Label They Almost Signed To: No Limit
Label They Ended Up Signing To: Interscope, Death Row Records
Circa: Early '90s
At this point, it's difficult to think about 2Pac without thinking about Suge Knight, that legendary Vibe Death Row cover, or the entire Death Row attitude. However, 2Pac was apparently almost part of another famous rap collective. No Limit Records head Master P said that he almost signed ‘Pac while both were still based out of the Bay Area. P told HipHopDX.com that Pac was the "one little piece that I was looking at like, ‘You know what? This could be alright.'" Although P says there was a mutual interest between the two, obviously nothing major ever came of it. It’s hard to picture Pac’s career without Death Row, but we know he would’ve rocked the shit out of the No Limit tank.
