On September 7, 1996, Shakur attended the Mike Tyson – Bruce Seldon boxing match at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. After the boxing match, Shakur spotted 21 year-old Orlando “Baby Lane” Anderson, a member of the Southside Crips in the MGM Grand lobby. Shakur rushed him and knocked Anderson down, and Shakur’s entourage beat him. The incident was captured on the hotel’s video surveillance. Anderson and a group of Crips had beaten up a member of Death Row’s entourage in a Foot Locker a few weeks earlier, precipitating Shakur’s attack. After the fight with Anderson, Shakur met up with Suge Knight to go to Death Row-owned Club 662 (now known as restaurant/club Seven). Shakur rode with Knight in Knight’s 1996 black BMW 750i sedan,[31][32] as part of a larger convoy of cars including some of Shakur’s friends, The Outlawz, and bodyguards.

At approximately 11:15 PM, while stopped at the intersection of East Flamingo Road and Koval Lane, Shakur was shot in a drive-by shooting. Shakur was hit four times, twice in the chest, and once each in his arm and thigh, while Knight was scratched in the head by a piece of flying glass.

At the time of the shooting, Shakur was riding alongside with Suge Knight, with his bodyguard following behind in a vehicle belonging to Kidada Jones, Shakur’s then-fiancĂ©e. The bodyguard, Frank Alexander, stated that while he was about to ride along with the rapper in Suge Knight’s car, Shakur asked him to drive Kidada Jones’ car in case they were too drunk and needed additional vehicles from Club 662 back to the hotel. Shortly after the shootings, the bodyguard reported in his documentary, Before I Wake, that one of the convoy’s cars drove off after the assailant but he never heard back from the occupants.

After arriving on the scene, police and paramedics took Shakur and Knight to the University Medical Center. Shakur was placed on life support until his death six days later, on September 13, 1996, at 4:03 PM PDT at the age of 25. The official cause of death was respiratory failure and cardiac arrest. After his death, Shakur’s body was cremated. His ashes were spread over Los Angeles, the Pacific Ocean, Shakur’s aunt’s land and his mother’s land in North Carolina, and some has been mixed with marijuana and smoked by The Outlawz.[33] Family and friends plan to spread the remaining ashes during a ceremony in Soweto, South Africa. The ceremony has been delayed from September 13, 2006, to June 16, 2007, which would have been Shakur’s 36th birthday.[34]

Is Tupac Alive?

Most fans (over 83% in a recent survey) still hold on to the belief that Tupac Shakur may still be alive. There are many suspicious details about his departure that contribute to this.

The uncontested facts:

After leaving the Tyson fight on Saturday September 7, 1996, Tupac was alledgedly shot 5 times. He lived through the shooting and was taken to a nearby hospital. He was pronounced dead on Friday September 13, 1996.

The suspicious facts:

Friday the 13th is a very suspicious day.

There were never any pictures released of Tupac in the hospital.

In the song “Life Goes On”, Tupac raps about his own funeral.

The driver of the car in which Tupac was riding, Suge Knight (the executive producer of Death Row Records), didn’t show up for questioning about the shooting.

The video “I ain’t Mad at Cha” was released only a few days after his death. “I ain’t Mad at Cha” is track 13 on the album All Eyes On Me. The video shows Tupac as an angel in heaven. In the video, Tupac was shot after leaving a theater with a friend, which is very similar to how he was shot in real life.

Interestingly, Tupac dies in his last video released under the name “Tupac”. His new video “Toss It Up” from the new album was released under the name “Makaveli”. The second video to be released by the name Makaveli is “To Live and Die in L.A.” But how could they shoot the second video when he is “dead”. Do you really think the video was shot 4 months ago, back in August of ‘96? Think about it.

In the video “Hail Mary” released under the name Makaveli, there is a gravestone that says Makaveli. But the gravestone is cracked and there is a hole right in front of it, inferring that Makaveli rose from the dead.

A shooting involving Snoop Doggy Dogg occured close to the release of his album Doggystyle. The shooting made Snoop appear more “real” and showed his fans that he really was a gangsta. The shooting gave him respect because everyone that bought his album believed what he was talking about. Within one week of its release, Doggystyle went platnium. Snoop was signed to the same label as Tupac which is Death Row Records.

In December ‘96, Tupac’s new album went platinum. In interviews prior to the shooting, Tupac talked about how he wanted to stop rapping and being a gangsta and get out of the limelight. What is the only way Tupac could completly escape the media spotlight ??? (Answer: if the public thought he was dead.)

Press wasn’t going to be allowed at the funeral, but then the funeral was cancelled for unknown reasons.

Tupac always wore a bulletproof vest, no matter where he went. Why didn’t he wear it to a very public event like a Tyson fight? (Because he wanted to make it seem like he could be shot.)

In most of his songs he talks about being buried, so why was he allegedly cremated the day after he “died”? And since when do they cremate someone the day after death in a murder case?

The new Tupac album released on Nov. 5, was originally supposed to be an EP of 6 songs, but was then extended to a full length album of 12 songs.

Tupac’s alias is Makaveli. Though the spelling is different, Machiavelli was a 16th century italian philosopher who advocated the staging of one’s death in order to evade one’s enemies and gain power. In Machiavelli’s book Discourses Upon the First Ten Books of Titus Livy, in Book 2 Chapter XIII he says “a prince who wishes to achieve great things must learn to deceive”. This is Machiavelli’s main idea and is the connection between Tupac and the writings of Machiavelli.

Tupac studied Machiaveli in depth while in prision was a fan and had read his books several times. Perhaps Tupac is taking his advice. Machiaveli wrote two books before his death. Look at what the All Eyez on Me disks are called..

The title of the new album by Makaveli (Tupac) is The 7 Day Theory. He was shot on September 7th; and survived on the 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th, and“died” the 13th. Hence the title The 7 Day Theory.

Tupac’s album All Eyes on Me was released on Feb.13, 1996. Tupac “died” on Sept.13, 1996. It is quite a coincidence that the two dates are exactly 7 months apart.

Tupac officially died at 4:03 PM. 4+3 = 7 Also he “died” at an age of 25 years. 2+5 = 7. It seems as if seven is Tupac’s number.

There is nothing in the new album that says TUPAC RIP 1971–1996. Wouldn’t it make sense to include something like that in the first album after his “death”? The only thing mentioned is “EXIT TUPAC ENTER MAKAVELI”.

The executive producer of The 7 Day Theory , as listed in the CD booklet of the album, is Simon (who is a previously unknown producer in the rap music industry). In the bible, Simon was an apostle of Jesus. Simon was one of the first witnesses of the Resurrection listed by Saint Paul (I Cor. 15: 5). The Outlawz have confirmed Simon is a reference to Suge Knight who was with Tupac the night of the shooting.

In Richie Rich’s album Seasoned Veteran, which was released on the same day as The 7 Day Theory, on the song “N*ggas Done Changed” which is a duet with Tupac, Tupac says the following lyrics: “I’ve been shot and murdered, can’t tell you how it happened word for word / but best believe that n*ggas’ gonna get what they deserve.” This phrase implies that Tupac knows he will be dead when Richie Rich’s album is released.

In Makaveli’s (Tupac’s) song “White Man’s World” on album The 7 Day Theory, he says “We ain’t never gonna walk off this planet unless ya’ll choose to.” Did he choose to walk off the planet by faking his death?

In Tupac’s song “Ambitionz az a Ridah” on the album All Eyes On Me, he says “Blast me but they didn’t finish, didn’t diminish my powers so now I’m back to be a muthaf*ckin’ menace, they cowards thats why they tried to set me up, had b*tch *ss n*ggas on my team so indeed they wet me up, BUT I’M BACK REINCARNATED.” This implies that Tupac is reincarnated as Makaveli.

Tupac “died” in Las Vegas which is a payoff city, meaning all sorts of folks have been known to be on the take. That means doctors, press, lawyers, etc.

The white Cadillac containing the assailants was never found… How could this be when Vegas is in the middle of a desert?

There’s a small Black community on the North side of town.. This strip is only about 8 blocks long.. If the attackers were Black.. Where did they go? Where did they hide?

The white Cadillac containing the gunmen passes a entourage of Tupac’s boys, many of them body guards… No one gives chase and there are no witnesses…There were no witnesses on the street… How come? Why not, especially right after a heavyweight fight?

The cover of Tupac’s album Makaveli has him looking like Jesus Christ… Could he be planning a resurrection?

Las Vegas is in the middle of the desert. How come there was no helicopter chase? If some one were to rob a casino, the LVPD would’ve chased you down with some helicopters.. . How come this didn’t happen with 2Pac shooting?

There were no ballistic tests in the murder case… At least we haven’t heard about them….

Tupac’s vehicle got shot 12 times and Suge didn’t get hit once.. He was ‘grazed’ by a bullet.. Why did 2Pac get shot all those times and Suge not get hit?

Suge said he drove Tupac to the hospital and they had a coherent conversation? How bad was Tupac hit?

Tupac had completed 2 movies and 3 LP?hat have were to be released.. With so many people upset about Tupac’s death, literally anything connected with him is bound to net a whole lot of cash…
