Sorry Everybody, Tupac is Probably Dead
On September 7th, 1996, Tupac Shakur was shot multiple times on a Las Vegas road, and died a few days later. For most of his fans, that was the end of the road. The king of West Coast rap was dead, and few people would ever be able to match his prowess. But, some people believed, and still do believe that Tupac is alive. No one was caught for the murder, and Tupac's remains were cremated, which led many to believe that he wasn't dead at all. There have been reported sightings of Tupac in South Africa, and even in other rappers' music videos. Even Suge Knight, who was in the car with Tupac when it was shot up, claims that he's still alive. But one of the most interesting theories is the Makaveli Theory. Tupac changed his rap name to "Makaveli" for his last album, and many believe that this is a sign that he's still alive. The real Makaveli, author of The Prince, suggested that faking one's death is good move to gain power, and Makaveli did this, and then revealed himself eighteen years later. Many theorists believe that Tupac would do the same, and reveal that he has been alive for the last eighteen years. This September marked eighteen years since Tupac's death, but as far as I'm aware of, Tupac didn't return. This seems like the final nail in the Tupac conspiracy's coffin. Sorry everyone, but it's October 1st, and Tupac hasn't returned.
