Tupac Shakur, 25, sold more than 75 million records worldwide, making him one of the best-selling music artists of all time.
And the rapper’s murder 22 years ago remains one of the most iconic moments in music history.
And now his buddy Suge Knight has claimed the icon often spoke about faking his own death.
The founder and ex-CEO of Death Row Records made the comments in December 2011 and they will be aired in a new documentary tonight.
Suge – who is currently serving a 28-year prison sentence – said shortly after he posted Tupac’s $1.4million bail and signed him to Death Row, the pair took a trip to Maui, Hawaii.
And Tupac couldn’t have been happier, according to Suge.
“We was in Maui, you know what I mean, and Pac had, like, never been to Maui.
“And he get to talking about faking his own death.
“And Pac was more down for doing, like, the… the… the last little videos and s*** of him dying all in the white, you know what I’m sayin’, with Redd Foxx and everybody like that.”
Pac died from gunshot wounds after a gang revenge attack.
But more than 20 years after his death, the possibility the whole thing was a conspiracy still fascinates people.
Official records state the iconic artist was shot four times in a drive-by shooting.
He was rushed to hospital where he died from his injuries six days later.
The shooter has never been caught by the cops.
Since the attack, the musician has been spotted everywhere from Somalia to Sweden.
Some fans believe he faked his own death and is living a life of luxury.
“We often spoke about it”
Much of the speculation has been fuelled by Suge who, when asked if Tupac is still alive in an interview last year, replied, “With Pac you never know.”
And Suge’s son recently poured fuel on the fire, posting several Instagrams in October alleging that Tupac is still alive and kicking.
Last month, Tupac’s pal Mike Tyson broke down in an interview when speaking about the pair’s relationship.
He later shared an emotional throwback picture.
