Man Confesses To Shooting Tupac Shakur In 1994
Dexter Issac has issued an apology to the late rappers family...
A man has admitted to shooting hip-hop legend Tupac Shakur, two years before the star was murdered.
Dexter Issac, who is currently serving a life sentence for unrelated offences, confessed that notorious gangster, James 'Jimmy Henchman' Rosemond, paid him $2,500 to rob the Changes rapper at Quad Studios, New York during November 1994.
Isaac has now issued an apology to Tupac's family via AllHipHop.com last night, before what would have been the rapper's 40th birthday.
He stated: "I want to apologise to [Shakur's] family and for the mistake I did for that sucker [Rosemond]. I am trying to clean it up to give [Shakur and Notorious B.I.G's] mothers some closure."
"In 1994, James Rosemond hired me to rob Tupac Shakur at the Quad Studio. He gave me $2,500, plus all the jewellery I took, except for one ring which he wanted for himself. It was the biggest of the two diamond rings that we took."
Issac's added: "He said that he wanted to put the stone in a new setting for his girlfriend at the time, Cynthia Ried. I still have as proof that chain we took that night in the robbery."
Despite admitting the offence, Isaac will NOT be prosecuted for the crime, due to the statue of limitations.
Tupac made a full recovery after being attacked by Isaac, but was later shot and killed in September 1996.
The California Love star's murder has never been solved, with the FBI releasing an extensive report into his death back in April this year.
