Reasons why I love YouTube # 74

Today marks the 20 year anniversary of 2Pac going back to the essence hotfooting it to Cuba to live in Lord Lucan's villa with D.B Cooper and him from the Manic Street Preachers - time flies when Nas vs Jay-Z fanboys, KanYesplainers, Drake-dickriders, and Young Thug thinkpiecers have long since replaced 2Pac conspiracists as the rap-internet's most irritating fanbase, right? Here's 'Pac's 1994 Source Awards performance of Out On Bail where him and his crew bumrushed the stage right before Q-Tip made a speech; an iconic moment in rap history which most of us had only ever heard murky rumours of before the invention of the 'Tube:


Thug Life: Volume 1 gotta be a top 5 most noteworthy rap album to get its original track list butchered by sample clearance red tape. To wit, Out On Bail was supposed to be its first single but ended up gettin' shelved, as did its title track and my own personal favourite unreleased 'Pac joint F*ck All Y'all.

Sux that Dru Down didn't actually get a verse on there tho because he was gassin' like Mr. Methane in '96.
