Suge Knight Believes That Tupac May Still Be Alive

(Radio.com) Rap fans have long theorized that Tupac Shakur never really died. Now, Suge Knight has thrown more fuel on that fire in a new interview where he suggested that the rapper is indeed still among the living.

The incarcerated Knight made the explosive claims from behind bars of the L.A. County Jail during a telephone interview with Ice-T and journalist Soledad O'Brien during filming for the upcoming FOX TV special, Who Shot Biggie and Tupac?

"When Pac died -- I mean, if he really did, you know," Knight said in an advance clip from the show about the last time he saw the rapper after being shot in Las Vegas. "I mean, when I left that hospital, me and Pac was laughing and joking. So I don't see how somebody can turn from doing well to doing bad. I'm gonna tell you that with Pac, you never know."

Who Shot Biggie and Tupac? is set to air this Sunday, Sept. 24. See the clip here.

Levin asked the rapper about the existence of "hip-hop cops," officers who are target hip-hop artists. Offset replied, "The hip-hop police? Oh yeah, they're real, for sure." See the full clip here.

Logic's '1-800-273-8255' Praised by Tommy Tutone Singer

(Radio.com) Once upon the time in 1982, Tommy Tutone's biggest hit, "867-5309/Jenny," hit its peak position of No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100. Now, Tommy Tutone's lead singer, Tommy Heath, has come out to give his seal of approval and pass the telephone hit song torch to rapper Logic for "1-800-273-8255."

It's quite the achievement, as "867-5309/Jenny" was so ubiquitous during its chart and radio run that the band handled multiple complaints from people saddled with that phone number in real life.

"I think it's a good public service message," Heath told Billboard about Logic's track, which has broken the record for the highest-charting song with a phone number in its title. "It's evocative. I like to hear any kind of positive message coming out of music…I'm all for it." Read more here.
