Tupac’s death was a tragedy, many wish to forget. Just when you think you’ve heard the last of this tragic event, a new twist comes into the mix. About 22 years ago one of the music industry’s most prominent icons was gunned down in cold blood on the streets of Vegas. Today, it has become one of the most notorious murder cases of all time.
TupacShakur 's right hand men has come forward to make an explosive revelation about what really happened when the rapper was shot to death on that fateful night.
As the initial story went, before the new evidence changed it, Tupac wasmurdered by a mystery shooter in Las Vegas on September 7, 1996.
But now Napoleon, a former member of rap group the Outlawz, has claimed that one of his band mates was a key witness to the shooting.
A first hand witness account he claims. Napoleon, whose real name is Mutah Wassin Shabazz Beale, says that Outlawz member Yaki Kadafi – who was also a member of Tupac's entourage - looked directly at the shooter in the moments before he opened fire.
Publicity stunt or the real deal? He took to YouTube in a bid to clear up what really happened on that tragic night.
According to Napoleon: “Kadafi actually seen the person who killed Pac.
“He said the guy looked right at him, he pulled the arm out and saw the shooting you know what I mean.
“They witnessed it, the Outlawz was there but Kadafi seen the guy.
“The guy looked at Kadafi and Kadafi looked back at him.
“And Kadafi didn’t expect, he didn’t know what was about to happen until he seen an arm come out the window.
“I don’t think it was Baby Lane [Orlando Anderson], the one who Kadafi seen.”
But a further twist in the tale, puts this eyewitness’ testimony in doubt. Tragically, less than two months after Tupac's death, then-19-year-old Kadafi was also shot to death, in a reported 'accidental shooting' in New Jersey – and crucially, he never got the opportunity, to recount what he saw to the LAPD.
Napoleon explained why the teenager never went to the cops: "Why Kadafi didn’t tell the police?”
“You gotta understand where we come from in that particular time as Kadafi said to the police, he didn’t want to participate with the police.”
The story keeps getting more and more complicated. Bottom line? Tupac is dead. And the truth is still out there.
