My guess is Lil' Yachty is pretending he hasn't heard Tupac tracks to avoid having to admit that he too knows how bad he is as a rapper. #goat

MC Eiht says 2pac turned down the Sharif role in Menace II Society because the character wasn't gangster enough, or didn't have enough depth.

But deeper than that, the Hughes brothers sabotaged the deal to get him off of the movie because they didn't want to work with him, by not adding needed depth to the character.

Which then lead to the now infamous altercation between 'Pac and the Hughes brothers.

In 1993, Tupac Shakur was picked to play Sharif, a college-bound Muslim, in Menace II Society, however, after disputes with the directors about gaining a har...

"Going into detail about 2Pac's unorthodox creative process, QD3 continues: "Pac would sit there, look you in the eye and talk. He would tell you a story while at the same time writing a song about something else. That's how incredible he was." - QD3…

IBTimes UK takes a closer look at 2Pac's incendiary classic with the stories of three men involved in its production.

Were Death Row's head of security Reggie Wright, Jr. and Suge Knight's ex-wife responsible for the murder of Tupac and attempted murder of Suge in an attempt to take over the record label? Did former Death Row rapper Lil 1/2 Dead pull the trigger? Is that why Wright, Jr. ordered everyone not to carry weapons that night in Las Vegas?

That's the theory in a new book called "Tupac 187: The Red Knight" by Richard "RJ" Bond and Michael Douglas Carlin, based on evidence from decor...ated LAPD detective Russell Poole.

And a lot of it adds up. Tupac's bodyguard Frank Alexander always said it was Suge and Reggie. But Suge sitting next to 'Pac wouldn't make sense. However if you consider Suge's wife, Sharitha Knight, wanting him dead so she could take half of his money before the divorce, and Reggie always wanting to take over the label, this theory makes a lot of sense.

Let us know what you think below.
