TMZ caught up with Death Row Records’ Suge Knight yesterday evening as the label owner was exiting 1Oak. Knight opened with a profanity laced rant about the ways he feels disrespected right now, as well as his continuing issues with Puff Daddy, but it’s the bomb he dropped regarding his most famous signee that is making headlines today.

Answering claims that he had something to do with Pac’s death, Suge responded, “Everybody know off the top, I ain’t the nigga killed Tupac. I’m the nigga …

THE FUTURE IS CLEAR: Watch “Hologram Feist” Perform In Canada

When fallen legend Tupac Shakur was brought back to life as a dancing, rapping hologram at Coachella last year people were everything from shocked to amazed. The progress of projection technology has made the recreation of physical beings stunningly realistic, especially from a distance, but following the events at Coachella most the hype for the technology seemed to die down. That is, until now.

Last night, indie pop songstress Feist performed three simultaneous shows in various cities across the great nation of Canada. No, she didn’t split herself into three smaller Feists who then performed separate sets before rejoining as …

Tupac Sex Tape Surfaces, Owner Plans To Release It

TMZ is reporting this morning that not only has a sex tape featuring late (great) rapper Tupac Shakur surfaced, but that they’ve actually seen the footage.

According to the popular gossip site, the tap features Tupac receiving oral sex at house party WHILE rapping, smoking weed, and dancing AT THE SAME TIME.
