In our opinion, we thought of a couple of ways that murdered rapper and actor, Tupac Amaru Shakur, found shot in his 1996 BMW might have been set up.

The first idea we got was that the Crips and Bloods (two infamous LA Street gangs) might have set it up because Tupac was in a gang named the Outlaws. The Outlaws didn't get along with the Crips and Bloods and had probably warned Tupac before the day he got shot.

The second idea was that Marion "Suge" Knight, the driver of the BMW, might have set up the murder. The shots fired by the people in a white Cadillac at Tupac didn't hit Knight, even though Knight was sitting close to Tupac. Every shot that was fired was on the passenger side of the car.

When Tupac was trying to get in the back seat of the BMW, they were still shooting at him. Why wouldn't they just keep on shooting straight at Knight to get rid of a witness? Since Tupac had already been shot, Knight didn't try to drive off-- he just sat there in the car. Another idea we got was that the man who had taken a picture of Tupac and Knight might have set up the murder because it was only a couple of minutes before the drive-by shooting that the man had taken a picture of them, so why wouldn't he take at least one picture of the white Cadillac that was driving by?

Another idea we got was that the guy that Tupac had fought at the Mike Tyson fight a couple minutes before might have come back with his friends to do a drive-by shooting. Our last idea is that Biggie Smalls, known as The Notorious B.I.G., might have killed him because of Tupac's heated argument with him.

The Notorious B.I.G. might have wanted to get back at him by killing him. A couple of days later Knight accused some guy of killing Tupac, so the man shot Knight, but we think the guy didn't want to take the rap so he shot him.

All we would like to say now is peace, Tupac, now you're one of THE LORDS OF THE UNDERGROUNDS.
