Hello, I’m new here but not to the site smile

I found this video online the other day supposedly of Tupac Shakur late last year hanging out with the Outlawz on the parking lot of a studio. What do you think? Good hoax with a look-alike or the real thing?

This looks to be carefully staged to me.  Certainly the folks being videoed played well to the camera.  I would not hold much stock on this being what it’s trying to suggest.

I’m not knowledgeable of the rap scene enough to recognize the others around ‘him’ but I am leaning toward it being a hoax too. Seems too sensational (but it would be!) The guy really does look like 2pac though. That’s the only thing that’s leaving a question mark in my head.

I thought it was too fuzzy to tell if it was him or not.  Plus - the man that flashed his gang sign new the camera was there.  He looked right at it…then turned around, and flashed his sh…sign.  I almost went blind, dawg.

If it was him - this could have been taken at any time in the past, and the intro filmed later.

Yes, but look at the cars…they ain’t no 96’ models.  I’m a portraitist too, and even though the image appears fuzzy, there is a moment when the guy turns toward the camera and whoever it is has got a very similar face.

Other celebrities have been ‘sited’ by tape and film as well after purported demise:  Elvis Presley (constantly), President Kennedy, and a slew of others.  I wonder how many others might be listed?  Tribute bands often pride themselves in their ability to not only sound like, act like, but also look like (especially if you don’t look too closely) the member or members of the original.

A year ago or so I proposed an Elvis Sighting Report Page for this website. We could make one for other deceased celebitries as well. Interface it with a Google earth map, and there you go.

I’ll have to check it out later - I can’t watch while I’m at work.  I didn’t even think of checking out the vehicles.  I was staring too hard at “Tupac”.

So what if it is?  Why would that be a scary thing?

And we’ve already seen the video - it’s the same link already provided.

Scary? I take it you’re not a fan of rap.

Neither am I but I’m not scared of Tupac. Got my man Biggie behind me in case of gangland ruckus.

And I’ve seen Elvis. Here. There’s a fellow who walks around acting like Elvis, doing the moves, talking like him, hair style perfectly, with a black leather jacket and jewelled shades.

You’ve not lived until you’ve seen Glasgow Elvis buying a bridie out of Gregg’s Bakers and saying “Thank you vry much…”

Hmm.. I’ll trade you. We’ve just got a Foul Ol’ Ron impersonator, here. No joke. Has the muttering and stench down pat. He even gets handouts from local places to ‘go stand someplace else’.
