Is Tupac still alive?
Conspiracy theories surrounding celebrity deaths are not new, but a rap mogul son’s claims that legendary rapper Tupac is alive – and living in Malaysia – has got the rap world buzzing with confusion.
For those of you who are too young to know – Tupac Shakur, widely considered one of the best rap artists of all time, was reportedly gunned down in 1996.
As with all great artists, Tupac’s untimely death at 25 was met with disbelief and over the years, many conspiracy theories have suggested that he was not actually dead.
But these claims have largely been dismissed – until now. And that’s all thanks to an Instagram account which is believed to belong to Suge J. Knight, the son of rap mogul Marion “Suge” Knight .
Suge J. Knight had posted an image on his Instagram account claiming that Tupac was alive on Oct 3. But things just became more bizarre from then.

Knight followed up with a series of photos and videos purportedly showing what looked like Tupac posing with American celebrities such as 50 Cent, Beyoncé and Kanye West.
Not only did Knight claim that the rapper, who would be 47 years old today, was alive, he also claimed that Tupac was last seen at Batu Caves in Malaysia, and that secret society Illuminati was trying to silence him for revealing the truth.
A man who looks like Tupac was even seen in one the videos Knight uploaded. That video alone has garnered more than 2.4 million views.
Needless to say, Knight’s claims have left fans divided. While some believe he is telling the truth, others point out discrepancies in the video which prevent them from believing Tupac is alive.
And although many people are doubting his claims, Knight seems bent on proving that the Illuminati is trying to kill him.
One Instagram user asked why Tupac had not aged a day, while another known as lizparadis__ wrote: ” If he was (alive) I don’t think he would be taking pics with Kanye and Beyoncé lol I could see him in witness protection not out and about”.
A user named charitydavis1 was convinced by the evidence, writing: “That is pac!!!! You can tell when he stood up the way he turned and looked that’s him just older omg I knew it I knew he was alive”.
Another user, tierneysimmons, wrote: “No Death certificate no body. Fake autopsy photos of a cut open body.”
