For those of you who know this blog, Tupac is always alive and well on here. He is the inspiration behind why I’m even in the entertainment business. Tupac is my muse and my favorite rapper of all time. I’m posting this classic throwback video for his fans and for those who haven’t had the pleasure of seeing Pac perform live. “So Many Tears” is the iconic single off of 2Pac’s legendary album, “Me Against The World”.
As you know, I can not run this blog without paying tribute to the classics aka old school Hip Hop. Today’s throwback is courtesy of my favorite rapper of all time, Tupac Shakur. He said his only fear of death is being reincarnated….but Pac doesn’t have to worry about that, because he’s immortalized. “Minnie The Moocher” is off of Pac’s album “Beginnings: The Lost Tapes 1988-1991”.
On this day, June 16, 2012, Pac would have been 41 years old. This video (interview) of Pac explaining the ‘sagging pants’ epidemic is from 1993, but was leaked in 2011. Although Pac is still my favorite rapper of all time and in my mind, completely unmatched by any other, I’m not sure if I agree with his argument or ‘justification’ of the whole sagging pants syndrome. The Hip Hop community has always had their own style, and I definitely get how we need to keep our own flavor, but men showing their drawers in public is a little suspect to me. There’s got to be a way where we can ‘rebel’ against societal norms, yet look good at the same time. Nevertheless, Tupac was an intelligent brother who influenced millions in his short life. HAPPY BIRTHDAY PAC!!
Welcome to the start of a legacy. For sixteen years, the music industry has wondered which MC the legendary Tupac would pass the torch to. After much anticipation, it is official – Warchyld signs a deal with the Makaveli Music Group, becoming a lightning rod for the reinvention of real Hip Hop. His music and mixtapes went viral all over the internet, music magazines, blogs, YouTube, and multiple films and television shows. “Then I asked myself,” Warchyld said, “What would Pac want? I felt like he would want a solider to rep his brand and family. And I can’t define myself as nothing less than a soldier.”
Tupac Hologram performing at 2012 Coachella With Snoop Dogg!! (FULL PERFORMANCE). 2PAC has literally been resurrected. And the moment when he appeared on stage at this year’s Coachella Music Festival in California should definitely go down in the history books. This is some crazy shit!!!!! I get goosebumps watching this video. It you were there live, you wouldn’t have been able to tell the difference between the real Tupac and this hologram. Especially when he gives a shout out to Coachella! Especially when he holds the mic out so the crowd can participate. And especially with Snoop Dogg joins Pac on Stage!
