Plot Synopsis

WHO KILLED TUPAC? is a six-part limited series that investigates the death of the prolific and influential rapper and actor Tupac Shakur -- 20 years after the death of the dynamic and influential rapper and actor. Each installment of this investigative series includes aspects from the legendary artist's life, while following famed civil rights attorney Benjamin Crump as he conducts a full-scale, intensive investigation into key theories behind Tupac's murder. Crump has represented the families of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, Tamir Rice and other victims of gun violence who many believe were denied their due process of the law. When Tupac's mother, Afeni Shakur, who went to high school with Crump's mother, saw that he was fighting for truth and justice for the family of Trayvon Martin, she expressed to him how important that was and that this fight is not just for Tupac and Trayvon, but for all our young black men who didn't get justice. In exploring how Tupac didn't get his due process, Crump seeks to show how it is relevant to what is happening in the social justice movement in America today. Through Tupac's own words and exclusive documents and new interviews with eyewitnesses, family, friends, and colleagues, this series reveals every facet of Tupac Shakur's complex personality. Key interviews include Tupac's brother Mopreme Shakur, his childhood friend E.D.I. Mean as well as other members of his group Outlawz, Al Sharpton, radio personality Big Boy, Christopher Darden, his first manager Leila Steinberg, former MTV correspondent Tabitha Soren, executives at Death Row Records, former gang members of the Bloods and the Crips, Quincy 'QDIII' Jones III and Digital Underground's Money-B. The series opening song, "Heaven 4 a Gangster," was written and performed by Grammy-nominated rapper The Game, who wrote and recorded the song in honor of his hero, Tupac Shakur.
