Tupac Shakur was murdered in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas, Nevada, US, on September 13, 1996.
Conspiracy theorists are convinced the California Love star survived the shooting and have pointed to supposed “sightings” of the rapper since his death.
And a fresh photo has recently emerged adding further fuel to the truly bizarre fire.
YouTube channel Wired Up TV uploaded a photo on March 29 – claimed to have been taken in 2002 – of a man bearing startling similarities to the rapper.
In the video, the presenter reveals that “someone close to the family” shared the image of the so-called singer.
With the image over the screen, the man said: “This picture right here is the one I wanted to show you guys, this is a picture of Mr Tupac Shakur in 2002.
“This picture was sent to his family to let them know that he was alright.
“As you can see he may be a little scrubby and stuff like that.”
The image shows the rim of a white hat placed on his head.
He further adds: “You’ve heard Morpheme (Tupac’s brother) and other people say that he was getting very religious by the end of ’96.
“And right here, to me what it looks like he’s a Muslim and he might have a (Taqiyah) Muslim cap on.
“But you know, I might be wrong. I’m just saying what has been set out there.”
Wired Up TV then attempts to back his wild claims up by stating: “I got this picture from somebody very close to the family.
“They’ve been telling me about this picture for a while now and that he would actually go out on the limb and put his name behind it and say, this is PAC.”
The shocking claimant offers no context behind the images so where it was taken and who it was shot by remains a mystery.
Since uploading the video only days ago, over 10,000 people have flocked in to watch it.
Wired Up TV captioned it: “TUPAC ALIVE: REAL PIC OF TUPAC 2002.”
One believer commented: “That’s the best evidence I’ve seen. That is Tupac for sure.”
Another added: “That is Tupac, there no doubt in my mind.”
“Wow, this is 10000% Pac!” a third person believed.
But not everybody believed the conspiracy.
In a bid to debunk the YouTuber’s video, one person commented: “This is a fake pic dude. You can see the dark shades coloured in on the right eyebrow.
“The beard is shaded in to make him look older. This pic is 100% fake. Nice try though.”
It’s not uncommon for conspiracies surrounding the singer to hit the headlines.
Months ago, Rapper Suge Knight spoke out over his son’s claims that the singer is still alive.
