A retired police officer said that he heard the last words ever uttered by rapper Tupac back in 1996 and they were simply, "F**k you."
In an interview with Vegas Seven, former Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department sergeant, Chris Carroll, revealed that he responded to a shooting while he was a bike cop and found himself face-to-face with a dying Tupac.
He said he made it to the scene after Suge Knight stopped driving following the shooting and as several vehicles pulled up. Carroll said he yelled at the men in the other vehicles to drop their guns and get down, which some actually did. The former bike cop explained that he approached the shot up BMW and pulled out a profusely bleeding Tupac.
"I'm asking him, 'Who shot you? What happened? Who did it?' And he was just kind of ignoring me." Carroll said that Tupac kept looking all around as the cop continued to ask "Who shot you?"
Carroll said that the bleeding rapper kept ignoring his questions, until "all of a sudden in the snap of a finger, he changed. And he went from struggling to speak, being noncooperative, to an 'I'm at peace' type of thing."
Tupac then looked at him and Carroll believed that he might finally get an answer to his question and then Tupac simply responded, "F**k you," before passing out.
TMZ notes that Carroll also noted that Tupac never regained consciousness and would later die in the hospital while on life support.
There has always been fascination around Tupac's death and that clearly has never gone away as there is both a biopic and Broadway musical in the works. John Singleton is currently directing and producing the film, while the musical Holler If Ya Hear Me will begin preview showings next week.
