Tupac Is Alive And Hanging In Hollywood

HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Tupac is alive – at least through an impersonator who’s a dead ringer for the late rapper.

Director Josh Harraway has been working as the “world’s first Tupac impersonator” for the past three years.

He’s the same height and weight as the real Pac, and sports the same clothing, bandannas, nose ring, and tattoos as the icon.

He’s often hired to rap Tupac’s songs at parties and events, and has even made music videos for some of Pac’s post-death tracks.

When he’s out on the streets, Harraway says die-hard Tupac fans often ask for pictures and tell him, “I knew you we’re still alive!”

Though most reactions are positive, Harraway has had some close calls while in character.

He was once cornered by a group of gangsters in front of Grauman’s Chinese Theater who were ready to throw down because they thought he was really Tupac.

Harraway figures the flack comes with being the first ever Tupac impersonator, but hopes he’s paving the way for Tupacs of the future.
