"A Photo Tribute to Tupac"

The day he went over the edge

The article explains that Tupac opened with the track “Bury Me a G" but midway through the song, his mic started fading in and out so 2pac was running around trying to get his mic to work. Finally, he got a working mic and half way through the song, 2pac stopped the show for a “moment of silence” for the 14-year old girl killed in Chicago by an 11-year old boy who was later killed himself. But before the “silence” began 2pac yelled out: “You better stop killing those babies or else I’ll murder you myself!”

Tupac then started yelling "I taught you all about harming those babies. Keep it up and I’ll murder all you muthafuckas.” The audience started throwing coins and gang signs. Chaos was erupting all around and shots were fired but luckily no one was hit. Police started entering the arena and Mecca security tried to guide the people out so they wouldn't get trampled.
