When the company behind the much-talked-about Tupac hologram refused to reveal how they made the rap icon say the word "Coachella," a festival created years after his apparent death in 1996, most people assumed they were protecting a trade secret. But what if they were keeping something much bigger under wraps? In a radio interview yesterday morning (April 20), hip-hop mogul and former 'Pac associate Suge Knight made a shocking insinuation: Tupac is still alive.

"Maybe the question is ... Pac's not really dead ... Pac's somewhere else," Knight told 93.5 KDay in Los Angeles, TMZ reports.

"Nobody seen Tupac dead," he added, which is curious, since he was driving the car during the Las Vegas drive-by that purportedly ended the rhymer's life.

"The person who supposedly cremated Tupac ... this guy got about 3 million dollars .. personally from me ... cash ... and next thing I know I never heard from the guy or seen him again ... he retired and left," Knight said.

Conspiracy theorists, have at it!
