The Biggie Files: Part 2

Underdogs, here is your reminder to please check out the link above if you are just joining us! Also, please remember that each of these posts that I write about a person’s death that is surrounded in mystery is not meant to be offensive.  These are stories and theories about a real unsolved crime, and involves real people. While famous, Biggie Smalls had a family, a mother, wife, children, and friends. I don’t believe for a moment that his murder will ever be solved, but it doesn’t mean that people can’t still look into what happened. There were a lot of mistakes made, and a lot of questions that will never be answered. The point is, if we don’t learn from the mistakes that were made, we are are bound to repeat them over and over again. This particular case got a lot of attention because of who was killed, but it didn’t mean that anyone would ever solve the mystery. They may not want it solved. Let’s take a good look at who could have killed Biggie Smalls and why they got away with murder.


Before we get into this, I  want to specify that I don’t think that Biggie Smalls faked his own death. As I have said before, I think Tupac could have, but I don’t seem to find any real reason that would make me think Biggie faked his own death. Biggie was in a very dangerous situation at the time of his death. He lived with daily threats to his life and there were a lot of people very angry with him if he deserved it or not. People were blaming him for Tupac’s death, or were angry at him for his gang affiliation even though he wasn’t a member. To put it lightly, he had just as many people that wanted him dead as Tupac. I think Biggie was in the wrong place at the wrong time, and took a stupid gamble with his life that he lost. So who pulled the trigger? Or, who paid for the trigger to be pulled? Keep in mind one interesting thought. The 9 MM gun that was used to kill Biggie was very rare. In fact, there were only 2 in the United States at this time. One of those two guns belonged to David Mack, who was a person of interest in this case. Why is this still unsolved? No one wants to know the truth.

Suge Knight:

One of the easiest solutions to this theory is that Suge Knight arranged for the hit on Biggie Smalls. Many people blamed Biggie for the death of Tupac, however, no evidence that he had anything to do with his death. The rumor is that Biggie paid 1 million dollars to the young gang member, Orlando Anderson to carry out the hit. Biggie, himself was said to be in Las Vegas that night, but didn’t leave his hotel room. Instead, he paid Anderson to provoke a fight and kill both Tupac and Suge Knight. Again, none of this could be proven. However, it didn’t stop the rumor mill from going over time and this news eventually getting to Suge Knight.  While he survived the hit, Tupac was murdered and Suge was injured.

Suge Knight was the head of Death Row Records and is a very violent person. He is currently in jail for a few murders and attempted murders. Evidences suggests that Suge Knight hired a LAPD police officer, David Mack, to carry out Biggie’s murder. David Mack was on Suge Knight’s payroll since he moonlighted as a body guard to him and his wife. This is actually featured in several shows, including the “Unsolved” series on USA. There was a real life investigation launched about the LAPD, and there were people who went on record saying this is exactly what happened. This came to light due to the fact that Biggie’s Mother sued the LAPD for extreme neglect on this case, and for possible involvement in her son’s death.  However, once this thread was being pulled, it frayed and was stopped. This may be the most logical thing that got Biggie killed. Mack publicly denied any involvement in this case.


Sean Combs:

There are two different theories as to why Sean Combs had some sort of involvement in the death of Biggie. First, it was due to Comb’s actions that lead to the murder. People theorize that it was Sean Combs who hired the hit against Tupac and Suge Knight, to be carried about by gang members, and not Biggie at all. This meant that people were angry and out for blood. In order to strike back, Suge Knight hired a person to carry out a hit on Sean Combs, and Biggie Smalls. Combs and Biggie were supposed to be in the same car, but since they weren’t, Biggie was the one killed. This means that Combs killed Biggie in an indirect way due to his actions.

Others think that Combs killed Biggie in a very direct way, and wasn’t a case of him getting mixed up in a bad situation at all. People argue in this theory that the death of Tupac and Biggie actually had nothing to do with one another. In fact, Tupac was killed because of the fight he got into the night of his death. It was gang related and nothing more. However, Combs took advantage of this and set up a hit on his friend, Biggie. Why would he kill his friend? Money. The opportunity for money was too great, as a dead rapper makes more money than one who is alive. Tupac was all over the place and his music was selling like crazy. What would be better for Combs than to kill his biggest star? Combs was also put on the map after the death of Biggie Smalls. People knew who he was but only as a producer. After Biggie’s death, Combs had his own hit songs and music career. Did he need to get Biggie out of his way in order to further his career? Combs has publicly denied being part of this case.

Gang Violence:

Another very simple solution is to look for the obvious. The reason I keep saying that Biggie was not a gang member is because of the implication. Biggie ran with the Crips, and even wore their colors from time to time. However, he wasn’t a member of their gang. Why is this a big deal? Well, it puts a huge target on his back from not only rival gangs, but from the Crips themselves. Many gang members were pissed that Biggie was pretending to be part of their world, when he had nothing to do with it. It made them look bad. It made him look foolish. Why keep this act going when they could simply put a stop to it with a hit. Many people believe this is exactly what happened to Biggie.

 

Stranger than Fiction:

A few theories are very hard to research, but they are out there. One is that Biggie was killed by The National of Islam. However, it is very hard to find research on this matter. Another very strange theory is that both Tupac and Biggie were actually very sick. It seems that they had some symptoms of an unknown virus such as Zika and were killed in order to cover this up. While I don’t give these theories much thought, they are out there. It goes to show that a case such as this, should have been solved. Since it hasn’t, strange and crazy theories keep popping up. Maybe it’s just in order to keep an open dialog.

 

Those were just some of the very strange, and very real theories that are out there about the death of Biggie Smalls. We don’t know the answer. However, there is a lot of real evidence out there which will never see the light of day. The investigation was stopped, but no one knows why. It can be theorized that both Tupac and Biggie’s deaths actually are connected and to solve one, you will solve the other. What do you think? Who killed these men, or do you think that they are dead at all? People keep saying both Biggie and Tupac are alive and well. Why would they be after all of these years? What are your thoughts?

Underdogs, we dove deep into the Tupac conspiracy theories which you can find here: http://www.andtheunderdogwins.com/tupac-lies-part-1/ However, we can never separate one great conspiracy theory about this prominent rapper from the 1990’s, without including the Notorious B.I.G, AKA Biggie Smalls. Both of these very young men were killed via gun violence after a much publicized feud between East Coast and West Coast rappers. They were the poster children of this feud, and it cost them their lives. Of course this is if you believe that Tupac is actually dead. Both of these men deserve to have their story told because their murders have never been solved. They are still cold cases that will never have the truth see the light of day. The murder of Biggie, however, is so terrible that the LAPD was sued about their possible involvement and cover up with his death. Who killed Biggie Smalls and did his murder really have anything to do with the death of Tupac?

Christopher Wallace was only 24 years old when he was shot and killed on March 9th, 1997. This was right on the heels of the death of Tupac and the world became chaotic. While Biggie was not associated with gangs, he was definitely no stranger to breaking the law. As a high school drop out, Biggie sold drugs as his source of income. This was also in efforts to help support his baby daughter. He ended up in jail for almost a year because of his drug activities. He also had charges of assault, gun charges, and suspension of robbery, which the latter was never proven. All of this, but people always claimed that Biggie was a kind and gentle person. It was many people’s opinion that Biggie did what he had to do in order to survive and provide for his child. He was not seen as outwardly violent.

After his second time in jail, Biggie decided to do whatever it took to keep him from going back. He and some friends recorded some tracks and sent them to several radio stations in New York. Eventually, Sean “Puffy, Puff Daddy, P. Diddy” Combs heard one of Biggie’s tracks and arranged to meet him.  Sean Combs was impressed and signed Biggie to his record company, and became a very good friend. Eventually, Biggie would start recording albums after being a guest on other rappers albums. He eventually struck up a friendship with another up and coming rapper named Tupac Shakur. Their relationship was complicated at the least. At first, they were good friends. However, when Tupac was recording in the same studio as Biggie years later, he was shot outside. Biggie was noticeably absent from the scene thus making Tupac very angry. Some think Tupac blamed Biggie for the hit, while others knew he was hurt that his friend wasn’t at his side.

This single incident blew up the East Coast and West Coast rap feud. At least, that is what the media would have the general public believe. The media had a filed day with the shooting and made these men unwittingly participants in their game to get the best story. Both Biggie and Tupac were angry at each other, but many close to them say that it was blown way out of proportion.  While this incident damaged their relationship, it did not end it. In fact, they were smart enough to play along with the media in order to get records sales, at first. Then, they focused on bringing attention to the race and gang wars that were so prevalent in the 1990’s. People couldn’t tell reality from fiction, and while they were trying to promote a platform for the realities of gang violence, people couldn’t separate Biggie and Tupac from the media storm.  They not only become the icons, but the voices of those who they represented, which proved to be very dangerous. Specifically, Biggie was associated with the Crips, but never was part of the gang. The fact the he ran with them, and wore their colors made him a walking target for a lot of people.

The simple story of Biggie’s death is as follows. Following an appearance on the Soul Train Awards, Biggie and his entourage left the building.  It was right after Tupac was killed and tensions were very high. Rumors were already spreading that Biggie had been the one who called the hit on Tupac. Biggie was actually meet with boos on the stage during the award show so things were not going well. Outside of the awards ceremony was a bunch of gang members from both the Bloods and the Crips.  At this moment in time, the tension was overwhelming, and people had told Biggie to stay home. The entire week before his murder, Biggie was meet with threats and even spoke about it during radio interviews. He was well aware that his life was in danger, but he decided to keep making public appearances. This was either out of stubbornness, or in an attempt to show he wasn’t one to be pushed around.

Biggie, his wife, Faith Evans, and several other people went to after hour parties in hotel and clubs. One of these places was a hotel that shut down the party due to fire hazards. This, in turn, shut down several streets because of the amount of traffic from all of the people leaving this party. Biggie was in a car with a few friends, followed by Sean Combs, and his wife farther behind them. At a stop light a black Chevy Impala drove up next to their car and opened fire. The first reports say the gunman was an African American male with a 9 MM. Biggie was hit in the chest and the only one injured. He died at the hospital less than 45 minutes later.

The investigation into Biggie’s death was almost nonexistent. Just as quickly as the murder happened, was just as quickly as it was forgotten by the LAPD. It was very strange that a homicide, and of a very famous person at that, was pushed aside like nothing happened. People were outraged and demanded a proper investigation. However, they never really got one. Biggie’s Mother sued LA, and the LAPD for neglecting a crime. A massive investigation was launched years after the murder. However, it was stopped the moment they were able to clear their department of any involvement. That didn’t mean that there wasn’t some very serious things uncovered with this investigation. The rabbit whole ran deep,and it looks like people got away with murder. How far did this plan go?Did Biggie really have anything to do with Tupac’s death? Did Suge Knight or even Sean Combs have a hand in killing Biggie? Tune in next time to find out!

This story has taken so many twists and turns, that it is hard to keep up. No matter what you believe, we know that this murder is famous and unsolved. So far, we have explored the realistic situation that the world was in at the moment of his death, and how Tupac had a lot of people that wanted him dead. I will not be going over the 7 day theory in this post in order to explore other possible theories that are more evidence based. I will put on my tin foil hat for that and other theories surrounding Tupac’s death at a later time. Right now, let’s look at realistic things and inconsistencies that making faking his own death seem like a real option. Remember, while all theories, these are real people involved in this whole drama, and real people are no longer around. This isn’t meant to harm, but to open up a dialog of an unsolved death.

Before Tupac passed, it was revealed that he had been acting strange. Snoop Dog talked about the last time that he recorded with Tupac. Tupac was deeply obsessed with getting as many tracks done as possible. He worked at the pace of a mad man and Snoop found the whole situation strange. He said normally when they would record, they would put down a track, then listen to it and figure out what to do differently. After that, they would rerecord and the process to make one song could take hours or even days. Tupac went through several songs an hour, and didn’t stop. He didn’t listen to the track after recording, but kept going and going, causing many of the house musicians and rappers to walk out in order to get some rest. What does this mean? It could be that he was a workaholic and wanted to produce his art when he was in the zone. Or, like Snoop suspects, he could have been preparing for something. This could mean he had a feeling that he was going to die, or he was faking his death and made sure that the music kept going and that his loved ones would be taken care of off of the sales of the records. Either way this strange event is just one in a line of many that may prove Tupac is alive.

Of course, the biggest things to look at about inconsistencies is the newscast directly after the shooting. Keep in mind that this happened in the 1990’s and cameras were not everywhere. There was not instant news and not everyone was so connected. (Each of these videos in full length are visible by a simple search on YouTube.)  This means that several news outlets came after they found out that there had been a shooting involving 2 major stars. They didn’t have one major script to go off as they do today, so hardly any of the reporters had the same story, or even the same information. Information was not as manipulated then as it is now, so the truth may have slipped through the official story just by reporters doing their job.

See the source image

The official story is that Tupac was shot, and Suge Knight drove a mile before police pulled them over where they were put into an ambulance. One eye witness was interviewed and told the reporter that she was there for the Mike Tyson fight. They came after the commotion of the shooting and witnessed Tupac being taken away in a medical helicopter. Medical helicopters were dispatched in the area that night, but it has never been confirmed as to why. While the official story was that Tupac was so hurt he never was able to speak again, the police officer who arrived on the scene had a very different story. He was interviewed and asked Tupac if he knew who shot him. Tupac answered, “F@$K You,” and closed his eyes. The officer could hear Tupac talking as he was taken away. At the hospital, a reporter was outside and talking about how he had spoken to the family and their team of doctors had made a statement. That statement was that Tupac had been shot, however was doing well and was expected to make a full recovery. Of course, the official story was that Tupac was placed into a medical coma and died from cardiac arrest. Or was that the real cause? Conflicting reports say that Tupac had a major surgery to remove his full lung after being shot. A second report says that he bleed out due to internal injuries, while a third says he had a stroke. Even Suge Knight jumps back and forth on his story about Tupac’s condition. He at first said he was fine, and that they were even joking before he left to go home. Then he said Tupac was in terrible shape and he knew he was going to die. A third time, he states the Tupac never gained consciousnesses after the shooting.

This isn’t the only strange and conflicting things with this story. First, Tupac had an autopsy done and was quickly cremated. The person who cremated Tupac promptly retired and has been under the radar since. He never was given a funeral or any other service after he died. An autopsy was strange enough because those are done in order to find the cause of death. It was known that the cause of death was the shooting. Yes, they went to recovery the bullets, but that is not the same as doing an autopsy. Now, the photos of the autopsy is out there, but I will not direct you to them. However, I will show you a few things that may make you question the reality of the situation. It is very clear that the official autopsy photo was lifted from a still from the California Love music video.  The photo here (found via nyahela.wordpress.com) shows in grey what the basis of the photo is from. It was taken and made to look like Tupac was cut open. However, it was missing a very key things. Tupac, at this time didn’t have a neck tattoo, but when he died he did have one. The autopsy photos no neck tattoo at all, which would have been visible. The report also states that Tupac weighed over 200 pounds when his licence said he only weighed 168 pounds. That isn’t just a few pounds off, but 32!

See the source image

Of course there is the question of the very last photo that was taken of Tupac before he was killed. This photo was supposed to be taken right before the women in the cars stared talking to Tupac and Suge Knight, and prior to the shooting. While at a glance, nothing seems off, but a closer look shows something strange. Tupac is in the passenger seat and Suge Knight is behind the wheel. The car is paused, but was being driven. It is really hard to drive a car when there aren’t any keys in the ignition. The time stamp for this photo is the day after he was killed. If you didn’t live through the ages of taking real photos, then you may not know about time stamps. Time stamps were made on the day that they were taken, not the day they were developed. This means that this photo is either photo-shopped, which wasn’t around then or staged. Many people believe this is a manipulated photo which took different photos of Tupac and Suge Knight and placed them into this car.

The car itself raises a lot of questions. People say that the car shown in the photo, and the car shown after the shooting are two different cars. In fact, just this week, the very car that Tupac and Suge were shot in came up for auction. It has been repaired, of course. The strange thing is that one of the people at the auction house said that this wasn’t the car that Tupac wanted to drive that night. There had been rumors for years that he had a bullet proof car, and according to the auction house, he had one but it was not used that day in Las Vegas. The car itself, that was shown during news reports seemed to be in rather good shape for taking 14 to 15 bullets. Honestly it looked like a brand new shiny car.

We also want to take a look at the other strange things that happened during the whole thing. As I have said before, Tupac didn’t want to go to Las Vegas but randomly changed his mind at the last minute. His security team was told not to come with weapons that night, and there was no one else in the car besides Tupac and Suge Knight. It is strange because normally there would be several people in the car including friends and body guards. This has been confirmed by Tupac’s personal security team, who were appalled at the request. Especially since the only thing they had to protect him was their person, and they were no where near him at the time of the shooting. This was all due to the request of Tupac and Suge Knight.  Tupac wore a bullet proof vest everywhere except for this one time that got him killed. The huge fight at the MGM Grand seemed staged to several witnesses. They believed that it was a cover up to distract from the plan of setting up the fake shooting.

The last thing to look at is all the sightings. Tupac has been seen everywhere. Just this week the rumor of Tupac being in Somalia has surfaced. While there are no photos, there are stories. There are also people who have seen him in Cuba. Why Cuba? Tupac has several family members who are in political exile for their associations for crimes committed during the time they were members of the Black Panther Party. His Aunt, cousins and brother all had been on the FBI most wanted list and fled to Cuba to avoid prosecution. In 2012, President Obama pardoned a large group of people who were in this situation including some, but not all of Tupac”s family members. This made the rumor mill go crazy and people were expecting that Tupac himself would show up. He had a lot of eyes on him, and he was being watched by the FBI and CIA. He had reasons to run outside of having a lot of people who wanted him dead.

While we aren’t sure if Tupac is alive or not, one thing sticks out to me. Anyone who looks remotely like Tupac seem to be deemed to be him. People don’t take into consideration that they style he was famous for is still very popular. The photos taken of people who look like they could be Tupac, seem as though they are around the same age he was when he died. Tupac was only 25 when he was killed. He was a very young man with a whole lot of life left. He would look different over 20 years later than he did when he was at the height of his career. It’s all very confusing because the one person who actually knows what happened is not a reliable witness. Suge Knight is a very dangerous person, and has proven this time and time again. He got away with a scratch from a terrible shooting, which seems a bit too lucky. He also can’t seem to keep his story straight. He jumps from Tupac being alive and faking his death, to watching his Mom pull the plug. He says he talked to Tupac after the shooting, yet he never regained consciousness as well. Suge says he knows who killed Tupac, and names Puff Daddy, or several other people, and then says he didn’t see anything. None of this adds up which leave room for lots of conjecture. Tupac was shoot and killed for a reason, but who knows if it was all an act, or reality.

Next time, we will look at the 7 day Theory. What do you think? Did Tupac fake his own death?

Tupac Lies: Part 2

Hello Underdogs! If you have not read the first part of my blog called Tupac Lies Part 1, please do so before reading this blog post by following the link here: http://www.andtheunderdogwins.com/tupac-lies-part-1/  Doing research for this post has been very eye opening since there are so many moving parts, and no one seems to know the truth of what actually happened.While he is more famous in death than he ever was in life, he still deserves justice for what happened to him. Or did anything actually happen to Tupac? I have been talking polls on my Facebook page in an attempt to see what the people believe happened to Tupac. The majority of people polled believed that Tupac died that night at the fight in Las Vegas. However, an overwhelming amount of people believe that Tupac’s murder was part of a bigger conspiracy. For this post, we are going to explore a step further than the previous post with the amount of people who wanted Tupac dead. We are going to take a look at the conspiracies surrounding why he may have been murdered.

As you may recall, Tupac was murdered in a shoot out on September 13th, 1995. The murder took place right after the famous Mike Tyson fight at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino. This was a sold out fight, with lots of people and media attention. Moments before leaving the building, Tupac and his crew supposedly got into an altercation with Orlando Anderson, a gang member. While this was caught on film, it is very hard to tell who is fighting who, although we can all agree a fight took place that night. Tupac left the building with Suge Knight, and at least 15 other cars in their crew. Strangely enough, Tupac and Suge Knight would leave alone without any of their body guards or anyone else protecting them. At a stop light, women were trying to persuade the two men to go to a club when a white unmarked car pulled out next to them and opened fire. They believe 14 shots were fired, with 4 hitting Tupac with one grazing Suge Knight. Tupac was taken to the hospital after Suge Knight drove them down the street. Tupac passed away several days later after being in a coma. So who murdered Tupac? Turns out that question isn’t as easy to answer as one would think.

First, is the most obvious and least shocking theory. Normally, the things that are the most obvious and the most simple answer are usually true. Tupac was killed because of his actions that he took the MGM Grand. He knowingly got into a fight with a gang member who was known for his own violent past. Tupac had his own violent demons and a fight like this could have caused a series of events that ended his life. He was part of a huge fight in a very public place, in a very public event. While many will rightfully point out how strange this whole situation was, it is important to keep in mind the level of racial tension going on at that moment. You could feel it in the air, and the East Coast Vs. West Coast was a very deadly game that many people were not only playing, but taking full advantage of. Orlando Anderson had the means, motive, and opportunity to carry out the murder of Tupac. This was where he lived, and where he had the advantage. It would have taken very little time to carry out the murder. We will never know the truth because Anderson was murdered a few years later. While this seems like a logical belief, the Las Vegas Police Department stands behind their belief that this fight and the murder of Tupac had nothing to do with each other.

Hundreds of people witnessed this murder, and it can be argued that just as many wanted Tupac dead. If it wasn’t Anderson who killed Tupac, there were a long list of people willing to do the job. Tupac was connected to the murder of a young man during a concert that he paid the family a settlement. That young man had a family and people that loved him. It isn’t a far fetched idea to believe that one of them took advantage of the mass confusion of such a huge event. Tupac also had a very violent past, which included the sexual assault of a woman that he served time in jail for hurting. What would stop the victim, or her loved ones from carrying out their own hit against the man who was brutal and violent. Those aren’t the only people that Tupac hurt. He had a long list of people that he took violent action against, and it wasn’t against people who were just going to sit back and let this happen.

Of course, there could be more to this than a simple answer of a long list of people who wanted Tupac dead, or even gang violence. It could come down to the most simple thing in the universe, money. Tupac owed millions of dollars to Suge Knight and Death Row Records. Suge Knight put up the money to defend and get Tupac out on bail for his various crimes including rape. Tupac fulfilled his record contract under Death Row Records which meant he was free to go do what he really wanted, which was to go solo and open his own recording company. It is rumored that Suge Knight hired a hit man to take Tupac out in order to stop him from leaving the company, and to gain control of all of his future music endeavors. It is well known that a celebrity is worth more dead than alive, and Tupac had a large, untapped vault of music that had yet to be released. Tupac was a cash cow that Suge Knight was not ready to stop milking. Who knows, but Suge Knight was very lucky that all those shots in the car were low and hit Tupac instead of him.

Another theory is that Biggie Smalls had Tupac killed. While literally no one close to the families of the late rappers, believe this, the story is out there and been hashed over and over again by several news media outlets.  It was rumored that Biggie Smalls was also at Las Vegas that night, and hired gang members to carry out a hit on Tupac. No one can connect Biggie Smalls to being at Las Vegas that night. Most people now understand that the tension between these two was mostly fabricated for story purposes and getting record sales. Unfortunately, these men could have been unwittingly maters for their own cause. While Biggie was there when Tupac was shot and robbed the first time, there is still no reason to believe that one event had anything to do with the other. It was all a bunch of circumstances evidence that happened, but both of these men paid with their lives.

There is also rumors that Sean “P. Diddy, Puff Daddy, Puffy” Combs had something to do with both of their deaths. First, it was rumored that Sean Combs hired a person to take out both Tupac and Suge Knight. Combs and Smalls were friends and Combs apparently hated both Tupac and Suge Knight. The death of Tupac had repercussions, which was the accidental murder of Biggie Smalls. Some investigators believe that Biggie was never supposed to die that day. They believe that Sean Combs, who was directly behind Biggie in a car following him, was the intended target. Given that his death happened in broad daylight with lots of witnesses including police officers, anything is possible. Lucky enough, the two men said to be responsible for the hit of Tupac, and the hit of Biggie are dead and there is no way to prove this story.

As strange as this is, Tupac being killed may have also been a mistake. Suge Knight has come out to say several things, including how he thinks Tupac is alive and well,and also how he witnessed Tupac die. Suge Knight said that the reason Tupac was killed that night was pure accident. Suge theorizes that his ex wife, and a friend hired a hit man to take him out. Suge had done a lot of lying, cheating, and killing, and his wife had enough. Afraid to take him to court because of his powerful status, she opted instead to have him killed. Tupac was not supposed to be at Las Vegas that night. He wanted to stay home, but was convinced at the last minute to join Suge Knight. Suge and Tupac getting together in a car alone also seemed like a last moment choice, and Tupac paid with his life.  Who knows, but with Suge Knights track record, it is really hard to take anything he says seriously. This is the same guy who tried to claim self defense on running over a man repeatedly, and then running down a second man. Sadly, Suge Knight might actually be the only real witness left, but we will never know.

While there are multiple people who wanted Tupac dead, and theorizes of accidents, we still haven’t covered the government. While this may seem like a tin foil hat theory, there is enough reasonable proof to go down this path. Tupac’s entire family was involved with politics, mainly the Black Panthers. While there are many non violent sects of the Black Panther party, several were violent and outspoken. Tupac’s own Mother was a suspect in murder. His Father was on the FBI most wanted list. Aunts, cousins, and step family all were politically charged people which was dangerous in the height of the Black Panther Party in the 60’s and 70’s. Several members of his family were followed by the government, had their phones tapped, and even took political exile in Cuba and other countries. Fast forward to the 1980’s, and 90’s where a young, outspoken black man is shining a light on gang violence and the never ending cycle of poverty, AIDS, and violence within their community, and all of a sudden, Tupac has a target on his back. Both Tupac and Biggie made police brutality, front and center to their music, and they talked about racism and race relations every chance that they could get. This made Tupac a very dangerous person in the eyes of police and the government, and it was easier to take him out than to let him live and keep spreading the word. There has been stories of Tupac being followed and even being on FBI watch lists, not just for who his family was, but for his own thoughts and actions. We all know from history what happens when a person who speaks for the voiceless gets a little too powerful.

Most people believe if Tupac was murdered, then a conspiracy follows and this rabbit hole goes very deep. Tupac’s death is very strange and nothing adds up. There are more and more questions as each year passes, and a few more people are coming forward with their own version of the truth. The thing is, there is enough evidence to really look into the fact that Tupac may have faked his own death. This is not as far fetched as one would believe, and in the next post, you will see how feasible this may be. The song remains the same, but we will never hear it’s end. In the meantime, we can explore all avenues to see what could have happened to this super star that was silenced.

Paul is a Zombie

Underdogs, if you didn’t know my all time favorite band is The Beatles. I’m a huge fan of Paul McCartney as well, which means that I haTve heard the old conspiracy theory. The theory is that Paul is dead and he was replaced by a look a like. There are many clues that make people come to this conclusion. If this is true, then the living Beatles and their company has been fooling the public for over 40 years! That is a pretty long time for a theory to remain alive, while Paul remains dead. Like a zombie, this rumor keeps coming back. Let’s take a look and see why some many people believe that Paul is dead.

First, let’s go over the facts. Paul McCartney was involved in a minor car accident in 1967. No one was hurt beyond some bumps and bruises, and some damages. No fatalities were ever reported, but somehow this turned from an accident into Paul being killed. There was a person who was from Iowa who wrote an article about he thought there were clues that Paul had been killed. A radio D.J. also added fuel to the fire by broadcasting his views and saying he there are many clues to show that Paul isn’t just dead, but has been replaced by a look alike! It may be hard to imagine now, but radio D.J’s had a lot of power back in the day. One of them saying something about a conspiracy would catch on like wild fire and it would be equated to something trending on Twitter today.

One of the clues people point to is the cover of the Beatles last studio album called, “Abbey Road.” John, Paul, George, and Ringo are simple walking across the street. This has become one of the most iconic musically and pop culture images ever. The only thing that is sort of strange is that Paul is not wearing any shoes.People claim this is symbolic of a funeral procession. There are also clues in the music itself. In the song, “Strawberry Fields Forever,” we can hear John saying something at the very end of the song that sounds very eerily like, “I buried Paul.” This was disproved as it was John really saying a nonsense term, “Cranberry Sauce.” Including in the “Sergeant Peppers” album is a picture of all the Beatles but only with Paul with his back turned away from the camera.

Other clues include the wreath of flowers on the cover of “Sergeant Peppers” which is in the shape of a bass guitar. Also, there are a few claims that if you play “Revolution Number 9” backwards, you hear John say, “I miss Paul.” The invention of the character Billy Shears is supposed to be the name of the person who replaced Paul. The biggest clue is that Ringo Starr himself did an interview in the past few years that admitted that Paul is dead and he was replaced. What a way to blow your mind! Didn’t you know that the lyric, “he blew his mind out in a car” from “A Day in the Life” refereed to Paul’s car accident? It’s a very terrible ordeal.

A piece of evidence that I keep hearing over and over again is that the truth is in the music. What people mean is that Paul’s music is no where near as amazing as what it was when he was with the Beatles. In fact, everything that he did in Wings, and his solo career are more bubble gum pop, and just not as steller and deep as some of the Beatles tracks. People also say that he doesn’t sound the same as he used to, meaning that Paul is dead and his replacement is just no where near as good.

All of this is laughable to me. I am a conspiracy theorist, but this one has always made me chuckle. Let’s break this down. There was an accident but it was not fatal for anyone. The Beatles crossing the street was the idea of the photographer. Paul was not wearing shoes for two very good reason. First, it was incredibly hot that day, and he was sweating. He tried to cool off by taking off his shoes. The second reason is that it was the Sixties. It was not unusual to see people walk around bare foot. This was just a moment caught in a photo. There are outtakes of this photo that didn’t make the cover which Paul had on shoes. As for Paul having his back towards the camera, that actually was an actor! There is a small bit of truth in this whole thing. Paul was booked for another project the day they were shooting the album art. They brought in a person who wore the same size as Paul to get the photo they needed. This is not abnormal even today.

The bass wreath was in honor of Stu Sheffiled who was a former member of the Beatles. He passed away in his twenties from head trauma due to a fight. They all worked with him, and this was a way to pay tribute to their friend. As far as what people have heard in songs, it is all up to interpretation. This was the Sixties, and people were experimenting with all sorts of things in the world of music. There are some things hidden in many songs.  Th Beatles, as well as many other groups, experimented with backwards tracks and subliminal messages. This was meant for art, not for anything deep. Plus, these guys were on a lot of drugs. They may have been reciting their grocery list and people took it as a deep and meaningful message. The lyric about blowing his mind out in the car was a line written by John. The whole song is about his friend, a member of the royal family, who was killed in a car.

As far as Paul’s music being too pop, it always has been. I have read countless books on the Beatles where both John and even Paul joke about this very topic. Paul is excellent at writing an upbeat, catchy song. However, it may not have a lot of substance to it. That has been since he was writing songs. There is a reason why his songs are so well loved, because he appeals to a lot of people. He has never been a super deep writer, save for a few songs. However, he knows how to write a popular song. The man sounds different because he is older. However, I have seen him alive in concert and he is amazing! It was literally the best concert that I have ever seen in my life.

I don’t think there real substance here. This is a great story, and I think generations of people are having fun connecting the dots. However, Paul McCartney is alive and well, and we should enjoy him while we have him here. He is a living legend, not a zombie. Take a chance to see him if you ever get it, and listen to his music often. There is a reason his, and the Beatles music is the best in the world which inspired millions of people and artists.

 

What do you think, is Paul dead?

As I write this blog about a Halloween playlist, keep in mind that it is September! It is not Christmas, yet I am hearing Christmas music as I walk through stores. There has already been decorations out for weeks,  and I find myself getting more and more annoyed about this each year. Halloween should not be glossed over. In fact, it is my favorite holiday, and it doesn’t even get to have it’s own holiday anymore. Instead, it’s just a placeholder for Christmas. It’s time to take back the all the holidays and stop letting Christmas be celebrated for six months out of the year in the orgies of corporate greed. Halloween  is fun, and I am not ready to hear Christmas music until it’s a lot closer to the actual date of December 25th, not anytime in September! To help you get into the Halloween mood, here is a Halloween playlist of songs for you enjoy!

“The Monster Mash!” This is one of those oldie, but goodie songs that you hear your parents and maybe even grandparent’s talk about. It is a fun song from 1962, which has had a lot of versions. It’s super fun adventure of a mad scientist finding his monsters doing a dance. It has been in many movies, and TV shows, so many people are very familiar with this fun tune!  Monster Mash Cartoon

 

 

“Voodoo” by Godsmack. Oh my, if you don’t enjoy this song and it stirs something in you, then you aren’t human! The drums, the voice, it takes you to another world! This song came out in 1997, but has been used in countless films and shows. It can bring fear, and stir up some spirits! It’s an excellent song! If you can, find the long version that has the drum solo at the end.

 

 

“Living Dead Girl” by Rob Zombie. One of my favorite Rob Zombie songs, you can see why he has such a amazing taste for all things horror. If you have never seen the music video, it is a great throw back to silent movies and circus side shows. Take a look at it here: Living Dead Girl on YouTube

“Dracula” By Rob Zombie. Another classic song from the 1990’s that makes you feel like it’s time for Halloween! Or makes you feel like you are ready to go jump into a mosh pit. “Dig through the ditches and burn through the witches,” is still one of the most repeated lyrics heard today. This video is like a trip down B movie hell. Dracula by Rob Zombie

 

Image result for ghostbusters theme

“Ghostbuster’s Theme” by Ray Parker Jr. I know this might be corny to some people, but seriously, who ya gonna call? If you grew up in the 1980’s or 1990’s, this song has been a staple in your life. When you get frustrated or worried that you have ghosts in your house, don’t you just wish that you could pick up the phone and call the Ghostbusters? I wish that I could! Because there is something strange, in the neighborhood!

 

Image result for time warp dance

 

“Time Warp” Rocky Horror Picture Show Soundtrack: What a classic song, with it’s own dance that almost anyone can do. It’s just a jump to the left, and a step to the right! I highly recommend using this song at any party and add to your Halloween Playlist because everyone in the room will join in! It’s fun, simple, and brings a lot of joy every single time!

 

 

“Sweet Transvestite” Rocky Horror Picture Show Soundtrack: There is no other song that defines this movie, or even a whole bunch of people than the moment we meet Dr. Frankenfurter. This is the first time many people have seen a person on screen mess around with gender roles. It’s a powerful moment for many people, and a heck of a great song! Oh Rocky!

 

“The Addams Family” TV Theme Song. Get your hands ready to snap some fingers, because here comes the most well known theme song ever! The Addams Family is a TV show from the 1960’s and movies from the 1990’s about a rather strange, but loving family. They are anything but normal, but this is such a fun show and a very fun song! I would check out the TV show if you have never seen it before. Try it via Amazon Prime with your 30 day free trial here.

Theory Thursday: The 27 Club

Hello Underdogs, and I hope you are a wonderful Thursday! If you are a music lover, then you have heard of the famous 27 club. If you haven’t, then this is a club that you never want to gain access to. The 27 club is a term to describe the insane amount of people in the music industry who died at the age of 27 years old. While people credit Kurt Cobain’s Mother as the person who coined the term, it has actually been around for years. Many writers and journalists have been using the phrase, “27 Club,” since the 1970’s. Their manner of death  for these musicians are hardly ever natural. They include, murder, homicide, addiction, drowning, and even killing themselves. The whole thing is very sad, and a bit unnerving. Some think that there is a real live curse that is killing these great stars. There is no science to back any of this up, but the list of the dead makes an compelling argument.

The generally agreed upon start of the 27 Club was with Brian Jones, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin and Jimi Hindrix. These people died between the years 1969-1970 and were all 27 years old. It was such a huge loss to the music world, that it never really recovered. Each of their deaths could be considered strange. Brian Jones,who was part of the Rolling Stones, died by drowning in a pool. Jim Morrison’s whole case is insane. He apparently died in a bath tub after suffering a heart attack, but no one knows for sure because his death was kept quiet for hours! Janis Joplin died of an overdoes, and Jimi Hindrix, well again, no one knows the real story behind his death. They say he died of chocking on his own vomit, or trying a drill a hole in his head. No one knows for sure. The mystery shrouded in these cases still have people shaking their heads in confusion to this day. But that’s not where it stops, there are more examples of strange instances of death at the age of 27 through each decade!

In the 1970’s, guitarist Leslie Harvey, was shocked while picking up a microphone that wasn’t grounded. Singer Chris Bell, from the band Big Star, was killed in a car accident, as well singer Jacob Miller. Ron Mckeran, from the Greatful Dead, died from a hemorrhage. Roger Lee Durham, singer from Bloodstone, died after he was thrown from a horse. Pat Ham, from Badfinger, hanged himself.

In the 1980’s, Jacob Miller from the band Inner Circle, died from a car accident. Alex Basquait from the band, Gary died of an overdoes from a speed ball. Pete de Fretias from Echo and the Bunnyman died in a bike accident. In the 1990’s, Chris Austin who worked with Reba, died in a plane crash. Rappers Stretch, Fat Pat, and Freaky Tah were all murdered. Rickey Edwards from the band, Manic Street Preachers vanished at the age of 27 without a trace and presumed dead. One of the saddest cases was Mia Zapata from the band, The Gits. Mia was beaten and killed while walking home. She was in the wrong place, and the wrong time. Her case was cold for years, and fellow grunge artists raised money to hire a P.I. to help find her killer. He was found in 2002 and was tried and found guilty. Kurt Cobain from Nirvana was murdered in 1994. (That’s right, I said murdered!) Kristen Praff from the band Hole, died of an apparent overdoes.

Continuing on with this club up until the present day, here are a few more sad examples. Mexican singer, Valentin Elizadale, was gunned down after his concert along with his assistant and manager. Amy Winehouse, sadly died of her addiction to alcohol. Richard Turner, from Friendly Fire, died of a heart attack. Singer Orich Grinstead, died of kidney failure. Bryan Ottoson, from American Head Changed died of an overdose. Achick Spin from the band, Spin, died in a traffic accident. James Larwance, from Friendzone, died of an unknown reason in 2017.

This is just a small example of a very long list that can be traced back to 1938, of people working in the music industry who died at the age of 27. It is very hard to ignore the staggering numbers of people who have died! It really does seem like some sort of curse. However, everyone dies. I am not sure if this number really is that staggering considering you are only looking at a small percentage of people. For example, would this number be just as high for office workers? The lifestyle of a musician seems to be a contributing factor in their deaths. Many people are addicted to several substances, and have the means to buy whatever they want. Creative people are famous for having issues with self-esteem and depression. Mental illness is still a very taboo topic, but would have been even worse 40 or 50 years ago.  There are some very sad examples of illness and murder that can happen to anyone, at any age. These people just happened to be 27 and work in the music world.

I don’t think that there is any sort of real club, nor is it anyone’s goal to be part of it. The life of a rock star can be short, depending on how they decided to live their life. It’s not always glamour and glitz, but can be a very dark world. I don’t think there is a curse, like some people have suggested, because we are only looking at a small part of the population. Now, it is strange that this small part of the population is passing away at the age of 27, but I don’t think people are having their lives end just because their 26th year is up. There are some very tragic cases, and some very real cover-ups that have gone on with many of these people and their deaths. Maybe that is why people are fixated on the curse of the 27 club.  In the end, none of us are safe from the same fate, it only matters what we do with the time we have been given. They have been remembered for their contribution to the world of music. What will you be remembered for?

Way out Wednesday: What is the Deal with Katy Perry?

Hello Underdogs! Lately, I have been reading and seeing some very strange and way out there theories about Katy Perry.Image result for katy perry non copyrighted photos Katy Perry is an American singer who has several number one hits such as, “I Kissed a Girl,” and “Dark Horse.” She is 32 years old, and has been making albums and touring all throughout the 2000’s. Her music is very pop, and her style has changed rapidly throughout the years. For some reason, people are now focusing on some very weird theories about her. However, her recent strange behavior hasn’t been helping her out much. I am pretty taken aback by how out there some of these are, because some don’t make a lick of sense. Let’s take a look at how Katy Perry went from Pop Star, to a person who is actually a dead girl.

  1. Katy Perry is JonBent Ramsy:Image result for katy perry conspiracy theories Um, what? For those of you who are not familiar with JonBent Ramsy, she was a 6 year old, American girl who was killed 20 years ago. The whole case surrounding Jon Bent is filled with controversy. The investigation was botched, and her killer has still never been found. Her case became very big because she was a child pageant star, and both her parents, and even her brother were suspects in her kidnapping and murder. Everything that happened with her case was strange, and it was lie on top of lie. We will probably never know the truth of what happened to this poor girl. Unless you believe that this whole thing was staged and Katy Perry is really JonBent Ramsy!

The story that people came up with is that JonBent’s family were involved with some sort of ritual for either the Masons, or the Illuminati. Her Mom and Dad had to take part in this sacrificial ritual to kill their daughter,or there would be Hell to pay for the whole family! Instead of risking the life of their daughter, they staged an impossible kidnapping and murder so JonBent could live in the shadows, only to emerge later on as an adult as Katy Perry! Even though Katy Perry would have been 6 years older than JonBent at the time of her death, people seem to think that these 2 girls were one in the same! Apparently, Katy Perry and JonBent’s parents look similar. However, JonBent’s Mom died several years ago, while Katy Perry’s Mom is still alive and well today. Why people think this is a viable theory is beyond me! They don’t look alike, and nothing adds up. You can argue that Katy Perry’s records have been faked, but it all just seems to crazy to be anywhere near real.

2. Katy Perry is a robot:Image result for Microsoft Free Clip Art robot There is no Katy, only robots! At least that is what some people are saying. Once upon a time, there was a pop star named Katy Perry. She was loved and adored by millions of fans who were fooled by the Illuminati that created a perfect robot to spread their evil agenda! Or, Katy Perry was created for Science to see how far that they could go with realistic robotics! This explains why Katy Perry sometimes seems like she is on drugs, confused, or spaced out. She recently took a spill while she was on stage performing. Katy said something like she wasn’t feeling well and become incoherent. This was just the robot malfunctioning and it needed to be rebooted or worked on. Either way, a robot Katy Perry could be the ultimate test in robots to see how the public reacts. What better way to introduce a robot to the world than a fun, loving pop star?

Image result for free clip art pyramid   3. Katy Perry and Taylor Swift are working together to become the newest heads of a cult: Whatever kind of cult that you would like to call it, Katy Perry and Taylor Swift are going to be the next big thing! Most likely, people are referring to the Illuminati since that seems to always be the buzz word. The rumor is that when Taylor Swift was interrupted by Kayne West during the MTV Video Music Awards, that was her start into the climb to be the head of the Illuminati! She had to be publicly shamed in order to get sympathy so people would be more willing to listen to what she says. As far as Katy Perry, currently, she has been acting pretty odd lately. Katy  mentions that she would love to be part of the Illuminati in several interviews. Her music videos and her live performances also seem to be filled with symbolism and messages. They say Katy is heading for a break down, which would mean that she might be publicly humiliated. Then, she will gain sympathy and people will be more willing to hear her message. This means that Katy is a bit behind Taylor, but both will soon be the highest ranking officials of a strange organization, or a strange cult.

Those are just a few of the rumors going around about Katy Perry. I am fairly confident that Katy Perry is not JonBent Ramsy. As far as the other two theories, who knows? If we already have such advance robots in this world, then we need to be more concerned with a Sky Net situation. Is Katy trying to become a head of a cult? She could be, but it is just as laughable to think that any of this is true. Katy has been acting strange lately. She has appeared to be confused, or out of it while doing interviews. She could be nervous, sick, or she could be on drugs. But, it all could be a show for a deeper, more sinister reason. I will continue to have fun with her music, but sort of be worried about the path she seems to be going towards. Maybe, Katy Perry just needs a long vacation!
