Embattled Record Mogul Suge Knight Offers Further Insight Into Rapper Tupac Shakur's Death

It’s been over 20 years since Tupac Shakur was gunned down in Las Vegas in 1996. Who pulled the trigger that sent Tupac to the grave has remained a mystery as former Death Row Records CEO Suge Knight, who was with Shakur that night, has always refused to point a finger.Now, however, Knight says that the theories put forward in a recently released documentary called Tupac Assassination: Battle for Compton are true.
 Music-News.com Reports:
He has always refused to identify the shooter or name the person he believed was responsible for his friend and protege’s death, but now he has given the new film’s co-directors Michael Douglas Carlin and Richard Bond a big thumbs up, insisting their documentary offers the truth behind Tupac’s killing.Bond tells WENN he has a signed affidavit from Knight’s criminal attorney Thaddeus Culpepper insisting that the story laid out in Tupac Assassination: Battle for Compton is all true.
                                    
“Culpepper [Knight’s attorney] told Carlin individually that not only did Knight confirm the events as portrayed in Compton, which portray Knight was the intended target and Shakur as collateral damage, as true, but also goes on to allege that these 1996 events may have been the first in a history of attempts on Knight’s life, culminating in the recent attempted killing of Knight at the 1OAK Club in Los Angeles, where Knight was shot six times,” a film spokesperson says.

“When Knight was not being shot at, he has been the target of allegations that he was responsible for the shooting of Shakur rival Christopher ‘Biggie Smalls’ Wallace in 1997. In fact, even now Knight is held pending trial, where he stands accused of running over a man with his truck in what he contends to be yet another attempt on his life.”

“He admitted to Culpepper that the theories in the movie were true,” the source adds. “Bond had met with Knight’s private investigators, who were interested in how this information was collected, and Bond and Carlin stand by their insistence that Knight was a victim in Vegas, at One Oak and in the Compton incident Knight is currently pending trial for.

“The hope is Knight’s confirmation of the story laid out in Compton (the film) may put a final stamp to close this mystery, after 20 years.”
