Loni Love: Awww!
Tamera: What was your greatest memory of him?
E-40: It’s one of my greatest memories, but it’s also one of my saddest memories because it was 1996 and we uh are in my trailer and we are shooting a video to my song called uh “Rapper’s Ball.”
Tamera: Uh huh.
E-40: He was there and he was telling me about, you know, how he had an album for when he died.
Tamera: Um hmmm.
E-40: You know, I don’t think, I mean, he felt like he was going to die. He just had it prepared because he was a workaholic. You know, Tupac would go into the studio and make like 6 or 7 songs in one day. That’s how he operated. He was real quick with his pen. So, now when I think about it, you know, you build up your catalog. You know if you serious about being in the industry and um, carving your identity into the history books, you going to continuously stay in the studio…
Adrienne Houghton: Yep!
E-40: So your name can live on forever.
Adrienne: Yes and it has.
[The Real co-hosts and audience clap.]

About The Real
THE REAL is a daily, one-hour Emmy® nominated talk show on Fox Television Stations and in national syndication (check local listings), with a rebroadcast on cable network BET. Led by bold, diverse and outspoken hosts – Adrienne Houghton, Loni Love, Jeannie Mai and Tamera Mowry-Housley — these women reflect the home audience and unapologetically say what women are actually thinking. Their unique perspectives are brought to life through their candid conversations about topics ranging from their own personal lives to the news of the day to beauty, fashion and relationships. Emmy® nominated for Outstanding Talk Show/Entertainment in its second season, THE REAL is unlike other talk shows, since each of the hosts are admittedly a “work in progress,” and fearlessly invites the viewers into their lives. Their fresh points of view, youthful energy and passion have turned the traditional talk show on its head. Produced by Telepictures Productions and distributed by Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution, The Real originates from Los Angeles. Rachel Miskowiec (Good Morning America, Katie, The Tyra Banks Show, Judge Hatchett, The Ricki Lake Show) is Executive Producer.
