PBS news website reported on Monday that rapper Tupac Shakur is still alive and has been living in New Zealand. However, it the story has since been removed and it has been confirmed that the site had in fact been hacked. An online group called LulzSec have claimed responsibility for the hoax.
The article stated, "Prominent rapper Tupac has been found alive and well in a small resort in New Zealand, locals report. The small town - unnamed due to security risks - allegedly housed Tupac and Biggie Smalls for several years. One local, David File, recently passed away, leaving evidence and reports of Tupac's visits in a diary, which he requested be shipped to his family in the US."
It is rumoured that the group have now moved on to target Sony claiming, "Hey @Sony, you know we're making off with a bunch of your internal stuff right now and you haven't even noticed? Slow and steady, guys." A movie about the life of Tupac Shakur is current in the pre production stages. The producers of the biopic are actively seeking an actor to play the part of the urban legend. .
