On the fateful Saturday morning of September 7, 1996, Tupac Shakur along with his cousin and fiance Kidada Jones drove from his home in Calabasas, California to Las Vegas, Nevada. It was a last minute trip to meet up with Suge Knight and attend the Mike Tyson vs. Bruce Seldon fight at the MGM Grand.
Here is a photo of 2Pac upon his arrival in Las Vegas in the lobby of the Luxor Hotel where he had booked a room for that night.
UPDATE: My buddy from the Delta Bravo Urban Exploration Team took this photo in 2017 at the exact spot in the Luxor lobby where the photo above was taken.
For the fight, Pac changed into a Guerra raw silk orange dress shirt, Armani blue jeans, a pair of hush puppy brown suede shoes and donning his famous gold medallion necklace.
Here’s a few photos of 2Pac before and after the fight at the MGM Grand Hotel. CLICK PHOTO FOR LARGER IMAGE
Here is the second to last video of Tupac Shakur alive as he walks through the lobby of the MGM Grand Hotel after the fight.
2Pac’s second to last outfit is actually on display at the Las Vegas Hard Rock Casino. It was purchased at auction for $1,250.00 in 2010.
After the fight, 2Pac gambled and got into a fight at the MGM Casino and then headed to his hotel room at the Luxor to make his last wardrobe change into the outfit he would be killed in. He left the medallion chain on and put on the same black Nike basketball tank top he wore in the “How Do You Want It” music video that was filmed in April of 1996.
Here are a few photos of 2Pac in the tank top just a few moments before hopping into the BMW with Suge.
This claims to be second to last photo taken of Pac before he got into the BMW.
Here’s a still from the final video showing Tupac Shakur alive…
Here’s the short clip of the last video with Tupac Alive!!
This of course is the last photo of 2Pac alive taken on the Las Vegas Strip in Suge Knight’s BMW minutes before he was shot.
