I'll save you the suspense: no. No, he was not.
This week, web searches for the bankrupt gangster rapper soared due to a prevalent rumor that a break in the Tupac Shakur shooting case led police to finally make an arrest.
The suspect, these rumors would have us believe, was none other than Suge Knight.
Apparently, a fabricated news clip from 2010 in conjunction with Knight’s recent comments regarding the 2Pac hologram that debuted at this year’s Coachella caused the internet stir. Last month, the former hip-hop mogul told the media that he thinks Shakur is still alive somewhere because “nobody has seen him dead.”
This comment refueled the decades-old conspiracy theory and apparently got a few prominent bloggers pointing the finger at Knight. You can see the suspicious news clip below:
