Tupac Shakur

Tupac has brought his fans together with his music, poetry and acting. But this dead or alive dilemma has split these fans into two groups. Those who believe he is still alive and believe he has faked his death. The others are the ones who believe he has lived, and has lived well but is now at peace.
Why would anybody have reason to believe that he is still alive? People have a good reason to believe that he is still alive. One reason is that the facts that point to him being alive largely outnumber those which insist he is dead.
Many people have researched into this. They have uncovered unbelievable facts and have developed extremely intriguing theories. Theories which get even professionals to rethink their opinions on his death actually happening.Even the most skeptical people have changed their opinions. I am not writing this essay to change people opinions. I am writing this essay to bring out all of the facts and theories. By doing this I can perhaps bring people to see what can be a monstrous coincidence or the greatest scam I have ever heard of in my life.
This is an essay on the controversy and happenings of Tupac Amaru Shakur's so called death. This is not a biography on his life. However I will have to sum up his life for better comprehension of these facts and theories which I will reveal.
June 16th, 1971 in Brooklyn, New York. Lesane Parish Crooks was born. Left by his father, Alice Williams, Tupac's mother changed his name from Lesage to Tupac Amaru Shakur. Tupac has moved from Oakland to New York and back again. When he was fifteen he was into writing rap lyrics and gang related subjects. By the time Tupac was eighteen he had been arrested eight times, even serving eight months in prison after being convicted of sexual abuse. Tupac studied the teachings of a war strategist known as Machiavelli in prison.
"After some time Tupac released his own album "2Pacalypse Now", which was a success. His career skyrocketed; he became tight with main pawns in the rapping industry. Tupac signed to Deathrow Labels and released songs and albums with them."
Throughout all of this Tupac had made rivals with many people. He was beginning to be hated by just about everyone. He had his talent by his side though and he began filming movies.
In November 1994 Tupac was shot five times, where thieves made off with forty thousand dollars worth of his possessions. He released his better albums after that incident.Tupac's career was going high and going low. He himself at times wasn't doing so well.

Tupac Dead? Thug Life Gone?

On September 7th, 1996 Tupac Shakur was going to a boxing match with his good friend/ceo of deathrow records Suge Knight. After the boxing match Tupac and Suge Knight got in their car and began to drive down the busy streets of Las Vegas. Minutes after leaving the fight Tupac was shot down in a drive by shooting while sitting in the passenger seat of Suge Knight's car. A single bullet did not touch Suge Knight. He was brought to the University Medical Center of Las Vegas Nevada, Where he officially died seven days later, September 13th, 1996, of gunshot wounds and respiratory failure.
T his was at the peak of Tupac's rapping career. Fans were shocked to hear that Tupac Shakur was dead. Especially since Tupac fans were also big rap fans which meant they enjoyed the music of Notorious B.I.G. who was shot and killed as well. Between these two great rappers being killed rap fans everywhere were in bad shape.
However the good side of this is that before Tupac died, him being on the Westside, he was feuding with Notorious B.I.G., from the Eastside. This feud caused many deaths and many rappers their careers. With the death of both main men, Tupac and Biggie, the feud had died down. People were still upset over the loss of their favorite rappers however.

Don Killuminati The Seven day Theory

Two months after his death on November 5th, 1996 Tupac Shakur now known as Makaveli released Makaveli Don Killuminati The 7 Day Theory, an album with a title that could mean a lot.
From that moment on theories and rumors began to spread like wildfire of Tupac still being alive. People were constantly claiming to have seen Tupac in person. Sightings were reported in New York and the island of St. Thomas. Over 83%, in a recent survey, still believe that Tupac is still alive. There are many suspicious facts that contribute to this. Below are all of the facts and theories that contribute to this controversy.
Suge Knight, the driver of the car, was not even grazed by a bullet while his passenger friend was connected with twelve bullets. These events occurred in Las Vegas moments after a Mike Tyson boxing match. Tupac was always known to where his bulletproof vest and have bodyguards by his side because of feuding rappers. However it was not on the night of the shooting. Why would Tupac remove his bulletproof vest for a very public event like a Tyson fight? His bodyguards didn't even give chase to the black assailants in the Cadillac.
The white Cadillac containing the gunmen passed an entourage of Tupac's boys, many of which were bodyguards. There were no witnesses however and none of the bodyguards gave chase, especially after the heavyweight boxing match. The White Cadillac containing the black assailants was never found. This is very strange considering the fact that Las Vegas is in the middle of the desert, there's a small black community on the north side of town. The strip is eight blocks long, the killer's would have no place to go. Especially since in Las Vegas the police pursue by chopper, except for no reason that did not happen the night of Tupac's shooting.

When Tupac was in the University medical center of Las Vegas Nevada, there were never any pictures taken. It could've been private, which I myself doubt since last time Tupac was shot he made it very public. Perhaps they did not want the press to take pictures. The driver of the car, Suge Knight, did not show up for questioning about the shooting. Seven days after Tupac was shot he died. His funeral was planned to have all of his friends there, which is pretty much the rap industry. For unknown reasons however his funeral was cancelled even though the press would not be allowed to show in the first place.

A few days after his death, Tupac's video "I Ain't Mad At Cha" was released as originally planned. The song is track thirteen on the album; thirteen happens to be the day Tupac died. The music video shows Tupac getting shot and dying while leaving a movie theater with his best friend. This is strangely similar to what happened in real life. That last video was released under the name 2pac. The next video released was under the name Makaveli.
Tupac studied Machiavelli books in depth while he was in prison. Machiavelli wrote two books before his death entitled Book One and Book Two. Tupac's CD released before his death, "All Eyez On Me", was a double CD with each CD called Book One and Book Two. "Tupac's alias, Makaveli, although spelled differently; Machiavelli was a 16th century Italian philosopher who advocated the staging of one's death to evade his enemies." Tupac's next video was released under the name Makaveli as well. In this video, "Hail Mary", there is a gravestone that has Makaveli engraved on the front and there's a crack on it and hole in front of it. This could be inferring that Makaveli "rose from the dead".
Tupac's album released after his death under the name Makaveli, Tupac is portrayed on the cover crucified on a cross. On the back of the CD marked as the executive producer is Simon. Simon is previously an unknown producer in the rap industry. In the Bible, Simon was an apostle of Jesus. Simon was one of the first witnesses of the resurrection of Jesus. The Outlawz, Tupac's rap group, have confirmed Simon is a reference to Suge Knight. Suge Knight was riding in the car with Tupac when he was shot, this could very well mean we should be expecting a "resurrection".
Tupac always used to write about being buried, however he was cremated the day after his death. Since when do they cremate somebody the day after a murder case with no autopsy? In interviews prior to his shooting Tupac talks about stopping rap, "gangsta life"
and getting out of the limelight. There would be no better way for Tupac to escape the media then for him to fake his death and disappear.
Now of course all of these are just parts that people have put together to say that Tupac is still alive. These can all just be a big coincidence. However the facts that I am about to reveal make this whole thing very eerie. Tupac's CD released after his death, "Makaveli The Don Killuminati Seven Day Theory", must relate to him being shot on the seventh of September and dying seven days later on the thirteenth. Hence The Seven Day theory.
Almost everything related with Tupac since his death has been related with the number seven. Tupac officially died at 4:03pm, four and three are sums of seven. Tupac was twenty five years old when he died; two and five are sums of seven as well. Right at the beginning of The Seven Day Theory album, you can hear Tupac whispering "Suge shot me." Suge Knight was the one in the car with Tupac when he was shot. Suge Knight also owns Deathrow Records, which means the money Tupac makes also goes partly to Suge.

Originally I used to believe fully that Tupac was faking his death with the help of Suge Knight and Deathrow Records. But I also consider the fact that its possible he was setup bye Deathrow. Tupac's name, lyrics and music videos were property of Deathrow when he was killed. Deathrow was also going downhill by the time of Tupac's death. Tupac had been in many movies and had released many LP's. With so many fans upset, literally anything connected with Tupac is bound to net a whole lot of cash.
It is possible Deathrow could have had Tupac killed just to make money and profits off of his death. But to pull that off and for it to work out like it had, would require a lot of cooperation.
According to the Don Killuminati Seven Day Theory, Tupac will resurrect seven years after his "death". This means Tupac will rise again in the rapping industry starting September 13th, 2003. Exactly seven years after his shooting. I say the only way we can decide on whether he is dead or alive is to wait and time will tell.
