A former gang leader implicated in the 1996 murder of rapper Tupac has been arrested, sparking renewed interest in the case. The suspect, who published his memoirs and gave interviews explaining his role, was known to the police. The documentary “Murder Rap” released in 2015 featured audio of the suspect’s confession, but it couldn’t be used as evidence. However, in 2018, the suspect agreed to be interviewed for the “Death Row Chronicles” series on BET, which led to the reopening of the case. Tupac’s murder is believed to be linked to the East Coast-West Coast rivalry in the music industry.
