After being charged with felony rape and sodomy, Tupac told a reporter, "After this, the whole world gonna owe me an apology. Because I went through this and I didn't blow my brains out like Kurt Cobain. And I should. Cause this is a crazy, crazy mess." Pac would keep his head up for another two years before going out in a hail of gunfire at age 25—two years younger than Cobain was.
