Well wouldn’t that have been something
In recent months, handwritten letters from the late, great Tupac have been surfacing on the internet, and the most recent one directly alludes to a collaboration with Outkast, Scarface, E-40, Smif ‘N’ Wessun, Greg Nice, The Outlawz and Buckshot. Pac referred to a group album that he was working on with the aforementioned emcees as “One Nation,” and mentioned that it would be out in the late summer. The Notorious B.I.G. wasn’t spared, seeing as Pac made sure to mention that he would be “tearing B.I.G. a new ass,” before going into details about the project he was so excited about working on.
It wasn’t an open letter–Pac penned this one to a friend of his, “Big Lock”–and in it, the “California Love” rapper stressed the theme of unity and staying positive, which is line with the title of the proposed album. Read the letter in full below.
Sleep in peace, king.
