Tupac Month: Rappers Speak on the Nicknames Tupac Gave Them


Young Noble
I already had my name. He [Tupac] was like, “the name is perfect. It fits you.” I was the last dude to be in the group, seven members. ‘Pac felt like we was complete at that point being seven of us. My name was already Noble from the hood. I used to rap back in the day, but I used to spray paint a lot too. He tried to make me run with Noble Drew Ali. I never really ran with it, though. I was the only one who had my name like that. He was like your shit is perfect so I didn’t get the dictator name. I just got Noble, you feel me?

    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!!!
