He’s Alive–Tupac That Is
In this sketch from the “lost” third season, Chappelle decides to take on the man, the myth, and the legend of Tupac. In the short sketch featuring Questlove from the Roots, Chappelle is at the club dancing when a new Tupac song called “I Wrote This Song a Long Time Ago” comes on.
Everyone is excited until they pay attention to the lyrics, which make reference to specific events that happened long after Tupac’s death in 1996.
It has long been rumored that Tupac is alive and in hiding, and people have alleged that they’ve seen the rapper in Cuba, Haiti, and even Detroit.
Chappelle’s Show hit it right on the nose again. Tupac would eventually take the stage again–but in hologram form. Pac performed at the Coachella Music Festival in April 2012. His performance, and the fact that’s he’s released seven albums since his tragic death, prove that he truly is alive–his legacy that is.
