A stunning new photograph claiming to show Tupac Shakur alive and well, 20 years after his supposed death, has gone viral across social media.
The astonishing picture has left millions of people convinced that previous rumors of Tupac faking his own death may actually be true, just weeks before the 20th anniversary of his death.
Tupac was infamously shot dead in Las Vegas in 1996 in a murder which remains unsolved, and the 20th anniversary of his death will occur in September.
Since his death, the music world has been flooded with conspiracy theories about who was behind the shooting and dozens of reports claiming the controversial star is still alive.
Now a new YouTube video titled ‘Tupac is alive new proof 2016’ claims it has the most convincing evidence the fallen rapper is still with us.
The video, which already has more than 1.8 million views, shows a selfie of a man wearing a bandanna who bears an amazing resemblance to Tupac.
It is claimed the man is “Tupac guys 100% same eyebrows and lips”.
The jacket the man is wearing is only said to have been released onto the market in 2012.
The subtitles in the video state the photo is a “selfie” taken in 2015 on a phone “made in 2011” – 11 years after his death, reports the Daily Star.
The video then plays out a song by rapper Kasinova Tha Don, who sounds just like the former rapper and actor. He has repeatedly refuted claims he is Tupac.
The video received a mixed reaction on YouTube.
One woman wrote: “The guy in the thumbnail looks about the right age, but I hate to see that he’s wearing a bandanna.
“This isn’t the nineties anymore, show me some real s***, this look like any regular old fool with a nose ring trying to pass himself off as Tupac.”
Another wrote: “I can’t believe it, he’s really alive! My dad is going to be so happy!
Earlier this year Thereportez.com claimed Tupac was living a secret life in Cuba and a photograph of the rapper emerged with pop star Rihanna, who would have been just eight at the time of his death.
