The Real Reason Why Tupac Jumped Orlando Anderson

The Real Reason Why 2Pac Jumped Orlando Anderson

Former rapper Napoleon who was a member of Tupac’s founded rap group Outlawz in a recent interview with The Art Of Dialogue explained the real reason why Tupac jumped Southside Compton Crips gangster Orlando “Baby Lane” Anderson.

Due to various speculations and assumptions on why Tupac jumped Orlando Anderson the story is convoluted, but Napoleon in the interview reveals what he states is the reason why Tupac Jumped Orlando Anderson.



On September 7th, 1996, Tupac and a group of Death Row members jumped Orlando Anderson after a Bruce Sheldon Vs. Mike Tyson fight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The reason was because a Death Row affiliate Trevon “Tre” Lane told Tupac that they saw Orlando Anderson in the lobby at the MGM Grand Hotel.

Tupac took the forefront rushing towards Anderson, punched him in the face and eventually Orlando Anderson ended up getting jumped by Tupac and other Death Row Records affiliates.

Due to that occurrence the underlying assumption became that Tupac got himself involved in gang related matters and that’s what led to his untimely demise.


However, Napoleon states that Tupac jumping Orlando Anderson wasn’t because of opposing gang reasons. He said that Tupac jumped Orlando Anderson because there was a rumor that Puff Daddy had put a bounty of a Death Row chain. That is, that Puff Daddy would pay someone if they got him and original Death Row chain. He says that Puff Daddy wanted to put this chain in a music video.

So Napoleon claims that Tupac beating up Orlando Anderson wasn’t because Tupac was mainly associated with Mob Pirus a Los Angeles gang and Orlando Anderson was a Southside Compton Crip, an opposing gang. He says the reason why Tupac jumped Orlando Anderson wasn’t because of gang affiliations but because Orlando Anderson attempted to snatch a Death Row chain on behalf of Puff Daddy, Tupac’s then enemy.

And as Napoleon says, Tupac had beef with Puff Daddy and thus the person who attempted to snatch the chain, Orlando Anderson, was now involved in Tupac’s beef with Puff Daddy, not gang beef.


What are your thoughts on Napoleon’s explanation as to why Tupac jumped Orlando Anderson? Do you believe that Tupac jumped Orlando Anderson because Orlando Anderson got caught up in Tupac’s Puff Daddy beef or was it because of gang related affiliations that Tupac jumped Orlando Anderson?


And as always we like to close with a saying, quote or adage and today’s is from Tupac: WJUST BECAUSE YOU LOST ME AS A FRIEND, DOESN’T MEAN YOU GAINED ME AS AN ENEMY. I’M BIGGER THAN THAT. I STILL WANNA SEE YOU EAT. JUST NOT AT MY TABLE.
