Suge Knight says Tupac might still be alive in an upcoming FOX special "Who Shot Biggie & Tupac?"
Everyone’s heard some sort of conspiracy theory that Tupac might still be alive, and it turns out one of the most closet men to him when he was alive thinks so as well. According to a clip that TMZ was able get a hold of, Suge Knight believes that there's a good chance that Tupac Shakur might still be alive. Suge says something about Pac's hospital stay after the 1996 shooting just doesn't add up for him.
The Death Row CEO revealed this information to Ice-T and Soledad O'Brien over the phone from the L.A. County jail. The clip TMZ was able to get their hands on comes from an upcoming TV special called "Who Shot Biggie & Tupac?” where Ice T and Soledad will lead an investigation into the unsolved murders and uncover new accounts of the shootings from people who were there. The special will air this Sunday, September 24 on FOX, so set your DVR’s now.
TMZ says they're going to get Ice T’s reaction to Suge’s theory on Friday's episode of TMZ Live. However knowing Fox’s ability to run with obscure stories and stretch the truth, this seems a little odd that only now Suge Knight is saying this about ‘Pac. Plus, who knows if there’s any extra editing done by FOX to twist his words around, or if that’s even Suge’s voice on the phone at all. For all we know it could be someone who sounds just like him, but FOX is trying to make a special with it, along with a Biggie theory.
Check out the exclusive clip from Sunday’s special (below) and let us know what you think. Is this simply a marketing ploy to get people to watch Sunday or do you think there’s any truth here?
