It was more than a tragedy
Emotions be grabbin' me
A possible reference to an event on August 22, 1992, in Marin City, when 2pac was performing at an outdoor festival, and stayed for an hour afterwards signing autographs and pictures. A confrontation occurred and 2pac drew a legally registered Colt Mustang, and allegedly dropped it. As it was picked up by a member of his entourage, a bullet discharged. About 100 yards away, Qa'id Walker-Teal, a 6-year-old, was pedaling his bicycle at a school playground nearby when a bullet struck him in the forehead and killed him. 2pac’s friends and family said the incident haunted him for the rest of his life. This song is dedicated to him.
