Tupac; Facts and Rumors

The information compiled below is to help you sift thru all the mis-truths floating the net about Tupac Shakur.

It is reported that Tupac had less than $100,000.00 in the bank at his death. Afeni spoke on Tupac's assets on MTV news:

MTV NEWS: It seems that not even a hail of bullets can slow the career of the late Tupac Shakur. He's getting his best reviews as an actor for his performance in the new movie "Gridlock'd." And the soundtrack from the film, on which Tupac also appears, along with his pal Snoop Dogg, debuts at number one on Monday's new "Billboard" chart. Even in death, the man is cleaning up, or so you might think. His mother, former Black Panther Afeni Shakur, certainly thought so, until she started looking for her son's actual assets. Here's what she said on ABC's "Prime Time Live" on Wednesday.

AFENI SHAKUR: “I discovered he had next to zero, next to nothing. I discovered that the home that he had thought that he had just bought, was not his. I discovered that the Rolls Royce that he was so proud of and that he loved so much, was not his. And since they were not his, I don't want any parts of them“.

Tupac is reported to have ties to the bloods set. With his association with Suge` he was introduced and claimed the set of Bloods known as the MOB PIRU. All the speculation because of the 'colors' that Tupac wore, has many fans saying he was a crip or this or that. I have heard from those who knew him and who were there at that time that Tupac indeed claimed MOB.

FBI Probed Possible Extortion Of Eazy-E and Tupac Shakur, Bureau Memos Say

FBI Probed Possible Extortion Of Eazy-E, Bureau Memos Say

Originally Published by MTVi's September 11, 2000

Jewish Defense League offered security to Eazy-E when Suge Knight allegedly threatened him, record official says.

Staff Writer Jahna Berry reports:

The FBI mounted a two-and-a-half-year investigation to determine whether associates of the Jewish Defense League tried to extort money from deceased N.W.A rapper Eazy-E and slain rapper Tupac Shakur by making telephone death threats, according to documents recently released by the government agency.

The probe, which extended from Oct. 17, 1996, until May 18, 1999, was closed after investigators failed to substantiate the allegations, according to document excerpts, which are posted on www.thesmokinggun.com's "Archive" section.

Two unnamed informants told the FBI that "Eric Wright, also known as Eazy-E, who owns Ruthless Records ... was a victim of this extortion scheme prior to dying from AIDS." Also targeted was Shakur, "prior to his recent murder in Las Vegas," according to a heavily blacked out Jan. 3, 1997, FBI memo.

Groundbreaking gangsta rap group N.W.A, which included Dr. Dre, Ice Cube and M.C. Ren, along with Eazy-E, released Straight Outta Compton in 1988. The album's title track (RealAudio excerpt) became a signature song for the group. Eazy-E, who founded Ruthless Records, died in 1995. Shakur, another West Coast rapper who garnered national acclaim with his 1992 debut, 2pacalypse Now, was gunned down in a 1996 Las Vegas shooting.

The FBI files outraged a spokesperson for the Jewish Defense League, as well as a former Ruthless Records executive. They said the JDL offered Eazy-E protection in the early 1990s, after Death Row Records co-founder Suge Knight allegedly threatened the rapper. A spokesperson for Interscope, Shakur's label, who refused to be identified, declined to comment. Neither David Kenner, Knight's attorney, nor representatives for Ruthless Records could be reached for comment.

The FBI letters blacked out the names of the suspects and many other details of the investigation. However, the memos provide a sketchy picture of a probe to uncover a group that allegedly worked for the JDL and possibly targeted several unnamed rappers. For example, the Jan. 3 memo said Eazy-E paid a security consultant $1,000 per week as a result of death threats. The initial FBI inquiry was upgraded to a "Full Field Investigation" in 1997, but the case was closed in May 1999.

The case was "extensively investigated," according to a May 18, 1999, memo, but the extortion allegation against the unnamed suspects was "not substantiated," the memo stated. JDL spokesperson Irv Rubin, who had not read the documents, and who was unaware of the investigation, expressed amazement at the allegations. "There was nothing but a close, tight relationship" between Eazy-E and the League, Rubin said.

The Defense League offered to provide bodyguards to Eazy-E when Knight allegedly threatened him in the early 1990s, said Mike Klein, former director of business affairs at Ruthless Records. At the time, Knight and Eazy-E were involved in a legal dispute over the work Dr. Dre had done at Ruthless, Klein said. Knight is in prison for violating probation in connection with a 1992 attack on two aspiring rappers; he is scheduled to be released in May.

FBI spokesperson Linda Colton confirmed that the agency released the 170-page file to thesmokinggun.com in response to the site's written Freedom of Information Act request but declined to comment on the investigation. The 1975 Freedom of Information Act legislation gave the public broader access to certain government documents and FBI investigation files. Eazy-E/Tupac Shakur documents are available to the public via written requests because the two rappers are deceased, Colton said.

Lawyers for JDL leader want FBI files on alleged extortion scheme

LOS ANGELES - Attorneys for jailed Jewish Defense League leader Irv Rubin have asked a judge to order federal prosecutors to turn over records concerning an FBI investigation into whether the group tried to extort money from rap stars Tupac Shakur and Eazy-E.

In papers filed this week in U.S. District Court, Rubin's lawyers called the FBI probe another example of the government's bias against their client, who is charged along with associate Earl Krugel of plotting to bomb a mosque and the office of Arab American U.S. Rep. Darrell E. Issa, R-Calif.

The extortion allegations first surfaced in September 1996 when an FBI agent was interviewing a confidential informant about the 1985 murder of Alex Odeh, director of the Arab American Anti-Discrimination Committee's West Coast office in Santa Ana, the Los Angeles Times reported Saturday.

The informant outlined the scheme, saying the JDL planned to make death threats against Shakur and Eazy-E, whose real name is Eric Wright, and then contact the rappers, offering them protection, according to the Times, who cited documents obtained under the Freedom of Information Act.

Another informant corroborated the allegations and named the JDL as the group involved, the Times said. The FBI probe ended in 1999 after the allegations could not be substantiated.

Defense attorney Peter Morris said Friday he was unaware whether Rubin had performed security work for Shakur, who was killed in a 1996 shooting in Las Vegas, or Wright, who died of AIDS-related complications in 1995. Krugel's lawyer, Mark Werksman, said his client, a dental hygienist, has had nothing to do with anyone in the rap industry.

Last month, Rubin's attorneys filed a similar motion involving the Odeh investigation, saying the FBI was "out to get" Rubin because it could not implicate him in the murder. Rubin, who has publicly denied any involvement, was called to testify before a federal grand jury investigating Odeh's slaying, which remains unsolved.

Krugel, 59, and Rubin, 56, were arrested Dec. 11 after an FBI informant delivered an explosive powder that authorities believed was the last component in making pipe bombs.

Both men face sentences of at least 40 years in prison if convicted.

Krugel's defense is that he was illegally entrapped by a former league member turned government informer. Prosecutors are expected to present evidence that Krugel was involved in at least two previous bombing plots.

JDL Conspiracy Against Tupac Resurfaces Lawyers for Jewish Defense League leader want FBI files on alleged scheme to extort rap stars

LOS ANGELES - In a bizarre twist to the case of a right-wing Jewish leader accused of trying to blow up Muslim-related sites, defense attorneys have requested records of an FBI (news - web sites) probe into whether the suspect's group tried to shake down rap stars Tupac Shakur and Eazy-E.

Jewish Defense League leader Irv Rubin is being held without bail along with group member Earl Krugel on charges of plotting to blow up a mosque and the office of an Arab American congressman. They have pleaded innocent.

In papers filed this week in U.S. District Court, Rubin's lawyers asked a judge to order prosecutors to hand over records of the FBI probe, claiming it provides evidence of government bias against the league.

An informant outlined the alleged extortion scheme during FBI interviews in 1996 about the murder of a figure in the Arab American Anti-Discrimination Committee, the Los Angeles Times reported Saturday.

The informant said the JDL planned to make death threats against Shakur and Eazy-E, then offer them protection for a fee, the Times said, citing documents obtained under the Freedom of Information Act.

The FBI probe ended in 1999 after the claims could not be substantiated, according to the newspaper.

Defense attorney Peter Morris said Friday he did not know if Rubin had performed security work for Shakur, who was killed in a 1996 shooting in Las Vegas, or Eazy-E, who died of AIDS (news - web sites)-related complications in 1995.
