    I did some research and apparently he played bass on a lot of his albums. Here is a link i found of him playing bass in Gridlock'd.

    It would have been really funny if you were the guy on Talkbass that goes by the username Tupac and posted that.

    Well it doesn't belong in bassists either. I don't know if 2pac actually played bass but he clearly isn't in that video.

    That's not really surprising considering the guy has probably had one of the most prolific and successful posthumous recording careers ever.

    ...he has powers that go beyond the realm of us mere mortal bass players. :ninja:

    Prince is the guitar version then.
    If youve seen An Evening With Kevin Smith (the first one) then you know that Prince as a whole VAULT filled with unreleased material.
    Some people have figured out how to live forever. FOR. EV. ER.
     
  10. Grilled cheese sammitches are the key.

    Do you play bass? It takes a real bassist, heck any real musician, about two seconds to see he is clearly not playing and has no idea how to do so.

    Good troll though, NEXT!!

    That's funny. Gridlock'd is one of my favorite movies. And the way I remember that movie is that all the bass playing details are so far zoomed in you can't tell who's playing bass. And the wide views are far enough away that you can't see what Two pack is playing. Re-watch the last scene with him on the double bass...do you actually see Toopeezy play a note? I mean do you see his face attached to his hand striking an note? No. You don't.

    Sorry.

    No but I can play whatever rhythm I want and the notes always miraculously play on beat.

    I learned that from tupac bass lessons.

    Did y'all know that in addition to being a scientist and a physician, when he grows angry or outraged, Edward Norton transforms into a gigantic, green irradiated mutant humanoid monster with incredible strength and an acute inability to control his rage? I did some research. Apparently, he was exposed to an overdose of gamma radiation as the result of a military scheme to reinvigorate the supersoldier program.
