The stunning Devyn Rose let’s the world know she wants it all, and you know what, something tells us that with her talent and looks she can get it!
It’s with a heavy heart that I report that Frank Alexander has passed away. Tupac fans will know Frank as ‘Pac’s bodyguard and friend, who was on duty that fateful night in 1996.
I’ve spoken to Frank a number of times over the years back when I was working on HitEmUp.com. He produced fan favorite documentaries Tupac: Before I Wake (2001) and Tupac: Assassination (2009), as well as writing Got Your Back (1998), about his time’s with ‘Pac. Through spending so much time with Tupac as his only bodyguard, he often became a voice in regards to speculation surrounding Tupac’s plans just before his death and was sought out by fans and media to clarify things and recount Tupac’s murder. When I spoke with him as a kid he was always happy to share stories and memories, and as a fan, that was always appreciated. No matter how silly in retrospect the question may have been, Frank, knowing what it meant to a young fan, would do his best to answer it. I think it was Frank who told me ‘Pac’s favorite drink was Orange Soda. Before the world of social media and knowing everything about everyone, that kind of information to a little kid was just mind blowing.
Prior to becoming a bodygaurd, Frank served in the US Marines for 11 years, and was a champion amateur Bodybuilder. In recent years he had retired to his ranch and was raising horses, and sadly, we lost contact.
While he was not responsible for Tupac’s death, as his bodygaurd, it is not something he ever got over.
From what I’ve been told, and it isn’t confirmed, he died from a single self inflicted gun shot wound to the head. If that’s true, I’m deeply saddened. Frank never struck me as depressed, although, I would say he was always heavy, there was a weight behind the things he said, and you could tell there was a sense of responsibility behind everything. I think that is why Frank Alexander did his best to give back as much as he could to the Tupac fans, and for that, I am sure every single one of them is thankful.
We’ll miss you.
REST IN PEACE BIG FRANK.
Scarface “makes it as offensive as possible” when discussing the current state of Hip-Hop and music executives brainwashing the current generation. Then on a lighter note he discusses what Tupac‘s plans were before he passed and their friendship. Really great interview, you can tell ‘Face really misses ‘Pac.
I’m really on my fitness tip lately, and while I dont really agree with some of the things SixPackShortcuts promotes (there are no shortcuts!), it’s cool to see videos like this. Mike from SixPackShortcuts caught up with Nelly to see how he stays in shape and how he fits the gym into his busy routine.
Nicki Minaj has told MTV that because the music industry, and Hip-Hop, is run by men, she doesn’t get the recognition she deserves as an MC, and is “better than most of the male rappers” out there.
This time, I care less about the acceptance and more about me being the lyrical, ill bitch that I am. Knowing that I am lyrically better than most of the male rappers out there…. Yes, I’m gonna say it. I don’t get the credit that I deserve.
Like “Up In Flames” on The Re-Up. If a dude was on that song with me everyone would have talked about it and they would say “Oh, who had the best verse?” or “Blah Blah blah.” But, when I put a song out by myself… Men run the hip-hop game, let’s be honest… They not gonna recite a female. They just feel funny and it is what it is.
What do you think?
