ESPN Documents Mike Tyson & 2Pac Connection

For ESPN’s new season of 30 For 30, the network plans a documentary entitled One Night in Vegas, chronicling the friendship between Tupac Shakur and Mike Tyson.

The full episode airs on the 14th anniversary of his death.

    I feel conflicted about this because MIke himself has said that he didnt listen to what Pac would have to say at this time. He didnt realize the magnitude of his words. I’m prolly just tripping.

    At the end of the documentary there was a nice song and I want to know if anyone in here knew who sang the last song. It had some good harmony and great singers. Anyone have any idea who they were? Or is there a way I can look them up on youtube or something? Thank you!
