Suge Knight Jr. claims 2pac is still alive and living in Malaysia

Following yesterday’s indictment of hip-hop and Death Row Record CFO Suge Knight on charges of manslaughter, his son, Suge Knight Jr., has openly claimed that Tupac Shakur, the presumed-dead rap icon from the 1990s, is alive and well and residing in Malaysia. He made the claim in an Instagram post last night saying “Tupac is alive” and supposedly backed himself up with ‘evidence’ in ensuing Instagram posts.

Suge Knight Jr.’s claims have reignited a contentious debate over Tupac’s death and the identity of his shooter.

Knight Jr. posted two unverifiable photos of the former rap icon with modern stars 50 Cent and Beyoncé, both of whom become celebrities after his death. There is no evidence or time stamp on any of these pictures, merely ambiguous captions.

At first glance the vast majority of viewers suspected that the photos were either photoshopped or the musicians in the images were twin doppelgangers of the artists. 

This isn’t the first time Knight Jr. has made controversial assertions. In the past, he has spoken out against his father’s various convictions and has defended Bill Cosby, the former tv-star indicted for sexual abuse.

Knight Jr. backed up his claims with references to the world Illuminati, claiming they have hidden Tupac’s real whereabouts and are now after Knight Jr. for “saying too much”.

“Beware of fake accounts. Their job is to distract you. The Illuminati are all about power. This is why you see powerful names getting locked up.”

The reaction on Twitter has been mixed. The vast majority seemed to laugh off his theories as utter drivel, even claiming he’s on drugs. However, many also supported Knight’s theories and many were outraged over what they saw as disrespectful claims about the former rapper.

Since he was shot four times on the La Vegas strip in 1995, numerous theories over the nature of his death and the identity of the shooter have been posited. Most recently, Knight Sr. had implicated former Death Row Record Chief of Security Reggie Wright Jr. in his recounting of the murder. In addition, a man named Duane Davis recently confessed that he was in the front seat of the car from where Tupac was shoot, yet he did not name the shooter due to a Crip gang code.
