Yo-Yo Reminisces About Kissing 2Pac & Dreams Of 'Pac Running For Office Today
Tupac "2Pac" Amaru Shakur would have turned 47 today! Time flies and it seems yesterday that he passed away, but the dynamic rapper left a huge impression on the rap game, his fans and those close to him. One of those people is Compton born female rapper, Yo-Yo.
Back in 1990 before 2Pac became a solo artist he was a back-up dancer for Oakland, California rap group Digital Underground. It was on tour that 2Pac and Yo-Yo formed a close relationship, the former was on tour with her mentor Ice-Cube. They eventually started dating and although their relationship became more like brother and sister over the years still kept in touch, until the day he died in Las Vegas on September 13, 1996.
Yo-Yo recently told HipHopDX about her time with the "Me Against The World" legend.
“What made us special … I love every bit of Hip Hop he had in his body. He was way too cool in regards to politics and social issues, and he was so Hip Hop with it at a time when people wasn’t really diggin’ Hip Hop. I love him. When we kissed, it was magical.”
Yo-Yo recalls the shock she felt upon hearing that 2Pac had died from gunshot wounds six days after being shot in Las Vegas. “I just shook my head and cried,” she recalls. “I said, ‘Damn ‘Pac.’ I was just in disbelief. Fuck! I though he would live forever wit his bad ass.”
Yo-Yo remains close to 2Pac's sister and sometime she dreams about what he'd be doing right now had he been alive. “Who knows, he’d prolly be running for office right beside me,” she says. Although 2Pac is gone, his legacy lives on in a big way and Yo-Yo says she feels his spirit "all the time."
