In Memory of Tupac

“Although Al Sharpton says that Tupac “didn’t want to be a role model and a leader,” he was still sensitive to his impact on the youth with whom he interacted. After doing a show in Seattle, the van that Tupac and several others groups were traveling in was stopped by the police. When the police were distracted by a mob of fans, Tupac sought to “make the best of our time,” Big Boy remembers. “So Pac pulls out a joint, and he was about to put it to his mouth, and there was this little girl [who saw him].” After spotting her, Tupac pulled the little girl close to him. “Listen,” Tupac said, “you just caught me doing something real bad, something that I shouldn’t be doing. But this is a secret between me and you… . Don’t tell anybody. This is how you got me and I got you.” Big Boy laughs as he recalls the little girl’s “just sitting there and just looking at him, and just nodding, Okay, okay.”
