A new documentary titled Tupac Assassination 3: Battle For Compton makes some bold accusations surrounding the murder of 2Pac.
The film suggests Death Row co-founder Suge Knight’s then-wife Sharitha Golden and former Death Row security chief Reggie Wright Jr. allegedly killed Tupac in an attempt to kill Knight.Golden responded to the allegations in a video clip posted by TMZ.
“I’m so damn sick of getting 100,000 calls about this. No way in hell I would’ve murdered 2Pac. For what reason?” declared Golden. “This ridiculous theory that I had to get half of Death Row… I already had half of Death Row, America. When 2Pac died, what did Death Row become after that? Zero. Nothing. A downfall.”
Knight’s attorney has also denied the Golden/Wright murder theory was true, and Thaddeus Culpepper took issue with any suggestion he supported the claim.
“As counsel for Mr. Knight, my duty is to represent and assist him in his present cases,” stated Culpepper. “I have never made any statements regarding Tupac Shakur, nor have I made any statements on my client’s behalf regarding Mr. Shakur, written or otherwise. Articles relying on this unattributed press release are without merit.”
Rapper Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre will reportedly reunite to induct their late friend Tupac Shakur into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame next month.

T.I. and Tameka ‘Tiny’ Cottle’s reality TV show will come to an end after its upcoming sixth season.
It was reported in January that executives at U.S. network VH1 were on the brink of cancelling the estranged couple’s reality TV series “T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle” after its fifth season ended last year, but producers had managed to convince them to air one more series.
Now, VH1 bosses have now confirmed the upcoming sixth season will be the last in the series.
“VH1 is incredibly proud of this long running series and our partnership with Tip and Tameka,” said Nina L. Diaz, executive vice president at VH1 and MTV, in a statement.“For six years, they have opened their home and shared countless family moments with us. Reaching 100 episodes is a milestone and we couldn’t be more excited to bring viewers the highly anticipated final season.”
TMZ.com reported in January that the series would document their divorce after Tiny filed paperwork to end their six-year marriage in December of 2016 but it has since been revealed their divorce proceedings are on hold because she failed to formally notify the 36-year-old rapper of the legal action.
The case was due to be heard at a court in Georgia this month but it has been shelved by authorities until the former Xscape singer provides proof she served him with divorce papersThe TV series, which debuted in 2011, also documents the estranged couple’s efforts to co-parent their sons King, 12, Major Philant, eight, and daughter Heiress, who celebrates her first birthday later this month.
T.I., real name Clifford Harris Jr, is also father to three children from a previous relationship, while Tiny is mother to Zonnique Pullins from a prior romance.
Since the divorce news, the couple, who began dating in 2001, have remained on amicable terms and have been spotted on together on several occasions, including Valentine’s Day.
