“Like some artists can have 3 million fans and some artists can have a million fans,” he continued. “But a heartfelt artist’s million fans love him five times more than that other artist’s 3 million fans. When you get in that heartfelt category of Tupac, you special to people. That means you done put tears in people’s eyes. You special to people.”

“That man said he got over 50 cds wrote, double albums. Over 50 double albums,” he told Say Cheese TV. “My favorite one is a “Letter To Tupac.”
“…To where he like saluting Pac for passing the torch to him that’s it’s his world now. He ready,” he adds.
