People claim that Tupac faked his own death to start a new life. There were even accusations from Tupac’s bodyguard, Michael Nice, himself claiming that he smuggled Tupac out of Las Vegas in the wake of the fatal shooting. According to Nice, Tupac was smuggled to Cuba. Nice has reportedly opened up about Tupac still being alive. He said
“Why you think nobody been arrested if they said they the one that killed Tupac? Because Tupac is not dead. If he was dead, they’d be arresting those dudes for murder. You know he’s somewhere smoking a Cuban cigar on an island.”
Other theories include that of Tupac living somewhere in Somalia with Yaki Kadafi, another rapper who was shot dead in an accidental shooting only 2 months after Tupac’s.
