Suge Knight’s son is looking for the “hottest producer” after claiming Tupac is alive and recording new music

"This ain't a joke."

The son of notorious music mogul Suge Knight has sensationally claimed that Tupac Shakur is alive and currently working on new music – and he’s now looking for someone to produce the new material.

Suge J Knight, who previously claimed that Tupac is alive and living in Malaysia, has seemingly announced that he’s currently in the studio with the legendary rapper.

Despite Tupac being killed in a Las Vegas drive-by shooting in 1996, the questionable claims were recently made on Instagram by the son of the Death Row Records co-founder.

“I got Pac back in the studio. New music coming,” he wrote on January 19. He added in the caption “this ain’t a joke” and suggested that the ‘new music’ would be part of ‘#NewDeathRow’.

On Sunday (January 20), Knight posted another update to Instagram telling his followers that he needed “the hottest producer” to work on “a project for Pac”. He didn’t list any information on how to get in contact, though.

After initially receiving a backlash for the outlandish claims, Knight doubled down in a fan Q&A on Instagram stories.

“First they call you crazy. Then they doubt you,” he said. “And then they forget how they was treating you at first.”

Last year, Suge Junior’s father was sentenced to 28 years in prison over a hit-and-run incident following a confrontation on the set of the NWA biopic Straight Outta Compton.

Meanwhile, the murder of Tupac was reportedly ‘solved’ last year year when rapper Keefe D confessed to playing a part in the shooting. A Netflix documentary titled Unsolved: The Murders Of Tupac and the Notorious B.I.G. was made based on the rapper’s claims.
