NME Festival blog: Suge Knight’s son claims Tupac is alive and recording new music

“This ain’t a joke.”

The son of notorious music mogul Suge Knight has sensationally claimed that Tupac Shakur is alive and currently working on new music.

Suge J Knight, who previously claimed that Tupac is alive and living in Malaysia, has seemingly announced that he’s currently in the studio with the legendary rapper.

Despite Tupac being killed in a Las Vegas drive-by shooting in 1996, the questionable claims were made on Instagram by the son of the Death Row records founder.

“I got Pac back in the studio. New music coming,” he wrote. He added in the caption: “This ain’t a joke”.

The latest post followed a cryptic Instagram image that saw him sharing images of the “New Death Row.”

After receiving backlash for the outlandish claims, Knight then doubled down in a fan Q&A on Instagram stories.

“First they call you crazy. Then they doubt you,” he said.

“And then they forget how they was treating you at first.”

When one fan asked about new music, he also teased a continuation of his father’s New Death Row records – which launched the careers of Dr Dre and Snoop Dogg.

The latest post comes after Suge first suggested that Tupac was alive in October last year.

“I’m a Knight. And they think Knights are a threat. I will continue to move smart. I’m not snitching on PAC, never the case,” he said.

“He would want me to protect my family. Im doing that. We are. Free Big Suge TIL then.”

Last year, his father was sentenced to 28 years in prison over a hit-and-run incident following a confrontation on the set of NWA biopic Straight Outta Compton.

Meanwhile, the murder of Tupac was reportedly ‘solved’ last year year, when rapper Keefe D confessed to playing a part in the shooting. A Netflix documentary titled Unsolved: The Murders Of Tupac and the Notorious B.I.G. was made based on the rapper’s claims.
