Mopreme Shakur, rapper and older step-brother to the late Tupac Shakur, recently sat down with VladTV and spoke about what drove ‘Pac to work so hard in the studio and what it means to hear his music today.
“It makes it easier to deal with him not being here,” Mopreme responded when asked about how he feels when he hears 2Pac’s music. “You smile because he did everything he said he was going to do.”
“It was just a shame we lost him so early,” Mopreme continued. “But I think in the spiritual realm – his inner clock – he knew he was gonna go early.”
