It turns out Tupac Shakur is not dead-he’s been living in Tennessee.

A man by the name of Tupac A. Shakur — who, in spite of its name, it is not to be confused with the long-dead rap legend — was arrested this weekend after allegedly threatening police with a knife.

Johnson City police officers responded to a call Saturday about a 40-year-old Shakur, who had active warrants for his arrest and of any other department, according to a news release. When officers arrived on the scene, they said Shakur’s leaving in a car.

Shakur then allegedly turned in the direction of the officers with a knife in his hand, and before the police were able to wrestle him to the ground. After a brief struggle, officers took Shakur in prison, the news release stated.

Shakur shares the same name and even a middle initial to the end by the rapper, who was gunned down in Las Vegas on Sept. 13, 1996, at the age of 25. The police’s press release, it repeatedly uses the “Tupac Shakur” as a 40-year-old is the official name of it, but it is unclear whether or not he has legally changed his name at some point, or if so, what would be a remarkable coincidence, he happened to be the name given at birth, but it would take a couple of years before, the rapper rose to prominence.

After the rapper’s death, the conspiracy theories arose claiming that Shakur was in fact alive.
