The Killuminati Conspiracy Theory Continues (part 2) – Suge J Knight • Word Is Bond

A little over eight years ago, one of our older writers wrote this compelling piece that got folks talking about Tupac Shakur speaking about the Illuminati. The difference was that the opinion piece took the opposite position that most people was taking. The end result was it became one of our most read (and retweeted) articles that year.

So in between then and today, two years later Afeni Shakur goes after Death Row Records for the second time (which ends up getting bought by eOne) because they breached the contract about getting paid in royalties and getting unreleased music. According to her, she was owed about seven figures. In 2016, Shakur died from a heart attack, and her legal representatives took over the suit. Five years later – and a few days ago – the estate won their case with getting the unreleased music, but not as much money Shakur sought to get.

Suge Knight was once considered as one of the most dangerous men in the industry running Death Row. From all the stories that guests have spoke about on VLAD TV, you can see understand how he has a stronghold on a number of those who worked at the label. Knight got into some serious trouble with killing Terry Carter at a music video shoot, and a few days ago he gets sentenced for 28 years behind bars.

Knight’s son (who also carries his name) decides to drop a loaded bomb that reignites the rumors that Pac is alive and well. There have been theories in the past that he’s living in Cuba, but according to Knight,s son, Suge – he’s alive and breathing in Malaysia, and he’s been kicking it with a few heads of today’s music industry.

According to Suge’s instagram posts, it seems like now he’s being targeted.

Considering all that has happened, why did he decide to bring this questionable theory back into the public conversation – after it has been dead for so many years? Whether or not this ‘idea’ of him being alive and older (as seen in these pictures) has yet to be seen as accurate, the fact that there’s an actual corpse that was seen by many should be enough to put this whole idea to rest.

What about the authenticity of these pictures? Who has taken them? Why are they now being in the public eye, and no one else has seen them? In the comments from the pages, fans are even questioning if they’re even photoshopped – and why the hell are they blurry?

And what about these … ‘sightings‘? And also, didn’t Pac die in the arms of a cop trying to save him?

This whole ordeal shouldn’t have been brought up without any credible sources. Unless one or a couple of people are willing to come to the plate and say that this is actually real, and have more recent pictures that doesn’t look like they’ve been washed up with waterpaint, then the conversation should be laid dead to rest – just like Pac.

Tupac Shakur's Estate Awarded Unreleased Music & Royalties • Word Is Bond

The estate of the late Tupac Shakur has recently settled a five-year-lawsuit with Entertainment One (eOne) – who purchased Death Row Records a few years back.

According to TMZ, the estate has filed documents earlier this week stating that the two sides came to agreement to settle. Sources that knew about the deal made known that there was a six-figure payout made that will go to the estate, and that there’s a bunch of unreleased music from Pac that will be given to them.

The music that will be given to the estate will include more than enough master recordings for at least two albums, and probably enough music for at least three albums.

‘Pac’s mother, Afeni Shakur sued Death Row back in 2013 over royalties owed to the late rapper. At the time, according to her, she was owed seven figures. When she passed away in 2016, her lawyers took over the lawsuit.

As of yet it is unknown when all of this is supposed to take place.
