This Day in the History of Show Business Rivalries Turning Deadly

On this day in 1996, rapper Tupac Shakur was shot and mortally wounded on the Las Vegas Strip. The murder has never been solved. I have to admit that I could stand some of his songs. One question to be answered is whether it is better to go out like Tupac or die like many of the rockers, including Jimi Hendrix, from aspirating vomit after a drug overdose. Tough call, and after all dead is dead.

The photo is of Tupac and Suge Knight 20 minutes before the shooting.
