Cousins! While appearing on the #LateLateShow hosted by #JamesCorden , #MarlonWayans recalled some wild unforgettable moments he shared with Hip Hop legends #BiggieSmalls and #Tupac before their passing!
The conversation originally stems from a photo of Big and Tupac standing next to one another for the very last time in union before they began to feud. Fans recently noticed that the two weren’t the only ones in the photo as you can zoom into the far right corner and peep Marlon as well.
For the very first time publicly Marlon spoke in detail about the iconic photo and the final moments he shared with both of them. “I had just did Above The Rim with 2Pac and 2Pac did a movie Juice with my best friend Omar Epps and Pac was performing at Glam Slam which was Prince’s old club downtown.”
Marlon continued, “And Biggie was performing that night, and that night I met Biggie and Pac and they shared the stage and it was really cool, hanging out, smoking weed together, it was a great night, and then a couple years after that they started beefing. So I seen Biggie at the Vibe Magazine party and he was like ‘Yo I’m proud of you guys you know you’re family. I like what y’all doing, y’all legends,’ and he gave us dap or whatever and said, ‘keep doing what you’re doing kid.’ And then ten minutes later I heard pop pop pop, Biggie gets shot.”
Despite the details of the shocking final moments he shared with Biggie it didn’t end there as he recalled the very last time he saw Tupac as well. “Here’s the crazy thing. I see 2Pac in Vegas at the Luxor and it’s the night it happened to him. I saw him 20 minutes before, went and gave him a hug, said I love you brother good seeing you. Me and Omar got in a cab, Pac had all those people around him. He got in his BMW and was looking at us like, ‘I wish I could get in that cab with y’all,’ but he got in that BMW. Pop pop pop, twenty minutes later he was shot.”
Both Marlon and Tupac had previously starred in the 90s film ‘Above The Rim’. Biggie and Tupac we’re gunned down in the mid 90s on two separate occasions only months apart. Neither one of the culprits have ever been identified.
