The Truth About Tupac's Death Has Finally Been Revealed

A new documentary about Tupac Shakur's death has finally "nailed" it, says rap boss Suge Knight.

Knight, the former CEO of Death Row Records, was with Tupac in Las Vegas the night he was shot in a drive-by in 1996, but has never revealed the identity of the person he believed was responsible.

Until now, that is; Knight has claimed that the Richard Bond and Michael Douglas Carlin directed Tupac Assassination: Battle for Compton has finally revealed the truth of that fateful night's events.

According to Bond, Knight signed a statement confirming the story told in the film is all true.

"[Knight's criminal lawyer] told Carlin individually that not only did Knight confirm the events 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," a spokesperson for the film said.

"The hope is Knight's confirmation of the story laid out in Compton may put a final stamp to close this mystery, after 20 years."

Knight is currently in prison on unrelated murder charges.
