Despite multiple confirmations that Tupac Shakur AKA 2Pac was killed after a drive-by shooting 22 years ago, scores of people have refused to believe he is dead.
While there are have been many theories surrounding his death or rumoured survival in decades – with a popular one being his alleged escape to the Caribbean – this particular take is being revived by a British man who claims to have been part of the rapper’s exit strategy.
HotNewHipHop is reporting that, Michael Nice, has said he was a member of a security working for The Black Panthers Party during the 90s. that helped smuggle the rapper out of Las Vegas and safely to Barbados and he even has a video that apparently proves it.
The Sun UK also quoted him as saying that when the group caught wind of a hit being placed on Tupac, they decided to shield the entertainer from danger by getting him out of the country, affirming further that the rapper was injured during the Las Vegas shooting on September 7, 1996. Still, they managed to flee successfully.
His words: “It was me, my brother, the pilot, Tupac as the co-pilot and two Panther guys on the jet.”
“We took off and immediately knew we were safe, we felt good and it was like escaping from prison.”
“There were hugs and handshakes when we finally managed to get him to Barbados.”
In a video, Michael Nice describes part of his experience and reveals his plans to recount the tales in a book.
“I just cannot wait to answer you haters and just tell the truth, come up with the good. You won’t be able to doubt me.”
Nice says the reason he was selected for the risky operation was due to his quasi-irrelevance.
“No one could be trusted and I was unknown.”
He told TMZ:
“Why you think nobody been arrested if they said they the one that killed Tupac?
“Because Tupac is not dead. If he was dead, they’d be arresting those dudes for murder.”
“You know he’s somewhere smoking a Cuban cigar on an island.”
