For all you hardcore rap fans out there, is Tupac still alive?
Well, the short answer is Yes.
But he is in jail.
In Johnson City, Tennessee over the weekend, a man named Tupac Amaru Shakur — the exact first, middle, and last names as the Thug Life rapper who was murdered in a car beside Death Row Records CEO Suge Knight on the Las Vegas strip 23 years ago — was taken into custody.
Police responded to a call Saturday about Pac, who had outstanding arrest warrants. When officals tried to make the detainment, he came toward ’em with a knife.
That’s textbook Tupac.
The officers should’ve known better.
From Pac’s album One Million Strong:
Runnin‘ from the police (Yeah, I know what you mean)
No matter what I do, they got a n*gga
Still runnin’ from the police
(Put them mother****ing Nike’s on tight and get ghost y’all)
Still runnin’ from the police, I gets no sleep
I got you peepin’ in my window, while I’m smokin’ indo
But I ain’t no mother****ing track star, pigs got a jeep
Like [a friend] runnin’ through mother******’s backyards
So I grabs my piece before I flee
This time around, him grabsing his piece resulted in a bit of a scuffle, and when officers searched generously-tattooed Tupac, they found a syringe and multiple bags of meth.
The star was charged with aggravated assault, resisting arrest, unlawful drug paraphernalia, and simple possession of meth.
Tupac’s lookin’ a bit different these days, perhaps from the stress of having to hide from all other human beings since faking his death.
See for yourself:
No…not THAT Tupac.

Not quite the sheen he once had.
And it looks like he may suffer from sleep apnea.
Someone get that thug some hoes and a CPAP.
Oh, well — at least America’s favorite formerly-deceased rapper is still among us.
Of course, eventually — like all things — this too(pac) shall pass.
Especially if he keeps doing meth.
But that’s the thug life.
