Talking about one plan that Tupac wrote, Hammer explained that ‘Pac was all about positively improving young lives. Tupac wrote up a plan that would see him, Snoop and Hammer perform at high schools. However to see them perform, the students grades must be C or above, which created incentive for hard work.

“When I first came to Death Row, we sat down and mapped out a game plan. Tupac was actually writing the blueprint down of what me and him was going to do together. He wanted to go to high schools and give concerts but the requirement was if you don’t have a C you can’t get in.”
