Suge Knight finally snitched on Tupac's killers while behind bars
Bringing everyone up to speed on prison culture, there is exactly one thing you absolutely do not do: Snitch.
Touching kids and beating up women are up there as some of the more abhorrent things criminal codes despise, too. But snitching? That's top of the line shit, worse than offing someone for taking your bag of noodles. So why Suge Knight — gleefully rotting behind bars as we speak — is snitching on Tupac's murderers now? The world may never know.
The story, much like the entire saga has been for over two decades, is a twisted mess. Yet, according to a supposedly real and officially signed affidavit that's in existence somewhere (said to have been obtained by documentary film makers), Knight's lawyer Thaddeus Culpepper says Suge is pointing fingers at his ex-wife and former Death Row Records security chief Reggie White Jr.
Apparently, Suge was the target, not Pac. The two in question wanted to take over the company and couldn't do so with Suge being alive and all.
Knight is allegedly speaking out now because of a few points made in an upcoming documentary titled Tupac Assassination: Battle for Compton. The film's directors claim that multiple sources led them to corroborate the evidence while Suge agrees the rumors in the film are true.
Of course, we're using words like "allegedly" and "claim" because now there is a complete denial from Suge's lawyer about the whole damn thing.
“Very recently, a press release was issued stating that Attorney Thaddeus J. Culpepper wrote and signed an affidavit regarding the assassination of Tupac Shakur,” reads Culpepper’s statement. “The writers of the press release also state that the alleged affidavit contains statements from Suge Knight. The press release cites no author. As counsel for Mr. Knight, my duty is to assist him in proving his innocence in his present cases. I have never made any official statement regarding Tupac Shakur, nor have I made any statements on my client’s behalf regarding Mr. Shakur, written or otherwise. Articles relying on this unattributed press release are without merit. [T]hat affidavit is fake news."
The Daily Mail, on the other hand, reports "the film features Culpepper's signed affidavit - which was taken by former LAPD detective Russell Poole on July 18, 2015."
Grand marketing ploy to get everyone to check out the film now that it's been released? Could be. But it makes sense; we've seen pettier things on Dateline when it comes to ex-wives and money. The story at least lines up. And we'd be remiss to believe someone who uses the term "fake news." Only time will tell on this one.
