Tupac's Former Bodyguard: I Was Undercover FBI

10/20/2007 4:46 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

An ex-bodyguard for Tupac Shakur claims to have been an undercover FBI agent during the four years he was employed by Death Row.


During a Q&A screening for the new DVD, "Tupac Assassination - Conspiracy or Revenge?" Kevin Hackie revealed for the first time that he was an FBI agent -- not an informant, which had been previously reported. Hackie worked undercover as a bodyguard for Death Row from 1992-1996. Shakur died on September 13, 1996.

Kevin Hackie is now retired from law enforcement and runs a private security firm. "Tupac Assassination" is in stores Tuesday, October 23.

it's a damn shame that a talent was wasted because he had to constantly defend himself from jeolous individuals who had no other motive but to kill him....his mom,the music,the money,the life, could'nt save him. He lived his life the way he wanted, i bet all the people who made those blinded comments about him on this post are white people who have absolutly any idea on what it's like to be ...... what if emenim was murderded, i bet they would cancel school, because he is a real american hero who made millions off of music that he or yall don't give a damn about, thats why bling bling is in the dictionary.CAN'T STOP...WANT STOP

anyone can be manipulated and moved to an exact position which may have been the underlying reason for the hit in new york forcing pac to relocate. This robery and hit in new york was perfectly timed and connected. Though left for dead he did servive only to join death row which by way was named after a tupac classic. one of the owners while pac was incarcerated tred to replace him with another rap artist from new york though he himself was out of compton. At this point validating himself as a tupac rival and traitor. Pac of course could'nt wait to get to the row to get right beside his traitors and expose him and his supposd replacement..This is greed and hate,jelousey for pac. once out they fell out to the point of out right retaliation murder revenge and robery for Pacs money and his soon to be released "Mackavelli" which pac held for ransom in an effort to make sure that he got paid his money first. Everyone got paid but pac even though he made the most money. Because pac got at one owner the rest of the members of the bis as allies grouped against him in allegance and agreement with outside forces to protect the hit it was sanctioned and executed.His hit was planned since the new york incodent and his jailing . And he knew that once in deathrow that it was on and what the out come could be. Listen to his last but first words of "Mackivelli" where he states who shot him if not at the new york incodent then at his last hit either one makes since and the two who were getting paid off his work of course would be the strongest allies in devising a plot to hit him again. Be sure of this, the primary shooter in the last hit was the same triggerman that hit big,the styles match exactly,and whoever knew the where abouts of pacs boy in jersey that got hit,knows who pulled the hammer back on that. There is more but this is to just spark the mind of those of you that run in circles with never ending questions. This particular comment is for you, yah you, that call youself the founder of bling bling, if pac were here as you know he'd have you loaded up against the wall close your eyes and cause since you lie, you die goodby.How many of his enemies rob his grave your all bugs jockin his lyrics and beats while he's helpless it seems.No matter wat you do,the name was switched to "Mackavelli" now half the rap games gone. Clean yourselves up pay your respect and maybe just maybe you'll get blessed things may turn around.and the servival of hip hop may come full circle.

I have been studying tupac's murder case for a while, understanding everyone's point of view on the case, because tupac even said himself that if you want to understand the logical go back and listen to people's statement's about the situation. Everyone out there said we are accuratly trying to solve this case, but wittnesses dont wanna come forward. To me that's a load of bull, the media spends so much press time, tv time, etc... on all these major case's of murder and missing people, let someone famous in hollywood, get murdered or someone of very importance have something happen to them, the media, police department, and every fbi personell will be all over this in a heart beat. But when it came down to the tupac shakur killing the media and other outlets, look at all the bad **** that tupac has done, his criminal record, and so on and so on, and they look at whoever did this as doing them a favor. I am going to take a quote from "Ace Ventura Pet Detective" when one of the officer's said, we are little busy now with murderer's burglary's and all that sort of thing a missing dolphin is exactly not a high priority, That statement right there is why i feel pissed off about the tupac case. it's like the police official's are saying there are more important thing's going on in america, than to sit there and worry about who killed tupac shakur? To me I think that right there is a slap in the face to his mother, his fans, and the people that cared so much about him. Tupac was and still is Mrs. Afeni Shakur's child, and everyone else's child deserved the same treatment as any other case. What pisses me off is the fact that let barack obama get on tv and wanna say a few words, and the whole dam world will pay attention and listen to what he has to say. But let someone ask for some justice on the behalf of Tupac Shakur, they are going to turn the other cheek. Come on Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, FBI, let's quit sitting on your ass and finally give Tupac Amaru Shakur justice, its a shame that so many years have passed, and everyone is still playing the who killed tupac game, and finally end it.
