2Pacs "Dear Mama" klang eigentlich anders: Hier die Originalversion!


Vor wenigen Tagen verstarb 2Pacs Mutter Afeni Shakur im Alter von 69 Jahren. Ein ehemaliger Wegbegleiter und Produzent von 2Pac hat nun die eigentliche Version des Tracks Dear Mama veröffentlicht, den die Raplegende für seine Mutter geschrieben hatte. 

DJ King Assasin erklärt in ein paar Zeilen, warum diese erste Version des Tracks nicht rauskam. Es fehlte wohl die Genehmigung für ein Sample und so musste Dear Mama ein neues Gewandt verpasst werden. 

“The original version of Dear Mama’was far different than the version that was released, as far as the hook was constructed. Originally, the hook was a sample of a song from the legendary rapper and friend of both of ours named Yo-Yo, from Ice Cube’s Lench Mob. The sample was ‘Wouldn’t be a damn thang without a woman,’ which was taken from the original song from Ice Cube’s This Is A Man’s World,’with the scratching done, of course, by yours truly DJ King Assassin. The day after we had finished up on everything we were in Echo Sound in L.A. when Tupac comes in the studio very upset and proceeds to explain to us that we had to take out Yo-Yo’s part because a person by the name of Pat Charbonet would not give us the clearance to use that part in the song, so we had no choice but to take it out and that’s where even the Richard Pryor excerpt, which you will hear, is completely off the released version of the song."

EDIT: Der Song wurde mittlerweile entfernt.
