How does one die of an accidental overdose of cocaine? It's illegal to have it in the first place, so if you take it, it's no accident. Anyway, one less druggie.

I love Tupac    

I HAVE TO TRULY SAY WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND. I AM VERY SORRY FOR IKE'S FAMILY AND FOR THEIR LOSS. BUT AFTER SEEING THE MOVIE WHAT'S LOVE GOT TO DO WITH IT, I CAN'T SEEM TO GET THE IMAGE OUT OF MY MIND OF HIM RAPING HIS OWN WIFE WHILE HE WAS HIGH ON COKE OR WHATEVER HIS CHOICE OF DRUG WAS AT THE TIME.


RIP IKE!!!!
