A piece of history still exists from the night Tupac Shakur was gunned down in Las Vegas

Former Death Row mogul Suge Knight attempting to keep a bullet fragment lodged in his head, but doctors are saying they need it remove to figure out what’s been affecting his health

According to a report from TMZ:

Suge Knight has given doctors a piece of his mind … refusing to have a bullet fragment removed that’s been lodged in his head for the past 19 years … a bullet intended for Tupac Shakur.

Rewind to 1996 … Knight infamously drove the car carrying Tupac the night of the rap legend’s drive-by murder off the Las Vegas strip.

One of the bullets missed Tupac but grazed Suge’s head; a fragment lodged in his skull, and was never removed.

Here’s the problem. Suge’s in bad shape as he lingers in a jail cell, and doctors want to perform an MRI so they can figure out why he keeps passing out. But the bullet fragment causes interference with the machine, so doctors want to remove it.

Suge’s attorney, Matthew Fletcher, tells us Knight thinks he’ll die if doctors start screwing with his head and try to remove the fragment, especially given his fragile state.

Aside from medical concerns, you gotta admit … how cool is it to have a Tupac bullet in your head?

Would you have it removed for medical reasons or would you keep that bullet fragment in your head? Comment below:
