In the Lionel C. Martin directed music video from September 14-15, 1997, the perspective is a first-person viewpoint of Shakur. After being shot, he stumbles to a nunnery in fictional Rukahs, New Mexico. (‘Rukahs’ spelled backward is ‘Shakur’.) The license plate of the car that Shakur gets in with the older man reads “61671”, which references Shakur’s birthday on June 16, 1971. The room he goes into with the girl is room number 7. The clock in the background at the end is set to 4:03, the same time Shakur officially died at 4:03, Tupac appears also. At the end, he goes into Amaru Diner, Amaru being his middle name.

In the first 5 seconds “…rapper Tupac Shakur shot multiple times” is heard from the helicopter.

The video also features several notable figures. Mother Teresa is seen getting on a bus, and already on the bus are Jimi Hendrix, Martin Luther King Jr., Huey P. Newton, and Elvis Presley.
