Rap impresario and former CEO of Death Row Records Suge Knight is reportedly ready to reveal the identity of the individual who murdered Tupac Shakur.
Knight was with Tupac on the night he was gunned down in a 1996 drive-by shooting in Las Vegas. Despite the killing occurring over two decades ago, the mystery that surrounds his death, as well as many bizarre conspiracy theories, has kept people engaged in the case.
However, Knight – who is facing trial for an unrelated murder – has begun talking about what he witnessed that fateful evening.
The rap mogul maintains it was him who was the intended target and that his ex-wife Sharitha and the former security chief for Death Row Records are behind the ordering of the shooting.
Thaddeus Culpepper, Knight’s lawyer, indicated in an affidavit that his client knew for “many years that Reggie Wright Jr. and his ex-wife were behind the murder of Tupac and attempted murder of Knight.”
He also indicated that Knight also has information of Wright’s alleged implication in the killing of Biggie Smalls, the Daily Mail reported.
Knight is speaking out ahead of a documentary surrounding Tupac’s death: Tupac Assassination: Battle for Compton.
The documentary’s co-director stated: “When our book came out, and we were working on the movie, we gave the points of the book to Thaddeus Culpepper, who read them to Suge Knight. Suge’s response was, ‘Who the hell are these guys?'”
A source noted that SugeKnight then confessed to Culpepper that the theories in the movie were valid, and was so intrigued by the filmmakers’ investigative skills that he sent private detectives to uncover out how the writers had found out the truth.
