Just when it was looking as though every unreleased Tupac track had been un-unreleased, footage has emerged of the hip hop icon preparing some new material for an album that never saw the light of day. What’s even more curious is that the intended release, titled One Nation, would have seen the feuding East Coast and West Coast scenes combine for a collaboration.
The footage is currently being compiled by Gobi M. Rahimi, who filmed Tupac’s final week in 1996. In the below clips, you will see Tupac welcoming Duck Down members Buckshot and Dru Ha out the front of the studio, before telling the camera directly that “it’s gonna be an East Coast-West Coast collaboration”, aimed to bring harmony to the hip hop community.
Somehow One Nation managed to avoid the posthumous release schedule, and it’s more than likely to stay that way. Rahimi is aiming to complete the documentary, titled 7 Dayz in the near future. In the bottom video, Rahimi even gives some insight into Tupac’s death in Las Vegas.
