Tupac in The Source Magazine.
"It took countless run-ins with the “just-us” system, a couple of movies and a few hit songs but Tupac finally ended up on the cover of The Source. He was just 23 years old at the time but was sitting on top of the world. And he was violence free at the time because he hadn’t been shot in New York yet (that happened in November 1994). After re-reading the article, I see a person who was young, cocky and just didn’t give a f**k. With his energy and charisma, he was finally coming into his own. Unfortunately, I pretty much ignored Tupac musically until Me Against the World dropped in ’95, which happens to be my favorite ‘Pac album. And, like many others, I didn’t actually buy any of his CD’s until the week he died. Taking a look at the cover photo makes me wonder if he had any idea that just two years later, he’d be gone.
