2PAC photo hoax

'2PAC Is Alive' Serial Hoaxer Icini Studios' Michael Nice Exposed
The copyright owner confirms they are not affiliated with the hoaxer.

The video claims that Michael Nice has photographic evidence that 2PAC is alive. In the video where is claimed that the video will show smoking gun evidence the rapper is still alive, Nice pulls out a self printed photo displaying three people.

“I’ve got proof and evidence this is a copy of the picture as a copy I’ve got the original safe with my barristers and legal team if anything should happen to me that picture will be released,” says Nice.

In reality, the photo was stolen from the nonprofit global wilderness school NOLS. This first appeared on the official Instagram account of NOLS not on the YouTube channel of Icini Studios. The channel can discredit this fact by showing the original photo with date, which he can’t.

“It’s mad disrespectful to you and to 2pac…I commented on his video and let him know I made him,” says most likely the photographer to the person, who is labeled by the hoaxer as 2PAC, Will Bunten Wamaru.

When the lie was exposed by Lions Ground and other YouTubers the hoaxer reacted defensively.

“You never mention why the fake photo was put out? The press tracked down nice and agents wanted to intercept the real evidence. Nice had a plan and once again outfoxed the agents.And lastly you never mention Nice’s panther connection Veronza Bowers, hes doing more for the panthers than you bro and he’s white,” says Icini Studios.

We have asked Veronza’s legal defense Mr. Garfield and youngest sister Mrs. Rhonda Woodruff Jones for comment.

Mike Tyson Hoax

Mike Tyson Hoax - Icini StudiosIn a video of August 6, it is claimed that Mike Tyson has left a voice message. In the video, description and title it is made very clear.

But when he was confronted, the YouTube channel Icini Studios admitted it is a hoax.

“The phone convo was a fun video, That’s what someone sent into us. We thought we would put it out anyway because it was entertaining. Likely a prank by someone,” says Icini Studios.


Tabloids like The Sun refer to a statement by Michael Nice to TMZ. “Michael previously told TMZ: Why you think nobody been arrested if they said they the one that killed Tupac?”

Michael Nice stole this from Suge Knight. In 2014, Knight told TMZ that Tupac was actually alive, saying, “Why you think nobody been arrested if they said they the one that killed Tupac? Because Tupac not dead. If he was dead, they’d be arresting those dudes for murder. You know he’s somewhere smoking a Cuban cigar on an island.

Private plane claim

In the video it is claimed Michael Nice provided real evidence of Tupac’s escape and finally reveals his whole involvement in the escape plot and exactly what happened that night in Vegas.

You quickly discover that no evidence is shown. It is just a video of Vegas and the inside of a plane that does not confirm the claims of Nice with factual evidence. The video received fierce criticism by his viewers.



If you go through the entire video archive of the infamous YouTube channel, you quickly come to the conclusion that it is about a serial hoaxer, a person who distributes misleading and false information for money.

People who have doubts about the content are labeled as a cointle agent. This is a desperate attempt to ridicule and dispute the facts.

When a channel is being dissed by its own viewers you know the channel is not clean.
