Why waste scrolling time when we can give you two of the biggest videos from this weekend in one post. Here’s both “R.I.P.” from Young Jeezy ft. 2 Chainz and “Believe it” from Rick Ross and Meek Mill (shot in Las Vegas). Both typical rap videos but these songs are clearly the best part. Check em out below…
R.I.P to the late Donda West, this video was uploaded to Youtube, over a year ago, but it was seemed to resurface over the blogosphere over the last week or so. Kanye and his mom are seen rapping a verse of his back in the day. Looks like it may even date back to the pre-college dropout days. Crazy to see this and where Kanye has gone from then til now.
What many know to be Pac’s first verse is this one. There is a story behind this song and how it came to be also if you do some research. Still one of the dopest songs ever. Digital Underground and 2Pac! Pac actually used to be a dancer for digital underground before he began his rap career.
This song is a classic summertime jam. With summer winding down, you know we had to post this one first. 2Pac in rare form in this video. Shout to the Digital Underground!
Today is a special day in hip-hop as it’s the anniversary of one of, if not the greatest to ever do it passing away, Mr. Tupac Amaru Shakur. September 13th was the day in 1996 that the hip-hop world changed forever. Pac died from a gunshot wound in Las Vegas, Nevada 7 days prior after a Tyson fight. Although there have been many rumors regarding the reason behind the shooting, the person behind it, and even whether or not Tupac is actually dead, the fact remains that his legacy is unmatched, and he is dearly missed in hip-hop.
Back in April of this year, Coachella commissioned a company to create a hologram version of Tupac to perform alongside Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre, which gained huge media attention, as the first time we’ve seen Tupac perform in over a decade. It was unprecedented, and crazy to see in action, looking and sounding just like Makaveli himself.
Today we’ll be dropping some videos from Pac throughout the day, along with some of our favorite moments.
