Tupac’s Final Words While Dying: “F*%k You”


  • Save

Tupac Shakur was brutally gunned down on September 7th, 1996 in Las Vegas, shortly after watching a boxing match with Death Row Records owner Suge Knight.  Now, nearly 18 years later, the first-responding officer to the scene — Chris Carroll — has decided to talk.

He’s covered with blood, and I immediately notice that the guy’s got a ton of gold on—a necklace and other jewelry—and all of the gold is covered in blood. That has always left an image in my mind. . . After I pulled him out, Suge starts yelling at him, ‘Pac! Pac!’ And he just keeps yelling it.  And the guy I’m holding is trying to yell back at him. He’s sitting up and he’s struggling to get the words out, but he can’t really do it.

“And as Suge is yelling ‘Pac!,’ I look down and I realize that this is Tupac Shakur.”

“And then I saw in his face, in his movements, all of a sudden in the snap of a finger, he changed,” he says. “And he went from struggling to speak, being noncooperative, to an ‘I’m at peace’ type of thing. Just like that. . . He went from fighting to ‘I can’t do it.’ And when he made that transition, he looked at me, and he’s looking right in my eyes.

“And that’s when I looked at him and said one more time, ‘Who shot you?’. . . He looked at me and he took a breath to get the words out, and he opened his mouth, and I thought I was actually going to get some cooperation.

And then the words came out: ‘Fuck you.’

After that, he started gurgling and slipping out of consciousness.”

    This story touched my heart. I’m a different person, now.


    What still pisses me off is how the person and people behind his death are still roaming the streets freely! I’m still thinking Diddly and Z were behind it.

      Someone is out for cashing in. Those were not his last words according to his close bodyguard (a friend).

    Pac is the reason why I bought my first instrument from Gumtree a few years ago and why I got into music. This is so touching. I always wondered what his final words were and it makes sense that these were the words :)) He is funny and efficient in his words even when he is drawing his last breath.
