Recently F.E.D.S. magazine had an interview with Keisha Morris. Keisha Morris is the ex-wife of rap legend Tupac Shakur. The interview has been been published in F.E.D.S. Magazine Vol #2 Issue #5.
Before we go into this story let us describe this young woman. Keisha is a 27 year-old woman who has a Bachelors of Science in Criminal Justice graduated from John Jay College and also has a Masters in Education.
She's a strong black woman who knows the meaning of standing on your own. She was born Keisha Morris and has a title and last name that makes her a part of rap history, Shakur. Not boasting of it, she says, "I'm not proud of the things he did, but it was my job to stand by and support him."
A Bronx native and proud of it, she enjoys sports, reading and talking to adults and children about their problems. She says you have to sometimes have been through or seen issues to explain them. We thought we would be interview a bandana wearing female who hates everyone but herself, cursing and smoking weed. Instead she was very well mannered. It took us some time to get her to relax.
Tupac was a dream that turned into a nightmare. One day he was there for her to love then he was gone. "We were just about to try again," says Keisha who doesn't smoke weed, cigarettes, or drink. She was just the opposite of Tupac.
F.E.D.S.: What's up Keisha! You have a lot to talk about, huh?
K: Yeah, I have a lot of things to talk about. I want to thank F.E.D.S. magazine for giving me the opportunity to express my feelings. I did this article for personal issues dealing with me.
F: Tupac chose you to be his wife?
K: Yes, whether people want to accept it or not. I want the credit that is owed to me. I want to thank Suge Knight for remembering and acknowledging my position.
F: You were married to a part of history. How did you meet Tupac?
K: We met in June of 1994. We were both at a party that Puffy was throwing at a place called the Capitol. He came into the club, I saw him and spoke to him for a brief moment and walked away. I saw him a month later at the Tunnel another club in Manhattan. He came over to me and told me how he had been thinking about me ever since. I was very surprised. He remembered everything from when we first met. He even remembered the clothing I was wearing. Then he asked if he could take me out.
Initially, I was scared because I didn't know where he was coming from. I wanted to know "Why me?" out of everybody else. He said that he never had a woman treat him like I treated him, which was not impressed. I did not make a big deal out of him. He was attracted to that.
F: What was your first date like?
K: First of all I was a nervous wreck. He wanted me to meet him at his hotel and I was like "Oh no!" Me me in broad daylight with a lot of people around. I was very hesitant, but I went anyway. We went to the Chelsea Movie Theater to see Forest Gump and then we ate dinner around the corner in an Italian restaurant. He wanted to see Forest Gump because he read for the part of "Bubba." I was in total shock, I couldn't believe who I was on a date with.
F: What album did he have out at the time?
K: He was in the studio at the time recording Me Against the World.
F: Did you go to the studio with him?
K: Yes. He recorded in both Los Angeles and New York. I used to go with him to Unique Studio.
F: Did he tell you about the shooting?
K: Well, he called me on the phone to tell me that he'd been shot and to call his mother.
F: After he called what did you do?
K: He was talking fine, so I continued at first, but I made the necessary calls to his family.
F: Did you have a relationship with his mother?
K: Yeah we had a relationship. In the beginning she was happy Tupac was involved with a woman like me, but after we got serious our relationship became distant.
