Iconic rapper Tupac Shakur was gunned down almost 20 years ago, but fans believe a new photograph proves he is actually alive and well.
Conspiracy theorists have long believed that life goes on for the rapper who was shot at the age of 25 on September 7, 1996, in Las Vegas.
The latest ‘proof’ that the rapper is not dead is a selfie included in a YouTube video allegedly showing Tupac – or a man who looks similar to him.
‘Did you saw (sic) this – it is Tupac guys 100 per cent same eyebrows and lips,’ the video showing the ‘new’ picture claims.
In the picture, a man is wearing a red bandana and a blue zip-up jacket. He also has a goatee and looks like Tupac.
Subtitles in the video allege the picture was taken in in 2015 on a phone ‘made in 2011’.
The clip has been watched more than 1.4 million times and viewers were quick to share their opinions.
‘I know everyone wants him to come back but he is dead,’ one person wrote.
‘Anybody who claims this guy is still alive is a… idiot. You can’t hide in todays (sic) electronic day and age… stop drinking the conspiracy kool-aid you half-wits,’ another said.
‘He alive,’ another fan said simply.
One of the most popular conspiracy theories is that the rapper was sick of having all eyes on him, and faked his death before moving to Cuba.
In 2012, former Death Row Records CEO Suge Knight added to the conspiracy by suggesting Tupac is still alive.
Knight said he never saw the artist’s body following his death, despite being there on the night of the deadly shooting.
‘Maybe the question is, Pac’s not really dead. Pac’s somewhere else,’ he said during a radio interview.
Other ‘new’ pictures of the rapper have emerged in the past, however they have been proven to be of other people or edited.
However, with his army of fans unlikely to ever agree, debate on whether Tupac is alive will likely rage until the end of time.
