Comedian Jack Thriller appeared on Hot 107.9 Atlanta speaking about his interview with Tupac’s former bodyguard, Frank Alexander.
Jack Thriller was the first comedian to sign to 50 Cent’s G-Unit label, becoming a pioneer of the podcast scene. Known as the King of Pop Comedy, Jack fronted the ThisIs50 media platform, bringing the latest in urban news.
In early 2013, the Atlanta native interviewed Tupac’s former bodyguard and friend, Frank Alexander. Unfortunately, this interview would be ‘Big Frank’s’ last.
Two weeks later, frank died as a result of a gunshot wound to his head. After investigation, confirmation that the 54-year-old former US Marine Corp cause of death was suicide.
Answering all of Jack Thriller’s questions, Frank spoke openly about his life, Death Row and protecting Tupac Shakur. He also talks about his determination in solving the murder of Tupac, providing precise information through his documentaries. Going down memory lane with Frank, Jack describes it as spooky, weird and eerie.
What became more eerie for Jack Thriller is what would happen after Frank Alexander’s passing. Not know the exact reason for it, but Thriller would receive random calls from just about everybody. “All kind of people was hitting me up randomly.”
Even those connected to Tupac Shakur, including Pac’s mother Afeni Shakur. Many were trying to connect the dots, wondering if the interview conducted by Thriller with Frank Alexander played any role in Frank’s death two weeks later.
“It was random people from Tupac’s camp calling me. Even his mama had called, and wanted to know what kind of stuff Frank had done told me off camera, conspiracy theory wise,” said Jack Thriller.
