Tupac Shakur's Murder Explored In National Geographic Channel's

The murder of Tupac will be discussed as part of a three-night, six-hour documentary.

The still-unsolved 1996 murder of rapper Tupac will be the focus of a segment of National Geographic Channel's forthcoming The '90s: The Last Great Decade? documentary, according to Rolling Stone

The three-night, six-hour documentary is slated to air in two-hour blocks July 6-8 starting at 9 pm EST each night.

The Tupac portion of the program features commentary from "2 Of Amerikaz Most Wanted” video director Gobi Rahimi, who was with Tupac the night he died in a Las Vegas hospital.

After Tupac was shot, Rahimi says that he and the Outlawz took turns watching over the wounded rapper. "I think they had weapons in their car,” Rahimi says, "because the whole time we were there, we were fearful [whoever shot Tupac] was gonna come finish him off."

Outlawz member E.D.I Mean says there’s a reason why Tupac’s murder remains unsolved. 

"Law enforcement around the country weren't big Tupac fans," he said. "I'm absolutely positive they know what happened. This is America. We found Bin Laden."

    If you think the 90s were better than now you are either focusing only on positives or you're romanticizing the past. We currently have in our pockets SMART PHONES. A smart phone is a key to the entire collective knowledge of the human race, the INTERNET. If you don't think today is better you're not using your time wisely. Collective information is the greatest social construct humans have ever created, without it we wouldn't even have a language to speak with. We have an extremely easy and efficient way to access all of mankind's collective knowledge. If you are only spending your time on this site, facebook, twitter, etc., no wonder you think the 90's are better, it's because you're letting the opportunity of unlimited information slip through your finger tips.

      Some will see tech as a powerful tool to assist their life, others will see it as a way of life. The ones who think way of life tend to be the weirdos.

      @LFW: co-sign. 2Pac was a good mainstream pop rapper. But it's time to pay attention to real artists from the 90s who created something new like Kool Kieth, Flatlinerz or Ras Kass.

    The 90's was dope! Everything was better. Hip-hop music/culture/style was obviously way better. NBA basketball was way better. WWE was better. Boxing was better. Movies were better. President (Clinton) was better. People were better. Most everything was fuckin' better in the 90's. I can respect the technology thing nowadays (it's go it's perks) but honestly, I'm not so sure it's all that necessary. It's made people more cold, selfish and less communicative. You see people walking down the street nowadays looking down at their phones. They can't put their phones away for 5 mins. It's like humans are now being brainwashed and controlled by technology (iphones, computers etc.). If I could go back to the 90's with my family, I definitely would. I could care less about this iphone/computer generation.

      Wrong. There's no such thing as better or worst, just different. You judging this current decade based on the 90's is a form of ethnocentrism, which is a big no-no if you are trying to be a decent person. Instead try practicing a little bit of cultural relativism.

    Today's internet troll are the same children who ride their bikes full speed in the middle of a busy intersection. You see the faces on those kids as you hit your brakes & how they continue pedalling as if to say they wasn't 3 milli seconds away from losing their life. If you see no logic in chasing that child down to explain to them the dangers of riding their bikes so reckless it's no sense in having a conversation with that same kid who traded in their dirt bikes for the internet. That's today's hip hop fan ya'll. go out for a drive now & see how tomorrow's fan will be worse.

    Tupac was always corny as all hell and a trashy simpleton. I can't think of one person with self-respect and dignity who admires this man.

    • most overrated rapper ever
      2pac is the most overrated rapper ever. Stans are acting if he was a god or something. but he wasnt. 10.000 songs of pac are the same: thug here and thug there, smoking weed and drinking hennesy. Lyrical he was average, just like his flow. Some songs had a meaning but pac was very contradicting.
    • That's original troll
      Said by an internet troll who hasn't achieved shit in his life so yep your opinion really holds a lot of weight . lol

      LOL butthurt pac stan. Everything he said is very true people cant handle the truth

      Nothing he said was true, you fucking hipster loser.

    Way too much weird stuff that went on with this case, the "facts" sound as ridiculous as 9/11 and the JFK incident. Autopsy photos messed with or faked a few things , it's just weird how PAC knew something was going to happen so soon around that time too, he made an unbelievable amount of music with important messages in them , hoping we don't get so caught up with the Rick Ross's and young thugs of music that we don't continue to be thirsty ass motherfuckers for more real shit and more PAC.
