  • This nigga is lying!!!!!!!! He a snake!!!!! This is what Pac said in the unedited Kevin Powell interview in 95

    "So you’re saying everyone from your past is cut off?

    Except Treach, [designer] April Walker, a few people. The ones that stay true to me now. And if they my friends, then please don’t let them get upset. If they my friends, stay my friends. But like Karl Kani, I did a whole photo shoot for him, I didn’t ask for no money. I said, 'Karl, all I want is the clothes. When you get the clothes, send them to me.' He didn’t send me shit. He sent me shit from three seasons ago. I had to go to the store and buy them, you know what I’m saying?"
