Conversations regarding Tupac’s relationship with Death Row normally revolve around Suge Knight and him being a high-ranking member of the notorious Bloods gang.
However, according to a recent Instagram post from Tha Dogg Pound member Daz Dillinger, ‘Pac had ties to rival gang The Crips.
“BEFORE TUPAC WAS ON DEATHROW & CURSED BY SUGE HE WAS CRIPP’N WITH ?THUGLIFE? I TOLD HIM THE NITE WE DID THE 5 SONGs FOR @alleyezmovie THE ALBUM I SAID ?PAC DONT LET THIS GANGBANG COME BETWEEN US AKA DEATHROW VS DOGGPOUND TruFactz,” wrote Dillinger under a picture of Tupac wearing a blue bandana.
‘Pac never officially claimed a gang and was known for once attempting to bring a treaty between both the Bloods and Crips around 1992 in Watts. Putting together a Thug Life code, Pac tried to reduce violence in the community.
As Suge spends his time in jail awaiting trial for murder charges stemming from a 2015 incident in Compton, Daz made an Instagram post last year taking shots at the former Death Row head.
