It remains to be seen what, if any, new angle or information will be added to the story of <a href=”/artist/431886/2pac/chart”>Tupac Shakur</a>’s mysterious death when his Snapped: Notorious documentary airs next Sunday night (Sept. 10) — but signs are pointing to a suggestion that the rapper knew his killer.
In the show’s trailer, released by Oxygen, Tupac’s former girlfriend Yolanda “Yo-Yo” Whitaker is shown tearfully saying that she had asked ‘Pac if he knew who shot him.
And, although <a href=”http://www.tmz.com/2017/09/03/tupac-shakur-killed-snapped-notorious-trailer/” target=”_blank”>TMZ</a> writes, “The trailer … paints a vivid picture of Pac’s last breaths on his deathbed in a Las Vegas hospital … his finger shot off and nodding that he knew who did this to him” — that scene is absent from the clip. Watch for yourself below.
The two-hour episode will recount the night the rapper was fatally shot in Las Vegas in 1996, and is reported to include interviews with Danny Boy and Yo-Yo, DJ Mister Cee, Pac’s first manager Leila Steinberg, music journalist Toure and other close friends and fellow MCs.
The Oxygen special will arrive two weeks before Fox’s Sept. 24 Tupac doc hosted by Ice-T and Soledad O’Brien, called <a href=”/articles/news/television/7942033/ice-t-and-soledad-obrien-host-fox-special-tupac-biggie”>Who Shot Biggie & Tupac?</a>, which will also detail the murder of <a href=”/artist/418733/notorious-big/chart”>Notorious B.I.G.</a>.
