"Tupac is in Malaysia."
In the latest addition to rumours and conspiracy theories surrounding the death of American rapper Tupac Shakur, someone claimed that he is alive and well right here in Malaysia.
Tupac was shot in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas on 7 September, 1996 while he was on his way back from the Mike Tyson vs. Bruce Seldon boxing match. He lost his life to multiple shot wounds and respiratory failure a week later.
The newest claim about Tupac's whereabouts was made yesterday, 3 October, by the son of Death Row Records co-founder Marion "Suge" Knight, the man who was with Tupac right before he was shot.

The messages were implied to be a 'warning' against Suge for claiming that Tupac was alive.
2. A photoshopped picture of Tupac with Beyoncé
Netizens were quick to call out Suge for ripping off a photo of Beyoncé and Jay-Z.
3. A video of Tupac from Suge's "Malaysian source"
However, Suge's "Malaysian source" was proven wrong by netizens who found the full version of the video, which was actually taken in 2013.
Malaysians have since reacted to the conspiracy theory in the best way they know how
While we're pretty confident that the rapper is not in Malaysia, you can still reminisce about his music here:
