Political Keys' Conspiracy Theories

R+B star ALICIA KEYS has blamed the U.S. government for the deaths of TUPAC SHAKUR and the NOTORIOUS B.I.G.
The singer has lifted the lid on her political views and conspiracy theories in a new interview for American music magazine Blender.
She claims the rappers' slayings were fuelled by "the government and the media, to stop another great black leader from existing".
Keys, 27, also claims the gangsta rap movement never existed, but was created "as a ploy to encourage black people to kill each other".
She also reveals her interest in the Black Panther movement - and her desire to write more political songs. She tells Blender that if black leaders like late Black Panther Huey Newton "had the outlets our musicians have today, it'd be global. I have to figure out a way to do it myself."
