Marlon Wayans Recalls Being With 2Pac and The Notorious B.I.G. Moments Before They Were Killed 



Marlon Wayans is currently on a promo run for his new Netflix film, The Curse of Bridge Hollow, which will be available to stream Friday Oct. 14th. He was a guest on The Late Late Show with James Corden and shared a backstory about the infamous Tupac and Biggie photo and reveals had seen Biggie and Tupac right before they were murdered.

“I had just did Above The Rim with 2Pac. And 2Pac had did a movie [called] Juice with my best friend Omar Epps. So Pac was out performing at Glam Slam, which was Prince’s old club downtown, and Biggie was performing that night. 

“So that night, I met Biggie and Pac, and they shared the stage. And they were really cool and hanging out and smoking weed together, it was a great night,” recalled the New York native. “And then, a couple of years after that, they started beefing. So I seen Biggie at the VIBE Magazine party and he was like, ‘Yo, I’m proud of you guys, your family. I like what y’all doing, y’all legends.’ And he gave us dap or whatever and he said, ‘Keep doing what you’re doing, kid.” And then 10 minutes later, I heard [imitates gunshots]… Biggie gets shot.”

“Here’s the crazy thing, I see 2Pac in Vegas at The Luxor, and it was the night it happened to him. I saw him 20 minutes before [and] went and gave him a hug, said, ‘I love you brother, good seeing you.’ Me and Omar got in a cab. Pac had all those people around him, he got in his BMW, and he was looking at us like, ‘I wish I could get in that cab with y’all,’ but he got in that BMW. 20 minutes later, he was shot.”

“It’s crazy ’cause I’m sitting there, watching the both of ’em in the background of that picture,” he added. “I love ’em both, miss ’em both.”
