Sure he was down with the Outlawz, but it got to the point, there type of gangsta rap was rubbing off on him.
Honestly think to this day the Crips killed 2Pac, With him jumping a Crip, and already reppin MOB Pirus, just gave them reason to kill him. It's just society, like to portray celebrities as almighty gods so that when they killed it's automatically some big conspiracy theory behind it, like Illuminati. Like Pac didn't even believe in Illuminati. Killuminati the album was meant to kill the hype machine about them.
Agreed, at least he was at peace. Can't stress how many times you listen to songs after the shooting and wonder if he himself just wants to die.
You said you're 14. You don't need to tell me what people were wearing in the 90's. I was there, LOL.
NOBODY was still wearing "snapbacks" by 96. That's not limited to Pac. We were rocking fitteds by then, which Pac wore many times too. By you're right about the red, like the red LA hat he wore in the To Live and Die in LA video.
The Outlawz followed Pac, not the other way around.
