became tight with main pawns in the rapping industry. Tupac signed to Deathrow Labels and released songs and albums with them.”
Throughout all of this Tupac had made rivals with many people. He was beginning to be hated by just about everyone. He had his talent by his side though and he began filming movies.
In November 1994 Tupac was shot five times, where thieves made off with forty thousand dollars worth of his possessions. He released his better albums after that incident.Tupacs career was going high and going low. He himself at times wasnt doing so well.
Tupac Dead? Thug Life Gone?
On September 7th, 1996 Tupac Shakur was going to a boxing match with his good friend/ceo of deathrow records Suge Knight. After the boxing match Tupac and Suge Knight got in their car and began to drive down the busy streets of Las Vegas. Minutes after leaving the fight Tupac was shot down in a drive by shooting while sitting in the passenger seat of Suge Knights car. A single bullet did not touch Suge Knight. He was brought to the University Medical Center of Las Vegas Nevada, Where he officially died seven days later, September 13th, 1996, of gunshot wounds and respiratory failure.
his was at the peak of Tupacs rapping career. Fans were shocked to hear that Tupac Shakur was dead. Especially since Tupac fans were also big rap fans which meant they enjoyed the music of Notorious B.I.G. who was shot and killed as well. Between these two great rappers being killed rap fans everywhere were in bad shape.
However the good side of this is that before Tupac died, him being on the Westside, he was feuding with Notorious B.I.G., from the Eastside. This feud caused many deaths and many rappers their careers. With the death of both main men, Tupac and Biggie, the feud had died down. People were still upset over the loss of their favorite rappers however.
Don Killuminati The Seven day Theory
Two months after his death on November 5th, 1996 Tupac Shakur now known as Makaveli released Makaveli Don Killuminati The 7 Day Theory, an album with a title that could mean a lot.
From that moment on theories and rumors began to spread like wildfire of Tupac still being alive. People were constantly claiming to have seen Tupac in person. Sightings were reported in New York and the island of St. Thomas. Over 83%, in a recent survey, still believe that Tupac is still alive. There are many suspicious facts that contribute to this. Below are all of the facts and theories that contribute to this controversy.
Suge Knight, the driver of the car, was not even grazed by a bullet while his passenger friend was connected with twelve bullets. These events occurred in Las Vegas moments after a Mike Tyson boxing match. Tupac was always known to where his bulletproof vest and have bodyguards by his side because of feuding rappers. However it was not on the night of the shooting. Why would Tupac remove his bulletproof vest for a very public event like a Tyson fight? His bodyguards didnt even give chase to the black assailants in the Cadillac.
The white Cadillac containing the gunmen passed an entourage of Tupacs boys, many of which were bodyguards. There were no witnesses however and none of the bodyguards gave chase, especially after the heavyweight boxing match. The White Cadillac containing the black assailants was never found. This is very strange considering the fact that Las Vegas is in the middle of the desert, theres a small black community on the north side of town. The strip is eight blocks long, the killers would have no place to go. Especially since in Las Vegas the police pursue by chopper, except for no reason that did not happen the night of Tupacs shooting.
When Tupac was in the University medical center of Las Vegas Nevada, there were never any pictures taken. It couldve been private, which I myself doubt since last time Tupac was shot he made it very public. Perhaps they did not want the press to take pictures. The driver of the car, Suge Knight, did not show up for questioning about the shooting. Seven days after Tupac was shot he died. His funeral was planned to have all of his friends there, which is pretty
