But conspiracy theorists have been convinced for years that the California Love star survived the shooting and faked his death in order to flee the spotlight.
Images of the Hit Em Up rapper supposedly alive to this day circulated earlier this month, after being posted by YouTube channel WiredUp TV.
And a member of the team has now claimed Tupac’s autopsy report was faked, because of two distinct mistakes.
Danny – who didn’t give his last name – told Daily Star Online: “The autopsy results say he was 6ft tall and he was 215lbs.”
“But Tupac was 5ft10ins maximum and 170lbs on his best day.
“I didn’t know Tupac was as tall as Michael Jordan.”
On the singer’s official coroner’s report, Pac’s height does, in fact, read as 72ins tall (6ft).
But on the star’s driving license, issued by the US state of California only four months before the singer’s death, it states he was 5ft 10ins.
It also states that the singer weighed only 76kg (167lbs), unlike the 97kg (215lbs) registered on his coroner’s report.
The conspiracist asked: “How can you make that mistake? A professional place where they do this every day? How can they get his height and weight so wrong?
“I’ve seen many others and none of them are that off, not even close my friends.”
Dr Robert Jordan – a pathologist with the Clark County Coroner’s office where Tupac’s body was taken – denied any mistakes.
In the video seen above, he claimed the rapper’s height was different because “an individual standing up is usually shorter than when he is standing down”.
But that didn’t convince Danny, who said: “The death certificate was forged, it is a fake.”
He also believes the discrepancies prove that the coroner’s report is “forged” – and that Tupac never actually died.
“Only a few people were in on his plan to fake his death, about four to five people,” he continued.
“And it was Tupac’s plan to fake his death.”
Danny told this site that he has plenty more images and videos of the rapper alive and well, but will not post them until his “source” gives him the okay to do so.
Only weeks ago, an image of Tupac taken eight years after his death surfaced, sparking a frenzy.
