    I remember this like yesterday. I was only a month into my first year in college and this dude in my dorm walked through the hallways yelling tupac just died. I lost my appetite.

  16. chea Says:

    losing kurt cobain, biggie, pac, big L, pun = our generation had it worse than anyone else

    can’t fucking tell me that losing john lennon or bitch-ass elvis presley even came close

    we lost, but all these cats were legends and left enough music behind to be legends forever

    Hey BH!

    I was sitting outside in my mom’s car and they were saying it on the radio. I had just finished cheering at a game during Senior year at high school. We were all just sitting there staring into space and then I just put my head on the steering wheel… because I remember when he got shot, everybody was like so what? Tupac been shot before…that nigga will be alright…SMH.

  22. Mark Twain Fame Says:

    kurt kobain aint ish…dude was talented but he off’d himself so I feel no sympathy for dude…just for his family and friends and child that had and has grown up without a father…

  23. Drama KING NYC Says:

    6 comments and hardly any are on SUBJECT. Im confused. Is this site about BS comments or real social commentary?

    RIP to Pac.

    PS. Anyone interested in Pac news know this. High Levels of organized crime were involved in Pacs death. JDL Extortion rings lead to Suge Knight and Jimmy Ivine, Pac and Eazy E, Gangs and the FEDS.

    yeah but remember a lot of geniuses go crazy

    i feel sorry for him because i have never felt pain so bad that i wanted to end it all, so i assume the pain was excruciating

    also pun didn’t commit suicide but dude could have died for fuck’s sake he was massive

    that’s almost suicide

    anyway, this footage brings back mad memories

    Hey BD,SB21,BH, CMiddack,Mac, Land and the rest.

    I remember taking my son to basketball practice the next day and he and I ALWAYS listened to Mobb Deep “Survival of The Fittest” on the ride over. My jam was “Drop a Gem On ‘Em” when MD served Pac. But this ride was different. My son was about 7 y.o. but he understands the culture and the look of sadness on his face said it all. that was a dark day for Hip Hop.

  43. icon(trillbert arenas) Says:

    Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor has undergone surgery for a life-threatening gunshot wound suffered early Monday morning at his South Miami home, FOXSports.com has learned.

    A source said Taylor was shot on the inside of his leg during a home invasion involving “one or maybe more: individuals. The bullet pierced Taylor’s femoral artery, causing him to get rushed to Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami.
    “He’s in critical condition and has somewhat stabilized after surgery, but things could go either way at this point,” the source said. “He’s lost an incredible amount of blood. At this point, we’re just waiting to see how he responds to the surgery.”

    Officers were sent to Taylor’s home at about 1:45 a.m. after his girlfriend called 911 and said he was shot in his lower body, Lt. Nancy Perez said. He was airlifted to Jackson Memorial Hospital, she said, but did not disclose how many times he was shot.

    Investigators were still interviewing the girlfriend and other relatives who were in the home to try to determine what happened, Perez said.

    “It could have been a possible burglary, it could have been a possible robbery,” Perez said. “It has not been confirmed as yet.”

    Taylor’s family asked that no information about his condition be released, hospital spokeswoman Lorraine Nelson said.

    Taylor has a home in the Miami suburb of Palmetto Bay that he bought two years ago. The 24-year-old player is in his fourth season with the Redskins after playing at the University of Miami, where he was an All-American in 2003. He leads the team with five interceptions but has missed the last two games because of a knee injury.

    Taylor has been in trouble numerous times since he was drafted as the No. 5 overall pick in 2004. He has been fined at least seven times during his professional career for late hits and other infractions, including a $17,000 penalty for spitting in the face of Tampa Bay running back Michael Pittman during a playoff game in January 2006. He also was fined $25,000 for skipping a mandatory rookie symposium shortly after he was drafted.

    Redskins coaches and players have defended Taylor, saying he was smart and misunderstood. Taylor has been slow let anyone into his inner circle. He has rarely spoken to reporters, saying he does not trust them. Teammates said he became more mature over the last year after he became a father for the first time.

    In 2005, Taylor was accused of brandishing a gun at a man and repeatedly hitting him during a fight that broke out after Taylor and some friends went looking for the people who had allegedly stolen his all-terrain vehicles.

    Taylor reached a deal with prosecutors last year after they agreed to drop felony charges against him. He pleaded no contest to two misdemeanors in the assault case and was sentenced to 18 months probation. The pleas prompted another fine from the NFL but kept his football career intact.

    He also was ordered to talk about the importance of education at 10 Miami schools and had to contribute $1,000 for scholarships to each of those schools.

    The man Taylor allegedly hit, Ryan Hill, sued, seeking at least $15,000 in damages. Hill sustained bruises to his body, incurred medical expenses and lost wages because of the fight, the lawsuit said.

    Of course, rotten.com had the autopsy report and photos. A couple of Tupac’s fingers on his “westside” hand were blown off, his lung removed and and some other shit. Pac’s dead. I used to believe there were 2 types of knee grows:
    Those who knew Pac was dead and those who swore he was alive.

    I actually got into a heated discussion with this cat because pac “didn’t get shot in the head” so he was still alive. smh at folks so desparate for a savior that they cling to ANYTHING for hope.

    i’m generally a lurker here…but thought i’d post to this.

    i was at the Roxy Theater in Atlanta at the Goodie Mobb, De La Soul, Fishbone concert. T-Mo from the Goodie Mobb announced ‘Pac’s death. I still remember that shit like it was yesterday.

    On another note Goodie put on one of the best shows ever…live band and they finished the set with the gas masks on and performed “Cell Therapy” with the band playing the riff from Black Sabbath’s “Iron Man”…insane…niggas almost tore that mufucka up for real…

    we went to houlihan’s afterwards and they were reporting on ‘Pac’s death on CNN.

    that’s all.

    we lost, but all these cats were legends and left enough music behind to be legends forever

    ^ ^

    you have NO sense of history

    losing hendrix, sam cooke, otis redding, jim morrison, AND janis joplin over a seven year period is the worst loss for music EVER.

    hendrix and lennon alone >>> pac, big, big l, AND cobain
