According to an Instagram post made on Friday (January 18), Knight posted, “I GOT PAC BACK IN THE STUDIO. NEW MUSIC COMING.” He also captioned the post “This ain’t a joke. #NewDeathRow ??/>> Coming soon.
In addition to the post, NewDeathRow.com is in Knight’s bio, which features clothing baring the figurative label’s name.
It isn’t clear whether he’s saying Tupac’s actually in the studio with him or he has the masters of previously recorded music by the emcee. Either way, the Internet was confused.
In Jr’s IG comments were a bunch of skeptics. One commenter wrote, “Show us proof,” while another relayed, “Boi, bye! U needa quit clout chasin. Pac is trippin hard in his grave homie.”
If new music is being together with unreleased Tupac verses, Pac’s estate better be all for this. We’re here all with the thinking face emoji confused
For those living under a rock for the past quarter century, Tupac Shakur was gunned down on September 7, 1996 in Las Vegas. Suge Knight, who was his manager and head of Death Row Records was sentenced to serve 28 years in prison last September for a January 2015 hit-and-run death of Terry Carter. Knight was captured on camera reversing and hitting one man, identified as Cle “Bone” Sloan, and then driving forward over Carter, who ultimately died from his injuries.
