Tupac Month: Rappers Speak on the Nicknames Tupac Gave Them


Tupac Shakur was a man of many ideas. When forming the Outlawz in 1995, the prolific MC picked aliases for each member in the collective. Kurupt and Daz, who worked closely with ‘Pac on All Eyez on Me, and Buckshot, who recorded with Shakur for the One Nation album, also got nicknames. XXL caught up with the remaining Outlawz members, Kurupt, Daz and Buck to get the back-story behind the nicknames ‘Pac gave them.

    XXL should be pumping this information about Makaveli giving everybody their names. There should be a video with explanations from all the artists. Pac was on some other stuff. It speaks volumes that some of the same people 2pac picked as aliases for his crew are dead now (Saddam) or being ousted (Khadafi). Thats what happens when your on a hitlist. OUTLAW!!!
