James McDonald, a former Blood gang member, and Tupac Shakur’s former bodyguard revealed in a new interview that he knows who killed the rapper. James said, “This is the only reason why he died, he interfered in something he had no power in.”

McDonald, known in the streets as Mob James, also talked about his relationship with Suge Knight and Tupac. According to him, the man who shot Pac was a Crips member called Orlando Anderson. Orlando was a person of interest in the original murder investigation. Anderson was later shot and killed in 1998 and has also been mentioned in previous theories that have been brought forward to explain the mysterious events surrounding the murder of Tupac Shakur.

James claims Pac’s death was the unfortunate result of an altercation that Shakur had initiated between The Blood gang members and The South Side Crips. The fight occurred after the famous Mike Tyson fight in Vegas that night. Shakur died six days later from gunshot wounds sustained in a fatal drive-by shooting incident after the fight.
