Did Sue Knight Killed Tupac Shakur?
Suge Knight might not have had a hand in the murder of the famous rapper-singer, but he knows the one who did it. After decades have passed, Knight has finally come forward as to who were the real culprits behind the murder. According to him, it was Reggie Wright Jr. and his wife Sharitha who wanted to kill Suge to gain full control of Death Row Records and were the one behind the shooting that took Tupac’s life.
According to LAPD insiders, Tupac, in an attempt to get out of jail, sold his soul to the devil and started to work with Suge. His situation compelled him to make this decision, and unwillingly he found himself associated with the LA gang Mob Piru. Many even think that it was because Tupac wanted to leave Death Row and wanted to start his label that Suge got him killed.
The day that Tupac was shot dead he was involved in a dispute with Orlando Anderson of the Crips at the MGM Grand Casino in Las Vegas. The way a gang works is that if you mess with one of us, we will mess with one of you and that brought Shakur in the line of fire.

Did P.Diddy Kill Tupac?
The mystery of Tupac’s murder is more entangled than one can think of. According to another insider from LAPD, it was P.Diddy who was the one that got Tupac killed. The retired LA police officer hinted that P.Diddy paid a whopping sum of 1 million to a former gang member Duane Keith “Keffe D” Davis to get Tupac out of the way. The claims have been refuted by Diddy who calls it a work of an idle and fictional mind.

Did Notorious B.I.G?
As unbelievable as it might sound, there are those who believed that the late rapper played a part in the murder of Tupac. Notorious BIG himself didn’t live for long and met the same fate as Makaveli, but there are those who think that Notorious played a part in the crime just because he was in the NYC recording studio close to the crime spot.

A Larger Crime Indeed!
There are those who believe that a bigger power was in hand to eliminate Tupac Shakur. This is simply because unlike other rappers, Tupac was using his music and lyrics to throw light on matters that the government was trying to sweep under the rug. Considering the sway he had on his fans and the powerful figure he was soon becoming at such a young age, it was better to eliminate him rather than have him create a stir that can bring other important figures under scrutiny. Tupac was crusading to politicize young black gang members who worried the Law Enforcement Department. His efforts could have brought an end to the gang wars forever.
Is Tupac Alive?
The most famous controversy theories doing the rounds is that Tupac is still alive and that he faked his death. Tupac had taken on the nick name Makaveli after the famous philosopher Niccolò Machiavelli. The Italian philosopher had once famously written that ‘to fool one’s enemy, fake one’s own death.' Many claimed that the philosopher had also faked his own death at 25 and had returned at 43. Though how authentic this claim is, no one knows, but Tupac believed it.
