A convicted felon is claiming he shot and robbed rapper Tupac Shakur, reports CTV.
New York City police have begun investigating the online posting, which was posted on the website AllHipHop.com.
The posted claims he was paid $2,500 by another hip hop mogul to rob Shakur outside a studio in Manhattan in 1994, where Tupac suffered gunshot wounds but eventually recovered. He was later killed in 1996 by an unknown killer.
Police are trying to determine if the post is truthful and plan on interviewing the prisoner.
“Now I would like to clear up a few things, because the statute of limitations is over, and no one can be charged, and I’m just plain tired of listening to your lies,” the man says in the posting. “I still have as proof the chain we took in the robbery.”
This may be a publicity stunt, or simply a confession that’s been eating him up on the inside. Either way, we won’t know if it’s true or not until the police investigate. Just a couple of weeks ago, a fake story was posted claiming Tupac is still alive, so you never know with these stories.
