During an AMA (Ask Me Anything) session with Reddit users, Mike Tyson was asked about his friendship with Tupac.

"He was a really good guy," Tyson said, "really nice guy, really close good friend of mine. Favorite memory was when I saw him in a club and he got on the mic and really took over the party. He was 19 years old then." 

Tupac was shot and killed in Las Vegas, Nevada, while sitting in the passenger seat of a vehicle. He passed away on September 13, 1996. He was 25. Shakur was in town to see a Mike Tyson fight that weekend. 

Tyson and Tupac were featured on One Night In Vegasan ESPN documentary chronicling the friendship between the rapper and boxer, as well as the events of the night Tupac was shot. A clip from the film is below.

Recently, the Central Intelligence Agency Tweeted about Tupac's location.

    oh and i dont think this was a random gang related shooting, it was a well planned methodical assassination with a skilled gunman that was trained with the weapon used to kill tupac. I dont know many gang members with great control and aim like the shooter who killed tupac had. Also the fact one of the outlawz was killed after announcing he could identify the shooter and pacs former body guard also found dead after his release of the book got your back , where he says he found out so much info on pacs assassination blah blah blah... then found dead due to suicide...lol it was a conspiracy to keep pac from entering the politcal world

    lol isnt it great that tupac was so good even till this day people have his name in their mouths? Now thats legendary. Maybe tupac and tyson were not great men but no one can take away the fact the beat the odds, the govt, and society in general rose above the bullshit and were sucessful in both their crafts.For the haters i can only say keep hating it keeps him immortal, too bad when u die no one will give a fuck three maybe four days later.

    Okay, so maybe it's just me but I was brought up in such a way that, I was taught to never speak ill of the dead. I don't know, I just see it as respect but that's besides the point. It always amuses me that, firstly, people want to talk smack over the internet even though they have no interest in the article in question. Secondly, they talk smack under the anonymous name, speaking ill of the dead, (your parents must be so proud of the douche you've become), or maybe you're too much of a coward to let people see who you are? Thirdly, PAC was a poet, a genius with the English language and if you cannot see that and look past the "gangster" aspect of his public image, then you should maybe go and do some reading and educate yourself because PAC was a much more intelligent man than you are, because I think the guys talking smack are little boys and will never be a half a decent man or person for that matter. See? Anyone can talk smack. PAC spoke his mind, something a lot of people are afraid of doing, again, it takes a man to do that not a coward boy. What PAC did for the hiphop industry will forever immortalize him, much more than the anonymous smack talkers will ever do with their lives. It's always a shame when a human being passes away, life is life no matter what and for people to sit there and belittle someone who isn't around shows the kind of character you are, or lack there of, it's disgusting! I think you need to take a step back and really take a look at your life and what kind of person you are and change a thing or two about yourself. How would you like it if someone had to go spewing remarks like that about one of your family members who's passed away? You wouldn't appreciate it, would you? No, you wouldn't. So if you ain't got anything constructive to say then don't say it, and if you get a rise out of what you're doing then there's something really wrong with you, it's sickening! Maybe you never got enough attention growing up and this is the only way you know how to get any attention? But anyway, PAC was a great man/musician and from everything I've seen a great friend too. PAC will forever live on in our hearts and his music, we appreciate the quality music you made for us.

    You need to sit down and watch the countless hours of footage on tupac and tyson before you pass any meaningful judgement.I did, because it interested me at the time and i came away with a solid conclusion that in tupacs case he was greatly misunderstood.I also learnt that he was not put in jail for rape but rather sex abuse for forcibly touching the woman in questions behind.Also to finish of im also very certain that a crip gang member killed tupac quite simply because hours earlier tupac had assaulted one of there own.A big no no in that underworld.What a huge coincidence that countless black established celebrity's were convicted of rape from 1990 right through to 1995.GUESS WHAT?? IM WHITE AND IRISH...

      Mike Tyson is a retard. Be friends with Mark Cuban, not some asshole rapper/actor who made shit like Gang Related and Grid'locked.

    • coming for you

      Why do people make BS comments under "anonymous" names? What are you afraid of? At least Tupac had COURAGE to say whatever the hell he felt like saying without "hiding".....Only whimps cower behind BS statements that they can't back up...come around my way say what you've typed........

    • matt

      getting shot makes you a little bitch? what about posting anonymous hate like an impotent troll on a fucking website? What's that make you? I know some really tough dudes that have been shot...it's what happens when you put yourself in dangerous situations...not always smart...but definitely not indicative of being soft...unlike your pussy ass
