A 1995, handwritten letter addressed to Chuck D found its way to Twitter this past weekend. During the early morning hours of June 22nd, Chuck D tweeted: “Letter from PAC but you should’ve seen mine”
In Tupac’s words, dated September 25, 1995:
I’m sure u know how highly respected & loved u R by me so your letter definitely warmed my heart. I was also touched by your offer and show of support. It will not go unnoticed. Thanx!

Thanks for posting this.
Nice handwriting PAC iam_joi instagram
I’LL WIPE MY A$$ WITH THAT LETTER!
Ur low and crazy!!!!!!!
Y? You outta toilet paper or something?
I wonder what made him post that
The bullshit broadway show that’s out.
How has chuck d remained under the radar, and untouched? He and flava. I would think that he would be public enemy no 1.
Flavor flav deflected ish
Chucks phone was always tapped. He mentioned this letter in one of his books. When gangsta rap was kicking Chuck was not a threat anymore.
Along with the above, it seems that Public Enemy’s (temporary?) distancing from Professor Griff after his comments about Jews deflected a lot of heat from the camp. As for Flav, he was/still is a crackhead, which shows that his will was weaker than the others/more susceptible to being controlled (As if those Coon-ass shows he did weren’t proof enough).
Can u move the priceline ad. It’s hard enuf to post already. Damn
heard the song the struggle continues with oftb, big syke, and one of the outlawz chuck would have fit in perfectly.
“I got Keys comimin from overseas, cost a nigga $220Gs. Imma street commando Nino for example. This lavish lifestyle is hard to handle,”- Picture Me Rollin. That’s my shit! And that beat! Ha Ha!
Wrong song lol
No it’s not, it’s the right song.
wrong the song the struggle continues was never released it has pac, big syke and oftb.
the song picture me rollin has 2pac, big syke and boss hogg from cpo.
pac and big syke made lots of songs together like good life, my closest roaddogs, whats next, and losin it.
and the original play ya cards right with pac, syke, outlawz and kci and jojo hate how keyshia cole remade it.
Yeah, Keyshia Cole remade it because she and her foster(?) brother, rapper Nutt-So, used to run with ‘Pac & Suge back then. She said she was in Vegas w/them the night ‘Pac was killed, but was in their hotel room because she was too young to go to the Casinos & clubs (She was 15). She also said that she used to get at ‘Pac all the time about him doing songs with everyone else but her, and that ‘Pac had promised her he would do a song with her the next day, but you know what happened there. Hence the ‘Playa Cards Right’ remake.
Chris I was just singing the song cause it popped up in my head. U know when somebody mention PAC and automatically one of the many favorite songs that PAC made comes to your mind and just bust out rapping because of a good lyricst.
Can u stop from going to downloading these stupid ass apps. This is the reason why I don’t post anymore.
Lanette is just so dam stoopid. I am a very fake chickenhead named Just_Joi.
HOW OLD ARE YOU? SEVEN?
Now, I know why everyone is anonymous these days. Sigh.
Joi, It’s what I call the C.B. syndrome. Have ya noticed a more MTO feel to this place in recent weeks? I never imagined that I would have to go anon either, but the behavior/actions of a handful of people caused me to not want to be a visible target.
I’m not worried about it. She will need at least two terms of English classes before her posts begin to sound like mine.
– Modern English Grammar
– Context of Writing
Hey! Maybe I will teach her how to write. All this practice, she will be literate soon!!!
R u serious? Dat iz a lot of 2’s and U’s b4 ppl were using “text lingo”! That’s Y “they” killed him ppl! PAC invented this!!! If he was alived he’d B the 1st billionaire! And his penmanship, it is perfectly slanted, he knew ya’ll HE KNEW!
You crazy man!!
That’s how rappers write. Esp if you wrote as much as tupac. A verse can take a whole a4 sheet of paper. I verse. That’s old skool rappers tho. Now seems like a whole song wouldn’t fill that.
Why don’t you look at some old Prince albums, dumbass. He wrote like that long before texting. If your sense of history was longer than six weeks, you might put that together. Get in the GAME son.
CHECK OUT THE 1999 ALBUM AS WELL AND TURN IT UPSIDE DOWN AND YOU GET EVIL AND YES LETS NOT FORGET THE CRESECENT MOON AND STAR SYNBOL TOO.
Tell 2 Pac , 2 Call me , 4 Real …
Style vs. Substance…The Blackman’s True Addiction! Pac had to mask his true self, niccas had changed. Imagine the possibilities minus the bulls**t???
For once I totally agree with you Tyrone. Tupac was a true renaissance man in every way. He could read and quote Shakespeare, appreciate fine art, write poetry and utilize his brain for excellence. But then he sadly hooked up with Suge(in order to get out of prison) and his gifts were derailed to a great degree.
What could have been!!
Kind of like the old posters here.
hehe yep 🙂
I totally agree with Throne and “Anon’s comment above. In many ways Pac had the mind of a great man. He got with Suge and it pushed him in the wrong direction.
I’ve always believed, and will always believe until proven wrong, that Suge had something to do with 2Pac’s death. At the same time 2Pac was going wrong way before he even met Suge. Let’s not forget he was in jail for rape when Suge bailed him out. And I agree that he had a brilliant mind
Just my opinion but I think the girl that hollered rape was sent in by the record company to pull that stunt on pac so it appeared that suge was saving the day by bailing him out. Pac didnt have to rape no woman those heffas was throwing the P—y at Pac. The whole thing was a set up from the beginning the government shut that down through the record company. Just a thought!
the girl sucked pacs dick in front of everybody at the clun he met her Haitian jack introduced pac to the girl.
Ding, ding, ding- haitian jack introduced her to him.
Pac “seemed” like the type of dude that would stop quick if a girl acted like she didn’t want it.
Her ass would get thrown out, but not raped. Of course, I didn’t know him and I wasn’t there.
Hell yeah@Just_Joi. ‘Pac even said as much on the classic ‘I Get Around:’
‘…You don’t know me, ya just met me, ya won’t let me/Well if couldn’t have it, why ya sweatin’ me?’ lol
And I definitely agree the rape was a set-up.
Lol. One of those dudes you can’t even scream no during sex. Next thing you know, he putting his jeans on. His socks already on though- cause he don’t never take them off. Lol.
Pac was too busy trying to prove to everybody he was a thug.
deathrow was negative.
I meant Tyrone’ . For me there hasn’t been another like him. Notice I said For Me personally. The fact that Pac found an understanding in many things that a young kid growing up in the ghetto wasn’t exposed to (normally), I found that to be something fantastic about him. He truly was a Renaissance man in My opinion.
No one can compare to Pac EVER. He was IT for me too, I still bump his shit like it’s 1996!! I know with all the world is going through Pac wouldn’t shined a light on it! We wouldn’t have Wayne, nikki, drake etc…
don’t know about that.
pac would have probably quit rapping around 2000 and did more films.
nicki would have made it since females selling sex is ca high demand in the music industry.
drake would have been a one hit wonder.
Drake would be Rockwell.
This will probably never get picked up by mainstream media the way his “last dying words” were broadcast by the cop.
TUPAC and CHUCK D a couple of the greatest influence in HIP-HOP, when MUSIC by BLACK PEOPLE reached it ZENITH in the 1990’s
Pac had no choice but to sign with suge nobody was crazy enough to sign him but suge. new york tried to carry him..I feel when he got wit suge his anger had already got the best of him have u ever been betrayed by your friends and left for dead?? Didn’t think so pac didn’t realize he was a pawn on a bigger chess board until the end of his days. he also thought suges connections could keep him protected.
If suge killed pac what did he gain??? Puffy bitch ass killed pac. suge killed biggie out of retaliation. orlando anderson was the triggerman in pacs muder. Please you are confusing the young people sayin suge killed pac while puffy is the one rolling in all the money .puffy was the industries golden boy then and still is sucking clive davis dick when ray j can’t beat him to it (whitney houston) who yall thought gave her that bad batch……..
suge and puffy probably made a deal suge told puff if I get rid of my boy you got to kill your boy.
That’s horrible. I hope not. Damn.
Yes they did chris. A dead star on ur label is like a robot working for free
which was why suge didn’t give a damn about releasing anybody elses album out on deathrow he was eating off pac’s posthumous releases.
poor biggie didn’t record enough material for puff to use.
snoop seeing what suge was putting out pac’s unreleased musuc stopped recording for deathrow after his unreleased album the doggumentary was made and snoop made no more songs for deathrow.
The news was talking about all of MJs recent success. Shit made me wanna kill somebody- i cant imagine how La Toya feels.
what did suge gain the rights to all pacs unreleased songs and suge made millions off it.
with pac dead and makaveli selling records suge cared about nobody else on deathrow which was why everybody else left.
whites had to bring suge and pac dowen a notch they was getting 2 powerful.
pac talking about starting a childfrens center, running for president, and deathrow east, and working with alternative rock artists.
What’s up with the timing? First, the phone call audio released by Monster Cody a couple of weeks ago and now this letter released by Chuck D? Is something happening that I/we don’t know about?
PAcs birthday just passed.
It’s because of that Broadway show that is still in its tryout run. I heard a NY Times critic say this morning that he doubted the show will make it past 2-3 weeks before closing. That’s a shame. He said the lead was weak.
What Broadway show?
It’s called “Holler If Ya Hear Me”. You can Google it for more info.
Google is ur friend. Life and times of PAC on Broadway. Lame as f*ck
Did you see it? It’s not about the life of Tupac. It’s about his music and the interpretation of it.
whit was gonna die sooner or later anyway.
whit was a drug addict and she wasn’t gonna stop smoking.
whit had health problems.
whit wanted to die she was going around telling everybody she about to go to heaven and meet jesus and shes going to heaven AND ITS GOING BE WONDERFUL.
WHIT WAS GIVING HINTS SHE WANTED TO DIE REMINDS ME OF HEAVENS GATE.
pac and biggie both flirted with death.
they both made numerous songs about homicide, suicide and talwes of dead homies and premature death.
pac on numerous songs said he was cursed and saying he wasn’t going to see 30.
Chris, I believe he did say that. If you looks through history it seems that all the greatest artists, in the truest sense of the word, did die young.
Ppl who talk too much die young PAC was sayin he was startin a new political party. They couldn’t wait to kill his ass.
Cause they were thrown off the freedom train. Not at 46 tho!
pac and big both put oout bad vibes in their music pac and big both dabbled with satan aS WELL.
HOW MANY DEATH THREEATS PAC MADSE ABOUT THE BAD NOY CAMP HE MADE NUMEROUS SONGS TALKING BOUT KILLING BIG, NAS, JIGGA, MOBB DEEP.
A SHAME PAC’S GONE AND ALL HIS ENEMIES MOVED ON.
PUFF, NAS, JAY Z, LL COOL J, DRE, WILL AND JADA HAS MOVED ON MADE MORE MONEY AND BECAME CEOPS IN THEIR OWN RIGHT.
WHERES PAC AND BIG.
LOOK AT PUFFY, WYCLEF, MOBB DEEP AND P;AC HATED THESE DUDES BUT THEY MADE MORE MONEY WHEN HE DIED WHETHER IT WAS OFF OF HIM OR NOT.
SUGE STILL EATING OFF PAC.
snoop in his book claims he can’t tell the readers what happened to pac but he says that pac is dead amd that’s all we need to know.
daz gave more info saying pac was kjilled because he switched from crip to blood but daz was known to run off at the mouth when e was smoking crack but daz blasted pac and left eye after they was dead pretty bad.
Black love is under siege. Since the late 70’s, the “hood” has been (is) systematically flooded with drugs and guns. The men were sent to prison for feminization and and a prison record (financial/vote suppression) while the women were given working opportunity (financial redistribution = black women more likely to buy shoes and bags = black money spent vs black money saved) aka divide and conquer + liquidation of black money = black community advancement grinds to a hault. The women were distracted by the media sponsored feminist movement and sided with white women against (black) men, not realizing that “black” is the real enemy. Now, our black women have nurtured hatred for men for decades. In particular black women no longer feel that black men are good enough. Black women always brag about surpassing the black man (a very straight admission that the black man is beneath them). The list of what they WONT do for a N166A is longer than the list of what they will do for a N166A. Subconciously, the black woman blames the black man for everything wrong in her life. For example, if a black woman is single, she says its because “N166as dont ackrite” instead of looking in the mirror or hitting the gym. If her children are unruly, she says its because of the black mans absence vs the black womans presence. The black man is media bombarded with caucasion images that grow to be accepted as societies most desired and falls for it. Black women have been brainwashed by the feminist movement so that they desire wealth as opposed to (black) love. Starting from the very beginning, a man has to pay for her attention through dating (caucasion men think black women are easy, just add money). A man pays and pays and pays. If he has no money, he has no woman. Woman are being conditioned to sell their bodies to the highest bidder. Fast forward to adult life. A black man finally makes money and he feels he has a choice to make. Date (pay) the (black) women who rejected him because he was beneath them or move on. MOST black men stick with black women. SOME hold grudges and move on. Its all academic to me. Please know that the powers that be know these things. The black man and woman are the common enemy as being rightful heirs to the throne of egypt. The plan is to keep up the distractions so we do not claim our rightful heritage to wealth beyond measure. Question… if the king (pharoah) and queen of Kemmit (name was changed to Egypt) were black…. the citizens were black… Moses was black… the prisoners (slaves) were black…. why is rabbi white? Were you ever realize who you truly are, their infrastructure crumbles because how can you/anyone respect a man/community who claims another mans/community’s heritage for financial gain? An entire religious community’s religious (financial) life depends on a very serious lie, the oppression of the people whos heritage he/they stole, and the ignorance of the victims.
Bro where can I cop yo book? Brilliant capsulization.
VERY PROFOUND READ!
1. Even a broke ass nigga with no job aint loyal
2. If you not making as much money as i am dont be mad
3. Black women been siding with Feminists since Sorjourner Truth. That’s due to them f*ckin our minds up in slavery.
4. Lately, black men have come back to black women cause its a novelty to see a black family.
Not mad at 4.
It’s something like 89% of married black men marry black women. They not getting married bc men dont propose broke.

dre never dissed the east coast cept tim dog.
snoop, and the dogg pound dissed the east but pac took it to the extreme it went beyond music and lyrics.
when the dogg pound was shot at and it was found out biggie ordered the hit it was over.
check out 2pac’s unreleased ny 87 to hear kurupt’s version of the story pac’s verse at the end was terrifying.
