Pac was a force
He always seemed so down for his people
His music touched the people in the struggle!
Then he introduced the Outlawz, young rhyme slingers from Jersey. Crazy!
Peace my brother
When I first met Mutah Napoleon & the Outlawz they were young. You can see the hunger & determination in those talented young mens eyes. I knew they were on a mission to succeed and I love their loyalty to Tupac.
