The 1996 murder of iconic rap artist Tupac Shakur has never been officially solved. It’s probably going to be a lot harder to now that the murder weapon is missing, according to TMZ. You can barely get away with committing a crime in our surveillance and scary science culture, so that gun is probably key. For the DNA! Hell, the one time I forgot to bring doggie bags out with me and had to leave his results out there, an angry neighbor woman tracked us down by our DNA! Continue reading
Christie’s has hawked some of the most expensive art in history: a Van Gogh went for $450 million in November, and a Picasso netted $179 million in 2015. But those should take a seat because that record is about to get smashed for some real fine art: Tupac Shakur’s ding-a-ling! Continue reading
Two years after Madonna dropped her cooze on legendary rapper Vanilla Ice, she dropped her cooze on another legendary rapper, Tupac. (May the ghost of Tupac slap me in the mouth with all of his rings on for comparing him to Vanilla Ice.) The year was 1994, so this was before blogs existed and so they never got an annoying couple name like TuMad or Tunna. Tupac and Madge didn’t last that long. She moved on to her daughter’s dad, Carlos Leon, and he was murdered in 1996.
TMZ got a hold of a letter that Tupac wrote to Madge from prison on January 15, 1995 at 4:30am. Yes, Tupac was one of those types who gets all sensitive in the morning. The letter is going up for auction later this month and the starting bid is $100,000. TMZ posted a copy of the censored letter, and in it, he wrote about how she hurt him with her words and how he once felt that he’d let down the people who made “Tupac” if he continued to date a white woman like her.
All Eyez on Me, the biopic about Tupac Shakur, opens tonight and it’s gotten some not-great reviews so far. One review has been an unsolicited one courtesy of Jada Pinkett Smith. Jada, who was a friend of Tupac’s from way back, has denounced the makers of All Eyez on Me for taking creative liberties of her relationship with Tupac.
Last year, Suge Knight sued Dr. Dre for allegedly trying to have him killed to prevent him from getting his hands on $300 million of Dre’s dollars. People have tried to shoot Suge many times before that, but he might be more common of a target than we realize. According to the filmmakers of a new documentary called Tupac Assassination: Battle for Compton, Suge claims that the gunfire that killed Tupac Shakur in Las Vegas back in 1996 was meant for him.
