The Federal Bureau of Prisons has stated that T.I. is expected to finish his 11 month prison sentence on September 29th. He was locked back up on November 1st 2010 for violating his federal probation. Let’s see if he can get his music career going again instead of getting locked up again.
Check out this rare footage of 2Pac’s Becoming Clean photo shoot shot by photographer David LaChapelle. This was taken following 2Pac’s release from prison. Also check out an interview of David discussing the photo shoot!
DM: I feel that a lot of your work emphasises on beauty in people, regardless of colour or size. One of my favourite pieces of your work is “Becoming Clean” with Tupac Shakur amongst others. How was it like work with him?
DL: Tupac was great, he was very sensitive and is truly a good person. I wrote to his mum when he died and she sent me flowers and gave me his last song, “Ghetto Gospel.” When we did the shoot, he had just come out of prison and every shot has a reason, it’s never random, so this was the idea of the photo shoot, him becoming clean. He had given this interview when he was still in prison and he really opened up and was so honest. I had read it and thought it was so truthful so for the work I did with him, there was this idea of washing away and rebirth. And we did another shoot where he posed as a slave on a cotton field. They traced rapping and rhyming to “call and repeat” during slavery time in sugar cane and cotton fields to pass the time. It’s on the Hotel Lachapelle book. Tupac came to the shoot 2 hours early, which was very unusual for a rapper. So I wasn’t ready for the shoot and he didn’t care. He reminded me of my black friends whom I went to art schools with, he was so cool, open-minded and chill. He wasn’t judgemental. Then later on, I found out that he had gone to an art school. He left behind a big bag of socks and underwear because he had just come out from prison and never picked it up. He died shortly after. I still wear his socks sometimes (laughs).
Ain’t no stopping this kid! He just released a mixtape now he is planning on releasing his upcoming EP titled On & On next Tuesday! This is the self titled track produced by ID Labs off the EP.
Doesn’t sound like a Recovery throw away track but who really knows these days. A lot of unreleased music has been leaking lately not just from Eminem, but I ain’t complaining.
