Watch Footage Of Tupac Recording Bars For An Unreleased Album
People are pretty adamant that Tupac and his Death Row label mates were 100% anti-East Coast. There are literally countless disses from Pac against East Coast rappers to back this up.
Yet, prior to his death, Tupac was working on a new project titled One Nation, billed by Pac as a “East Coast/West Coast collaboration.” So maybe Tupac just hated a bunch of dudes on the East Coast because they were his competition and he didn't have a singular, burning hatred for every human on the East Coast.

The movie’s director Gobi M. Rahimi claims that he has a shitload of archival footage similar to the studio stuff above that he’ll be releasing. He’s asking for a $95,000 pledge to get the film put out, presumably for promotion and
But anyway, check out the Kickstarter page to see for yourself.
