What If Biggie and Tupac Were Still Alive?


If Biggie and Tupac were still alive, would half the rappers that's in the music industry be there? Would Jay-Z or Nas gotten as far as they did?

What if both artist would be less relevant if they were alive? Many say their deaths cause the impact of there music being as great as it is, but I feel otherwise.

Tupac's All Eyez on Me album was one of the greatest albums of the 90's if you ask me. All cultures was buying this album and it sold through the roof. Shakur has sold over 75 million records worldwide, so think how many it would be if he never was killed.

Death sells records. As sales of posthumous albums by murdered stars the Notorious B.I.G., Tupac Shakur and Selena have shown, it is increasingly easy to become No. 1 with a bullet.

For instance, the Notorious B.I.G.'s "Life After Death" album, released just two weeks after B.I.G. (Christopher Wallace, a k a Biggie Smalls) was gunned down in Los Angeles, sold 685,000 copies the first week.

In the week after Smalls's death, about 10,000 copies of his 1994 debut, "Ready to Die," were sold, now compare that to Tupac Shakur, who sold 67,000 records in the week following his murder.

Would Tupac and Biggie be considered GOAT rappers if they weren’t killed? What if they were still alive today, would there be mumble rappers? Just think. would the industry have to search so hard for that next big hit? Would album sales have fallen?

Do you think Tupac and Biggie would have settled the beef? How much would be different? Would they still be remembered and praised the same way they are now?

B.I.G. SUV Sells For $1.5 Million


One week after the BMW Tupac was shot in on the Vegas strip in 1996 was put on the market for $1.5 million, the SUV Biggie was murdered in in 1997 went up for sale for the same cost.

On Thursday, March 2, it was announced that the sale of the green GMC Suburban the Brooklyn rapper was riding shotgun in when a gunman pulled up alongside the vehicle and took his life in L.A. in 1997, has gone public. Its current owner divulged to TMZ that it was in seeing the price Tupac's car was valued at that she decided to test the market as well.

The owner originally came into possession of the vehicle seven months after B.I.G's murder on March 9 of that year. Intriguingly, she says that the family wasn't even aware of the Suburban's history until 2005, when a detective contacted them to request it as evidence in the rapper's wrongful death trial.

A brand new purchase of the same '97 model today would run a buyer a mere $2,000. But the historical value it now attains is unquestionable with hip hop's rise to rock and roll fame over the past two decades. The passenger seat belt still has a bullet hole in it, to boot. The BMW 750IL Pac was shot in also still had markings of the bullets sprayed into the car, with an indentation in the license plate as well as the door panel. In contrast to the history of the SUV though, Tupac's Beemer has changed hands several times since his shooting.

The Notorious One was gunned down after leaving an industry party in L.A. only six months after Tupac's dramatic death. The fact that his life was stopped on the West Coast, following a public rap beef that was sensationalized by the media as an East vs. West, rivalry has brought the incident to survive with a lasting allure, encapsulated by the time that it took place.

Understanding #MoviesWeLove Menace II Society


Menace II Society is much more than your typical hood movie. Caine narrates the story of his life, explaining how after the riots, drugs came into effect, and affected his home life as a child.

Tupac Shakur was originally supposed to play a role in the film but was fired by Allen Hughes, apparently because Tupac was causing problems on the set. Things later escalated on the set of a music video, when members of Tupac's entourage were found beating up on Allen Hughes.

Menace 2 Society is about a young street hustler attempts to escape the rigors and temptations of the ghetto in a quest for a better life. In an unflinching look at the mean streets of the contemporary urban American ghetto, a Black youth--despite his dreams for a better life--ultimately succumbs to the cycle of violence that pervades his community.

Erotic Drawing Of 2Pac Sold for $21K


Artwork that 2Pac made behind bars for his then-girlfriend Desiree Smith was up for auction. Steiner Auctions is behind the sale of the rare drawing, which shows 2Pac having sex with Smith with the message, 'Missing You Deeply" scrolled across the top. 

The late rapper made the drawing for Smith while locked up at Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora, NY in 1995.

The x-rated drawing that the multi talented Tupac Shakur made for his girlfriend while in prison back in 1995 was recently auctioned off for $21,155.75. TMZ reports a wealthy man in his 60s put in the final bid to secure the drawing of Pac with then-girlfriend Desiree Smith. The art piece also included a hand decorated envelope along with a love letter addressed to Smith.

Tupac had sex on the brain when he was locked up, because his rare hand-drawn love letter to his girlfriend is hitting the auction block ... and the images are extra erotic!!!


Pac was probably humming "How Do U Want It" when he was drafting up this card from jail, because the drawings show him and his girl, Desiree Smith, GETTING IT ON!

Tupac gets kinda mushy with his words, telling Desiree he loves her and misses her deeply (pun surely intended).

Tupac's BMW Sold For $1.5 Million

The liquidation of Tupac Shakur's estate continues as it has been announced that the very vehicle he was shot in on September 7, 1996, is now up for sale for $1.5 million.

Photos, news clippings and video from the night Shakur was gunned down while riding shotgun alongside Suge Knight on the Vegas Strip, have forever encapsulated the image of the bloody scene. The BMW 750IL brings the historical value of the rap great's final days as it still bears the markings of bullets. Although the car has been restored, indentations remain on the license plate, and inside the door panels.

Records reveal that the Beemer has changed hands several times since the incident two decades ago. It was initially impounded and sold by the Vegas Police Department. Now it sits at an auction house with more than 90k miles on it. Just last year Tupac's vintage Hummer H1 sold for nearly $340,000.

Tupac vs Jay-Z - What Really Happened


Tupac didn’t have as big a feud with Jay Z as he did with The Notorious B.I.G., but the two were definitely at odds at one point.

2Pac's beef with JAY-Z started after 2Pac heard the rumor that JAY-Z was dissing the West Coast. After 2Pac recorded his verses for "Hit 'Em Up" he added a message at the end of the song.
He was dissing JAY-Z before he took it off the record.

2Pac wanted to hear JAY-Z' album "Reasonable Doubt" before he decided to diss him.
