Monstaville Book II. Chapter 19


Some say they expect Illuminati take my body to sleep
Niggas at the party with they shotties
Just as rowdy as me
Before I flee computer chips
I gotta deal wit brothas flippin
I don't see no devils bleedin'
Only black blood drippin
We can change
Whatcha now say?
I'm watchin niggaz work their lives out without pay (huh)
Whatever it takes to switch places wit the bustas on top
I'm bustin' shots make the world stop
They don't give a fuck about us

- Tupac Shakur (from ‘They Don't Give A F*** About Us,’ on the posthumous album Better Dayz, 2002; written by E.D.I., Yafeu Fula, Katari Cox, Johnny Jackson, Napoleon, Tupac Shakur, Mutah Beale, Malcolm Greenidge, Kastro and Young Noble).

Black to the Future VI: Thug Life

“…so I am going to say that I’m a thug. That’s because I came from the gutter. And I’m still here! I’m not saying I’m a thug cuz I want to rob you and rape people and things. No, I’m not angry at them. I’m angry at the System.” - Tupac Shakur.
As I have said, I generally get on really well with black people but, then, I guess I have tended to meet those with whom I have some affinity while there is usually a kind of repelling forcefield between myself and those who are noisier and more aggressive, particularly in the case of women. That magnetic barrier was evidently weak or something for a few years; hence these skirmishes. Black people were a very positive voice in the 60s revolution and they continued to demonstrate their innate strength and joy through music during the 70s, 80s and 90s. They are, it could be said, masters of remaining positive amidst adverse conditions. As such, they have a positive energy and message to share with humanity which one may detect simply in the way that many move. They got the rhythm – no doubt about it. I certainly find much black music uplifting and it is my favourite music to dance to. So I can see why the Elite decided that such positive expression had to be silenced. Through their puppet governments in the States they have done everything they could to break the spirit of the black and indigenous communities and to suppress or remove the wise leaders among them.

We’ve all got to be on the same team now, uniting in truth against our common enemy who is out to enslave us all! I say ‘enemy’ but the ultimate truth, of course, is that we are all One. OK, so we may have sunk to the bottom in this experience, our dream in this holographic Matrix. But the gunk weighing us down and cutting us from the realms of Light is coming to the surface and being released at this time of planetary Ascension.

The U.S. Government (as the primary promotion team for the Elite) has thus far maintained a policy of keeping Native Americans on reservations and black people in ghettos and both in conditions of poverty, with low self-esteem and fighting with each other. There must be so much anger and frustration in these communities, so much despair and desperation. We are talking about whole racial communities here being kept down by the Zionist Elite in the same way that they controlled Jewish people in ghettos and the masses in Communist countries. They are the enemy of all decent human beings everywhere. Unity between us through love and awareness is the only way forward. I admire the Black Liberation movement in the United States where it combines intelligence and action. Despite the bad press and government condemnation, I have great respect for Minister Louis Farrakhan and Professor Tony Martin. I have not heard Farrakhan’s earlier talks so I do not know if he used more inflammatory language in the past. He says he simply expressed himself more passionately and had to learn to tone it down because it gave the wrong impression to white people even though his own people understood him. I believe that the Nation of Islam in America is, now, at any rate, dedicated to truth and that places us on the same team. Absolutely on the same team – providing they are not closet black supremacists because all supremacists are on the same side too (even though they may be at war with each other) since they play into the hands of the Elite. I have seen only good teachings and good people in attendance and I feel certain they understand that we have all been tricked, exploited and oppressed to some degree by a tiny minority.

The situation in America is dire for Native Americans and the ‘Negro’ population because they are regarded as a threat by the System and the authorities want to keep them down, oppressed, in bondage. The Elite wants to enslave the whole human race but, for now, they employ subtle methods of control over the masses whilst targeting those whom they view to be the greatest threat (and use the media and justice system to cover up their crimes); that is, leaders of a resistance movement in the black population right on their doorstep in the U.S. Consequently, there is more black-on-black violence (although it has eased up somewhat now) and more blacks in prison.

I am not getting into racial arguments. A white American lady notes that ‘blacks’ are uneducated even though they had the same schooling and that they blame whites for slavery; that is, all white people. “I didn’t learn prejudice. I earned prejudice,” she quotes. No mention of the fact that black people were not permitted to attend schools until the 60s so it is a relatively new phenomenon for them. In the States, they have been severely oppressed in the past. Now, they are kept in conflict with each other and the rest of society in a ripple effect affecting the whole of Western culture through the influence on youths, stirring up violent attitudes.

“I’m very glad that we can bring clarification. We can bring union and we can actually sort out things, you know? People don’t need to start bickering [with] each other. They need to find clarity and really focus on who is our enemy. We shouldn’t be arguing with each other. We should just focus on our enemy.” – Leo Zagami (in an interview with Phil, the admin from Leo’s website forum, 2008).

The Elite have assassinated Martin Luther King, Malcom X, members of the Black Panthers, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Marley and several rappers (the Indigo leaders who incarnated where a difference really needs to be made, in other words). Alex Constantine, author of The Covert War Against Rock (2000) has written an informative article titled ‘The CIA & The Death of Bob Marley’ which is available to read online. It originally appeared in the February 2002 issue of High Times Magazine. [Here is one link to the article:].

Jimi Hendrix was also becoming more politically active. In his final interview, Hendrix told NME’s Keith Allston that he was honoured that the Black Panthers had invited him to play for them but, he said, they had not gotten around to it yet. Seven days later, on 18 September 1970, he was found dead in Notting Hill, London. Hendrix was an insomniac who took sleeping pills and had also been mixing lager and wine [which he apparently had never drunk before] whilst out clubbing the previous evening because he had to be up early the next day. His death is shrouded in mystery but it is plausible that either water or red wine was forced down his throat causing him to drown.

“’Someone apparently poured red wine down Jimi’s throat to intentionally cause asphyxiation after first causing barbiturate intoxication,’ Dr. Bannister concluded. ‘Without the ability to cough he was easily drowned.’ Waterboarding and forced ingestion were commonly used by MI6 and other intelligence agents during the Cold War. It was a preferred interrogation or assassination technique since it left no marks on the body. Almost no alcohol was found in Hendrix’s blood. Moreover, friends stated that he didn’t drink red wine…Within hours of Jimi’s death, all his hotel rooms and crash pads in London as well as New York were turned over: clothes, instruments, writings, drugs – everything vanished. An investigation was not launched until 23 years later when all evidence was long gone.” – David Comfort (‘Who Murdered Jimi Hendrix?’ 15 September 2010,

'Tappy,’ a former road manager who worked for Hendrix’s dodgy UK manager, Michael Jeffery, wrote in his memoir Rock Roadie (2009) that in the early hours of the morning, a gang entered the hotel room where the musician was staying with his girlfriend, Monika Dannemann, and forced sleeping pills and wine down his throat until he drowned. Sources such as Jimi’s US manager Bob Levine claim that Jeffery could not possibly have been involved in his death. According to David Comfort, however, Tappy (James Wright) states that Jeffery confessed to the murder in 1971, saying that he ‘had no choice.’ Hendrix had just signed with another manager and he had too much to lose and he could not allow evidence of his own fraudulent activities to come to light. Then again it was probably the CIA who had too much to lose and they decided to assassinate him before he wriggled out from under their control since Hendrix clearly suspected something was going on. That same year, Jimi Hendrix had also formed the Band of Gypsys with Billy Cox on Bass and Buddy Miles on Drums: that is, an all-black band. “Michael Jeffery reportedly perished in a plane crash over France in 1973. But his remains were never found. Eric Burdon, Noel Redding, and others believe he may have checked luggage but slipped away during the boarding process. Jeffery was due in London court the very next day to defend himself in several huge lawsuits relating to his embezzlement, money laundering, and fraud.” (ibid. One commenter adds: “The reason it wasn’t investigated at the time is because Jimi Hendrix’s death was a political assassination. British tabloids did CIA’s COINTELPRO dirty work by announcing Jimi had died from a heroin overdose even though the coroner said there was ZERO trace of heroin in his system or any traces of heroin use on his body.” Another writes: “I openly suspect Michael Jeffery was recruited straight out of MI5 in order to participate in the British branch of this programme. He ripped-off the Animals, before he ever heard of Hendrix, through the same banks. I suspect Jeffery was the go-between for this programme and was tapping unsuspecting rock acts as a funding source for this CIA black ops programme. That explains why Jeffery had no problem taking those acts over from the mob.” So, it is likely that Jeffery ended up on a CIA protection programme or continued working for them in yet another capacity). [See also Chapter Seven from the book The Covert War Against Rock by Alex Constantine, published by Feral House, 2000: ‘I Don't Live Today: The Jimi Hendrix Political Harassment, Kidnap and Murder Experience.’ Hopefully, this link still works:].

“There were many people who were believed to benefit from Hendrix's removal. The COINTELPRO or Counter Intelligence Program designed by the FBI was aimed at eliminating subversive behaviour within the country. Hendrix appearance at ‘subversive’ benefits resulted in the FBI opening a dossier on him, and his ability to motivate masses were seen by COINTELPRO as less than innocuous. Hendrix connection to manager Mike Jeffery only furthered his surveillance by the FBI. Jeffery had on numerous occasions alluded to being connected to underground organizations. He was in the process of building a recording studio in a part of New York which was primarily mob controlled. In addition, Cynthia McKinney, US House Representative and Green Party nominee for President of the United States in 2008, has pinned Hendrix's murder on a government plot to eradicate such leaders. Moreover, Hendrix had publicly called upon the Black Panther party to go to Washington, DC and shoot the place up…Friends state that in Hendrix's final days, he became increasingly more paranoid. Did Hendrix have a feeling that his end was coming soon?” (‘The Jimi Hendrix Murder Conspiracy, Was Jimi Hendrix Murdered?’

Another Jimmy founded the People’s Temple in 1955 as an ‘inter-racial mission for the sick, homeless and jobless.’ Twenty years later, it had expanded and established other branches in the United States. Accusations of illegal activities prompted Jim Jones to lease 4,000 acres of jungle in Guyana where he and some members established an agricultural cooperative called Jonestown. Jones was a well-educated Christian who had been ordained as a mainline pastor and preached “human freedom, equality, and love, which required helping the least and the lowliest of society's members.” ( The story goes that all 900 members of the People’s Temple ended committed suicide after a series of events. Native American poet and political activist John Trudell, however, believes that Jonestown was mass murder: “and Jimmy Jones didn’t do it because I think it was an experiment in terror to attack the cults and the idea of people collectively pooling their resources. Because, for things like Jonestown, or the people’s Temple…and various other organisations…they were people organisations. And the people corporations were banding together and sharing their resources and they were starting to create some economic power. And, in the case of the People’s Temple, which, basically, was black though - so that’s what made it the target, alright - but in the case of the People’s Temple where they were also creating an economic base and assuming political power because they helped the mayor of San Francisco get into office. It was their vote that put him in. So, now, if this thing went on unchecked, you know, it would be very dangerous…But Jones was…a little nuts, you know…and they needed to put someone close to Jones…because they always said they didn’t know what he was up to, you know. But, by that point, I had been a militant for 8 or 9 or 10 years, you now. And, the reality is, you know, if they think you’re a threat, they always spy on you. See, it’s too bizarre, it’s too much, to say, ‘Oh, we didn’t know that he was going to take 900 people down and…get them all to kill themselves. And the other thing is, that’s an obvious contradiction to me – I don’t mean to be light – but if I’m at the end of the line, and I’m watching everyone take the [poison] right in front of me, I’m going to get out of the line man. You know what I’m saying? Just a natural human instinct…but because they were black, everyone says, ‘Oh, yeah, OK, they’ll all stand in line and drink the stuff. That makes sense to us.’ I call that an institutionalised racism myself. But, anyway, everyone accepted that reality, you know. But, anyway, there were things going on.” The CIA were out to crush any movement of cooperation because groups living in light and truth, forming communities based on the Aquarian principles of freedom and unity, were too threatening to the government or, rather, the criminal shadow government. The Patriarchy was not about to risk losing control.

Each of the above deaths resulted from U.S. Intelligence targeting for “good radical activism to help the general population.” Radical Jewish attacks on black people and their leaders commenced in 1983 during the symbolic presidential campaign of Rev. Jesse L. Jackson. Louis Farrakhan was labelled an anti-Semite in 1984 after coming to the black civil rights leader’s defence. The Elite tried to make him the worse black man in history, he said in 1991. Threats were made on his life, he says. The remains of mutilated animals were left at his home and his campaign HQ in two cities were bombed. “Rev. Jackson enlisted the support of Minister Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam, whose security force named ‘Fruit of Islam’ secured the life of the candidate.” ( Then, in 1984, “Nathan Perlmutter of the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith referred to Minister Farrakhan as a ‘Black Hitler,’ as did Nat Hentoff, a Jewish leader and columnist for the Village Voice on a New York radio show.” (ibid.).

The media portrayed the shooting of Tupac Shakur as a random mugging. Similar tactics were used against Martin Luther King and his family, says Potash. “An undercover U.S. Intelligence agent infiltrated Malcom’s group. He rose to head of security, and he was the first person to arrive at Malcom X’s body when he was assassinated. Now, William Pepper showed that the first person to arrive at Martin Luther King’s body was also an undercover agent, a military intelligence agent…The one who came to Malcom X’s body was named Eugene Roberts. He ended up staying undercover to the point that he then became part of Afeni Shakur’s New York Black panthers and framed them. And, then, in court, came out as an agent and testified against the Panther 21, Afeni and her fellow Panther 21. So he revealed himself.” By arriving on the scene first, these two officers were able to check for life signs, to make sure the assassination had worked (and take action if not). (Notes and quotes from a YouTube video titled ‘Killuminati Tupac Exposing the Illuminati,’ posted by icemilf, December 2009). In jail, Afeni had had to fight to keep her young son alive. She did not think he would make it out alive. Following this troubled start in life, however, Tupac was always cute but also very much the leader as a child, according to his mother. He was named after an Inca chief. ‘Tupac Amaru’ means ‘shining serpent’ (denoting wisdom and courage) and ‘Shakur’ is Arabic for ‘thankful to God.’ (Kevin Powell VIBE article, February 1994).

Frank Coutelle (Sam Shepard): I know more about the law and the history out here than the people themselves. Let me tell you, I feel for them. They're a proud people. But they're also a conquered people. That means their future is dictated by the nation that conquered them. Rightly or wrongly, that's the way it works, down through history.

Tupac Shakur's godmother is first woman on FBI's most wanted

‘Liberty or die,’ as Assata Shakur (Tupac’s step-aunt), a former Black Panther activist and a true American heroine who has lived in hiding since she was broken out of jail in 1979, says. Apparently, the U.S. Government started a fake East Coast/West Coast gang war to get the Black Panthers back in the seventies. The FBI counter-intelligence agency COINTELPRO had been created in the 60s to infiltrate and destroy the Civil Rights movement. In order to prevent the rise of powerful black leaders, this organisation set up most of the Black Panther leaders against each other, says Fred Hampton, formerly the head of the Chicago Black Panthers. Tupac’s frame-up involved many of the tactics that were used against one of the founders of the Philadelphia Black Panthers, Mumia Abu-Jamal (formerly Wesley Cook). According to the Brighton & Hove Unemployed Workers Centre website, Mumia “has been on Pennsylvania's death row now approaching 30 years after being falsely accused of killing a policeman. Mumia was a radio journalist known as the ‘Voice of the Voiceless.’ He exposed the racist and class oppres­sion of the Afrikan and other oppressed working class people.” Mumia was “known as an unrelenting journalist,” says Brittney M. Walker, and, like Tupac, they wanted him ‘locked up or dead.’ (‘Mumia Abu-Jamal: wanted both dead and alive,’ 16 December 2010, In January 2010, the Supreme Court threw out a ruling that had set aside the death sentence of Mumia.

“While the erosion of the social safety net and the infusion of guns have certainly led to higher rates of crime, the perception being generated - of violent crime running rampant through the streets of France - is largely an illusion. This illusion is being created by both an unprecedented rise in the occurrence of ultra-violent rampage killings and a media fixation on crime that is wildly out of proportion to the problem.
                That is, alas, the script that has been followed here in America to incrementally push the people to support a right-wing 'law-and-order' agenda that has resulted in a wholesale stripping away of civil rights, due process rights and privacy rights. Accompanying that has been a pronounced race-baiting that has led to rising racial tensions in this country and a prison population composed largely of African-Americans and Hispanics.
It is notable then that the Los Angeles Times has commented that among the ‘most worrisome trends’ in France has been ‘a spreading drug-and-thug culture, especially among the young men of North African descent.’ [Sebastian Rotella ‘In France, Police Morale Sinks Amid Sea Change,’ Los Angeles Times, 22 March 2002]. Ahhh, yes...if it wasn't for the inherent criminality of those 'inferior races,' with their penchant for 'gang-banging,' we could lick this crime problem once and for all.
Never mind that the modern-day ‘drug-and-thug culture’ is largely a product of CIA covert operations that dumped a toxic mixture of guns and crack cocaine into the country's 'inner cities' in the 1980s. That is not to say that gangs and gang violence didn't exist before that time. Certainly they did. But just as certain is that the Iran/Contra operations fundamentally changed the nature of crime in America's impoverished neighbourhoods, which then became the justification for the complete militarisation of 'big city' police departments.”

- David McGowan (‘Lee Harvey Oswald Goes to Nanterre,’ 18 April 2002

“Tupac was heir to a militant family,” says John Potash, referring to Tupac Shakur’s Black Panther heritage. He also supported many members of his Black Panther extended family. “Before Tupac’s senior year of high school,” says John Potash, “the New Afrikan Panthers elected Tupac as their youngest ever national chairman. According to Tupac, the group attempted to replicate his mother’s Black Panthers without making the same mistakes…” The Elite did not want someone who had grown up in that family, in that environment and with that awareness to be in a position of wealth or fame. Potash continues: “…several key attacks occurred on Tupac Shakur as he broke into the music world, leading Tupac to say, ‘I never had a record until I had a record.’ Within several days, Oakland police stopped Tupac for jaywalking…Police banged his head into a curb and choked him unconscious. News articles have reported at least two other cases where suspects have died in police hands from those same police actions. As Tupac signed autographs for kids a man amongst a group of strangers ran up to Tupac and punched him for no reason. Tupac’s road manager, and Mutulu Shakur’s son, Maurice Mopreme Harding, blocked others in the group from attacking Tupac. Harding took a gun out and shot it straight towards the sky before he and Tupac took off running. Witnesses supported that at least one of the strangers fired his gun at Tupac, all in front of the police, who failed to intervene or arrest the shooters.” (The FBI War on Tupac Shakur and Black Leaders, Progressive Left Press, U.S., 2008). And, again: “Another time in Atlanta, friends drove Tupac from a concert he’d given and witnesses say two off-duty white cops in street clothes were beating on a black motorist in front of the rapper. Tupac rolled down his window to ask what was happening. Both white and black witnesses say the white men then ran at Tupac’s car, smashed Tupac’s car window with the butt of a gun and then shot at him.” (ibid.).

“Basically, I walked across the street; everything was wrong. The police officers stopped me on the sidewalk and asked to see my ID. They sweated me about my name. The officers said, ‘You have to learn your place.’ They were charging me with jaywalking…Why were they charging me with such a petty crime? I kept yelling, asking them to give me my citation and let me go about my business.” – Tupac Shakur (after this incident, Tupac was arrested and beaten up in custody, perhaps because he was growing older and they decided it was time to give him a warning, namely, to fear the police and not contemplate following in his family’s footsteps).

“As a kid, Tupac was an endearing mama’s boy…and started his acting career at the Apollo, in an appearance made in support of Jesse Jackson’s presidential candidacy.
He moved to Baltimore during his teenage years, where he attended a School for the Arts, a predominantly white school with some affluent minorities, like Jada Pinkett, whom he befriended. The school offered him a unique perspective on race; ‘the same black-crime element that white people were scared of, the black people were scared of,’ he offered. ‘While they were waiting for legislation to pass and everything, we were next door to the killer…and just because we’re black doesn’t mean we get along with the killers.’
Tupac’s reflections on his upbringing present him as an unusually gifted teenager, with a keen understanding of class, the political realities of urban life, and the unique perspective of an impoverished kid who spent his days with wealthy students. It was this perspective, in fact, that informed his first couple of albums, in which he presented the atrocities that plagued the black community - the gangs, the crime, the death and the drugs - in an effort to draw attention to those problems and not, necessarily, to celebrate them…Indeed, in the beginning, Tupac sought to do for rap what television cameras did for Vietnam: present a painful reality in all its graphic detail, in the hopes that it would force people to respond.
But shit turned around real quick when Tupac was 20. He was arrested and severely beaten for jaywalking, which…initiated Tupac into the criminal life, perhaps proving to him that, no matter what he achieved, he was still vulnerable to the fundamental injustices of a racist system. Thereafter, Tupac’s life and music took a sharp turn toward the dark and arguably self-indulgent - his music stopped really being a reflection on the mayhem of urban life and started being more about his own troubles with the law as his rap sheet quickly grew…in a way, the violence about which Tupac initially tried to raise awareness slowly began to swallow him.”
- Dustin Rowles (excerpt from ‘A Life: Elegantly Wasted,’ Resurrection film review, 27 March 2007,

The hip-hop scene - like the punk scene which was evolving from a stub to a full hand with fingers, becoming more refined and branching off into the post-punk goth, new wave and new romantic scenes - was starting to mature through the likes of Tupac Shakur. Personally, I have always blamed Thatcher’s adoption of American-style corporate materialism and the ensuing climate of greed for the death of punk. The political emphasis shifted to the far right, meaning that all the really cool things in society that had been seeded in the 60s and 70s were gradually bulldozed into oblivion (the polytechnic I went to, with its independent curriculum opportunities, for example). Aggressive white youths had previously gravitated, of course, to skinhead culture amidst the race war between blacks and whites in the early 80s, and, prior to that, mods and rockers. Yobs then had to borrow someone else’s cult from abroad because no one here was advocating violence anymore. Rave culture happened, and it was as big as the hippy culture of the Sixties. Just like a pop-up toaster: you go in white and you come out black! Illuminati hip-hop fuelled the fire of anger and violence, ensuring that it raged through society. I imagine that the resulting discord in Britain is rooted in black youth culture here, not as a throwback to the racial tensions of old in this country but more as a ‘catch’ when the ball was thrown over from the States. In fact, shootings, stabbings, gang-related attacks in Britain today are no longer racially-motivated, as I was reading in an article recently. It is mainly blacks attacking other blacks, it seems. This is a disease that has been exported from America and has interfered with the natural course of evolution towards greater unity and harmony in our society. America is where the battle between dark and light is really taking place. We get the leftovers, in a manner of speaking. We are not promoting our own cultural ideas – they are all imposed from America because they have the money. So, gang culture is an import and young people are stabbing each other as a result.

“Culture is a simplification and a lie. It’s the currency by which fools navigate the world. Smart people get beyond it.” - Terence McKenna.

Tupac wanted to help young black youths get off drugs. His music included lyrics about racial inequality. His ‘Thug Life’ code and ideas for a new political movement resembled a new Black Panther movement. He knew a great deal from his childhood and connected with them. Tupac’s stepfather Mutulu Shakur was on the FBI’s top ten list, he went underground for five years before being caught. With his album Killuminati, which was released two months after his death, Tupac started to go against the Illuminati. He was intent on exposing them. He implied that he was raised by everybody and that his heart was in the community, “And my change is going to make a change in the community.” – Tupac Shakur (‘Ready to Live,’ April 1995, VIBE magazine. Tupac Shakur. 1971-1996 by the Editors of VIBE, Plexus Publishing, London, U.K., 1997, p.51). He wanted to take the black community in another direction which was more united and ethical which went against the Elite’s/Government’s plans. He intended to represent the black community and he was in a position to do so. Tupac was confrontational. The Elite tries to draw certain people in so they get them to sell out and can control them. This is also why they were running Death Row records with Suge Knight as their puppet CEO. Tupac was a greater problem for the FBI now because, as a hip-hop artist, he had a lot more funding.

“Pac let it be known what he thought of the Illuminati which was a mistake. He went against the oath again. He also talked about getting his own power structure. A mistake. Calls were made to Paramount to put all of Tupac’s works on hold, especially the two movies that were scheduled for release early in 1996. Gridlock’d and Gang-Related. See, Pac did a lot of work but they put it on hold once they heard the tapes [of conversations with Tupac saying he was putting the ‘K’ on ‘Illuminati’ to kill the fear people had of them, boost their confidence and empower them, and also talking about starting his own political movement and aiming as high as government]. So, none of the work was scheduled to be released till Pac officially died. There was still a problem because Biggie was making a mockery of it. Calls were made to P. Diddy to kill Biggie. But not by himself. They wanted him to orchestrate it the way Suge orchestrated for Tupac. And they would do the rest. Tupac was not killed over disputes about wanting out of Death Row Records. Tupac was killed because he broke the Illuminati oath.” (‘Breaking the Oath’).

Evidence has now been brought forward by the Wallace family (Biggie’s) that the LAPD were involved in his murder and also covered it up. New leads are being followed up which suggest that police officers David Mack and Rafael Perez – both black – were closely tied to Death Row (as inner confidantes). The Elite have done what they can to create and perpetuate the myth that the deaths of Tupac and Biggie were gang-related. At the Nation of Islam annual Saviours’ Day in Chicago, on 11 March 2009, Snoop Dogg (‘leader’ in the black community, whose gangsta rap is said to glorify gang violence and whose visit to the U.K. came at a time ‘when gang-related stabbings were out of control in London’ earned him a ban from the country in 2006 – he eventually won a court case to overturn it in 2010 - with authorities ‘arguing his previous convictions for drugs and firearms offenses made him a threat’), affirmed that he and the other rappers of the time settled their differences after Biggie’s death in Los Angeles. The Elite were already in the process of preparing and promoting their new generation of rappers anyway. “I put a call out to Minister James,” says Snoop. “He called Mr. Farrakhan and we put…a gathering where all the rappers came together and we ended all of our beefs and we had peace and it was love. And we’ve been living that way ever since then. And nobody really gave Minister Farrakhan credit for that…The minister’s always been there for the hip-hop community…”

“You’re nobody (till somebody kills you).” – Title of a Biggie Smalls song (from the album ‘Life After Death’ which was released fifteen days after his death in 1997 at the age of 24. The last track on the posthumous album ‘Born Again’ is a message from Biggie’s mother in which she explains, “At a point in my son’s life, he developed paranoia about death and about the dying. We’re living in a world of imperfect human beings where greed, jealousy and envy are manifested by what others accomplished in life. My son was very, very aware of that…The thing my son loved most about life was the fact that he was in a position to help, a position to share, a position to give to others who needed, to others who wanted, to others who appreciated the gifts that he gave.”).

In 1994, Tupac was accused of rape and sexual assault (or ‘sodomy and sexual abuse’) only a few weeks after he was arrested in Atlanta for shooting the two cops (the actual day of the alleged assault was 18 November 1993). According to a rare (British) documentary, however, Tupac was not convicted of rape or even sexual assault. Yet, he received an outrageous sentence (1 ½ to 4 years) for a third-degree felony, explains a lawyer. In other words, the court judged that Tupac had played a minor role in the woman’s professed rape. He was sent to a maximum security prison. “When the charges against his gangster friends were dismissed, the press wondered if Tupac had been set up for having shot two policemen in Atlanta. No one knows what happened to the other two cases. It was clearly Tupac they were after.” Tupac and his accuser had consensual sex after which Pac went to sleep in another room leaving the young woman with the guys she actually came with. In other words, she lied, claiming that they came in afterwards and that Tupac had grabbed her arm and told her not to worry because they were his brothers and were not going to hurt her: “We do everything together.” This so-called incriminating evidence took the form of an unsigned account sent to VIBE magazine in London. In the documentary Mutulu Shakur explains that he told Tupac to get down to the courtroom because the main reason for shooting him was to keep him from showing up in court. That meant that they did not want him to defend himself and possibly naming whoever did possibly rape the woman. In other words, it was a warning.

The authorities were building up ammo to get him anyway. Around the same time, Snoop Dogg and Flavor Flav were also arrested so the media attention was intense, says Kevin Powell. Tupac maintained that he had been set up, that the girl lied. She had come on so hard but he never touched her, he said. His crime, he felt, had been that he allowed a couple of the men in the group to fondle her by turning a blind eye, not knowing if she appreciated that (but, being a vibrational Indigo might have sensed that she did not object) and going to another room to lie down without saying anything but also without knowing how far it was going to go. He also said that he was scared to object to their behaviour at the time.

On the night of his arrest, Tupac told the media: “I’m young, black…I’m making money and they can’t stop me. They can’t find a way to make me dirty, and I’m clean.” (‘This Thug’s Life’ by Kevin Powell, February 1994, VIBE magazine. Tupac Shakur. 1971-1996 by the Editors of VIBE, Plexus Publishing, 1997, London, U.K., p.22). The FBI had tried to kill Tupac Shakur in 1994. He had shot two off-duty police officers (who were also brothers) on 31 October of the previous year. They turned out to be drunk and had stolen guns from the evidence room; hence, he did not do any time for it) to help out a stranger after a passing car almost struck them resulting in an altercation (“Something a lot of us blacks don’t do,” commented Tupac’s elder brother, Mopreme). Tupac claimed self-defence on the grounds that he had come to the aid of a black man whom they were harassing. The Elite may have wanted him dead or put away for that; hence, also, the rape charge. His lyrics exposed ghetto life and crooked cops (something the Elite does not want publicised). They figured, or feared, that he hated all cops and was turning black youths against them.

John Potash says he received confirmation from Tupac’s lawyer that the cops and FBI were targeting him like they did his Black Panther parents. During the five years that Mutulu went underground, he received regular visits from them at school, asking if he had seen his stepfather. Tupac’s longtime business manager was a former LA-based Black Panther and also a co-founding leader of the New African People’s Organisation. He was a long-time family friend and mentor of Tupac and his mother. The authorities attacked Tupac partly because he was the son of a black leader. His mother, Afeni Shakur, was a one-time leader of the Black Panthers.

“They say you can rap about anything except for Jesus. That means guns, sex, lies, video tapes. But if I talk about God my record won’t get played Huh?” - Kanye West.

There is a Facebook page titled, ‘Eminem and Tupac rap about life and everybody else raps money, sex, and girls.’ After he was released from jail in 1995, Tupac said he felt that people need to be confident:

“I never trust the TV to get my point across. And I feel like, yo, I feel like, we need our confidence and our self-esteem. And that's what I got now, my confidence and my self-esteem. People like act like I'm conceited or whatever, but I, fuck it, I feel like I shine. And I don't give a fuck how much white people, the media, niggas, black people, playa haterz, police, whoever try to darken my shine, I'm gonna always shine through. They can lie about my words, they always gonna reign true. You know what I mean? Cause it's my essence It's in my essence, and that's what's gonna always come through and I feel like that's true about me. Like now people like 'That's blasphemy, or he's acting like he's allegiance, he's like the muslims, or he's a five-per-cent-er.' It's nothing like that. It's only to get out, I feel like our future is our confidence and self-esteem. All this rape and gang-bangin and killing and thirty niggas fuckin one girl. They all come from a low self-esteem and no confidence. Soon as we get our confidence, Cause I don't think like that, like let me fuck thirty bitches. I don't even want to be in the room when other niggas is fuckin a bitch now. I don't think like that anymore and not cause of jail. Because of my confidence and self-esteem. My self-respect. But in the ghetto, that's the type of shit that we're taught. Just like when you're in the army, you are taught to kill so you kill. You know what I mean? You're taught that, by older niggas, we taught that, that the only thing you're good for is your sexuality. Now I use that to make money, but I enforce my strength, my mind strength. That's what's more important to me now, that niggas see that this is not no accident. I plotted every single step from this to this. You know what I mean? Everything is plotted. And that's why the next shit's called Killuminati, because that's really what the Illuminati is on.” – Tupac Shakur (in an interview).

Finally, after placing himself in a position of influence, Tupac was revealing his sensitivity as well as his political ambitions. He was a poet and actor drawing inspiration from the scene around him. He started writing poetry in high school. He then started turning his poetry into songs and got more attention that way. He believed he was rapping while he was writing poetry and he was into rap even before he knew about rappers selling records. Tupac said that, to him, rap was poetry and storytelling with or without music which, for him, was more of a selling tool, he said. It is highly likely that the Illuminati lured Tupac into ‘the game,’ drew him into the rap scene. He was the son of Black Panthers and he was writing poetry. The FBI naturally wanted to keep their eye on him and control him. If he did not conform, they would also be in a better position to remove him.

“What Pac brought to hip-hop that I think really changed the game is that he made it acceptable to rhyme about emotions. He made it acceptable to rhyme about women. He made it acceptable to rhyme about his mother. He made it acceptable to rhyme towards females. You had thugs and so-called killers and so forth all rhyming [pre pac?] about how tough and how they’d shoot up everyone and so forth but, yet, no one could ever tell you how they felt about their mother.” – Dru Ha (musician).

Tupac said that, when he auditioned and was accepted by the Baltimore School for Arts, he realised for the first time that there were “white people you could get along with.” And, “Before that, I just believed what everybody else said. They was devils.” His expectations, according to the head of the Theatre Department at the school, were shocked at finding that there were “white people who really cared about him and really wanted to help him. But, Tupac was from the ghetto and, he said of this support and encouragement, “he was trying to help me but it was a problem beyond him.” Tupac added that when his family moved to California and his schooling was abruptly terminated, that was what affected him so much that he saw “that as the point where I got off track.” (‘This Thug’s Life’ by Kevin Powell, February 1994, VIBE magazine. Tupac Shakur. 1971-1996 by the Editors of VIBE, Plexus Publishing, 1997, London, U.K., p.25-27). When he lived in Oakland, California, Tupac tried really hard to fit in but had no money so people looked down on him. He sold dope and his mother got addicted to crack for a while. So, when he joined Digital Underground as a roadie and dancer, he was determined to get noticed. It was in Oakland that he had been arrested for jaywalking and resisting arrest (he filed a $10million claim against the Police for brutality). Like many young black men, says Powell, Tupac was trying to prove himself to the world and validate his experience in a struggle that was ‘outright rebellion.’

“If they can stop me, they can stop thirty more rappers before they even born. But there’s something else I understand now: If we really are saying rap is an art form, then we got to be true to it and be more responsible for our lyrics. If you see everybody dying because of what you saying, it don’t matter that you didn’t make them die, it just matters that you didn’t save them.” – Tupac Shakur (‘Ready to Live,’ April 1995, VIBE magazine. Tupac Shakur. 1971-1996 by the Editors of VIBE, Plexus Publishing, London, U.K., 1997, p.51).

Tupac said he didn’t classify his music as gangsta rap, had never performed gangsta rap and didn’t even know what it was. He implies in the song ‘Better Dayz’ that he thought of himself more as an outlaw and outcast than a ‘g.’ He told a judge in 1995 that he disliked crooked police (the judge had said that his lyrics were outrageous and suggested he hated all police and that cops should die). He was asked if he was aware of other teenagers killing cops after listening to his music. The judge’ was really quite mean and tough, misquoting Tupac and relating to him as somebody he was not. He claimed that his lawyers were trying to make him out to be a choirboy, to which Tupac replied, “You’re trying to make me out to be a devil.” Tupac said that he had only ever received five examples of hate mail. The judge asked him if he had ever responded to it and he said no but he had responded to their hate mail and laughed! “Two years after the interview a Federal court ruled in Tupac’s favour, citing his constitutional right to free expression. By the time of the hearing, Tupac had already been shot and killed.” A YouTube comment: “It was a lynching and the Illuminati were the ones interviewing him. Wanted to suppress him for exposing the truth about how life really was in ghettos, bringing it all to light.”

“Because I’m militant
Posing a threat, you bet it’s fuckin’ up the government.”
- Public Enemy (‘Black Steel in the Hour of Chaos,’ 1989).

Tupac had a bird’s eye view of the black community viewed from every angle. He was not really a gangsta but dipped his toes in during his young adult life, enough to shed some light on that way of life before finally turning his back on it. I admitted, however, that he got stuck in the gangsta game: “I sold my soul for a chance to kick it and bang.” He was photographed with a gun poking out above his trousers. ‘G’’s used him and the music business to make legit money and clean up their image. According to Potash, “Tupac was only pretending to be a gangsta rapper in order to appeal to them and politicise them. He already aided gang peace truces between Bloods and Crips sects in LA as his activist father did in the Federal prison system. He used hip-hop to influence the African-American community. He was a political warrior who used his talents for poetry and acting to politicise blacks through rap music.” Consequently, he wanted to show that he was one of the people, that he was on the street, in order to reach them after moving on from the Thug Life stage of his long-term plan. He was not a thug even though he had assaulted people. He connected with people on their level. He maintained a thug image whilst also singing positive songs which revealed his sensitivity and compassion. So, he was a contradiction (not a coward, as people like Booker assumed). In fact, a revolutionary Indigo maturing from anger to deeper understanding.

“He’s believing his rap. He’s believing the movie scripts that he’s played. Where he went wrong was when he tried to go on the street and, when it came down to the test, he did not hold up.” – Booker.

In an interview, in 1996, Tupac said he was tired of the controversy and politics in music and wanted to focus on acting – “be somebody else.” Hustlers get money mainly from selling drugs and from extortion (using a cover such as security). “Pac toyed with being a thug, joining in that society,” someone commented (perhaps ‘nograpes’), but it came back to him hard and almost killed him. So then he went in the opposite direction and used his knowledge to be a positive influence. Then he really was killed.” In connection with this ‘thug’ phase, Tupac believed “that, if you are black like him, then the chances are, you will go through the stage of being hopeless in your life…because of the way Government designed it. It is almost like they are trying to keep people trapped in the hood. ‘Devils’ meaning, here, one who doesn’t care about the hood and poverty. Not devil worshippers.”

“How long will they mourn me? Bury me a motherfuckin G
Bitch don't wanna die; then, don't fuck with me
It's kinda hard to be optimistic
When your homie's lyin dead on the pavement twisted
Y'all don't hear me doe, I'm tryin hard to make amends
But I'm losin all my motherfuckin friends…damn!
They should've shot me when I was born
Now I'm trapped in the motherfuckin storm
How long will they mourn me?
- 2pac (from the song ‘How Long Will They Mourn Me,’ on the album Thug Life: Volume 1 by Thug Life, 1994).

According to ‘Breaking the Oath,’ a two-part YouTube video by 1619Symphony (uploaded on 22 December 2008), ‘everyone wanted a piece of Pac,’ which meant that he was always in trouble. He was someone people loved to hate so, although he spent most of his time alone in a studio, no matter where he went he found himself in trouble. When he hit the big time, his record company, Interscope (run by Ted Field, an Illuminati player), could not control him because he hated being controlled. Consequently, when he went to jail they had had enough of him. ‘Puff, Biggie and Andre Hall are all Baphomet/Illuminati. They know who did it.’ So is Suge Knight. That is how he got into the business and got paid.

Many people in the black community believe that Suge Knight killed both Tupac and Biggie. Reading between the lines, I thought Suge appeared to have been a drug dealer whom the Elite quite possibly made the front man for Death Row in a deal when he got busted. Although he had been a dealer, I have since learned that he was a very dangerous man. He was once a bodyguard for r&b artist Bobby Brown. Prior to that he managed to get away with a couple of fines and a two-year suspended sentence after shooting a man in the leg and wrist and breaking another man’s jaw using a pistol. Apparently, he had a well-connected lawyer and received leniency for being a respected football athlete. Or, is that when he became involved with the Illuminati and ‘sold his soul to the Devil.’ I am sure it must be. Suge had LAPD officers working for Death Row and his Wrightway Security Company in his drug trafficking racket. “They provided security during transactions, accompanying Bloods during drug deals. Acting as lookouts and advisors, the officers monitored police frequencies, assisted in choosing locations and gave information on police tactics.” (2007, Drug trafficking and gun-running are ‘gangster’ activities relating to the two most profitable industries for the Elite.

“After repeated reports of several deaths and beatings at the command of Suge Knight accompanied with suggestions of a relationship with the ‘Ghetto Godfather’ Harry-O and his drug empire starting up Death Row against growing allegations that Suge’s record company is used as a front for smuggling guns and drugs across the country the federal agencies and law enforcement were still investigating the 30-odd businesses under assumed order of Suge Knight. However, in 1994, the U.S. Justice Department had commenced a long racketeering investigation into Suge Knight and Death Row Records. Long Beach Police officer, L.A. Arnwine had infiltrated Death Row as an agent of the federal task force searching allegations that Suge Knight and his gang member associates were heavily involved in illegally dealing in drugs and gun sales. According to various Death Row employees, the task agent was told of Suge Knight making exorbitant amounts of money from stealing drugs off Hispanic suppliers. The Death Row offices had served as a warehouse for transporting cocaine from the west coast to the east by Mob Piru Blood gang members.” (ibid.).

Someone also told me that Suge Knight and crew held white rapper Vanilla Ice over a hotel balcony and threatened to drop him if he did not hand over the rights to seven songs on his album which rapper Mario ‘Chocolate’ Johnson claimed to have written. Suge also started a campaign to destroy Eazy-E’s Ruthless record label (forcing Eazy to hand over his top five artists using intimidation from thugs from the Blood gang and threatening to harm his mother and someone else close to him whom they were holding hostage), offered protection to artists and became a “dominant stand-over gangster in the surfacing west coast rap industry.” Suge went on to gain a reputation as a powerful negotiator and manager. (ibid.).

It is also claimed that the ‘multi-millionaire Don of Compton and Godfather of West Coast hip-hop’ sent a girl infected with AIDS to sleep with Eazy which he then died of in 1995 to kill off the competition because Eazy was too good, too intelligent and had too much power. Another suspicious incident, according to some people, involved early Dallas rapper Tracy ‘The D.O.C.’ Curry who was hospitalised after a car accident in 1990 and lost his voice. They claim that it is unlikely that his larynx was crushed during the accident itself and point out that it is highly ‘coincidental’ that one of the best rap talents of all time should crash his car with the result that just his voice is gone, ‘no cuts or anything,’ in the year following the release of his album No One Can Do It Better (produced by Dr. Dre who also joined Death Row from Ruthless).

Tupac went to jail and then death row. I repeat: he went to jail and then signed with Death Row! He went to Death Row and was executed. Biggie, of course, was murdered one year after Tupac. The motivation appears to be partly the removal of another shit-hot rapper to make way for Jay-Z and co and partly a cover up for Tupac’s death, the implication being that it might be construed as a revenge killing by West Coast Crips gang members who believed these two really were trying to kill each other.

“So you have hateful racism which the Jesuits capitalise on to justify more police, to justify more prisons. They justify doing away with rights like gun rights. So we’re going to have guns in the black communities, cause the gangs to fight and kill each other off, the Bloods and the Crips, and then we’ll use them as a justification to take the guns away from everybody including all the white people. That’s what they’re doing.” – Eric John Phelps (Interview, 2 September 2012,

Tupac was writing about gangs and drugs but then realised that he was part of the problem. Not until he was released from prison in 1995, however, and saw what was going on. Inmates were talking to him about the Illuminati in jail and, while he thought the Elite were real, he didn’t think they would allow people to know their plans or that they controlled everything and everyone. To him, this was just a paranoid myth which had evolved as an excuse for not taking responsibility for one’s own power. It was a convenient excuse for paralysis and helplessness: ‘We can’t do anything because they cut us down as soon as we attract attention for speaking the truth in public, particularly black leaders.’ He believed that they just used fear and relied on people feeling powerless. Consequently, they did not have the confidence to express themselves. It was as though their fear blew it up out of proportion when, really, it was a very serious and deadly threat they were warning him about in earnest. They told him that it was the Illuminati who had set him up and tried to kill him. No doubt, Tupac heard all about the global conspiracy and found some of it to be far-fetched. In ‘They Don’t Give A Fuck About Us,’ he was saying he has to worry about real life first, like ‘niggas in the streets,’ before mind-control chips and so forth.

Tupac was young and rational. He was not open to the notion that the Illuminati were all-powerful even though he had taken the oath (back in 1989 when he was introduced to Illuminati players and signed with Interscope Records) and died for it, not knowing how serious it was until it was too late. Although he had taken the oath, he did not realise how powerful or occult-oriented the Illuminati were. “So he will maintain his thug life and continue to fight until his people are uplifted.” He was still questioning things. If they wanted him dead he’d be dead, he thought (not realising that he may have had special protection as an Indigo warrior for his particularly heroic soul mission).‘ Quincy Jones says that he was struck by Tupac’s “warrior spirit”: “Tupac was a fighter, a young man who constantly sought out demons and battled them – to his death. Tupac’s life embodied the spirit of hip hop, the music of America’s youth. To denounce hip hop is to denounce two generations of our youth – a sweeping indictment that we simply cannot allow.” (Tupac Shakur. 1971-1996 by the Editors of VIBE, Plexus Publishing, London, U.K., 1997, Foreword).

Killuminati’ means killing the fear of the Illuminati. As I mentioned earlier, he added the ‘K’ initially to ‘kill’ these rumours. He said he was going to “kill that Illuminati shit” because it was “another way to keep you unconfident.” While signed to Death Row, however, they started to make sense. He was finally joining the dots. He realised who had set him up and that the Illuminati were out to kill him. Yet, it also appears that they became more directly involved in Death Row operations for this purpose and gangster boss Suge Knight had no choice but to go along with it. The Elite knew that Tupac was dangerous. He knew too much and would soon be rapping about them. When he came out of jail, he understood who the Illuminati were and what they were about. He changed his tune. Tupac was a powerful voice and people would have revolted. As predicted, Tupac then started writing with more awareness and was shot shortly afterwards, silenced forever. 

“If I ever go to jail, I don’t even wanna be living. I wanna just cease to exist, for however long as they have me there. And, then, when I come out I’ll be reborn. You know what I’m saying? I’ll be taking less problems and my mind will be sharper and the venom will be more potent. You know what I’m saying? So, they shouldn’t send me there. They should really try to [appease?]. You know, it’s like, you don’t want gasoline on a fire to put it out.” – Tupac Shakur.

Pac was a rebel maturing into warrior (of truth). Hanging round with hustlers, living on the edge and no longer being true to himself was just a phase. He had been corrupted but he would awaken from it and be able to relate to people living in the ghetto and living the street life. He would emerge from this initiation and be in a position to impart his political ideas to people. In 1995, he claimed that he had moved on from being a ‘thug nigga’ to the higher status of a boss player, the next phase of the game. In spite of this ‘graduation’ Tupac “outgrew the image of Thug Life but he could never escape it. In the end it consumed him, leaving only a manmade myth, a distorted reflection that only tells half of the story.” (From the documentary film version of the book The FBI War on Tupac Shakur and Black Leaders, Progressive Left Press, U.S., 2008).

“But I’m still a survivor, you know. I’m still smiling and still signing autographs. But soon I’m going to go crazy.” - Tupac Shakur.

Whilst in prison awaiting sentence in 1994, the 23-year-old Tupac told Kevin Powell, “Even though I’m innocent of the charge they gave me, I’m not innocent in terms of the way I was acting…I’m just as guilty for not doing nothing as I am for doing things. Not with this case, but just in my life. I had a job to do and I never showed up. I was so scared of this responsibility that I was running away from it. But I see now that whether I show up for work or not, the evil forces are going to be at me. They’re going to come 100 percent, so if I don’t be 100 percent pure-hearted, I’m going to lose. And that’s why I’m losing. When I got in here, all the prisoners was, like, ‘Fuck that gangsta rapper.’ I’m not a gangsta rapper. I rap about things that happen to me. I got shot five times, you know what I’m saying? People was trying to kill me. It was really like that.  I don’t see myself being special; I just see myself having more responsibilities than the next man. People look to me to do things for them, to have answers. I wasn’t having them because my brain was half dead from smoking so much weed. I’d be in my hotel room, smoking too much, drinking, going to clubs, just being numb. That was being in jail to me. I wasn’t happy at all on the streets. Nobody could say they saw me happy…The addict in Tupac is dead. The excuse maker in Tupac is dead. The vengeful Tupac is dead. The Tupac that would stand by and let dishonourable things happen is dead. God let me live for me to do something extremely extraordinary, and that’s what I have to do. Even if they give me the maximum sentence, that’s still my job.” (‘Ready to Live,’ April 1995, VIBE magazine. Tupac Shakur. 1971-1996 by the Editors of VIBE, Plexus Publishing, London, U.K., 1997, p.45-46). Going to jail was a gift and God’s Will, he said. Before going to jail, he said he was tired of being the one to represent Thug Life, rapping about it and keeping it real by staying in character. He wanted to save young black people because nobody ever came to save him. He said he was steering people away from school but now wanted black people to be educated “because through school you can get a job. And if you got a job, then that’s how they can’t do us like this.” (ibid. p.51). Smoking too much weed opens one’s aura to negative energies.

So when I flow, I gotta do my thug thing
For the hood the under privileged and oppressed
- 2Pac (‘Don’t Stop,’ a song from the album ‘Pac’s Life,’ 2006).

“I’ve been getting the blame for everything that Thug Life ever did,” said Shakur. “Everything. Anybody can say ‘Thug Life’ and it always comes back to me…policemen get killed and I get blamed for it. You know, all types of violence and I get blamed for it.” Tupac stated in an interview in jail, in 1994, that, “for a young black male, or a young Puerto Rican, a Hispanic person, ‘Thug Life’ is just a phase you go through, a stage of learning, just as other young people go into the military for a while. The streets are the only place that they have to put their energies.” “This Thug Life stuff, it was just ignorance,” he said. “My intentions was always in the right place. I never killed anybody, I never raped anybody, I never committed no crimes that weren’t honourable – that weren’t to defend myself.” (ibid. p.51).

It might be said that, apart from the obvious meaning, the words ‘Thug Life’ are a contradiction. For Tupac, it was a temporary stage of personal growth (probably because he was using it as such and growing more aware), a period of initiation leading to transformation. He said in an interview that he did not create Thug Life – he diagnosed it. In other words, he witnessed and communicated what he saw, as a messenger: ‘this is the situation.’ “I don’t feel like what I did was so evil,” said Shakur. “I just feel like the way I was living and my mortality was part of my progression to be a man.” (ibid.). The term can be construed as meaning the life of thugs, the life of young people society labels thugs, the potential for life after thuggery or thuggery as opposed to life. “It was written in ink: a brand, a philosophy, both words cancelling each other out. The symptom of a problem in America, long in the making, black youth coming of age, angry.” (ibid.). It represented a conflict taking place not only in him but in a generation for which he found himself a spokesman, says Potash. “A generation that was coming to grips with anger just as he was. Thug Life gave him a face and he gave them a voice. But that voice often seemed to say two different things, contradicting itself.” (ibid.). As Alan Light explains in his introduction to Tupac Shakur (by the Editors of VIBE magazine), “Tupac had come to embody all the contradictions and confusion that have grown up around hip-hop. He was a lightning rod, a screen onto which millions of people projected their feelings about rap, about race and about the young black man in America today.” (Plexus Publishing, London, U.K., 1997).

“Even though I was surviving in the thug life, everybody who was trying to be like me was going to jail. And, then, finally, I went to jail. Even though I wasn’t getting shot at, they were all getting shot up. Then I got shot up. And I started seeing, ‘Damn, it is my fault because I’m smarter than that.’” (ibid.). Shakur said he had graduated to the next level to be a player of life: “This game of life is a game and you have to play it to the fullest. And I graduated now to college. I’m in the college of life now, you know? And I want my brothers to graduate too. I could easily just look down and go, ‘That motherfucker’s stupid.’ You know what I mean? ‘I know something that they don’t know.’ But that ain’t me. That ain’t never been me. When Thug Life was not out there and I was pumping it to you I wanted  you to know what it was like. And now I want you to know what the next level is like.” (ibid.).

Michael Jackson realised that his lyrics were powerful and learned about the Illuminati meddling with his music in order to influence the listeners negatively. It is possible that the Illuminati persuaded him to include some darker songs like Thriller, Smooth Criminal, Bad and Billy Jean. His producer, Quincy Jones, was well in with the Illuminati and even invited Tupac to ‘give it to him in the ass’ one day whilst he was visiting his future fiancĂ©e Kidada, Quincy’s daughter! Tupac said he didn’t go down like that! According 1619Symphony’s ‘Breaking the Oath,’ ‘When Tupac put this down on tape he broke the oath. His life would be in danger until his death.’ He apologised to Quincy before he went to jail in 1994. In 1996, Tupac also dissed Dr. Dre, saying he was bisexual (P. Diddy is also homosexual, apparently). Someone told me that Kanye West, another hip-hop star, publicly stated that George Bush didn’t care about black people. A year later, his mother died I hospital when she was only in for some minor treatment. They say that his death was a sacrifice for this ‘mistake.’

Professor Griff explains that taking the oath can be ‘in different ways for us’: “It’s not like you stand there with your hand over your heart and your right hand in the air and yada yada ya, whoopy whoopy whoop. No. more times than a little, they present certain situations where you get in trouble and then they come and save your ass. And then they’ll say to you, ‘We’ll just keep you from doing these 25 years. This is what we need you to do.” “If you take the oath,” he says, “they’ll make you whoopy. But, if you mess up they’ll break you.” They have to put somebody on as a ritual, he elaborates. Everybody has to be co-signed by somebody else: Dr. Dre put Eminem on, Eminem put 50 on, 50 Cent put Souljia Boy on, and so on. He says that this gigantic sacrifice results in only a handful of stars being at the top, say, thirteen. Others on the label get ‘juiced, sucked dry.’ “What do I mean by that? How many people have been made famous out of Puffy’s label [Bad Boy Records]? No one is more famous than him. Right or wrong?...All those people’s talent was sucked dry [as a human sacrifice]. Some of them are dead. Some of them in jail. Some of them are on crack. Some of them just by the wayside…And, yes, I put it before the world how Puffy went through the homosexual ritual. And now he’s got eyes set on Nelly and Rick Ross [Diddy/Puffy is managing Ross now]. Go on, you can tell ‘em I said it. I don’t give a damn. [He gives out his phone number!]…You see, they might be big and bad in your eyes [but, he says, they mean nothing to him]…cause I don’t want what they have.” He says that, if he wants it, he can get it any old damn way – without putting demonic messages in his music and going through the homosexual rituals. But, he wants something different: I’m going after the hearts and minds of my people. Everything for everyone and nothing for ourselves.” He adds that he wants all of us to live like these preachers who are lavish and rich, and rap stars, sports figures and entertainers, with their flashy cars, living in posh mansions. “And I don’t give a fuck who’s listening. I really don’t give a damn. You’re not going to suck the blood of the people and live large and live lavish while the rest of us go for the crumbs that fall from the rich man’s table. No, we’re comin’ to get yo ass, plain and simple. Plain and goddamn simple…It’s about time somebody started talking tough again.”

‘They take the oath and then celebrate the money and fame but then regret it and want to leave – but it’s for life.’ Tupac said in an interview that he had not sold his soul, despite his earlier lyrics. In 1996, things started getting real ugly for Pac, says 1619Symphony: “…everything he’d become, he still wasn’t happy. You would think doing movies, being in sitcoms, being in cameo appearances, it would have brought him joy. But the thing that was troubling Pac was how he got it. See, Pac knew the truth and the public didn’t know the truth. He knew he sold out to Baphomet to get a recording deal. That’s the only way you get in Hollywood. You have to sell out to the Baphomet. That’s just one part. If you want to be in movies and star in movies and change your whole career, you have to go to the director’s couch. By this time, Pac was feeling suicidal.” With Digital Underground he was just a dancer. He had no strings and didn’t have to take an oath. ‘It was the best time of his life.’ It is the job of people who have taken the oath to direct the public’s attention away from important matters such as truth and love, distract them so they remain stuck in duality and so that they do not enquire into the fabric of society too deeply of question the status quo (heaven forbid!). They are supposed to keep the game alive by directing people’s attention away from the hidden Elite, not openly point to them. ‘Dead man walking,’ as Tupac told his security guard on the way to the plane that would take him to his death in LA. Today, of course, Illuminati symbolism is rife in acts like Jay-Z and Lady Gaga, made to appear as little more than a fashion and funny myth which are also a good hiding places for the nasty truth!

According to Professor Griff, Public Enemy’s Minister of Information, a rapper named Pimp C called people out and called them homosexuals. Shortly afterwards, they found him dead in a hotel. Once Michael understood that he was promoting negative messages which were influencing people for ill (or which empowered the Illuminati at any rate), that they really had a negative effect, he started writing songs which conveyed his sensitivity and compassion and sent positive messages to people. He wanted to uplift and help bring about peace and unity in the world. Songs like ‘Black and White,’ ‘Heal the World,’ ‘Earth Song,’ ‘We Are the World,’ ‘Man in the Mirror’ and, ultimately, ‘They Don’t Care About Us,’ a direct message to the Illuminati as were some of the symbols and gestures in his music videos. That is when the Illuminati turned on him, making vicious accusations against him, persecuting him through the media and legal systems which they control. He left Sony, taking a slice of the pie with him and he denounced Tony Mottola (the head of Sony at the time) publicly.

Professor Griff of Public Enemy

“You did spots called battles to get your name known but your credentials were questioned. I was never into streetlife, I never touched a weapon, but when I won a battle against some hard guys there were calls, death threats in the middle of the night. Crazy stuff. Eventually I carried a can of CS gas as self-protection. When I look back, it’s nuts. I can’t imagine ever feeling the need to carry a weapon now.” – Doc Brown (on his days as a rising star of the U.K. rap scene before he became a comedian. “It’s no surprise he prefers comedy,” says journalist Bruce Dessau. He was “so heavily into the street side,” he explained, that he almost didn’t want people to know that he had a sister - novelist Zadie Smith - who had been to Cambridge. They were saying he couldn’t be a genuine rapper because he had a posh sister. Brown “represents a new kind of black comedy for multicultural Britain,” writes Dessau. “’I don’t see why I need to talk about it. It’s always under the surface because of my colour. Not referencing it is the strongest statement there is.’ He thinks for a moment. ‘I don’t know if there is a race divide in Britain today. It’s more about class. Look at the way our politicians all come from the same backgrounds. That’s why Obama is great. Not because he’s black but because he had a different background.’ Having a white father, Harvey, who was 30 years older than his black mother, Yvonne, Brown’s childhood wasn’t all laughs. ‘Being mixed race is a blessing now but as a kid it was a curse. I didn’t know who I was. You look at your parents and you don’t look like either of them. Combine that with racists shouting at you and it can really hit your self-confidence. Now, it’s no big deal, England is more tolerant than any other country in the world. I’m such a patriot, it’s ridiculous.’” (Evening Standard, 31 August 2010, p.22-23). People from ’developing’ countries say that they prefer the rules here. In the United Kingdom, if you follow the rules, you’re OK, they say. In many countries, you cannot talk back: if a policeman says ‘stop’ they want you to stop or your kneecaps will be hanging off, as one guy put it. The poor in those more corrupt countries are often treated badly while the rich get off lightly.

Tupac said that it took five bullets for him to see what was really going on. “Not long their early 1990s Blood-Crips peace truce,” says Potash, “Tupac and one of his mentors had come up with a plan. Tupac decided to take on a gangsta rap persona in order to appeal to gangs and then politicise them. He did this as part of the peace truce movement, participating in a Blood-Crips peace truce picnic and other events. Tupac called this the ‘Thug Life Plan.’” (The  FBI War on Tupac Shakur and Black Leaders). Tupac wanted to turn drug dealers into rappers because the music was the drug and the rap game was more rewarding than the street (intellectual violence as an outlet for anger and aggression, perhaps, as a bridge to increased awareness)! So it appears that he adopted Thug Life purposefully and with a social conscience as a means to an end, offering a passage for people to find their way out off the street and yet without any dramatic decisions, shocks or leaps of faith; one step at a time. Thug Life, then, for Tupac Shakur, was more about doing battle in the rap game. It is the game of attacking each other intellectually, fighting vocally, including the use of any metaphor for shooting each other poetically.

PLAY: ‘You Can't Stop The Reign’ by Shaquille O'Neal (1996), second verse by Notorious B.I.G.

During an interview (for Alright Now) in 1979, when he was the singer of The Specials, Terry Hall explained that Rude Boys were criminals (engaged in underground violence) in Jamaica who ‘dressed very slick.’ “It was just a fashion.” In the area in which he grew up in the Midlands, he said, two thirds of the pupils at his school were black so it was natural to be involved in their culture to some degree. In his book, Queens Reigns Supreme: Fat Cat, 50 Cent and the Rise of the Hip Hop Hustler (2005), Ethan Brown (who writes for publications such as Wired, Rolling Stone, VIBE, GQ and The Village Voice) writes how the streets and housing projects of Southeast Queens took over the rap industry for years. “Rappers from Nas to Ja Rule have hero-worshipped the legendary drug dealers who dominated Queens in the 1980s with their violent crimes and flashy lifestyles. Now, for the first time ever, this gripping narrative digs beneath the hip-hop fables to recreate the rise and fall of hustlers like Lorenzo Fat Cat’ Nichols, Gerald ‘Prince’ Miller, Kenneth ‘Supreme’ McGriff and Thomas ‘Tony Montana’ Mickens. Spanning twenty-five years, from the violence of the crack era to Run DMC to the infamous murder of NYPD rookie Edward Byrne to Tupac Shakur to 50 Cent’s battles against Ja Rule and Murder Inc, to the killing of Jam Master Jay, Queens Reigns Supreme is the first inside look at the infamous Southeast Queens crews and their connections to gangster culture in hip hop today.” (

Professor Griff describes the hijack of hip-hop by the Elite at length:

“Oh, you wanna operate in that $20million club, and higher, $100million club, where these brothers were operating in? Oh, you gotta play the price. You gotta bond yourself to [?] forever. Let’s look at some of the other people that bonded themselves to this demonic energy. Michael Jordan. Who did he lose? Who did he lose? His Dad. Bill Cosby [lost his son]. I can go on and on. When Kanye West wanted to be up in that space so bad, he signed the oath and signed on, became a Mason and took the oath. ‘Lucifer, Son of the Morning’ for Jay-Z, and that was his initiation and, sure enough, he lost his Mum [they did a song together called ‘Lucifer’]. Jennifer Hussey wanted to be up in that space. Yep, her family got taken out. [Jennifer Hudson was also in love with a lunatic who is now in prison]. Those were ritual killings. Are you following me? We need to understand this particular thing. You’re not going to operate up into the $50 to $100million club and not pay the ultimate price, but make a blood sacrifice. Jay-Z was well aware of all of this. So they paid him off. How did they pay him off? They gave him Roc-a-wear. They gave him Roc-a-fella records, Roc Nation, Jay-Z Inc., [Sion?] made a deal with him, in the New Jersey Nets. He owns part of that, J Hotels, 40/40 Club, I can go on and on bruth. And this is happening right before our eyes, man. They niggarised the music. As soon as Jay-Z got made he was made president of Def Jam. Guess who he find? Two known drug dealers: young Jeezy and Rick Ross who’s gonna perpetuate and carry on the madness in a negative, demonic frequency. Are you following me? You need to understand that to that degree. Now we love these brothers but they’re victims of a diabolical plan, man, to take hip-hop off course and they’re successful. hip-hop is no longer the voice of the voiceless.”

Griff also says that, when he was coming up, he stayed on a straight path and did not deviate from it. So, at the end of the day, he could go home and say, “’Nope, I didn’t harm my brother. I didn’t rob anybody. I didn’t steal from nobody. I didn’t shoot nobody in the head. I didn’t deceive anyone. You understand what I’m saying? But what did I do that was good? OK, I stayed away from those things but what did I do on the flipside that was good? Did I help anybody in need?’ You understand what I’m saying? Did I feed the people on a spiritual level? What did I do? And, at the end of the day, we gotta say, ‘Damn, did I do my part? People come to me all the time: ‘Joe Griff, is this shit ever gonna change, man?’ I said, ‘Well, what did you do? What did you do to bring about the change?’ You understand what I’m saying? You did your part bruv. I’m doing my part. We gotta encourage other people to do their part, man. Everybody has a job in this.”

In a rap, Tupac says he is worried about his enemies killing him. He’s been having nightmares too. He asks the Lord for forgiveness for the sins he has committed in his life because here he comes! When Tupac did finally awaken to the truth, his awareness made him a threat to the mafia, FBI and other Intelligence agents, politicians and Illuminati – all of them! Just like John F. Kennedy! And, similarly, it could have been any or all who did the act of ‘retiring’ him. Tupac had no real friends. ‘He asked how he could be an angel surrounded by devils. He knew everyone he was involved with was part of the Baphomet. He was also obsessed with death. That’s why he had a medallion depicting the angel of death around his neck. (‘Breaking the Oath’).

The Music Teacher.

Pete: Well, Mr. Stigwell, let me tell you that, however rich you are, I can’t accelerate the process of musical tuition.
Pete: How much money…
Dud: You can’t buy musical talent like a pound of sausages!
Pete: How much money did you say you charged?
Dud: Well, I charge 7/6 an hour.
Pete: I’ll pay you 50 guineas a half hour. Let’s get on with it.
Dud: Mr. Stigwell, I don’t think you understand. I can’t be bought. I’m not some sort of a musical harlot. Goodness! [?] boy. 50 guineas an half hour? Don’t you think that isn’t tempting now. I mean, I could be sunning myself in the Bahamas, couldn’t I, for 50 guineas an half hour instead of living here on 7/6 an half hour in a pokey two-room flat in Upminster, with my wife and baby screaming upstairs half the bloody day?! There’s such a thing, Mr. Stigwell, as integrity. I don’t suppose you’ve come across that in your chequered career, have you? Look, boy, if I pretended I could teach you Beethoven’s 5th by Tuesday week, I’d be telling a lie. And I can’t afford to do that. Not for financial reasons, Mr. Stigwell, but because of self-respect. And, that, my boy, is more valuable to me than 50 guineas an half hour. There you are. I’ve had my say. You might as well go now. We’ve got nothing more to discuss.
Pete: First class [Banfeddy?]. Nobody’s spoken like that to me for years. I like your style. I like the cut of your jib. Integrity! That’s a valuable thing and I’m willing to pay for it. I’ll give you 100 guineas an hour.
Dud: That’s more like it boy, now!

During meditation one day (after I had been listening to the ‘Better Dayz’ CD single which I bought on eBay), I was contemplating establishing a network, or group of people who would meet once a week to meditate and discuss Ascension-related issues, which is something that was on my mind at the time. Somehow, I saw Tupac Shakur clearly in my mind, to the left, and he said, ‘Fuck that shit!’ It took me by surprise and was funny as hell! I agreed and said in my mind, ‘Yeah, fuck that shit!’ And he said it again and I was laughing hysterically by then! And we just repeated it again in unison a couple more times because it was so funny! I eventually realised – whilst out for a stroll in the park -

Thug Life was Tupac’s code, a revolutionary antidote to the divide and rule principle being applied to the black community. On his last album, having changed his name to Makaveli, he attacked big New York artists like Nas, Jay-Z and Diddy as well as old-school artists like De La Soul. Consequently, he was accused of being a hater! He hated them because they stuck by the Illuminati oath and he was at war with them.

I've been Operating Under Thug Laws As A Warrior
Oppressed by the industry the hip-hop government
Watched and harassed by the hip-hop Police
Why you think Nas screaming hip-hop deceased?

J: dont worry about it, dont respond to him. He is confused and obviously has some issues that need correcting within himself. Ignore him and dont feed his fury.
K: Its ok, I forgive you. But I suggest you seek the source of your hate from within yourself, confront it and learn whatever it is that you do not know.
Me: J, so does that mean you don't like my Richard Pryor impressions? loll
J: I must confess I dont know who that is :P But I am sure they're really good lol
D: LOL. Antraeus, youre so funny. :DDD
Me: You don't? What have you been doing? Are you still living in communist Ukraine, or I guess perhaps North Korea now? I don't understand how you could have missed the greatest comedian of all time! [I posted a YouTube clip. ‘Richard Pryor Vs Audience’ and recommended Richard Pryor: Live in Concert (1979).
J: I do know him!!! :D I just didnt know his name :)
Me: Ahh, OK! Always good to meet someone with as bad a memory as I myself have! :))

“Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that.” - Martin Luther King Jr., Strength to Love.

“Whatever causes night in our souls may leave stars.” - Victor Hugo.


“They hate you with every fuckin thing they got! They can’t stand it. They hate what you look like, what you’re wearing, what you’re driving, what you talk about, what you think about – they fuckin hate it. And you gonna have to understand that’s the way it is. Have you ever caught a motherfucker lookin at you with the I-just-caught-the-stomach-virus face? [Shows the audience what it looks like]…like everything about you really fucked with them. That’s what the fuck is supposed to happen. You gotta remember to laugh in 2008. You ain’t gotta wait for a joke. The hater is the goddamn joke. As soon as you see that motherfucker you supposed to laugh immediately [acts ‘laughing hysterically’]. There might be bugs on the rest of you mugs, but there ain’t no bugs on me! Hahaha! I know why your mad nigga. You gonna have to be happy and be in tune with your [star playas?] cuz these motherfuckers is on some bullshit.” – Katt Williams.
