In honor of Tupac Shakur’s 44th birthday (June 16), we’ve compiled the best conspiracy theories the internet has to offer in regards to the infamous 1996 Las Vegas shooting. 2Pac is without a doubt one of the best rappers ever and his death is still an unsolved mystery leaving many hip hop heads to believe that Tupac is alive. With that said, we’ve compiled some of the most compelling and convincing arguments to support the theory that he never died. What do you think — Is Tupac still alive?
FBI Witness Protection Program
Tupac is alive and well as a member of the witness protection program for cooperating with the FBI in their investigation of Suge Knight and Death Row records. This theory would make sense considering there have been numerous Shakur sightings in New Zealand and Cuba.
Tupac changed his name to Makaveli, inspired by Italian Philosopher Niccolò Machiavelli who’s book Art of War discussing faking one’s death.
