It's a shame that he had to take the easy way out instead of face his problems

I don't think he committed suicide by jumping off a tier in jail. People don't jump off a tier to commit suicide in jail. He also loved his wife and kids a lot.

I was looking forward to hearing his beats on future Pac albums... at least we still have a lot of his mixes in Amaru's vault and I hope Afeni does the right thing in the future. I can't wait for the remix of Komradz (so so crazy) he did a couple of years ago.

Thanks for all the advice, interviews, and staying loyal to Pac.

Rest In Peace, homie.

I got some info on JJ. He's been in jail since June of this year for the same charge without bail. It's not a simple DUI.
