It’s been 26 years since Tupac died of gunshot wounds inflicted during a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas.
At the time, ‘Pac was signed to Death Row Records, the same label as fellow rapper Snoop Dogg, and the pair went on to collaborate on Tupac's track 2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted.
Snoop actually visited ‘Pac in hospital after the shooting, and speaking to Logan Paul earlier this year, spoke candidly about their final conversation. Watch the clip below:
Speaking on the Impaulsive podcast, Snoop shared: “When we drive to Vegas to see Pac. We got to Suge’s [Death Row Records co-founder Suge Knight] house first, so we haven't even seen Pac.”
He continued: “We just talking to Suge, and he got the head wrapped up and he telling us what happened and [saying] 'Pac gonna be alright, he going to pull through he got shot nine times before he going to be alright.'"
Snoop then revealed the shocking toll seeing Tupac lying in a hospital bed had on his body.
He said: “We feeling like it's gonna be alright until we go to the hospital and see that it ain't alright. He got tubes in him.
"When I walked in, I could just feel like he wasn't even there and I fainted."
Snoop said that Tupac's mother Afeni Shakur then took him aside for a private conversation.
"She was like, 'My baby ain't never seen you weak. I don't want you to be weak in front of him,'" he shared.
"'You go in the bathroom and fix yourself up and you go back in there and you talk to him and you tell him how you feel.'"
Snoop also confessed that at the time of the shooting, he and Tupac weren’t on great terms, but the late rapper’s mother insisted Snoop put their bad blood aside.
"She knew there was a little tension, but she knew how much we loved each other," he explained.
"So she gave us a moment for me to say some things to him as far as how much I love him. But I knew that that was gonna be my last time speaking with him."
People were impressed with Snoop’s vulnerability, with one person commenting beneath the clip: “I don't think I've heard Snoop open like this ever. You guys nailed this Interview.”
Another added: “This is probably one of the realest interviews in rap music history period. All these rappers and up and coming rappers need to take notes.”
“I didn't expect anything from this conversation. I never expect much on artist interviews except what they are working on etc. I got history and life lessons from this snippet, grown up strong and really strong,” noted a third person.
