Suge Knight has sensationally claimed Tupac spoke about faking his death. Former Death Row Records music executive Suge, who is currently serving 28 years in jail, said Tupac, who died on September 16 1996, started to talk about faking own death on a trip to Maui, Hawaii.
The revelations will air on American Dream/American Knightmare, made by filmmaker Antoine Fuqua. He interviewed Marion “Suge” Knight from December 2011 to November 2012.
Suge said he had just posted Tupac’s $1.4 million bail and signed him to Death Row, before whisking him off on a holiday.
He said: “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 Sh!t of him dying all in the white, you know what I’m sayin’, with Redd Foxx and everybody like that.”
Fans will recognise the video as I Ain’t Mad At Cha, recorded just weeks before Tupac’s death where he is MC shot whilst in a white suit, enters Heaven, and then return to Earth as a spirit-guide.
Suge addds: “He was cussin’ everybody out. With this particular video, he was like, ‘man, what’s up’, right? And I felt like, he talkin’ about this s**t, and our dreams and our future is built together because we plannin’ on doing, so if you talkin’ about not bein’ here, losing your life, and doin’ all these muthaf**kin’ videos where you dead and s**t, I’m like, s**t… if somethin’ really happen to you, nigga, I ain’t gonna be that muthaf**ka there with tears in my eyes, I’m gonna be that muthaf**ka like, s**t, still pushin’ for you.”
Suge also revealed Tupac Shakur’s fury with his secret ex-girlfriend Madonna as he languished in jail after sexually assaulting a fan.
Tupac was sentenced to between one and a half and four and a half years for the 1993 attack, and was so skint in the slammer that he couldn’t even afford toiletries.
And in a newly released unauthorised jail interview, Suge tells how the rapper was mad with Madonna for reportedly not giving him any cash.
“Pac was so p**sed because Madonna never came and seen him. She never put not one dollar on his books,” Suge says on tapes published by Vlad TV.
