Title of Article

Is the legendary thug and well- known MC really gone?

Main Idea

Main idea for this article is make the reader believe that the rapper, Tupac Shakur is still alive. The main idea in this article is implied, and it is located through out the whole article.

Patterns of Organization

The patters of organization the author use was a list.



Friday the thirteenth is a very suspicious day.

Tupac fake his own death to get back at his enemy.

Tupac was cremated days after his death.

There were no suspects for the shooting.


There were never any pictures released of Tupac in the hospital.

The driver of the car in which Tupac was riding, Suge Knight, didnt show up for questioning about the shooting.

Press wasnt going to be allowed at the funeral, but then the funeral was cancelled for unknown reasons.

The title of the one of the albums is The Day Theory. He was shot on September the seventh; and survived on the 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th, and died on the 13th.

Tupac album All Eyes on Me was released on February 13, 1996. Tupac died on September 13, 1996. That is exactly seven months apart.

Tupac officially died at 4:03p.m.

Tupac died at the age of 25. It seems as if seven is Tupacs number.


Tupac always wore a bulletproof vest, no matter where he went. Why didnt he wear it to a very public event like a Tyson fight? (Tupac wanted to make it seem like he was shot.)

In most of his songs Tupac talk about being buried, so why was he allegedly cremated the day after he died? And since when do they cremate someone the day after they got murdered with out an autopsy.

Tone and Purpose

The tone the author is positive.

The purpose of this article is to persuade the reader that Tupac is still alive.


The information on this article I find with credibility.
