Dexter Isaac Confesses Role in Tupac Shakur Shooting

Tupac Shakur
A man named Dexter Isaac may have provided some long-sought answers in the 1994 shooting of rapper Tupac Shakur.

Isaac, an inmate currently serving life in prison for murder and robbery among other offenses, told that he attacked Tupac at Manhattan's Quad Studios at the request of James "Jimmy Henchman" Rosemond, from whom he allegedly received $2,500.

The 1994 attack, which Tupac survived, fueled the infamous "East Coast/West Coast" rap feud in the mid '90s, as Shakur blamed the shooting on Christopher "Notorious B.I.G." Wallace and Sean Combs.

In a statement to AllHipHop, Isaac wrote, "I want to apologize to [Tupac Shakur's] family for the mistake I did for that sucker. I am trying to clean it up to give [Tupac and Christopher "Biggie" Wallace's] mothers some closure."

Shakur was eventually murdered in Las Vegas in 1996. In 1997, Wallace was murdered in Los Angeles. Neither of the rappers' killers have ever been found.

CNN reports that the New York Police are investigating Isaac's claims.
