Tupac Shakur fans may have been wondering about his presence in a brand new television commercial that hit major television outlets, promoting his latest posthumous release, 2Pac Nu-Mixx Klazzics.
The commercial features Pac discussing his life and music, raising hopes among 7 day theory subscribers that the rapper was still alive and indeed, plotting his return.
As it turns out, the footage was shot by famed photographer Ken Nahoum, before Shakur was gunned down in 1996 in Las Vegas.
“Seeing and hearing Pac again brings back fond memories,” Death Row Records founder and CEO Suge Knight said. “The fact that there’s new video footage augmenting the recording is a great bonus, both for me and Pac’s many fans.”
The album, which is executive produced by Knight, features remixed versions of classic Tupac songs, all produced by Death Row’s in house production team, Tha Row Hitters.
New versions include “2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted,” “How Do You Want It” and “Hit ‘Em Up.”
2Pac Nu Mixx Klazzics is in stores now.
