Tupac Shakur is alive and well and living in Malaysia according to the son of Death Row Records boss, Suge Knight, who was with him when he got shot.
Suge J. Knight made the sensational claims on Instagram, suggesting the fatal shooting outside a Las Vegas nightclub on September 7, 1996, was faked.
“Tupac is alive… he never left us,” he wrote while sharing images of a man looking like an older Tupac hugging a present-day Beyonce and 50 Cent.
He also shared footage of a man resembling the late rapper filmed in Malaysia before claiming a shadowy organisation is seeking to silence his claims.
Sharing a sinister direct message which read, “You said too much. Time for you to go,” he replied, “The truth will be out and I’m not going anywhere.”
“They’ll be after me soon smh,” he told fans, insisting, “I’m not on drugs.”
He then uploaded a video claiming someone was following him and posted, “Beware of fake accounts. Their job is to distract you. The Illuminati are all about power. This is why you see powerful names getting locked up.”
Conspiracy theorists believe that world events are controlled by the Illuminati – a supposed secret society.
However, Tupac was gunned down in a car next to Suge J’s father in an act of gang retaliation, a Los Angeles Police department source told People last year.
Knight’s links to the Mob Piru gang made him and Tupac a target for rival gang the Compton Crips, according to the source.
Furthermore, Tupac is said to have clashed with Crips member Orlando Anderson at the MGM Grand Casino earlier that day.
“It was simple retaliation: you mess with one of ours, we will mess with one of yours. If Orlando had never been jumped in the hotel, they never would have killed Tupac that night,” the source said.
Aged just 25, Tupac was shot four times – twice in the chest, once in the arm and once in the thigh – as he pulled up outside Las Vegas’ Club 662 in a black BMW owned by Suge Knight.
Despite being placed in a drug-induced coma, he died from internal bleeding in hospital six days later.
But Knight, who is serving 28 years for hitting two people with his car in Compton, killing one, recently revealed he doesn’t believe Tupac is dead either.
“When Pac died… if he really did, you know?” he said on 2017 documentary Who Shot Biggie & Tupac.
Explaining himself, he continued: “I mean, when I left that hospital, me and Pac were laughing and joking.”
“So I don’t see how somebody can turn from doing well, to doing bad,” Suge said.
Asked point blank if he thinks Tupac is still alive, Suge then responds: “I’m gonna tell you that with Pac, you never know.”
