Omar Epps Talks About Seeing 2Pac The Night He Was Shot


(AllHipHop News) Omar Epps and Tupac Shukar will forever be linked thanks to the classic Hip Hop drama Juice. The two actors’ respective characters faced off against each other in Ernest R. Dickerson’s 1992 motion picture.

Epps sat down with Larry King Now to promote his new ABC series Resurrection. During the interview the 40-year-old New York native discussed the last time he saw Pac before he was shot in 1996.

“I saw him that night actually. I saw him literally half an hour before he was shot,” said Epps. “We happened to be staying at the same hotel – hadn’t seen him in years. We hugged. I asked, ‘How’s your mother doing?’ Everything was great.”

When Epps woke up the next morning he found out that 2Pac had been shot.

  • Reblogged this on HUEY mix wit RILEY.

  • I love Juice. One of my favorite movies of all-time. I don’t really have the time (or desire) to watch this interview, but I think it’s cool that he saw Pac right before he passed. The world is a strange place.

      It’s actually a good interview and there’s no reason not to believe that he didn’t run in to 2Pac the night he got shot. People just mad they ain’t got a real 2Pac story; this ain’t some “I saw ‘Pac from my hotel room window but by the time I got to the lobby his car had left, if I could shout louder I could have saved his life” type ish. It was also Larry King that brought ‘Pac up, Omar didn’t even dwell on the subject.

    He always used to remind me of a young Wesley Snipes, for me he’s surpassed Wesley so far as acting abilities go.
