New Documentary Claims Tupac Shakur Knew His Killer

(SL) – A new documentary claims Iconic Rapper Tupac Shakur knew who his assassin was, but law enforcement didn’t care to further the investigation.

His murder remains a mystery. But several specialty shows have pointed fingers at corrupt cops with gang affiliations for being responsible for both Tupac and Biggie’s death.

Tupac was gunned down on September 7, 1996, while driving through Las Vegas. Numerous people – including fellow New York rap hero Biggie Smalls, aka the Notorious BIG – were implicated in the death.  Biggie would be killed  almost 6 months to the day after Pac was killed.

Former LAPD detective Russell Poole believed both murders were orchestrated by Suge Knight. Poole who spent half of his career investigating the killings died suddenly in August 2015 while meeting with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s homicide investigators to discuss a cold case. Poole reportedly suffered a heart attack.

But the identity of Tupac’s killer has remained a mystery – because the cops didn’t care to look any further,

Biggie’s Mom Voletta Wallace Blasts Kendall And Kylie Jenner For Trying To Profit Illegally Off Of BIG And Pac’s Likeness

(SL) – The Kardashian/Jenner are know for borrowing ‘other people’s stuff’ and turning it into their own. But, I don’t know how far they’re going to get trying the estates of Christopher Wallace ‘Notorious BIG’ and Tupac Shakur.

The latest scandal comes in the form $125 shirts featuring the likeness of Biggie and Pac and of course themselves. The garments have received heavy criticism from various people and now Biggie’s mom is calling the sisters out for their blatant disrespect and exploitation.

In the limited vintage collection the Jenners’ faces and the brand’s logo have been printed over the shirts’ original artwork—which includes images of rap artists Tupac and Biggie, plus album art from Metallica, Pink Floyd, and more.

Who told them that it would be a good idea to superimpose their images over the likes of these great artists is beyond me. Countdown to the next lawsuit in 3,2….and ….

Shakur Davis was taken to the hospital where she died at 10:28 p.m. Afeni was in the middle of a bitter divorce with her estranged husband who allegedly wanted stake in Tupac’s estate which has been operated by Afeni since he was murdered in 1996.
In a tweet the office stated, “Sheriff’s Coroners Office will lead an investigation to determine the exact cause & manner of Afeni Shakur’s death.”
Though she is best known as Tupac Shakur’s mom, she was also a Black Panther as a young adult and an activist and philanthropist in her later years. Her drug use and addiction to cocaine is no secret.  Tupac rapped about it often and she even spoke candidly about falling from grace and rising from the ashes of her own hell.
These lyrics from ‘Dear Mama’ sum it up: In it, he rapped “And even as a crack fiend, mama, you always was a black queen, mama/I finally understand, for a woman it ain’t easy trying to raise a man/You always was committed, a poor single mother on welfare, tell me how you did it/There’s no way I can pay you back, but the plan is to show you that I understand.”
As a matter of fact, she had only been clean for 5 years when Tupac was gunned down in Las Vegas. She resisted the urges to delve back into her old bad habits and founded Amaru Entertainment to keep her son’s music alive.
She often pushed the Arts movement for children, crediting the world of creativity as the outlet that kept her son on track.

In one of her many interviews, she said, “Arts can save children, no matter what’s going on in their homes,” she said. “I wasn’t available to do the right things for my son. If not for the arts, my child would’ve been lost.”
She provided the majority of the money to begin the $4 million first phase of the arts center, while her Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation hosted poetry and theater camps for youngsters in the Atlanta area.
“I learned that I can’t save the world, but I can help a child at a time,” she said, pointing out that her new life of philanthropy wouldn’t have been possible without the influence of her legendary son. “God created a miracle with his spirit. I’m all right with that.”
Shakur Davis is survived by daughter Sekyiwa Shakur.
