Happy Birthday, Tupac

16 Jun

Obviously, NSFW language in the first video.

The second is the source material for the sample.

The first song’s a posthumous, patched-together, pseudo-tribute to ‘Pac rather than a fully stitched studio work. And, for me, it encapsulates his poetic side perfectly. There’s obviously far more to the man than this, but, well, I’m not trying to delve into that today.

Tupac would have been 38 today.

    He died at 25. Couldn’t even hit the Cobain/Joplin/Morrison Plateau.

    For perspective: Weezy’s turning 27 in September.

    (And, because you’re here and you care: I may turn Sedgwick into a daily wrap-up of stuff that dropped, do occasional album reviews, and do more Quarter Pole-type stuff. There will also, hopefully, be longer features.)
