Tupac Murder Weapon Was Found, Current Location a Mystery

Getty Images

The handgun used to shoot and kill Tupac Shakur turned up in a Compton backyard, 19 years ago, but, mysteriously, no one in law enforcement seems to know where it is today. That bombshell information comes from a police document dug up by producers of the A&E docu-series, “Who Killed Tupac?” According to the document, here’s how it unfolded.

A .40 caliber Glock was found by a citizen in his backyard in 1998, which he reported to police. Compton PD records show it was booked as found property on May 30th, 1998. In 2000, L.A. County Sheriff’s Dept. took over law enforcement of Compton, and 3,800 confiscated firearms, including that Glock, were transferred to the LASD.

Fast forward to 2006, when Deputy T. Brennan, who’d been working the Notorious B.I.G. murder, was sifting through records. According to the doc, he recognized the address where the gun was found as the home of the girlfriend of a prominent Crip member, known to have beef with Pac.

The deputy immediately ordered ballistic testing, and the results were a match for the firearm used to kill Tupac. You’d think the weapon would be immediately sent to Vegas, where Pac’s murder was still unsolved. Instead, a federal prosecutor assigned to the case cited concerns the discovery might alert potential conspirators, and recommended the gun NOT be turned over to LVPD.

It’s not spelled out in the document, but it seems the concern might have been about renewed gang violence if it came out a Crip was tied to Tupac’s murder. Tupac’s brother was floored by the information when he met with Benjamin Crump, the civil rights attorney producing the A&E series.

A&E says it contacted LVPD, and some officers said the gun definitely never got to them, while others said they were unsure. Bottom line, if anyone knows where it is now, they’re not copping to it.

The final episode of “Who Killed Tupac?” airs Tuesday night.

Lil Yachty Downplays Migos/Joe Budden Beef, Says It’s All Jokes

Lil Yachty’s doing his best to downplay the beef he and Migos had brewing Joe Budden, but it’s hard to believe him when they just collab’d on a Budden diss track. TMZ caught up with Lil Boat at LAX Thursday, and asked if he wants Budden to see the upcoming video for Ice Tray. He admits they hired a Joe look-alike just to troll him, but says he thinks the real Joe should realize it’s all in good fun.

Yachty revealed a behind-the-scenes secret about the video having to do with Budden’s bald head, and also slammed the “groupies” who leaked the prank early. The Budden/Migos beef began during an interview before the BET Awards in June. For some reason, Yachty thinks it’s all cooled down now, despite Ice Tray lyrics like, “If a n***a hatin’, call him Joe Budden (p***y!)”

Trizz – Ashes N Dust (Album)

“I believe in the afterlife, hell and heaven, demons and angels. The horror in my music comes from a real place including things I’ve seen as well as nightmares and visions I have had.” While currently only in his mid-twenties the Inland Empire/Los Angeles rapper known as Trizz has come to be viewed as the dark horseman of Hip-Hop for almost a decade at this point.

An example of this morbid preoccupation is his early break-through project “Case 17”. 17 being the number of victims linked to American serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer. This release also marked the start of his working relationship with long-time producer AC3 Beats (Ace Beats). Able to create digitally stuttered and sub-woofer thumping soundscapes, AC3 is the perfect conductor to Trizz’s role as an urban Crypt-Keeper. Speaking of his long-time cohort Trizz said “I wouldn’t do any album without him. That’s my family so we can argue and fight about some shit we don’t agree on and still make a hit.”

That initial work led to an early co-sign and relationship with horror-core progenitor, Brotha Lynch Hung and his Madesicc Muzicc label. This included writing credits and production work on Hung’s seventh studio album “Mannibalector” (2013).

In addition to “Case 17”, the partnership between AC3 and Trizz has yielded much macabre fruit, including 2016’s full-length album “LeatherFace 2” (on which AC3 produced eight of the album’s ten tracks).
