2Pac - The Lost Prison Interview (1995) [Trust Nobody]

2Pac Lost Interview 1995 In Prison. A larger than life legend in the rap world, Pac has been the subject of numerous documentaries that range from Oscar-nominated to cash grabs. The new one, entitled ‘Tupac Uncensored and Uncut: The Lost Prison Tapes,’ takes a novel approach by letting the fallen star speak directly and from the heart. Too often, it’s hard to get a sense of Pac because the story and theories surrounding the happenings in 1996 often overshadow his actual career and character. ‘The Lost Prison Tapes’ is based around a never-before-seen interview that the rapper did from the Clinton Correction Facility in 1995 while he was locked-up on a s3xual a**ault conviction. During this time, which was before he joined Death Row, Pac was ferociously devouring books like Sun Tzu’s ‘Art of War’ and writing a screenplay entitled ‘Live 2 Tell.’ Pac’s interview delves heavily into his relationship with his mother, his intention to become an uplifting figure and his theories about the infamous 1994 shooting at Quad Recordings where he was nearly killed. I know many readers of this site are rap fans so I figured many would appreciate this rare video. It is a 40 minute uncut interview with Tupac Shakur during the time he was incarcerated. This might remind people of the time when artists had something to say and had views about issues. Tupac was about 23 years old in this video. One can only imagine the potential influence he could have had on the world as his mind matured and his views evolved. This might explain why there was such a massive FBI file about him…and probably why he got taken away from us. As he said himself in this interview: “They’ll start taking out anyone who is trying to do something positive for the community”. What can be more positive than making “being smart” a cool thing? According to our unofficial count, this is the fifteenth documentary made about Tupac Shakur since the happenings in 1996. That’s more documentaries than albums, including posthumous output, if you’re keeping count. When I look at the latest trailer of the new Tupac Shakur biopic, All Eyez On Me, where it showed the scene of Pac’s arrest for “jay-walking” in 1991, it instantly reminds me of the videos of police incidents where innocent black people are targeted. Clearly, things haven’t changed much since then.
