In The Alley...  Cheap Advice
Stu Gotz & Trash


Help! I need advice from Stu & Trash!

Dear Stu and Trash,
Yo, I got a question! Before Tupac died, as through his music, did he know that he was goin' to die?
Tupac Lives

Stu Says...

Trash Says...

Dear Tupac Lives,
Did Tupac know he was going to die?

Hmmm... In his last video, Tupac depicted himself being shot outside a night club. A little ironic. Don't you think? A little too ironic. Yeah, I really do think. It's like he was foreshadowing his own death. You do know what foreshadowing is, don't you? Remember in your high school English class how the teacher talked about how some goofy passage foretold the fate of a character. That's foreshadowing. I never saw it. I just nodded my head and fell back asleep in the puddle of drool on my desk.

I think Tupac knew he was going to die and that's why he did the video. It was a clue he was leaving behind for his fans. This isn't the first time a musical artist has left clues about their own demise. Did you ever check out the Beatles "Abbey Road" album or their "Sgt. Peppers" album. Tons of cool clues there telling the world that the British Secret Service had offed Paul and replaced him. The other members kept quiet about it for a long time, but eventually John had enough and was gonna speak out. That's why the BSS had him killed too. Or are all these people really dead?

Think about Elvis. Why would someone misspell a middle name on a grave stone. I think it's because that person really isn't dead. That's right folks. I think Elvis and Tupac are alive and living in the witness protection program today. My theory is that Elvis and Tupac were gathering evidence for the DEA of wrong doings in the record industry. When things started to get hairy they turned over their evidence and staged their own deaths before they could be found out. At least that's what I think.

But seriously... Elvis is dead. Allegedly he was a victim of a heart-attack suffered while spanking his monkey in his bathroom. Paul is alive and helping his wife Linda cope with cancer. John Lennon was killed by nut-ball, and is now getting a much needed vacation from that "couldn't carry a tune in a bucket, no talent, alleged artist" Yoko. As for Tupac? Yeah, he's dead and never saw it coming. Although he should have. This wasn't the first time somebody tried to off him. Having survived a close call I guess he thought he was charmed. Obviously he wasn't. Plus, lets face it... the guy was arrogant. He had left one record label, and every chance he got he taunted them. Rumor has it that he was about to leave his current record label. If this is true I'm sure they weren't looking forward to his treatment. That and loosing all that money. Then when you think about his "alleged" involvement with gangs... Hey, that whole scene just screams out "TARGET PRACTICE!" What about envy (one of the deadly sins)? There were a lot of people who I'm sure wanted to fill his shoes or looked to him for help in the industry. I'm sure he wasn't always cordial or helpful to everybody, but then again who is. Lastly, you got your nut-ball fan factor. Blowing off one autograph nowadays can get your head blown off (that and working for the US Postal Service). Being famous ain't what it used to be. In short, the guy was potentially pissing off a lot of people. He should have watched his back better.

So kids... What's the lesson we can learn from Tupac? Rap kills. Just say no to Rap.

I'm Stu Gotz! Later! :-)

Dear Tupac Lives,
I think it is possible he knew. If anyone of us looks at our lifestyle we could predict what might be the contributing factors to our deaths. From many of the articles I read or stories in the news (whatever that is worth), I got the impression he knew what could happen. I must confess, I have never heard his music. I wouldn't be surprised if he used his music to express his feelings. I think that is why most people become a musicians. It is an outlet for their feelings. In the long run, he was a successful musician. You took the time to really listen (not just hear) to him.

See Ya,

Help! I need advice from Stu & Trash!
