  One of music’s biggest debates revolves around the mystery of whether legendary 90’s rapper, Tupac Shakur, is still alive today.
  Tupac was shot in Las Vegas on September 7, 1996 and died in the hospital six days later. There are many that firmly believe Tupac is still alive today and that he faked his death.
  Theories as to why Tupac would fake his death vary from person to person. Some speculate that Tupac wanted to escape the competitiveness that came with the rap game and many say he escaped to Cuba and continues to live out his days there.
  While escaping from a life in a spotlight filled with gang tensions may sound somewhat reasonable,
  Tupac had no reason to fake his death.
  Tupac had a decent life, an impactful career, a net worth of millions, and an army of loyal fans. Despite having dangerous gang ties, he didn’t have to disappear. Even if some conflict were to arise concerning him, he had the money and influence to receive protection.
  But what if he actually did fake his death? Well, if he did, why is he still hiding? His rivalry with the Notorious B.I.G. is over, and it’d be ridiculous if gang members still wanted him dead.
  If he is alive, his return would mark a significant moment in entertainment history; however, not many people interested in rap today would care. Although his current and past fans would feel strongly about his return, his number of fans seem to have decayed with the rise of new, younger rappers like Kanye West and Kendrick Lamar.
  The chance that Tupac is actually still out there is a long-shot, but if he were to return, the world would be plenty surprised.
