Tupac Had Elaborate Plan To Fake His Death, Is Alive According To New Documentary 

Posted by Ashley Wiltshire Friday, February 14, 2020 11:28:00 AM

It’s more than two decades since Tupac Shakur passed away, but the hip hop icon still captivates the minds of millions.

The “California Love” rapper died in a rain of bullets in Las Vegas on September 13th, 1996. The rapper had been in Sin City to celebrate his business partner’s birthday and attended the Bruce Seldon vs. Mike Tyson, before occupants of a Cadillac, opened fire on Tupac’s vehicle while at a red light. He and Suge Knight, who was in the car with him at the time, were transported to the hospital where medical personnel placed Tupac on life support due to one of the four bullets piercing his lung. The 25-year-old ultimately died from internal bleeding, with his killer never being brought to justice.

Despite the late rapper’s body being cremated and members of his crew allegedly smoking his ashes mixed with weed, rumors have always been around that Tupac is actually alive and living on an island somewhere. Now, claims being made in a new documentary make even those allegations seem tame.

According to filmmaker, Rick Boss, Tupac never passed away at University Medical Center in Las Vegas. Instead, he managed to sneak out (with or without bullets still lodged in his body, it has not been confirmed), and fled to New Mexico where he remains to this day under the protection of the Native American Navajo tribe, ABC affiliate KTNV reported.

THE OSCAR GOES TO TARIQ AND TASHA ST. PATRICK; ‘POWER’ FINALE HAD SEVERAL LEADS LYING SO GOOD TO SET UP GHOST THAT THEY SHOULD RECEIVE ACADEMY AWARDS 

Posted by Ashley Wiltshire Monday, February 10, 2020 8:27:00 AM

If you did not see the final episode of Power, the ending of the epic “Who Shot Ghost?” Season, then you did not see Jaime St. Patrick aka Ghost’s wife and son give award-winning acting performances when trying to set up others for the ultimate demise of the family’s patriarch.

Tariq, masterfully played by Michael Rainey, Jr., was sinister in his approach— crouching between overprotective teen son and criminal strategist— he continued to make the viewers hate this kid while at the same time being empathetic for his loss of his father to Angela Valdez and the tragic death of his sister, Reina. Oh, the tangled web we weave…

Nicki Minaj Lists The Songs She Regrets Recording 

Posted by Azania Friday, February 7, 2020 1:13:00 PM
In 2014, Nicki Minaj debuted her third studio album The Pinkprint, which boasted melodies like "Feeling Myself" alongside Beyonce, "Only" with Lil Wayne and Chris Brown, "Get On Your Knees" featuring Ariana Grande, and more. While the 16-track project landed at the No. 2 spot on the Billboard 200 chart, there's one solo song that she wishes she would've left in the vault.
 
During a Pollstar interview (Feb. 5), Minaj said "Anaconda" was a song she was on the fence about. "I like the video but...," she said. "My first ever solo song on Billboard was 'Your Love.' To this day I like the video but I hate the song. I could go on and on. I hate 'Starships.' I was like, 'Why did I do that?' I really think that every time I hear it."
