Tupac is 'alive and working on new music in Malaysia', claims Suge Knight's son
Tupac Shakur is alive and in Malaysia working on new music – or at least he is if you believe Suge Knight's son Suge J Knight.The iconic rapper was shot four times while on the way to a party with Suge Knight after seeing Mike Tyson fight Bruce Seldon in Las Vegas in 1996.He died six days later at the age of 25, however in the 26 years that have followed there have been countless conspiracy theories which say Tupac is still alive.READ MORE: Tupac's mysterious death - final words, fatal decision and pal's conspiracy theorySuge Knight is serving a 28-year jail sentence after pleading no contest to voluntary manslaughter for a 2015 hit-and-run, but his son Suge J Knight is continuing Tupac's legacy, sort of.Back in 2018, he made the claim on Instagram that Tupac was actually still alive and living in Malaysia.His first post on the social network was simply him making the out-there claim, despite Tupac's death in 1996.He then posted a text thread which looked to be telling him off for sharing the conspiracy that Tupac was still alive.Knight then went on to post a series of photos of Tupac with celebrities such as 50 Cent and Beyoncé.He then doubled down on his claim that Tupac was alive and well in Malaysia, also saying he was "not on drugs".Following that, in January 2019 Knight said that Tupac was "back in the studio" and there was "new music coming".He even gave interviews about his claims, telling Yahoo that "the whole world stopped moving" after he said what he did."Everybody was like, ‘What's going on?’ I went and got 200,000 followers within two days. And I was like, ‘Wow, like this is, this is crazy.

‘Stone Turtle’ Review: This Stunning Malaysian Mystery Puts a Supernatural Twist on Real-World Trauma
Peter Debruge Chief Film Critic America has “Groundhog Day.” Now Malaysia has “Stone Turtle,” a beguiling, all-around gorgeous reimagining of Southeast Asian folklore that finds its characters caught in a loop of vengeance, lust and violence from which they cannot escape. Here, it’s a dead-serious political statement rather than rom-com karma that forces island-dwelling refugee Zahara (Asmara Abigail) and an intrusive outsider (Bront Palarae) to play out repeated versions of a cautious standoff: She deals in precious leatherback turtle eggs, he claims to be a wildlife researcher, but pursues her with a passion that suggests other priorities. “Stone Turtle” marks a welcome comeback for Woo Ming Jin (“Woman on Fire Looks for Water”), a leading voice in the Malaysian New Wave who spent the last decade working in more mainstream waters, churning out a mix of zombie flicks and popcorn movies. Now, having picked up a prestigious FIPRESCI prize at Locarno, he’s back on the international festival circuit with a project that intriguingly applies elements of genre filmmaking to a more anthropological art-house format. The result is a loony marriage between “The Wicker Man” and “Woman in the Dunes,” as an enigmatic siren in scarlet robes traps a man on the beach for all eternity, building to a dangerous ritual where lives are sacrificed and a straw effigy is set ablaze.
