Suge Knight & 2Pac, 1996

tupac’s last performance - house of blues (los angeles, ca) photo by j lash When Suge Knight posted the $1.4 million bail for 2Pac’s release it brought rap’s most powerful voice back to the forefront. Although Pac would only live and work with Death Row for 9 months until his death, the amount of drama and material that brief stint produced has lasted for 12 years. With both of them already high-profile figures before their dealings with each other, every picture of Suge and Pac together seems like an event. Every time their names came up in a sentence together it was an event. Whether it was concerts at the House Of Blues, attacks on Bad Boy Records, fights in casino lobbies or unfortunately, shootings in Las Vegas. A lot has been said about Suge’s role in ‘Pac’s death, mostly speculation, but nothing has been proven. For years conspiracy theorists claimed the intro to ‘Pac’s Makaveli album said, “Suge shot me,” though it has been proven otherwise. Either way, most ‘Pac fans view the thought of his Death Row days as just that.
