|Some dare call it|
Tupac Shakur was a renowned rapper who released several very popular albums. He was politically-minded, and he had political aspirations that were cut short when he was murdered at the age of 25.
No, of course the story doesn't end there.
 Conspiracy theories
Y'know, it really doesn't help that his first posthumous album, released under his new stage name Makaveli, was titled Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory.
- No-one was convicted of Shakur's murder, so of course he must still be alive. There's a whole blog on this theory.
- More albums were released after his death than before it, so he must be secretly recording!
- General graphomancy on his lyrics (numerology, claims of allusions to events after his death).
- Shakur = Makaveli = Machiavelli. Advocates claim that Niccolò Machiavelli advocated faking one's own death in The Art Of War[wp], or faked his own death (neither of which is the case). Therefore Tupac faked his own death.
- LulzSec even made up and got media play for a story that he was hiding out in New Zealand.
- The number seven. That last album. His time of death was supposedly 4:03pm. 4+0+3=7. He was gunned down September 7th and died in hospital six days later, therefore he will rise on the seventh day. Tupac was killed seven months after his album All Eyez on Me. And his career lasted seven years.
- Shakur once called himself the Black Jesus. So fans who could do with a bit more chlorpromazine have ascertained that Shakur will return to Earth on June 13, 2014 at 3:04 pm.
- A hologram of Shakur at Coachella in April 2012 was seized upon as evidence of Project Blue Beam after a tweet to this effect.
- Some conspiracy theorists argue that Tupac Shakur was killed by the Illuminati because he allegedly rapped against them in several of his songs. In Shakur's song They Don't Give a Fuck About Us, he raps "some say Illuminati take my body to sleep, niggers at the party just as rowdy as me, before I flee computer chips I gotta deal with brothers flippin', I don't see no devils bleeding, only black blood dripping", and many morons argue that he is speaking against the Illuminati. (In fact, he is denying the theory, and claiming that people who spend copious amounts of time "researching" absurd conspiracy theories are in fact being distracted from real problems, such as racism and social inequality. He reinforced this in an interview conducted shortly before his death.)
 The recording career that would not die
Shakur's estate has lovingly kept his memory alive by releasing albums of just about every grunt or fart Shakur recorded any time, anywhere. These started at okay-for-fans and have since tunneled through the bottom of the barrel and straight into the bowels of Hell. Stick to the albums put together when he was alive and able to exercise any sort of quality control.
Those droolingly stupid tattoos of the words "THUG LIFE" that life's losers get tattooed across their bellies? They're copying Shakur.
