Hip Hop has been around for quite some time, and there have been MANY "Conspiracy Theories" to  the stories:

Did Dr. Dre somehow "cause" Eazy-E to contract AIDS and die?

Is 50 cent truly immortal?

Is 2pac still alive, and did he really steal Biggie Smalls wife?

and when " Ice, Ice, Baby" was a smash hit back in 1990 did Vanilla sign the royalties  over to Suge Knight because Suge's bodyguard hung him over the balcony by his ankles?
