I’ve always been a fan of conspiracy theories, they make you think. Having said that, I don’t subscribe wholeheartedly to any of them. I tend to court them but never take them to bed. I did a post a few months back on Rihanna’s involvement with Satan and I found it interesting from a psychological point of view more than anything.
Recently I’ve been getting some traffic from people searching for “Tupac Illuminati“, and I realised didn’t know much about Tupac, his death and the conspiracy theories surrounding it; so I watched a YouTube documentary to see what the crack was. I certainly wasn’t sold on the conspiracy theories, but the film and the theories within it were a lot more interesting than I’d imagined.
What I’m going to do here is a kind of critical synopsis of the documentary I guess, except it won’t be as classy as that description makes it sound.
The video I watched starts out by saying that people like Rihanna, Beyonce, Lady Gaga and Jay Z are always throwing up illuminati, triangular finger shapes for a reason: they are controlled by the Illuminati and as such they are representing their master’s wishes by talking in their lyrics about sex and money, in order to keep the country’s youth stupid and fame-obsessed.
The argument goes that as soon as an artist breaks from this pattern and starts talking about what’s really going on in the wider world i.e. corruption, wars, capitalist control – they get snuffed and the media spotlight moves away from them, or worse.
Tupac’s Political Aims
I didn’t know anything about 2Pac before writing this, I mean, I knew he was a rapper that got killed, but that was it really. I never realised that he was an intelligent, well-spoken guy that talked about illegal wars and oppression. He comes across as an erudite young man, and he was young, just 25 when he died.
I also didn’t know that he was planning to move into politics with MC Hammer and Snoop Dog (or Lion Dog as he’s now calling himself). Me in my big white palace could find all of that amusing (I mean, could you imagine that?), but the reality is that their combined fan base of disenfranchised poor people in America could have actually made a fair difference at the polling stations. Who else are the starving, underclass, black majority going to vote for? But that’s all conjecture, and the point the documentary maker is making is that the Illuminati or white elite, were scared of his oratory and sway. That’s probably true.
What Do They Really Mean By Illuminati?
What I did get from this documentary is that Illuminati, as a word, is really interchangeable with the phrase “the man”. The original meaning of Illuminati seems to have been watered down and the term is really taken to mean, the guys at the top with the cash.
Before his death, Tupac promised:
…before the next election…we will have our own political party.
I’m guessing the whiteys at the White House probably did get wind and probably were a little scared. Would they kill to keep control? Damn right they would. Did they kill Tupac? We’ll never know. But it’s not as if the CIA have got any problem with assassinating people.
Anyway, I’m literally jumping the gun, before the US government allegedly assassinated him, they are supposed to have set him up on rape charges (read 2Pac & Ayanna’s account in this thread). Ayanna Jackson claimed to have been sodomized by him and his friends against her will. What took place on that fateful night we will never know. But what is true, is that forensics found no sign of forced entry (anywhere), no traces of semen etc. It may have been a set up, but we don’t know who or why would anyone would have done it. Maybe Tupac’s “mates” could have set him up, maybe she set him up for the money…. or, maybe he actually did it.
Whatever actually happened, Tupac went down. The conspiracy theorists posit that he was sent down on a rape charge so that when he came out no one would respect or listen to him. A lot of conspiracy theorists make arguments where they say that a certain outcome – e.g. someone was discredited, proves that some shady organisation orchestrated it. In reality, the shady organisation may have been pleased that he was discredited and it may have worked in their favour, but it certainly doesn’t act as proof that they organised that discrediting.
The rape charge didn’t keep him down though, on his release he was as vocal as ever. At around 11:00pm on the Las Vegas strip, on the 7th of September, 1996, after a Tyson boxing match, a Cadillac pulled up next to Tupac’s BMW and six rounds were fired at Tupac.
He was hit four times in the chest, pelvis, and his right hand and thigh. One of the rounds went into Shakur’s right lung and left testicle.
He died from his wounds after a week in an induced coma on the 13th September. The first police officer on the scene – Chris Carroll – tried to find out from Tupac who had shot him, Tupac looked into his eyes, and according to the officer, his final words were:
To add fuel to the conspiracy flames, the case of who shot Tupac has never been closed. No witnesses could be summoned and their leads all ran dry. Despite Tupac’s entourage consisting of around 10 vehicles that night, no one came forward to testify. Further fuel was piled on when Yaki Kadafi (Yafu Fula), part of Tupac‘s band Oultawz, was shot a couple of months later.
If big government did snuff out the rising star, this is exactly what you would have expected to happen: no one would have talked. What if it was a gang based murder? It would have been the same outcome. An unsolved murder is no case for conspiracy.
