Is Tupac Still Alive?

Rap legend Tupac has been "spotted" in Somalia - over 20 years after his death.
The murder of Tupac Shakur remains one of the biggest unsolved crimes in the music industry, with multiple conspiracy theories springing up to try and plug the gap in knowledge.
No one has ever been convicted of his drive-by killing - and now a new conspiracy theory posted online claims the rap icon could be hiding in East Africa.
A man claims to have seen Tupac, alongside well-known friend and founder of Outlawz hip-hop group – Yaki Kadafi, in Somalia.
"I’ve seen Tupac and Kadafi way after their said deaths – in Somalia," Suldaan Mahdi says in the post, according to the Daily Star .
"I’ve seen them both alive. I was in a car and they were heading in the other direction.
"Kadafi was doing some kind of hand signals – he looked kind of funky.
"I saw them alive way after their said deaths."
Kadafi was found slumped in the third-floor stairwell of an apartment building in New Jersey just two months after Tupac's death.
Last year it was revealed a new documentary has uncovered a significant find - or rather, loss in the famous murder.
Because the gun used to fatally shoot Tupac in the chest at 11.15pm on the night of September 7 1966 has been missing... for over a decade.
According to TMZ , the producers of Who Killed Tupac? uncovered a police document detailing how the .40 calibre Glock handgun was found in a man's garden in 1998 and handed in to cops at Compton Police Department.
Two years later, the LA County Sheriff's Department took over Compton's law enforcement and thousands of confiscated weapons were entrusted to its care, including the gun in question.
The firearm sat in the archives for a few more years as the furore over Tupac's death eventually quietened down, then in 2006 a deputy discovered that the address where the gun was found was the home of a Crip member's girlfriend.
The gang member is said to have had significant beef with Tupac - and the gun was tested and its ballistics found to match the weapon that ended the rapper's life.
With this huge breakthrough, it was thought the gun would be handed over to cops in Vegas - the city where Tupac died - but instead, prosecutors blocked the move over fears those involved in the murder would be alerted and would go to ground.
TMZ believes there were other concerns that any link between a Crip member and Tupac's death would reignite gang warfare and possibly lead to more violence.
Since then, the whereabouts of the gun is said to be unknown - meaning any progress on the cold case will be that much more difficult.
The producers reportedly contacted Las Vegas Police Department, which was unclear on whether the weapon had ever been handed over.
Among the theories surrounding Tupac's murder was that his one-time friend - then deadly rival - Notorious BIG was somehow involved.
But he was never charged and died in another drive-by shooting by an unknown killer just six months after Tupac.
