Iconic rapper Tupac Shakur was killed in a drive-by shooting in 1996. However, in the two decades since the artist died, a number of bizarre rumors have circulated regarding his death and potential whereabouts. And in November 2019 a video emerged which would further fuel the conspiracy theories.

Shakur came into the world as Lesane Parish Crooks in June 1971, in New York City’s East Harlem neighborhood. His mother, Afeni Shakur (née Alice Williams), was actively involved with the Black Panther Party. She would later rename her son Tupac Amaru Shakur, after Túpac Amaru II, a Peruvian revolutionary.
