2Pac just loves using his new nickname on this, his final prehumous album, Makaveli — The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory
Makaveli is a loose version of Machiavelli, an Italian philosopher and writer. 2pac really admired this guy after reading his book, “The Prince” in jail, about means of achieving and enduring power in any hierarchized organization, and how the ends justifies the means.
It is a common misconception that Machiavelli faked his own death to escape punishment however there is no evidence of this. In “Art of War” however, Machiavelli developed a strategy that one could fake his own death in order to deceive the enemies.
Similar claims have been made about Pac following his death in 1996 and continue to this day, but like the allegations of Machiavelli’s faked death, they are under-supported and largely sensationalist.
