It’s well noted Dre wasn’t an actual fan of Tupac the rapper.

If he was fully EP’ing this then I wouldn’t doubt he declined.

We’ll never find out but I would love to know what Dre didn’t like about ‘Pac as a rapper.

n*gga gave half of “2001” to Hittman but wanted no parts of “All Eyez On Me”.

I remember the tape and it had loyal to the game w/ Treach, pain and 3 other joints. The CDs at the time can only go as far as 70 min. whereas the tapes can go for 90 to 120 min. so you get more music on the tape but if you want that crisp quality while on the road you get the CD. Sometimes I get both CD and cassette if I fu*ked with the project heavy

If Pac made a video for this song, it could've been a hit single in 1994.

Dre didn't have pull like that if you're going to be at someone be mad at Suge. The album was essentially a death row compilation album.

What movie is that sample in the beginning from. "I couldn't help but notice your pain... " "my pain?" "It runs deep, share it with me!"

Def. A classic track. I still bump this sh*t to this day.
