Kevin Hackie, a former police officer and bodyguard for Shakur who later worked with the FBI as they investigated Death Row Records, claims that Wright and Marion “Suge” Knight set up the murder of Tupac Shakur.
Wright, who has been investigated by the FBI and officially cleared of any wrong doing, has accepted the challenge.
“The day Kevin Hackie puts up the money to pay for a reputable board-licensed polygrapher to conduct a lie detector test for him and I, people will find out who the liar is,” Wright told AllHipHop.com in a statement. “I had nothing to do with Pac's death.”
Wright has repeatedly denied any involvement in the murder of Shakur, who was gunned down on the Las Vegas strip in September of 1996.
Hackie claims that Marion “Suge” Knight hired off-duty police officers to gun down Shakur and Christopher "Notorious B.I.G." Wallace.
He also claims that the March 1997 murder of Christopher “The Notorious B.I.G.” Wallace in Los Angeles was orchestrated by Knight to “throw people off.”
Hackie worked security detail for Shakur from 1992-1996. According to Hackie, he was not present the night Shakur was gunned down, because he was in Compton, handling a suspect in a separate case.
“The reason Pac is dead is because Frank Alexander, the guy who wrote and produced this new DVD failed to bodyguard Pac properly on the night he was shot,” Wright said. “Kevin [Alexander] and Frank ought to be ashamed of themselves. The truth is these guys had almost nothing to do with Pac's life, but they never cease to come up with new ways to exploit his death for profit or fame.”
