Tupac was a West Coast legend. While he was an icon and the voice for many people, he was also heavily involved in the East Coast-West Coast hip hop rivalry. On September 7, 1996, although reluctant about going to Las Vegas to play a gig, Tupac eventually relented, and enjoyed some high-stakes gambling before attending a heavyweight prizefight featuring his friend, Mike Tyson. Pumped up by Tyson’s victory, Tupac himself was involved in a violent brawl, and headed back to his hotel to freshen up. When Tupac finally arrived at the club for his own performance, a white Cadillac pulled up and a gunman fired a heavy round of bullets at the rapper’s car, mortally wounding him with a punctured lung. What led up to the shooting? We investigate on Final 24 on Wednesday, June 17th at 9/8c.
