Where are ya, Pac?

Seven years ago today, on Friday September 13, 1996, Tupac Shakur (2Pac) died after being shot a few days earlier. All sorts of theories floated about with “proof” about how he was still alive and how he’d be returning seven years after his supposed “death.” In addition, a “new” song (really a mixtape freestyle) has been floating around Ebay as supposed proof that Tupac’s alive, where he takes shots at current rappers and discusses things that have happened since his death.

Me, I never put much stock in any of the theories, though I was surprised at the time how quickly after his death his body was cremated.

In any event, today’s the day. So far, no news (that I can see) about Tupac’s return. Chatting recently with a friend I said that if he does come back (whether it’s today or a month from now), I will buy every album he ever releases in support of the greatest publicity stunt ever (even if faking one’s death is against the law).

That nigga Pac is dead but (Makaveli) aint. I Been a fan my whole life and he is somewhere in Cuba or some other Communist Country. I mean there is a (law) that states that u have to be gone for ten years in order not be be prosecuted for faking your death. Only 10 days away. Holla if ya hear me

Alright, alright, alright. This is crazy.

Last night, I had this sudden urge to learn about Tupac and his death. I’m not sayin’ that he *is* dead, and I’m not sayin’ that he *isn’t*. I spent hours and hours reading about his death and the conspiracy theories.

I have come up with two theories, and I have very good reasons. And yes, I have seen the autopsy picture. Real or not, I don’t know. Anyways, I think that he either, one, was killed by Suge Knight or, two, faked his death.

Think about it, Death Row Records owed 2Pac $9,892,814. If they killed him, they wouldn’t have to pay him. They’d save *a lot* of cash. Plus, they could put out all of Pac’s unreleased shit and get the money from that, too. Also, Pac was leaving Death Row Records because his contract was up. If he was dead, they’d eliminate the competition from Makaveli Records (the record label that Pac was planning on starting). And in an interview Knight was asked if he knew who killed Pac would he tell the police. Knight replied, “Absolutely not.” What’s up with that? Another thing, one of the members of The Outlaw Immortalz, who went by the name “Kadafi” was going to cooperate with the police. Soon after Pac’s death, Kadafi turned up dead, too. Suspicious? And this is really creepy. Have you listened to the first three seconds of the Makaveli record? The very first three seconds. Turn it up. Listen to it. Before the first bell. What’s that say? “Suge killed him.”? Heh. And the last thing I’ma say about this’n, Suge and Pac reportedly got in an argument because Suge wanted Pac to take his bullet proof vest off. Reason? Suge claimed it was ‘hot in there’. But why would he want *Pac* to take *his* vest off? Hmm…

2Pac was cremated the day after he died. Since when does some one get cremated the day after a murder? There was no autopsy. Plus, no one can ask to dig up his grave like they wanted to do with Elvis and like they did with Abraham Lincoln. So, please, someone explain to me how the autopsy picture got out. This doesn’t make sense. At all. In a 1994 interview with Tupac, he said before he went to prison that if he was ever sent to prison when he came out he would be worse than before. He was. He also said when he came out it would be like he was reborn. Was he speaking literally? He already died and he was worse when he came out of jail, plus Tupac switched his rapping name from 2Pac to Makaveli, that could be considered a rebirth, all that’s left is a physical rebirth, a sighting, and so far he’s already completed more than half of this prophecy. The producer on the new Makaveli album is simply “SIMON.” This was the apostle who helped Jesus carry the cross and one of the first to witness his resurrection. Could Suge be Simon? 2Pac’s video ‘I Ain’t Mad At Ya’ foretold his death …. 2Pac dies in that video, then a new video came out under the name “Makaveli”. Its just like 2Pac died in “I Ain’t Mad At Cha”, and Makaveli was born in “Toss It Up”. Exit 2Pac Enter: Makaveli. It all makes sense. In the video “Toss It Up”, 2Pac is supposedly wearing some Penny Hardaway sneakers which were not available at the time of his death!!!! Also, some say in the video “Live & Die In LA” when 2Pac jumps in the car you see that he is wearing some Michael Jordan sneakers which were not available at the time of his death!

Remember, I’m not saying he *is* dead, and I’m not saying he *isn’t*. I’m just sayin’. My theories *do* make sense.

Tupac’s mom Afeni, wishes for all the fans of her son the “late” and great Parrish Crooks alias Tupac Shakur alias Makaveli, to let her Son Rest In Peace. On September 13, 2006, I just like many others awaited the return of the man I’ve loved ever since I was old enough to know the difference between real music(tupac) and bad music(biggie). I will try to the best of my abilities to carry out Afeni’s wishes, but deep in mt hear I truly believe Tupac Shakur is Still Alive. Whether or not he’s still alive, I don’t know, but he will always be alive in my heart. I love you Tupac, Always and Forever, Your Faithful Fan and Lover.

i dont know if hes dead or not but his recent albums are suspicious and why is all his songs about faking his deaths. why would he record a song for 2 years later. they said he was a forward-thinking man but why would he think that far into the future? some of the lyrics are weird too he raps about the movie Armageddon, the broncos won the superbowl, and the world trace center bombed when that happened well after he died.

Mony!! September 17, 2006, 4:51 am

wht? wht song does he rap about all that stuff??

i have 260 2pac songs and non of em he talks about the worldtrade centre or even amegeddon!!!

It feels as though I just learned to deciphered a “language” while reading some of the previous comments.

Okay, so someone give Half a Buck (50ยข) the brand new 2pk (Tupac) CD and they can all play together and learn how to behave. Or better yet be *good* role models for the same folks who think the ‘thug life’ is the way to be.
