“My Ambitionz as a Writer”

— September 13th, 2006 —

Before I go into the piece… check out my interview with C-Ride over at AllHipHop.com.

I first got hip to Tupac when my dad had finally got a CD player in his car. He wanted to buy some CDs to listen to. It was him, my little sister, and myself and we went over to Camelot Music (now FYE) to cop some new music to listen to. He bought some Muddy Waters, Minnie Ripperton, a lot of Motown joints.

Across the rack from where he was standing at were two CDs — “Strictly 4 My N.I.G.G.A.Z.” and “All Eyez on Me.” My dad copped them both. I had to beg because of the parental advisory sticker, claiming that ‘Pac wasn’t going to affect my brain negatively.

He really didn’t do it so much negatively… but he did influence me. Anyone who knows me knows that I am not the greatest 2Pac fan ever on the face of this planet. But there is something about that man’s music that puts an edge to the things that you do… think about… speak upon. A song called, “Pain” — was a song that I bumped through my teenage years. It appeared on the “Above the Rim” soundtrack and was a raw ass song, ’nuff said. I mean… even though we’re celebrating the 10th Anniversary of his passing, I can remember where I was when he was shot and where I was when he died.

He was our “Twin Towers.” No disrespect to those who passed on September 11th, 2001 — because I was there for that as well. It’s just that in our hearts, Tupac was us. I’ll go into a little bit more detail later. Right now, the cast of Black and White are about to hit the stage and I got to start filming.
