No, the other Tupac.
Ever since his still-unsolved murder in 1996, like Elvis, a number of people have claimed that Tupac Shakur is alive and in hiding. Maybe that's what Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear was thinking when he got wind that 'Pac had applied for unemployment benefits in the Bluegrass state in light of the devastating impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on the American economy.
On Monday, Beshear said in press conference that someone had used the late rapper's name to get benefits, calling that person one of the "bad apples" that was using a fake name to fleece the state, according to the Lexington Herald-Leader. “We had somebody apply for unemployment for Tupac Shakur here in Kentucky,” Beshear said during the Monday presser. “And that person may have thought they were being funny, they probably did. Except for the fact that because of them, we had to go through so many other claims.”
