Filmmaker Rick Boss is looking to let the world decide if Tupac is alive, with his new movie “2Pac The Great Escape”. The film will explore the possibility of Tupac Shakur escaping and faking his death on September 13, 1996.
This will be the very first time a movie will show an alternative ending for the life of Tupac Shakur. “This movie is about Tupac actually escaping from University Medical Center here in Vegas and relocating to New Mexico. Getting protection from the Navajo tribe,” Boss tells KTNV of Las Vegas.
According to Rick Boss, Tupac was informed of a planned hit on his life when he arrived to Las Vegas for a Tyson fight. Boss believes Tupac and Suge Knight planned the whole thing, and even had a Tupac look alike sit right next to Suge Knight before being shot on the Vegas strip.
“When certain FBI agencies are looking for you, they are going to block the airport. So you can’t travel out so the best way to escape is through helicopter, private helicopter to another state,” explains Boss.
Rick Boss goes on to further explain his theory, stating that FBI agents can’t go onto tribal land without the tribal council’s permission. It is for this reason Boss believes Navajo land in New Mexico make sense.
With this theory, it would also make perfect sense as to why Tupac’s posthumous music video “I Wonder If Heaven Got A Ghetto” starts off in New Mexico. In the video, a helicopter is seen flying over Rukahs (which spells Shakur backwards), New Mexico. The video is dated September 14, 1996, a day after Tupac was announced dead.
After the helicopter lands in New Mexico, it is believed that Tupac Shakur is the one exiting the helicopter. Although he is not shown throughout the video, various moments are instilled to make you believe that indeed it is Tupac Shakur.
At one point in the music video, the individual makes his way into a bar, the bartender is heard saying, “Hey Pac, how’s it going?”
Many will question this theory, but for Rick Boss he has reasons to believe. “You can write a fiction. You can write a fiction story but this is not a fiction. This is facts through certain people I know,” said Boss.
Rick Boss father knew Tupac’s mother Afeni Shakur, as the two were involved in the Black Panther Party. But, how does the Shakur family feel about the movie? “Let’s just say Mr. Shakur – the family is aware of the movie and they’re okay with the title so that should tell you more or less what’s going on,” said Boss.
The film already has someone set to portray Tupac. Richard Garcia, a Tupac tribute artist, will take the responsibility of playing the Hip Hop icon. Garcia who spoke to O4L Online says it was “nothing but love” whenever he was around the Shakur family.
“Every time I met Tupac’s family members it was magical and spiritual on a degree that I can’t explain. I felt comfortable and nothing but love when I interact with each and of them. Just good down to Earth, positive, loving vibes. I was fortunate enough to share a moment with my extended family,” Garcia tells Andrew Moffatt of O4L Online.
