COPS in Las Vegas claim they are still actively investigating the murderous hit on Tupac Shakur - after it was claimed the case was effectively "closed". The outspoken gangsta rapper died days after he was gunned down in a high-profile drive-by shooting 22 years ago. News that the case is still part of an ongoing investigation emerged after US journalists launched a legal bid for the Las Vegas Police Department to release documents related to the assassination. The non-profit Center for Investigative Reporting believes the records are of great "historical importance" and should be made public. However the LVPD is refusing to release the paperwork as it claims the murder IS still the subject of an ongoing investigation. Tupac was infamously gunned down on September 7, 1996, while driving through Las Vegas with Death Row Records boss Suge Knight. A shooter in a white Cadillac, which pulled up on the right-hand passenger side of Tupac's BMW at traffic lights, opened fire at … [Read more...] about Tupac murder cops insist the rapper’s case IS still open – 22 years after the infamous drive-by shooting

Some natural raconteurs are happy to play that game — 50 Cent can now tell the story of the day he was shot nine times with the fluency of Peter Ustinov on Parkinson — but many rappers are understandably coy, at least outside the recording studio, about sharing the gory details of their previous lives. In that respect, this memoir by one of the nine original members of the Wu-Tang Clan lives up to its title, being so brutally frank that it is hard to believe a single story remains untold. Masterminded by Robert ‘RZA’ Diggs, the Wu-Tang Clan … [Read more...] about The futile gang wars of New York
PRESIDENT Donald Trump and Mike Tyson had a bizarre "father-son" relationship which was so intense the boxer almost killed himself over surfacing rumours. Although there is a 20-year age gap between the pair, Trump found so much solace in "Iron Mike's" fearlessness to such an extent, he took on the boxer's bravado to win his shock election victory in 2016. The pair met in Atlantic City, New Jersey as Tyson was set to fight Olympic boxing gold medallist Michael "Jinx" Spinks - a battle Trump organised in 1988. Held at the Trump Plaza Hotel, Tyson won the fight within a striking 91 seconds, and he became so confident, he ditched his coach Clayton to hire Trump as his "chief strategist". Trump publicly gushed about his son-like friend, telling reporters, Mike said ridiculous things but he knew how to use "fear and outrage as a psychological weapon", according to a report by Chris Ayres in the April issue of British GQ. These weapons Trump so famously used during his US election … [Read more...] about Inside the bizarre ‘father-son’ relationship between Trump and Mike Tyson… and how ‘Iron Mike’ ‘tried to kill himself over’ rumours The Donald was sleeping with his wife
There are a lot of conspiracy theories claiming that rapper Tupac Shakur is still alive. The latest to join the bandwagon is Vanderpump Rules star, who has a totally crazy, out-of-this-world theory about the rapper's death. Tupac Shakur was fatally gunned down in 1996 and details leading up to it are still clouded in mystery. Lala Kent believes that the deceased rapper is living inside her. The 27-year-old reality star shared her theory about Tupac in an interview on SiriusXM's The Jenny McCarthy Show on Wednesday (21 February). It all started with host McCarthy asking Lala, "How did this like sweet, beautiful Utah girl turn into like this cool, hood chick? Like on Instagram and stuff your Snapchats are so sexy, funny, but they're hood." The Vanderpump star reacted by saying, "I don't know where that comes from, I mean I am a firm believer that when Tupac died he took over my body. I know you're laughing but I'm being for real." She continued, "I recently just got 'thug life' tattooed … [Read more...] about This Vanderpump Rules star believes Tupac ‘took over her body after his death’
