More than 25-years after Tupac was killed in a Las Vegas shooting, his murder remains unsolved. While there’s many theories about who the shooter is, with the most popular being Orlando Anderson. Tupac’s biological father alleges there was a bigger power at play.

In his interview with The Art Of Dialogue, Billy Garland alleges his son was set up by the feds. “He was being tailed by the government the night of his assassination, he’s being tailed by the government in Quad Studios, it’s a known fact,” claimed Garland.

He recalled the night at the MGM Grand and refutes claims that Orlando Anderson was the shooter.

“It looked like a setup to me. Somebody told this guy [Orlando Anderson] to stand there with the Death Row thing and it pursued to what we had but I don’t think he had anything to do with the death of my son.”

Tupac Shakur was shot and killed in Las Vegas on September 13, 1996. According to reports, Orlando Anderson killed Pac in retaliation to the All Eyez On Me rapper and his crew jumping him at the MGM grand hours after the Mike Tyson fight. Despite confessions from Keefe D who admitted his nephew was the shooter, Anderson was never persecuted for the death of Pac. 

Anderson was later shot and killed in a separate incident that had nothing to do with Tupac.

Elsewhere in his conversation with The Art Of Dialogue, Billy Garland revealed he was ‘upset’ at being called a ‘coward’ on Dear Mama. He was eventually unbothered about the song when he learned Pac only rapped about the lies he was fed.

“At first, I was upset ’cause I’m trying to see you,” he said. “But then it hit me! One, I ain’t dead and so you really didn’t know ’cause if you would’ve known me then you would’ve known that I wasn’t dead. So I knew there that someone had lied to him from that point.

“And so later on when I found that out that someone did lie to him, that song made perfectly good sense. I understood it totally. When I hear it now, I laugh. I still love the fucking record. I love it, I do. I think it’s beautiful. I love all his music, though. I listen to his music daily — every freaking day, and I like it.”
