“His legacy is more profound than people can imagine. I’ve been around the world and the legacy of Tupac is so deep. You have people believe he is still here. It gave people a train of thought. It may be a bully, but being a smart thug. Gangsters now I see walking around with laptops and smart. I attribute to him, because he was a thinker. He made people around her think, “he told The Boombox Broadus
Warren Griffin III, better known by his rap name Warren G, was also on the label Death Row back in the 1990s. He said it is difficult for him to listen to the music of 2Pac and fellow death row late cohort Nate Dogg.
“It’s hard for me to hear their music, because I knew them. I guess to be around them, so I kind of trouble a bit, but it was a good guy,” said Griffin.
