Tupac Amaru Shakur known as “Tupac” died on September 13th of 1996. He was born on June 16th, 1971. He was married to a beautiful woman named Kiesha Morris. Shakur was shot four times in a drive-by shooting at the intersection of Flamingo Road and Koval Lane in Las Vegas, Nevada. He actually died at the University Medical Center of Southern Nevada.

He died six days later from his injuries. He was only 25 years of age when he died. Before he was shot he was seen leaving a boxing event in Las Vegas. Tupac had a total of 22 tattoos. Shakur was born in New York City and grew up primarily in Harlem. In 1984 he and his family moved to Baltimore Maryland, then moved again in 1984 to Oakland, California.

Kiesha and Tupac were married for over a year. They got married on April 29th, 1995-1996. Tupac was convicted of first degree sexual assault, he was sentenced to one and a half to four and a half years in prison. He claimed he was innocent all along. He began his sentence on Valentines day, Febuary 14th 1995. Before his sentence he asked Kiesha to be his wife.

“I don’t want you saying you’re my girlfriend. I want people to take you seriously and let them know that you’re my wife,” he said before his sentence. They tied the knot on April 29th 1995 while Tupac was incarcerated in the Clinton Correctional Facility in upstate New York.

“I don’t know what happened, I wasn’t in the room,” Kiesha said, “ I was nowhere around. I know he stated that he didn’t have anything to do with it. I didn’t want to see him go to prison for something he said he didn’t do.” She also said Tupac was only serving ten months and released  on October 12th 1995.

He would always say “ You don’t understand now, but you will later”. Tupac attended the Bruce Seldons vs. Mike Tyson fight with Suge Knight at the M.G.M Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. After the fight there was a brawl between Tupac’s group and the alleged  Crip gang members that night around 11:00 p.m. Tupac and Knight were stopped at a red light when a car pulled up and shot the rapper four times. Tupac had four sisters and five brothers (not including him).

People have so many conspiracy theories about him. People say he’s still alive and he faked his death. Some people say he’s hiding in Cuba with his aunt, Assata Shakur. There are so many conspiracy theories about him that are true and not true. People will never really know. Another conspiracy is Biggie Smalls was the mastermind behind the shooting.  Times reporter Chuck Philips wrote that the Nortorious B.I.G offered the crips $1 million to kill Tupac. No one knows the truth and it will be hidden until someone finds out the real truth.

    There was never really any reports of the police showing up to a fight, or the “shooting” that killed Tupac .Myself personally believe he did go hiding into Cuba. Sure. it could be true that he did get shot, and lots of people believe that when Tupac was getting shot, his friend, Knight, hopped out the car and returned fire at the crips, while Tupac drove away in pain. After that he got to the nearest airport, pleaded to get a flight to Cuba, and faked his name as Tupaco, for those who didn’t know him.That’s the theory I believe.

    I think Tupac Amaru shakur is still alive because now days we have legal ways to change your name, and plastic surgeons he could have done all three. this is an interesting story honestly. The way you typed this looks very believable good job.

    He’s dead. If someone were to fake their death, they wouldn’t go to the hospital first for 5 days and then die.
