2Pac Murderer Confesses

New information has come to light regarding Tupac Amaru Shakur's death. I've always been a bit iffy on whether Pac was actually dead or not - this seems like further proof that he is, though accepting the king of rap is actually gone is gonna be hard :(
A man has admitted to shooting rap star Tupac Shakur in 1994 after allegedly being paid $2,500 dollars by James "Jimmy Henchman" Rosemond inside Manhattan's Quad Studios in November of 1994.
Dexter Isaac, a former friend of Rosemond, is an inmate currently serving life in prison for murder, robbery and other offences. Isaac came forward Wednesday (June 15th) with the information on the eve of what would be Tupac's 40th birthday. 
Isaac, who is from Brooklyn, has long been suspected of being involved in the Quad shooting of Tupac Shakur, along with an associate name Spencer "Scooter" Bowens, who is also serving a life sentence. According to the confession below, Dexter Isaac not only knows what happened to Tupac Shakur's jewelry, but he claims he is also in possession of the Hip-Hop star's chain that was taken during the altercation on that infamous night on November 7, 1994. 
The shooting on November 30th, was the start of a deadly feud that resulted in the murders of both Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G. 
Their murders have never been solved. 
Isaac was indicted by the government in 1998 and was subsequently sentenced to life in prison for murder, robbery, fraud and witness intimidation charges.

Lil Wayne Sued For $1 Milion Over 'Tha Carter III' In Second Lawsuit This Week

The lawsuits continue to roll in over Lil Wayne's hit album Tha Carter III,  as the rapper has been sued again for the second time this week relating to unpaid royalties claims. 

Well known Dallas producers Play-N-Skillz filed a lawsuit against Lil Wayne in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.

At the heart of the new lawsuit is the hit single "Got Money" featuring T-Pain, taken from Tha Carter III. 

The production duo claims Lil Wayne owes them at least $1 million dollars in unpaid royalties for "Got Money," which they produced. 

"Got Money" was a huge hit for Lil Wayne when it was released in May of 2008. 

The song was so popular, a rock version was created by Korn's lead vocalist, Jonathan Davis.

"Got Money," which was the third single from Tha Carter III, has sold over 2 million copies since its original release date.

Earlier this week, producer David Kirkwood filed a lawsuit against Young Money entertainment and Cash Money Records, claiming that the labels have failed to pay him over $1.5 million in royalties and production services for his work onTha Carter III. 

In March, Lil Wayne was sued for $20 million dollars by producer Darius "Deezle" Harrison over unpaid royalties on the release, while producer Bangladesh sued the rapper in May of 2010 as well.

Play-N-Skillz had threatened legal action over nonpayment of royalties for "Got Money" in May of 2009, but opted to see how the situation played out. 

"We haven't gotten any compensation. We really didn't want to speak on anything like that, just because of our relationship with Pain and Wayne. We're more thankful for the opportunity to be on Tha Carter III, but business is business at the end of the day," Skillz told in May of 2009.
