2Pac Up Sticks

posted by on April 21 at 12:44 PM


Tupac Shakur is alive, in a drugstore gaming section. Not so odd. He knew drugs / had game.

Part of me though, is vexed that someone could leave their 2Pac’s Greatest Hits cassette behind while shopping for Pick Up Sticks. I mean, to abandon your Makaveli? Every time you put that tape in, Pac spat flow for you. He gave you the ability to thug. You’re just going to leave him there on the mini checkers?

Another part of me understands completely why the cassette was left there. In “Strictly 4 My N.I.G.G.A.Z.” Tupac says, “If you live up pick up my shit or I’ll be back doin stick-ups.”

See, these sticks and shit were picked up, the tape was put down. It’s a sign. A flux. Pac doesn’t have to come back now. Someone plays this game. A simple and solemn tribute.

I tried to thug. I just couldn't pull it off. Thank you 2Pac.

Does Uno work? Is there a Pac connection there?

I always preferred a 6 pack to 2Pac. But I was sorry when he got smoked, though.

2Pac is very much dead. I am sorry ::(

That is very strange, Trent. I laugh when I picture you wandering into the toy section thinking about that. You are incredible.
