Raps super villain has now ignited the flames that make up Tupac’s suspicious death.
The date is September 7, 1996. Tupac and Suge Knight stop at a red light at East Flamingo Road and Koval Lane. Suddenly Tupac has been shot four times, two in the chest, one in the arm, and one in the thigh. Tupac’s injuries were just too serious and six days later he passed away in the University Medical Center of Southern Nevada.
It has always been though that the assassins were after Tupac, however, new evidence from Suge Knight may change the circumstance we thought we knew about the death of raps superstar. Suge Knight is claiming that the hit was intended for him. It must be noted that he was at the wheel of the BWM that was riddled with bullets leading to Tupac’s death.
The new evidence comes from a signed affidavit from Knight’s lawyer Thaddeus Culpepper. Knight claims his ex-wife Sharitha and former Death Row head of security Reggie Wright, Jr. Knight claims he was their target, and Tupac was just unlucky to be caught up in Knight’s personal problems. All the evidence will be presented in the new documentary, Tupac Assassination: Battle for Compton. According to Knight everything that will be present in the documentary is true.
A spokesperson for the film, reported to Music News: “Culpepper told Carlin individually that not only did Knight confirm the events as portrayed in Compton, which portray Knight was the intended target and Shakur as collateral damage, as true, but also goes on to allege that these 1996 events may have been the first in a history of attempts on Knight’s life, culminating in the recent attempted killing of Knight at the 1OAK Club in Los Angeles, where Knight was shot six times.”
We do not know if the evidence that will be present in this documentary will give us the true identity of Tupac’s killer. Reggie Wright, Jr who Knight is placing the blame on said this to Allhiphop in 2015 concerning his involvement in Tupac’s death. “All these people are dropping dead. I keep telling people God don’t like ugly. I hope people learn a lesson from this”. Wright may have been just been trying to fan the flames again with those comments but one cannot ignore the menacing tone of those words.
