Whoooa! Suge just dropped a bombshell! The former rap business mogul recently said that he knows who killed Tupac, and in fact, it wasn’t one person but two. And one of these people are very close to Suge. Whollan! Ati keh?
Another chapter in the saga of the investigation of Tupac Shakur’s murder has been revealed as Suge Knight‘s lawyer says in an affidavit that Suge knows who killed the West Coast rap icon and that it was, in fact, Suge himself who was the intended target of the hit.
The rap mogul made the claims through lawyer Thaddeus Culpepper and said that his ex-wife Sharitha and Death Row Records security chief Reggie Wright Jr. were behind the infamous drive-by shooting, WENN reports. Tupac was shot in Las Vegas on September 7, 1996 riding in the passenger seat of a BMW that Knight was driving after they attended a Mike Tyson boxing match. He died six days later.
The story is told in the documentary Tupac Assassination: Battle For Compton, which was released on DVD earlier this year. When Knight found out about the project, he reportedly sent out private investigators to find how the filmmakers knew what happened that fateful night.
“He admitted to Culpepper that the theories in the movie were true,” a source said.
The theory says that Sharitha and Wright conspired to take out Knight to take over Death Row. It’s not a new theory, though. A similar chain of events was put forth in the book Tupac 187: The Red Knight, which was co-written by former LAPD detective Russell Poole and the same people behind the Battle For Compton film, Michael Douglas Carlin and Richard Bond.
Knight is currently sitting in jail awaiting trial for murder charges.
Tupac’s life will be featured in the upcoming biopic, All Eyez on Me, due out in June.
