It’s an overwhelming saga to keep up with, even for the most dedicated of Tupac fans. Now that a special segment on Oxygen’s famed teleseries Snapped will uncover new details on the culprit behind his death, there may be a little more credibility on the latest claim this time. This is especially true considering that the claim reportedly came from the mouth of Pac himself.
Upon first glance of the Snapped: Notorious trailer, there isn’t much that stands out from the tons of other existing Tupac documentaries. There is, of course, more discourse on his relationship with his friend-turned-enemy, the late New York rap legend Notorious B.I.G. Pac’s closest friends and industry affiliates like Danny Boy, Yo-Yo, DJ Mister Cee and his first manager in the industry, Leila Steninberg, also show up for their respective thoughts on the explosive life and times of Pac.
TMZ points out that what we haven’t seen included in other Pac documentaries will reportedly arrive when the episode reveals his dying words as he lay on a hospital bed after his fatal 1996 shooting — in which he named the person who pulled the trigger. TMZ further reports that Pac uttered these words to Las Vegas police, who had no interest in pursuing his murderer, thus, leaving the case unsolved for over two decades to come. In one of the trailer’s scenes, the character portraying Pac is seen in the hospital, presumably after the shooting, as a nurse tends to him.
Fans will have to wait for the full story when Snapped: Notorious airs on September 10 on Oxygen.
