Tupac Shakur aka 2Pac is amongst the legendary names in the rap culture. His assassination in 1996 shocked one and all with leaving many theories behind. Whenever the debate of his death sparks in, the name of Death Row Records’ CEO, Suge Knight, often gets linked.
Now, once again the Death Row Records is back in the discussion, thanks to singer Keyshia Cole. I Changed My Mind singer recently got indulged in a chat with rapper Fat Joe. During the conversation, she spoke about Tupac and the decisions he was going to take before an unfortunate death.
Keyshia Cole graced The Fat Joe Show for the recent episode. She revealed of travelling with Tupac on the day of his death. She even added that the rapper had a plan of leaving Suge Knight Death Row and join Quincy Jones.
Cole said, “Tupac wanted to sign me to Quincy Jones when he was with Kidada, Quincy’s daughter, and he was gonna leave Death Row and go to sign with Quincy. He wanted me to go over there because he said that Death Row was not the place for kids. He died when I was 16. Right, when my birthday was coming around, I just remember getting earrings in the mail from Death Row Records but Suge, of course, was already in jail.”
“My mom literally came and got us from Suge’s house because everybody got shot that night. My brother and Tupac used to rap together in The Outlawz. We all drove to Vegas from LA. Pac was in the car with Kidada. Suge was in they car. My brother was in they car. We was in our car. We were kids though. He just didn’t like that, you know what I mean? It was just, like, a lot of drama around that time,” Keyshia Cole added.
