USA Today reported this week that a just-released album by slain rapper Tupac Shakur is fueling rumors that he's still alive. On "2Pac: Greatest Hits," Shakur opens the song "God Bless the Dead" with "Rest in peace to my (expletive) Biggie Smalls." Smalls, a.k.a., the Notorious B.I.G., was killed March 9, 1997, months after Shakur was shot and killed on Sept. 13, 1996. A spokesperson for Amaru Entertainment, a co-distributor of the album, says Shakur recorded the song in 1993 or 1994.
