Ronnie King, the producer, keyboard player and writer, who is heard on dozens of tracks that were recorded with the late Tupac Shakur, is still often emotional, as he contemplates the impact of their work together, seven years after his death. Among the many hits on which King collaborated with Tupac were classics that included “How Do U Want It” and “Hit ‘Em Up.” After attending the premiere of the new Tupac documentary, The Resurrection on November 4, King stated, “It meant a lot of me that Tupac’s mother, Afeni,was so gracious to me last night, and expressed her appreciation of my involvement with her son.”
He adds, “It was great to hear our music in the film, and to see how they placed it in there as the movie unfolded. The movement to the film was really great. Johnny J and I had seven or eight songs that were in it. Hearing the music last night brought back so many great memories of being in the studio with Tupac. We probably did seven tracks a day, because he was so quick. He was so fast because he knew his time was limited.”
“I feel really privileged to have been there, and to have been a part of Pac’s life,’ he reflects. King adds, “Thug Life, The Outlaws and Big Syke are a legacy that Pac left, as well, so people need to keep their eyes open.”
