Welcome to THG Asks, a feature in which two of THG's celebrity gossip experts debate topical issues in the entertainment world and you decide who wrote the winning argument!
Today, THG Asks: Is Tupac Shakur really dead?
YES. By Hilton Hater
Tupac Shakur once wondered, "I Wonder If Heaven's Got a Ghetto."
And the truth, no matter how badly you want to believe otherwise, is that the iconic rapper now knows for certain. He's gone. Deceased. Deader than Lindsay Lohan's movie career.
I know, I know: eight albums have been released since Tupac was shot in 1996. And that Tupac hologram at Coachella really did seem life-like.
But no credible source has ever reported a Tupac sighting. University Medical Center, one of the most respected hospitals in the country, pronounced him dead six days after he was gunned down in Las Vegas. Why would those doctors lie?
It can be hard to let go. But Life Goes On, Tupac once rapped to his fans. He'd want you to accept his fate, keep ya head up and be real to your women.
NO. By Free Britney
The Notorious B.I.G.'s posthumous album was titled Life After Death.
Many at Coachella feel they saw Biggie's arch rival, Tupac Shakur, experience this over the weekend. It's a great story ... except 2Pac is not really dead.
First off, Tupac's "death" in 1996 was too perfectly orchestrated and replete with too many biblical and numerological references to be simply coincidental.
The motives behind the fake murder are unclear - to avoid going to jail, or drum up sales for Death Row, or be reincarnated as Makaveli? - but the killing was staged.
It also remains unsolved. How convenient.
Second of all, the "hologram" of Tupac performing was 100 times more realistic than any hologram known to man. There's no way that wasn't a human being.
Think about it. If you could make holograms that cool, why wouldn't we see them in our daily lives, walking around left and right? It doesn't make any sense.
It does make for a media conspiracy. That "hologram" is just media telling us that it's fake because he's still the most wanted motherf--ker in America.
THG Asks you ... is Pac really dead?
