FBI Release Tupac Murder Files
The FBI has released files related to the death of rapper Tupac Shakur.
This news comes just days after the FBI released a 359-page document surrounding the death of rapper Chistopher “Notorious B.I.G.” Wallace.
In the 102-page document outlining Shakur’s murder, the report states: “Tupac Amaru Shakur (1971-1996) was an American rap music artist.
This release consists of a 1997 investigation into allegations that extortionate death threats had been made against Shakur and another rap artist by a domestic terrorist group.”
The domestic terrorist group reported as the Jewish Defense League, is believed to have participated in an extortion scheme against Shakur, N.W.A. rapper Eazy-E, who died from AIDS in 1995, and other rap artists.
Despite the JDL being named in the FBI reports, a direct relation to the organization and the murder of Shakur has not been made.
