Man claiming to be a time traveller from 2030 claims that Tupac faked his own death
It's often been said that there were two sides to Tupac Shakur. On the one hand, the man was a legend, and one of the biggest names in rap music in the nineties. A true renaissance man and poet of the streets, Tupac's work sought to expose social and racial inequality, and shine a light on the persecution and disadvantage experienced by people living in the ghetto. He ended up selling 75 million albums worldwide, and was hugely influential to an entire generation of other rappers.
However, his life and career were also marked by scandal, violence and controversy. He made a number of enemies as a result of his often-confrontational attitude, and was famously shot five times and robbed in the lobby of a recording studio in New York City. He later served a prison sentence as a result of rape charges made against him (which he vigorously denied) all of which culminated in his tragic murder.
In Las Vegas on the night of September 7, 1996, Shakur was shot four times in a drive-by shooting, and died six days later of respiratory failure and cardiac arrest at the University Medical Centre. Ever since then however, rabid fans and conspiracy theorists have speculated that Tupac may have faked his death to escape his enemies. In fact, even time travellers from the future seem to think that something was amiss in regards to his death.
Yes, you read that right: time travellers. Allow me to elaborate: a YouTube video which features a person who claims to have come here from the future (via unknown means) has opened up the whole can of worms again. In an interview on paranormal YouTube channel ApexTV, a masked man going by the name "Noah", claimed to have travelled to the present day from the year 2030, in which most people know that rapper Tupac Shakur faked his death.
Noah stated: "When I was in the future I was trying to get as much information s possible from anybody ... I was able to figure out that Tupac isn't dead but was in a critical condition for about a year ... The reason why all this happened is because his friends that were rapping were involved in the illuminati ... They tried getting Tupac in there but he found it terrible."
He added, "He didn't tell them if he was going to say anything about it or not but they take things to the extreme. They are able to shoot him and say he's dead. He wasn't going to die but he was critically injured. Their goal was to keep him from the public."
Should we believe people who say they own a time machine? It's probably best to take these claims with a (very) generous helping of salt. Personally, I don't buy it, but there's still a part of me that wonders "what if it is true?" You never know.
