Tupac Impersonator Discusses Wyclef Jean Autopsy Picture In Video
Wyclef Jean's "April Showers" music video taken down from YouTube over Tupac Shakur autopsy picture.
The music video for Wyclef Jean’s "April Showers" was reportedly taken down from YouTube due to concern involving a particular scene in the music video.
TMZ reports that the video was taken down from the video-sharing website after "The Killing Of Tupac Shakur" author Cathy Scott voiced concern over the autopsy picture of Tupac Shakur, which appears briefly in the video.
But according to Tupac impersonator Richard Garcia, he was the one in the autopsy picture featured in Wyclef’s video.
Garcia revealed the news to TMZ and added that he spent eight hours with makeup artist Autumn McHugh to recreate the autopsy picture.
TMZ reports that despite Garcia’s reveal, Scott believes the image is too perfect to be a fake.
The music video for “April Showers,” which serves as the title track on Wyclef’s mixtape of the same name, was released in late April and includes a guest appearance from Brooklyn rapper Troy Ave.
The “April Showers” music video is still unavailable on YouTube “due to a copyright claim by Cathy Scott,” but a clip from the video can be found below.
