Tupac Conspiracy ...

I love Tupac. I have every single one of his songs on my computer. I think I play at least one of his songs every single day. I feel like rap/hip-hop took a dive after the 90's. I like true rap because it's a form of poetry. In fact, Tupac has a poetry book, you should read it.

"The Rose That Grew From Concrete" (Tupac Shakur)

Anyways, new article from the LA times describes how in 1994, Tupac Shakur was ambushed, beaten and shot at the Quad Recording Studios in New York. He insisted that friends of Sean 'Diddy' Combs were behind it. New information supports him.

This was the first shot in the East Coast/ West Coast rap rivalry. An interesting read. I guess I won't be buying any P-Diddy brand things anytime soon.
