RAPPER Tupac Shakur’s death was faked, according to the sensational claims made by a pal of the hip hop star.
Tupac, whose 1996 album All Eyez On Me has sold over 5million copies in the US, was shot four times in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas on September 7, the same year.
The 25-year-old was pronounced dead six days later.
The gunman has never been caught.
Wild conspiracy theories connected to his death have swirled about ever since with some not even accepting the star is dead.
Too Short, a friend of Tupac, believes the rapper is not dead.
Footage shows the 52-year-old responding to a question about the possibility that Suge Knight, the founder of Death Row Records, set up the killing.
Too Short denied that, adding: “Because he’s not dead.”
After being questioned by the interviewer, Too Short added: You must live with your truth.
“I’m just saying that every politician did not die of f***ing car crashes. Some of them got killed.
“Some of those plane crashes were deliberate.
“For this s*** to spill over into hip-hop is a possibility.”
Recently Michael Nice, who claims he was part of Tupac’s security team before his death, said he had played a part in faking his murder and later cremation.
In footage on YouTube he said: “I’m going to deliver the goods,” before issuing unverifiable claims that the rapper was now living in Cuba.
He said: I’ve got video evidence of the guy who was [Tupac’s] body double I took to Cuba.
“There’s been rumours there were many body doubles, I can confirm I know one body double – I can prove it.”
Sun Online has understandably been unable to verify these wild new claims
Suge Knight’s son, also called Suge, made the claim that Tupac was actually living in Malaysia.
Suge himself has also fuelled the conspiracy theories, saying in 2014 that Tupac wasn’t dead and was “somewhere smoking a Cuban cigar”.

There are a host of other wild, uncollaborated theories out there, including ones speculating why he wasn’t wearing his bulletproof vest despite being obsessed with protecting himself after a previous shooting.
Even speculation surrounds his cremation with the cremator saying he was 6ft and weighing 215 pounds while his drver’s licence said he was 5’10” and 168 pounds – and the cremator has never been seen since – supposedly.
