On September 7, 1996, American rapper Tupac Shakur was wounded in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas. Someone in a Cadillac car drove up to his car and shot him four times. He died in a hospital on September 13. The public never found out who killed him.[1]

Shakur's friend from Death Row Records, Marion "Suge" Knight, was in the car with Shakur, but survived the shooting.[1]

In 2002, reporter Chuck Phillips wrote in the Los Angeles Times that another rapper called Biggie Smalls (The Notorious B.I.G.) could have paid members of the Crips street gang to kill Shakur and that he could have given them the gun.[1]
