BMW Tupac was riding in when he was shot put up for sale for nearly $2m

The BMW car which Tupac Shakur was riding in before being shot in 1996, has been put up for sale for nearly $2m. The superstar rapper was in Las Vegas on September 7, 1996 with Suge Knight and their entourage, to watch a Mike Tyson fight. However after they were stopped at a red light after the bout, suspects in a white vehicle opened fire. Shakur was hit four times, including one bullet that struck him in his lung. Six days later, it was announced that Tupac had passed away. The car which has been restored to its original condition, now has an asking price of $1.7m. Potential buyers can view the car for themselves at Celebrity Cars Las Vegas showroom and, coincidentally, TMZ reported that it isn't far from where the 1996 shooting took place.

Boxing legend, Mike Tyson has replied Soulja boy after the rapper threw shade at him, saying the only thing he will do is teach Chris how to bite his ear. In a video posted by the legend, he promises to teach Chris brown all the tricks in the book except how to run. Obviously referring to critics claims Floyd Mayweather is fond of running in the boxing ring. It's official. I'm going to train @chrisbrownofficial. Gonna teach him every dirty trick in the book to knockout @souljaboy. #showup #desertbeatdown #norunning #noexcuses @fredfrenchy A video posted by Mike Tyson (@miketyson) on Jan 8, 2017 at 6:53pm PST
