American journalist says he warned Tupac to be careful of his 'thug' friends two weeks before his murder

Tupac Shakur was warned to be careful of his "thug" pals two weeks before his death in 1996, it has been claimed.

The star, known as 2Pac and Makaveli, was just 25 when he was shot twice in the chest, once in the arm and once in the thigh following a drive-by shooting outside Las Vegas' Club 662.

He died six days later on September 13 and this year marks 24 years since the rapper passed.

Now, over a decade later, American journalist Ed Gordon has told that he urged the Thug 4 Life hitmaker to be "careful" of the people around him.

Detailing how he became friends with the musician, Gordon told Page Six : “The first time I interviewed him, he asked if he could have my cellphone number.

“He told me, ‘You’re not old enough to be my father, but you’re old enough to have some wisdom that I don’t have — and I’m short of that.’ So he would call me every now and then.”

Ed then added that just two weeks before Tupac's death, he said: “I told him, ‘The cats you’re running around with are real thugs — you are not a thug.’”

Tupac’s murder remains unsolved and the case open.

Over the years several people have claimed they have spotted Tupac, suggesting that he faked his own death.

Last year one of the original detectives on the case claimed the murder could finally get solved beause they have all the evidence they need to make an arrest.

Former LAPD homicide officer Greg Kading claims original suspect Orlando Anderson’s uncle Duane Keith ‘Keefe D’ Davis holds the key to unlocking the truth.

The retired cop says Keefe D confessed to the killing when he questioned him over the murder of fellow rapper Biggie Smalls.
