In an exclusive interview with Heart of an Outlaw show, LongBeach Lloyd clears the air on why he knows the ’61 Impala he purchased earlier in 2020 is the one seen in Tupac’s music video.
Since purchasing the exact ’61 Impala which appeared in Tupac’s posthumous music video, LongBeach Lloyd had doubters questioning the authenticity of the car.
Right before the pandemic hit, the California native came across a post posted by Cali Boy who was selling the ’61 Impala. Apart from the car not in the price range for Lloyd, many within his circle questioned whether or not this was the car in Tupac’s music video.
After Shakur’s demise, the video for To Live & Die In L.A. was released. In the video Tupac is seen cruising around L.A. in a ’61 Impala.
Lloyd had no doubt this was indeed the car which up for sale by Cali Boy. “I went out there to look for myself and it was the car. I knew it before I even got verification of it just by looking at it,” Lloyd said who studied everything about the car before attempting to get his hands on it.
“I started messing with the glove box, cause you couldn’t get it open, they told me it was stuck,” LongBeach Lloyd explains. “When I opened it, production papers were in there. But, the best part about it was the registration papers to the plates, to the music video were right there in the car.” Now with a doubt, Lloyd knew this was the exact ’61 Impala used in Tupac’s To Live & Die In L.A.
