Most fans (over 83% in a recent survey) still hold on to the belief
Tupac Shakur may still be alive. There are many suspicious details
departure that contribute to this.
The uncontested facts:
After leaving the Tyson fight on Saturday September 7, 1996, Tupac was
alledgedly shot 5 times. He lived through the shooting and was taken to
nearby hospital. He was pronounced dead on Friday September 13, 1996.
The suspicious facts:
Friday the 13th is a very suspicious day.
There were never any pictures released of Tupac in the hospital.
In the song "Life Goes On", Tupac raps about his own funeral.
The driver of the car in which Tupac was riding, Suge Knight (the
producer of Death Row Records), didn't show up for questioning about
The video "I ain't Mad at Cha" was released only a few days after his
"I ain't Mad at Cha" is track 13 on the album All Eyes On Me. The video
shows Tupac as an angel in heaven. In the video, Tupac was shot after
leaving a theater with a friend, which is very similar to how he was
Interestingly, Tupac dies in his last video released under the name
His new video "Toss It Up" from the new album was released under the
"Makaveli". The second video to be released by the name Makaveli is "To
and Die in L.A." But how could they shoot the second video when he is
"dead". Was the video really shot 4 months before his death, back in
In the video "Hail Mary" released under the name Makaveli, there is a
gravestone that says Makaveli. But the gravestone is cracked and there
hole right in front of it, inferring that Makaveli rose from the dead.
A shooting involving Snoop Doggy Dogg occured close to the release of
album Doggystyle. The shooting made Snoop appear more "real" and showed
fans that he really was a gangsta. The shooting gave him respect
everyone that bought his album believed what he was talking about.
one week of its release, Doggystyle went platnium. Snoop was signed to
same label as Tupac which is Death Row Records.
In December '96, Tupac's new album went platinum. In interviews prior
shooting, Tupac talked about how he wanted to stop rapping and being a
gangsta and get out of the limelight. What is the only way Tupac could
completly escape the media spotlight ??? (Answer: if the public thought
Press wasn't going to be allowed at the funeral, but then the funeral
cancelled for unknown reasons.
Tupac always wore a bulletproof vest, no matter where he went. Why did
remove it at a very public event like a Tyson fight?
In most of his songs he talks about being buried, so why was he
cremated the day after he "died"? And since when do they cremate
day after death in a murder case?
Tupac's alias is Makaveli. Though the spelling is different,
a 16th century italian philosopher who advocated the staging of one's
in order to evade one's enemies and gain power. In Machiavelli's book
Discourses Upon the First Ten Books of Titus Livy, in Book 2 Chapter
says "a prince who wishes to achieve great things must learn to
This is Machiavelli's main idea and is the connection between Tupac and
writings of Machiavelli.
Tupac studied Machiavelli in depth while in prision was a fan and had
his books several times. Perhaps Tupac is taking his advice. Machiaveli
wrote two books before his death. Look at what the All Eyez on Me disks
called.. Machiavelli's books were called, "Book 1," and, "Book 2." The
of, "All Eyez On Me," are entitled the same
One of Machiavelli's books is, "Discourses Upon The First Ten Books Of
Livy," which it's claimed Tupac read in jail. In Book 2, Chapter XIII
says, "a prince who wishes to achieve great things must learn to
This is very similar to verses in some of Tupac's songs.
Some say that Tupac modified the Machiavelli name because if you
the letters, they spell, "Am Alive," or, "I Am Alive."
The title of the new album by Makaveli (Tupac) is The 7 Day Theory. He
shot on September 7th; and survived on the 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th,
and"died" the 13th. Hence the title The 7 Day Theory.
Tupac's album All Eyes on Me was released on Feb.13, 1996. Tupac "died"
Sept.13, 1996. It is quite a coincidence that the two dates are exactly
Tupac officially died at 4:03 PM. 4+3 = 7 Also he "died" at an age of
years. 2+5 = 7. It seems as if seven is Tupac's number.
There is nothing in the new album that says TUPAC RIP 1971-1996.
make sense to include something like that in the first album after his
"death"? The only thing mentioned is "EXIT TUPAC ENTER MAKAVELI".
I know as a sure thing that Tupac is alive. He's down in Mexico living it up. How I know? My lawyer's friend is Tupac's lawyer. Couple of reasons why tupac never comming back to the states: tax evasion, people wanna blast him, rape charges, etc.
Now, biggy. He's as dead as the president heads in my wallet. That's a sure thing.
I love tupac and have just about every single song he ever made, even underground ones memorized. I also used to believe he was alive, but lately I've been thinking that maybe he is dead, just because that whole 7 year theory thing passed with no word and just seems like he's gone by now. If you notice his latest album, almost all of the songs were just tracks laid out that producers put music to in the background.
I am doubting he is alive anymore, but I would NOT be surprised if he is.
Either way, I still listen to his stuff and think he is the best rapper of all time.
I think there are similar coincidences in the presidents and vice presidents with last names and stuff that I read somewhere, with JFK & Johnson etc. Anyhow, I do believe that Tupac is dead. All these theories came about from over-analyzing the givens just like Shakespear's works. However, I am a big fan of Tupac & Biggie and their songs are legendary, timeless too. If they were to be alive, they both would've made some awesome songs.
heard years ago that he was down in Jamaica smokin' ganja
he's hitting a 4 footer with Biggie & Elvis there according to some tourists that visited Jamaica.
Instead of the 7 day theory, perhaps it's the 7 YEAR theory?
He died in 96... returns in ?2003? Possibly.
I believe he is still alive... if he isn't back after 2003.. then R.I.P. 2Pac.
Also, in an episode of MTV's TRL.. Carson Daly was reading some cards of e-mails sent in.. one of them said: "Did you think I'd die? - Rukahs, Africa" and then Carson said, "Oops, wrongcard."
Rukahs, spelled backwards, is Shakur... It is also place in one of his music videos... also, there really is a place in Africa called Rukahs.
Thought about all of that stuff many times. Personally, I think Tupac is still alive, but I don't know how he pulled it off. With all the photographers out there, someone is bound to take a picture of him sometime....I think. Who knows? What I do know is someone is still making a ____load of money off of his music!
I hope ya people don't make him out to be a Black Elvis pleeeeease he's as dead as dead can be, and to dispell some things, he was a nice lyracist but there are better ones out there, Rakim, KRS-ONE, Big Pun, Mos Def, Talib, Black thought, hell even Big L was nastier with the words. Sorry to dispell people but i can put any of these fellas works against anything that 2-Pac had and point out better anologies, phrasing, descriptions, word play.....etc............
