A few weeks ago marked the sixteenth anniversary since Aaliyah released “We Need A Resolution,” feel old yet? That also, sadly, means, it’s coming up on the sixteenth anniversary since she took that flight into the heavens. Gone far too soon and all is left are the memories.
Meanwhile, Tupac was elevated into rap’s Elvis, the minute he died, as people speculated about him somehow surviving. But, realistically, people don’t come back after they die. His legacy has lived on and, finally, his biopic is seeing the light of day.
For no particular reason, Tupac and Aaliyah have trended all day with the #ThugNation hashtag for Pac and #TeamAaliyah for Baby Girl. It doesn’t have to be a special occasion to celebrate these two talented artists. Both were so ahead of their time and gone so soon, neither got to see their 30th birthday, shame.
