Fly Quotes: Gobi Rahimi On Tupac Shakur

tupac“Tupac had a voice. The one thing he didn’t have was subtlety. If he had continued on the same path he had been on, someone who have taken him out. He as disruptive, and he was a threat. He was a threat to the establishment. I don’t know who took him out. But whoever took him out took out someone very important who could have dome a lot for African Americans and humanity as a whole.”
