After being shot at Quad Studios in 1994, Tupac claimed his former friend (and mentee) Biggie Smalls knew he was going to be set up. Tupac’s resulting vendetta kicked off the East Coast-West Coast war. But ironically, forensic evidence seemed to indicate he shot himself. “In the haste of getting his gun out of his waistband, I believe he pulled the trigger,” said former LAPD investigator Greg Kading, who has reviewed the investigative material. “I think the wounds to his head were superficial lacerations from being pistol whipped. If [his three aggressors] went there to execute him, they could have certainly done that.”
