Prisoner Allegedly Confesses to Involvement in Tupac Shooting

New York City police are investigating a statement released by allegedly written by an inmate revealing his involvement in the robbery and shooting of the late Tupac Shakur.

According to the rap blog, a New York prisoner named Dexter Isaac is claiming that he was hired by Czar Entertainment CEO James Rosemond in 1994 to rob Shakur’s Manhattan Quad Studio. Shakur was shot five times during the infamous robbery, but the rapper survived and accused Sean “Diddy” Combs and Notorious B.I.G. of being involved. The incident began a feud between West Coast and East Coast rappers that led to the eventual deaths of Tupac and Biggie. Their murders remain unsolved.

James Rosmond, who also manages rapper The Game, is apparently on the run due to an arrest warrant issued for his alleged cocaine distribution operation. According to Billboard, the NYPD will seek an interview with Isaac if they find that he did indeed release the statement.
