For some odd reason, conspiracy theorists have spent years suggesting the man behind Tupac’s murder was none other than Death Row CEO Suge Knight – the same Knight who was driving the infamous BMW that what shot up on the Las Vegas strip over twenty years ago.
Now former 2Pac friend and co-artist in his group “The Outlawz” says the nonsense needs to stop, as there was no way Suge Knight was involved in Tupac’s murder. More than than, Mutah Wassin Shabazz Beale (formerly known as Napoleon) says the main suspect in 2Pac’s killing wasn’t Orlando Anderson, often referred to as Baby Lane as suggested by Las Vegas police and documentaries on the murder’s of both Pac and The Notorious B.I.G.
Beale recounts a conversation with Yaki Kadafi, also a member of The Outlawz who says he saw the man who killed 2Pac.
“He said the guy looked right at him, he pulled the arm out and saw the shooting you know what I mean,” Beale said of Kadafi. “They witnessed it, the Outlawz was there but Kadafi seen the guy. The guy looked at Kadafi and Kadafi looked back at him.”
“And Kadafi didn’t expect, he didn’t know what was about to happen until he seen an arm come out the window,” Beale explained. “I don’t think it was Baby Lane (Orlando Anderson), the one who Kadafi seen.”
“Why Kadafi didn’t tell the police?” Beale was asked and responded, “You gotta understand where we come from in that particular time as Kadafi said to the police, he didn’t want to participate with the police. That’s a code from the streets.”
The logic behind Suge Knight not being involved in the murder makes sense, considering he was driving the car Tupac was riding in and even the best marksman would find it difficult to avoid hitting a passenger. For what it’s worth, Knight was grazed in the head and chest by two separate bullets.
Kadafi did not mention anything about the Notorious B.I.G. murder, which Knight has been rumored to have involvement in as it’s been long suggested Knight’s good friend, “Poochie” Williams was the trigger man behind the shooting at the Peterson Automotive Museum in Los Angeles in 1997, just a year after Tupac’s death.
