No Tears For Tupac

From the New York Daily News:
The identity of Tupac Shakur’s killer may have died with the legendary rapper.
“F--- you” were the last words the 25-year-old ever uttered as a cop repeatedly asked the fatally wounded Shakur who had shot him, the officer has now revealed nearly 18 years after the recording artist’s death.
“He looked at me and he took a breath to get the words out, and he opened his mouth, and I thought I was actually going to get some cooperation. And then the words came out: ‘F--- you,’” former Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Officer Chris Carroll told Vegas Seven, a weekly newspaper in Sin City. “After that, he started gurgling and slipping out of consciousness. At that point, an ambulance showed up, and he went into unconsciousness.”
Shakur died on Sept. 13, 1996, six days after being shot four times. He reportedly never gained conscious after blurting out his profane final words to Carroll, who was on the city’s bike patrol squad and was the first officer on the scene of the drive-by shooting along the Strip.

Classy for a millionaire.
A dead rapper?
Just shocking.
The world did not lose anything worthwhile when Shakur was shot and killed.
And the world loses nothing when a rapper is killed.  It's part of it's culture.
Now, if Barry Manilow was shot and killed, that would actually be news.
