Remembering 2Pac (June 16, 1971 - September 13, 1996)

Spotted at VIBE (They're Baaaaack!)

It's been 13 years since the untimely death of Tupac Amura Shakur (aka 2Pac) 0n the 13th day of September 1996. Despite his absence, 2Pac remains an iconic figure in hip-hop. VIBE online went into the vaults and dug up this previously unreleased interview clip from May 1996. The late rapper talks about where he would like to be in 2016 and why his allegiance with the west coast (2Pac was originally born in New York) shouldn't be a big deal since he has always acknowledged his birth home.

Rest in Power (R.I.P.) 2Pac! You are inspiring the youth.

New Video: The Kid Daytona (F/ Bun B) -- "Air Born"

Notes from the director Derek Pike:

"Last week I shot the 'Air Born' video for The Kid Daytona featuring Bun B. The beat which is produced by 6th Sense has this real mellow floaty vibe to it so I knew I wanted to shoot the majority of this video with someone or something floating in midair. Since shooting in outerspace wasn't in the budget, I had to settle for NYC. Luckily, Daytona knew someone here on earth that could defy gravity for us, Entertainers Basketball Classic star Anthony 'Africa' Pimble.

We shot the whole video at a little park downtown, no permits. Aside from having to work around screaming kids at camp, and a basketball leagues scheduled game everything went surprisingly smooth. Daytona and Bun B are two of the nicest and most laid back artists I have ever worked with. Shout outs to the Three/21 fam Rik [Cordero], Nancy and Steve, Jamal, Owen, Jordan at Sneaktip, Dan, Evan, and of course Daytona, Bun B, 6th and Africa."
