Sway Remembers Tupac Shakur 20 Years After His Death [Video]

Shade 45 host Sway Calloway remembers the last interview he did with his friend Tupac Shakur a few months before his death. Sneaking onto the set of Tupac’s video “How Do You Want It”, Sway made his way past droves of press and “big-ass, hulkish-sized” security guards. Ducking and running military-style in an effort to remain unseen, Sway eventually made his way to Tupac’s trailer for the interview. As Sway knocked on the door, he could hear Tupac holding court. Inside, the rapper’s captive audience included R&B artist Jon B. playing some instrumentals for him; the lead singers of Jodeci, K-Ci and JoJo, just hanging out; and of course, some attractive women.
