A few years ago, there was an article on CNN.com about Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake dying in a car-crash... I guess that was from some sort of hacker. Probably the same dealio this time around.

...wouldn't mind getting some new music from Tupac, though.

I'm not sure if this was intended to be a joke, but every year he continues to come out with more music despite his death. About whether Pac still lives, well, this has been going on for the past 10 years.

About fake reports, do you guys remember when the article about Portis getting injured came out??? Everyone here was in a panic, I picked up Rock Cartwright in a deep league. :-b

Yeah, that was a busy day here. :-o

Tupac is pumping gas with Elvis in California...they have their own franchise and everything - it's called Hoaxaco.

Everybody knows that. ;-)

when this first happened theer were rumors he faked his death and was going to stay hidden in some foriegn place like mexico for 7 years until he was pronounced officially dead (something about taxes :-? ...can anyone clear this thing up for me?) i bought into at first...since he put out like 3 movies and 10cds after his death...but i dont believe it anymore. too bad..he was a talented artist.

here is a link to some info on him... it goes a little into detail about the number 7 that kept coming up:
http://rap.about.com/library/weekly/aatupacconspiracytheories090902.htm

i feel 2pac was very overrated as to his musical talent due to his abrupt and untimely "death"...

not to take anything away from him but he was by far not the deepest or most talented rapper of his time or any other...

for as many songs he had about his plight or about god, there were an equal amount about killing people, drugs, and women...

i am a rap fan and i recognize that the drugs and violence are what rap is about but people that say he was the greatest rapper who ever lived and that his death was the greatest tragedy for mankind since... jesus, are flat out wrong...

the east-west rivalry that formed mainly between him and biggie was the product of overactive imaginations in the record producing business. this "rivalry" that supposedly lead to his death was made up and the sucess of his rap songs were so much higher after his death which caused him to be one of the most overhyped rappers in history...

granted he was a fighter who came back from being shot and stabbed multiple times as well in growing up in one of the hardest placed in America. but to say he was a martyr is foolish...

Boy do I feel like a dumbass - mental lapse on my part. Hell, I've got one of his posthumous CDs on my computer. I hate being stupid...

I'm kinda getting sick of all this new Tupac music. I am a pretty hardcore rap fan, its just about all I listen to, and I agree that Pac is overrated. He has skills, and tons of great songs, but his product is diluted b/c he has so much music out there.

Biggie Smalls is the illest.

Actually, I dont think it was ever on CNN itself... I saw this a while back but people just copied the CNN layout and put up a story...
