"I'm trying to bring 1989 back. I was broke in '89."
After Show Party:
We plan to take the same strategy we used with Death Row West, which is mind over matter; taking all our weaknesses, and making them into our strengths. And numbers…We already run the streets out here. So now we just gonna help some of these brothers get their pimp-paper on, cause we know they got talent. And we got the ways to make them use their talent, to the maximum effect. And that’s what it’s about. Everybody raps – we don’t rap. We rap to make money, we do business. Ain’t no other record company out there, that sold as many records as we did. We outsold Bad Boy, LaFace, every black record label out there we outsold them, and in one year! And I’m a convict and my homeboy just got off a murder case, so that tells you that it’s pure talent. No hype, we don’t got no all-american smiles, they don’t even wanna buy our records – but they gotta buy our records cause we represent the streets.
So Death Row East, is gonna be a personification of what we did on the West Side, we gonna do it to the East Side. We gonna prove once and for all, that all these people talking about a East Coast West Coast war, they like what Judas was to Jesus. They only here to cause confusion. We here to bring money, and to bring change, they here to bring confusion. All these weak rappers…Nas, and all these suckers they’re battling off East and West like it’s a game. This ain’t no game! If this was chess, we’d be yelling checkmate three motherfuckin’ years ago, cause we been beatin these motherfuckas. It’s not a game!
2Pac's Meeting With NaS
Snoop Dogg: “MTV had the Award show at Central Park, so Tupac and all of us from Death Row, we mobbing…we see Nas…He (Tupac) walked up to nas…nas had about a hundred goons with him that I see, that I know that they gangstas, but pac aint tripping and he just don’t care, so he walk up to nas…nas reached out to shake pac hand, and nas say ‘I got love for you pac’, and pac said, ‘well nigga, if you got love for me, I got a song coming out where I dissed you, Jay-Z, Biggie…’ He named like about 40 niggaz…he named a bunch of niggas, and he told nas, ‘if you got love for me, you aint gon say nothing after this record come out.’ Nas shook the nigga hand and looked over his shoulder…he had about a hundred niggaz with him, all them niggaz had their hands on their shit. He did them niggaz like this…like he winked his eye…like don’t do it. And he shook pac hand and he said I love you pac, and they separated.
Snoop Dogg's Fallout With 2Pac
Snoop Dogg: “We had just left New York. I had gotten off the HOT 97 radio station with Angie Martinez. That’s when me and him clashed, because she asked me on the air, ‘How do you feel about Diddy and Biggie?’ And I said what I felt. ‘They my homeboys. I love ’em.“
„After Tupac perceived that Snoop had betrayed him by siding with Puffy and the The Notorious B.I.G.., with whom Tupac was beefing, Snoop’s interactions with Pac completely changed. “When I got back to the hotel, it was a whole ‘nother atmosphere, like he sent his homeboy to get the bud from me as opposed to him coming to get it from me. …So I felt funny… When I got on the plane to go to LA the next day, Suge Knight didn’t let none of my security ride with me. I had to ride on the plane with him, his homies, and Pac. And it was the most uncomfortable ride I had in my life, because my nigga didn’t say nothin’ to me the whole ride. That’s a five-hour flight on a private plane.“
“I walk up to him, maybe three hours into the flight, sit next to him like, ‘Yo goin’ to Vegas, cuz?’ He turns [away from me], starts talkin’ to somebody else. I’m like, alright, go in the back, put the blanket on my head, knife in my hand, fork in my hand, and just sleep the rest of the ride, because I feel like they finna try to do something.“
„When we walk out…I’m like, ‘Cuz, you goin’ to Vegas?’ He do me like [dismissive gesture]. He went his way, I went my way. Next time I get a call, niggas like, ‘Turn on the news! Turn on the news!“ #hiphopuniverse #hiphopspecials
