Suge Knight: "Tupac May Not Be Dead"

The rap mogul has speculated that Pac could still be alive...

Former Death Row Records boss Suge Knight has sensationally claimed in a radio interview that late rapper Tupac Shakur may not be dead.

While speaking to LA radio station 93.5 Kday hosted by TMZ, Knight speculated about Shakur's death in 1996, just a week after his image was resurrected at Coachella as part of Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre's set.

The Black Kapital Records mogul also distanced himself from allegations that he was involved in the Changes hitmaker's murder, suggesting that Pac may not have died in the Las Vegas shooting. 

He stated: "Maybe the question is... Pac's not really dead. Pac's somewhere else. Nobody seen Tupac dead.

"The person who supposedly cremated Tupac, his mother wanted it done quickly, he passed."

Knight added: "This guy got about $3 million personally from me, cash, and next thing I know I never heard from the guy or seen him again. He retired and left."
