Lil Wayne Raps With… Tupac?!

Lil Wayne tct01 Lil Wayne Raps With… Tupac?!Lil Wayne is expected to begin his prison term a month from today—should we even be surprised by the leak of a new track before he heads to the big house? Via KarenCivil, Wayne’s “That’s What N****s Do,” directly references the one-year prison sentence he’s facing in connection with a weapons charge. Weezy declares: “They wanna lock me up and throw away the key… I wanna pop ‘em up and throw away the heat.” But the most noteworthy thing about the track isn’t Wayne’s mention of real-life events. It’s the song’s featured guest rapper: 2Pac.

Weezy doesn’t sample a 2Pac song, but instead makes use of a quote from the late rapper’s 2002 DVD, Thug Angel: The Life of an Outlaw. In the quote that repeats throughout the track, Tupac—whose career was similarly disrupted by a stint behind bars—discusses “keeping it real” even as he tastes mainstream success in the music business (full quote can be seen here at 4:17):

“I’m gonna stay black. I’m not gonna act white cause ya’ll want me to act white. I’m gonna buy a Benz cause that’s what n****s do. You understand me? I’m gonna smoke weed…I’m gonna pack a gat… I’m gonna get drunk because that’s what n****s do. You understand me? I’m not gonna change just cause motherf*ckers got money.”
