Maz’S Weekend Word: Suge Knight: “Nobody’S Seen Tupac Dead”, Tulisa And Dappy Make Peace, Tinie Tempah Collaborates With Dizzee!
The world was stunned when Tupac was recently resurrected in the form of a hologram at Coachella. The rapper's previous manager, Death Row's Suge Knight, has spoken out about the hologram, saying that it was probably unnecessary – as he believes his friend is still alive. Speaking to 93.5 KDay, he opened up about the suspicion behind his label mate’s death...
Suge said: “Maybe the question is that ’Pac really not dead and ’Pac’s somewhere else. I mean it’s the truth if you really look at it. Nobody seen Tupac dead."
As well as saying that nobody saw Tupac’s body after he was pronounced dead, Suge also said he paid a man to deal with Tupac’s cremation, however he mysteriously disappeared: “This guy got about $3 million personally from me—cash. Next thing I know, I never heard from the guy or seen him, he retired and left.”
Tupac passed away in 1996, 16 years ago, and he was shot in the car that Suge Knight was driving. Do you believe the age-old myth that the rapper is still alive, relaxing on an island somewhere?
Tulisa has spoken about her controversial cousin Dappy after their Twitter row last month, which saw Dappy complain that Tulisa has stopped speaking to him. The X Factor judge immediately fired back, saying it was Dappy who changed his number and stopped speaking to her!
Speaking to Top Of The Tops Magazine, Tulisa said: "Dappy just goes out looking for a bit of attention sometimes. He went on Twitter ranting that I don't call him, trying to cause a stir, when actually it was the other way round. I put him in his place and he phoned me the next day!"
Despite the public bickering, T went on to say that the pair are still tight and they always will be: "The thing with us is that we don't speak for six months and then we'll see each other and nothing's changed. It doesn't make a difference.”
Tinie Tempah is back from America for the meanwhile, and of all of the things there are to see in the States, he bizarrely decided to complain about their strip clubs! He told The Sun: "I went to a strip club in America. When you see a naked stripper for the first time, she gives you a lap dance and tells you she is in college and she is stripping for her tuition fees.
"The minute she goes to somebody else and you see her laughing, it feels like she is cheating on you. I’m like, 'What are you doing? Come back here, I thought we had something!' So that’s going to take a little while to get used to."
Although Tinie will be busy at the strip clubs when in America, it was revealed that while he is in the UK, he will be collaborating with one of his music heroes, Dizzee Rascal.
The 'Written In The Stars' rapper said: "I've always listened to him [Dizzee] so it means a lot. The music is very hard, the opposite of what people would expect from us.
"When I played it to Dizzee, he was like, 'Thank God that you didn't try and get me on something that you thought would be a big hit.' It's very indie and underground and raw. Back to basics."
