Tupac Shakur is alive and a series of clips of the rapper taken after his death that have emerged this year prove it, conspiracy theorists have claimed.
The iconic Hit Em Up rapper was fatally shot in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas on September 7, 1996.
Six days later – 23 years to the day today – he died from his injuries.
But so-called truth-seekers have long-since refuted the official line of reports, particularly given no one has ever been charged with his death.
Ever since that night, images and videos have appeared on social media claiming to show the rapper alive and well.
Just this year, numerous sightings have emerged thanks to YouTube channel Wired Up TV and here, Daily Star Online outlines some of the most bizarre.
1) ‘Tupac seen with original tattoos’
The “Tupac alive” conspiracy exploded in April when Wired Up TV uploaded a video of a man bearing a startling similarity to the rapper perching at the side of the road.
In the clip, the man was seen wearing a straw hat but it was what was on his arms that sparked the conspiracy frenzy.
According to Danny from the YouTube channel, the person had the same tattoos as Tupac on his forearm.
2) ‘Tupac captured in 2006 music video’
The YouTube channel also claimed the rapper was seen in a music video 10 years after death.
In a clip posted to their channel in May, a darkened figure was seen sitting beside Dutch artist Chilo in a car for his track Amsterdam to LA.
While the image was slightly fuzzy, the man appeared yet again to have a beard like Tupac.
Danny claimed he “got confirmation” from a source close to the Tupac
3) ‘Tupac spotted in Africa’
Back in June, Wired Up TV posted an image apparently showing “Tupac” wearing a hoodie in Africa.
The channel claimed it was taken just one day after his death and, to be fair, the man pictured does look similar to the rapper.
Wired Up said the blurry image was “the first ever sighting and the first time people even uttered Tupac being alive”.
Many viewers believed the claims and said the picture was convincing.
But others were more sceptical, suggesting the image was photoshopped.
4) ‘Tupac pictured in 2019’
Danny set conspiracists’ tongues wagging once again in July with a clip of a Tupac lookalike surrounded by three young boys.
Like his previous images, the man had the same facial beard and features as Tupac.
He claimed “a lot of people think that is Tupac” and the kids surrounding him are “his kin”.
Viewers claimed it was the “best proof” they’d seen, with some saying it was true because of the jacket he was wearing.
Of course, there is no actual proof the iconic Hip Hop star is alive today and the photos could easily be photoshopped.
So, while conspiracy theorists eagerly wait for official evidence from authorities, just sit back and enjoy Tupac’s epic albums that made him one of the most important figures in the music industry.
