I wonder how puffy felt about this? In his new book, Original Gangstas: The Untold Story of Dr. Dre, Eazy-E, Ice Cube, Tupac Shakur, and the Birth of West Coast Rap author Ben Westhoff detail that

“People forget that Tupac was already blowing up, already a pretty big star when Biggie was just kind of getting started,” he says. “Tupac kind of took Biggie under his wing and tried to teach him everything he knew, kind of took him to school. Biggie’s career wasn’t taking off as fast as he hoped it would. And so he actually asked Tupac if he would be his manager, and Tupac said, ‘No I think you should stick with Puffy and he’ll get you where you need to be.’”

The interview could be heard here in on “Murder Master Music Show”


Only if this dream would have came true hip hop would be in a very different place right now.
