I want to 'give' this page to our fallen souljah Tupac Shakur. Seven years ago headlines of Tupac being shot changed our world; even more than those headlins could tell. No one knew that by the end of the week, our dear brother Tupac, would never smile for us again.
I am going to post a time line here. I really want all of you to leave a message--not to RapNewsDirect or Tupac-Online; but leave your thoughts on or for Pac.
