New York, NY - October 16, 2017 - A&E Network will premiere the six-part limited series "Who Killed Tupac?" which follows famed civil rights attorney Benjamin Crump as he conducts, for the first time ever, a no-stone-unturned investigation twenty years after the death of the dynamic and influential rapper and actor. This series promises to bring to light confidential, exclusive documents, interviews and information that will be used to both support as well as discredit some of the key theories haunting this murder investigation over the past two decades. In addition, Grammy-nominated rapper, The Game, wrote the series opening song, "Heaven 4 a Gangster" as a tribute to his hero, Tupac Shakur. "Who Killed Tupac?" will premiere on Tuesday, November 21 at 9pm ET/PT on A&E.

"Who Killed Tupac?" is a six-hour limited series, focusing on the investigation, twenty years after the death of the prolific and influential rapper and actor, Tupac Shakur. Each installment of this investigative series will include aspects from the legendary artist's life as well as follow famed civil rights attorney Benjamin Crump as he conducts a full-scale, intensive investigation into key theories behind his murder. Crump has represented the families of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, Tamir Rice and other victims of gun violence who many believe were denied their due process of the law. When Tupac's mother, Afeni Shakur, who went to high school with Crump's mother, saw that he was fighting for truth and justice for the family of Trayvon Martin, she expressed to him how important that was and that this fight is not just for Tupac and Trayvon, but for all our young black men who didn't get justice. In exploring how Tupac didn't get his due process, Crump seeks to show how it is relevant to what is happening in the social justice movement in America today.

Through Tupac's own words and exclusive new interviews with eyewitnesses, family, friends, and colleagues, viewers will come to understand every facet of Tupac Shakur's complex personality. In addition, Crump will have a behavioral analysis completed of the late Orlando Anderson, the man many suspect was involved with Tupac's murder, based off of an archival exclusive interview that was shot prior to his death in 1998. Key interviews also include Tupac's brother Mopreme Shakur, his childhood friend E.D.I. Mean as well as other members of his group Outlawz, his first manager Atron Gregory, Al Sharpton, radio personality Big Boy, Christopher Darden, former manager Leila Steinberg, former MTV correspondent Tabitha Soren, executives at Death Row Records, former gang members of the Bloods and the Crips, Quincy "QDIII" Jones III and Digital Underground's Money-B.

The series' opening song, "Heaven 4 a Gangster," is written and performed by Grammy-nominated rapper, The Game. He wrote and recorded the song in honor of his hero, Tupac Shakur. The single, "Heaven 4 a Gangster," dropped on September 13 as a tribute to coincide with the 21st anniversary of Shakur's untimely death.
