Let’s cut to the chase, folks, Tupac Shakur is alive – but it’s not who you think it is.
Official records state that Tupac, aka one of music’s greatest hip-hop artists, was killed in a shooting back in 1996, an incident that remains unsolved even to this day and has spawned many theories that he’s actually still alive and in hiding in Cuba.
Tupac A. Shakur (who shall be referred to as Tupac 2.0 from henceforth), a 40-year-old white man with a bunch of questionable neck tattoos, on the other hand is still alive and in some trouble with the law after trying to live the thug life in Tennessee.
According to TMZ, Tupac 2.0 was arrested after a wild encounter with police. Officers reported to a call about the guy,who had active warrants out for his arrest, and found him fleeing in a car.
After he was caught, Tupac 2.0 reportedly pulled a knife on the cops and was quickly apprehended after getting crash tackled to the ground. After he was detained, cops say they found a syringe and several baggies of meth.
Once Tupac 2.0 was in custody, he was charged with aggravated assault, resisting arrest, simple possession of methamphetamine and unlawful drug paraphernalia, and was placed on an $18,000 bond.
Who would’ve thought we’d get a “a white Tupac Shakur gets arrested” story in 2019? The universe has a strange sense of humour, especially after seeing the mug shots of both Tupacs side-by-side.
It’s been well over a decade since Tupac was shuffled off this mortal coil under mysterious circumstances so seeing him come up again under the guise of a middle-aged white man is just surreal. The “Tupac is alive” conspiracy theorists are going to have a field day trying to spin this story into something coherent.
Suge Knight paid $1.4 million to bail Tupac Shakur out of jail in 1995. We have a hunch he’s not going to bother coughing up the $18,000 for Tupac A. Shakir though.
