The ‘Tupac conspiracy theory’ is a name that is now common among people who believe that rappers and musicians in the United States are influenced by radical Islamic fundamentalism. The name itself identifies the theory, which holds that Tupac Shakur and other prominent rappers of his time were murdered as a part of a conspiracy by radical elements within the US government. There are people who support this theory, especially since some of the lyrics that the rapper produced was against US policy in the war in Iraq. The controversy surrounding this theory began almost a decade ago, with the rapper being shot dead in a drive-by shooting.
All About The Tupac Shakur
It is believed that Tupac Shakur was targeted because he was working on a music video. Some people who oppose the theory say that he was exercising his freedom of speech and exercising his right to express his own political views. Others say that he was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time and that those who attack his family and friends are doing so to stir up emotions and to instill fear and to discourage any kind of disobedience. Even so, the conspiracy theories surrounding Tupac’s death continue to circulate, with many people coming to the conclusion that Tupac Shakur was murdered as a warning to other rap artists against participating in what is commonly known as “white terrorism” in America.
Another reason that the conspiracy theory about Tupac being murdered has gained currency is that his close friend and hip-hop producer Mark Price were also killed in a similar manner, while attempting to organize peace between the rapper and the individuals fighting in the War on Terror in America. Price was an associate of Suge Knight and his wife, equally well known for their extreme anti-American views and for threatening many American citizens with violence if they did not stop criticizing America and support the war effort in Iraq. There are even reports that suggest that Price was planning to organize a large show in Chicago to help raise money for the cause, with his own fans as the attendees. If this was true, then Tupac could very well have been murdered in order to shut down this fundraiser and force a group of his fans to leave the country.
Truth Of The Matter
The truth of the matter is that Tupac Shakur is alive and well, and that he continues to tour around the world. He continues to make music, even if some of his fans may not like his style any longer. He has released music videos for songs from his last album, entitled The Real nigga Album, as well as new songs that have only gained ratings and praise from all over the world. One of these songs, titled “Hit the floor,” has continued to go platinum every single time it has been played, which is an indication that his fans do still love him.
Despite all of this, there are still a growing number of conspiracy theorists who believe that Tupac was murdered in a drive-by shooting in Florida. Some of these conspiracy theorists claim that the shooting was done by someone associated with the WorldStar Network, which is a company owned by Beyonce Knowles and her husband, Russell Simmons. Other alleged shooters have claimed that they were members of the Crips and Bloods gang. Either way, the fact of the matter is that Tupac Shakur is still alive and well. But as is so often the case with celebrity deaths, there are more theories surrounding his exact circumstances than there are facts surrounding his death. Whatever the case, there is no doubt that those who believe that Tupac died because of a conspiracy have seized this opportunity to still continue their attacks on the singer and his friends.
The Tupac Conspiracy Theory
As it turns out, Tupac Shakur was indeed “shot” in the drive-by shooting, although many people have disputed this version of events. Some say that Tupac was hit in the leg and that the bullet missed his hip bone. Others say that he was actually hit in the head while walking down a street in California. Either way, the incident caused a huge rift between him and his mother, wife and son. They immediately called police to report that their friend was in the hospital, but others are not convinced that this happened. Instead, they believe that Tupac was hit by a car as he walked down a California street.
While conspiracy theories abound about Tupac’s death, there is still no clear answer as to whether the musician truly died or if he was simply injured and unable to continue working. Rumors and speculations about what really happened have prevented the musicians from making any records following his death. Even now, some of his songs are being played at various memorials. But there are also plenty of examples of his music still being played around the world, especially by fans of his hip-hop lyrics and style of music. The fact that his untimely death has only fueled more speculation about his life and death makes it all the more important for him and his family to ensure that they accurately convey his legacy.
There is no doubt that Tupac Shakur was an exemplary musician. His music and his lyrics had a huge impact on people all across the country and the world. But even after his untimely death, his influence on other artists like Biggie Smalls, Ice-T, Eazy-Gangsta, Rakim and others cannot be overlooked and is what makes conspiracy theories about his death so intriguing.
