Tupac Shakur

In a recently unearthed letter from the late Tupac Shakur, he confirmed plans for the mythical One Nation album, which would feature Outkast and E-40, among others.

OkayPlayer posted a scanned copy of the handwritten letter, dating back to 1996 and addressed to Big Lock… which is confirmed by The Roots’ Questlove.

“I’m doing a record now called ONE NATION it’s a group album with me, Greg Nice, Buckshot, Smiff & Wesson, OutKast, The Outlawz, Scarface &E40,” Pac writes. “It’ll be out in the late summer.”

Pac was working regularly with The Outlawz and Smif-N-Wesson during that period, but was never able to complete the project, due to his death.
