Speaking to Fat Joe in an episode of his new podcast, the songstress explained that she “actually did know [Tupac]” and was with him in Las Vegas on the day of his murder. The rapper spoke to her about his desire to leave Suge Knight’s label for Jones’, asking her to go with him as Death Row seemed inappropriate for someone her age.
“He wanted to sign me to Quincy [Jones] when he was with Kidada, Quincy’s daughter, and he was gonna leave Death Row and go to sign with Quincy. He wanted me to go over there because he said that Death Row was not the place for kids,” she said. “[I was] 15. He died when I was 16. Right when my birthday was coming around, I just remember getting earrings in the mail from Death Row Records but Suge, of course, was already in jail.”
She continued, “My mom literally came and got us from Suge’s house because everybody got shot that night. My brother and [Pac] used to rap together in The Outlawz. We all drove to Vegas from LA. Pac was in the car with Kidada. Suge was in they car. My brother was in they car. We was in our car. We were kids though. He just didn’t like that, you know what I mean? It was just, like, a lot of drama around that time.”
