Tupac, Mike Tyson NY Problems, Haitian Jack
The Art Of Dialogue has dropped yet another exclusive interview. This time with brother and sister Jean and Brittany Louis. Brittany Louis knew Tupac when she was four years old but remembers meeting and hanging with him. Her brother Jean is eight years older than her so remembers the finer details of when they met Tupac.
They first came into contact with Tupac through Haitian Jack. Jack was friends with one of their aunts. He brought Tupac to their family owned restaurant when he was filming ‘Above The Rim’.
According to Jean, Tupac would visit the restaurant most days in the evening for a month. He recalls the first thing that ‘Pac said to him. It was “Be real” and he signed an autograph to him which he has to this day.
Although he was a kid at the time, Jean Louis speaks on the drama that would unfold shortly after. Jean said it wouldn’t surprise him if Haitian Jack had involvement in setting Tupac up in regards to Ayanna Jackson. He didn’t see anything off with Tupac and Haitian Jack’s friendship. But something was about Jack saying; “It was the way Jack carried himself”.
Speaking on Haitian Jack’s persona back when he was hanging with Tupac, Jean said;
“It was the 90’s, he was the classic 1990’s drug dealer, gold tooth, fly car and clean. If you asked me what he was doing, he would have to be a rapper or a hustler”.
It was a case of a small world with The Louis family. They had connections to Mike Tyson, when, in 1988, Mike dated Jean’s aunt, prior to him losing to Buster Douglas in Japan. Mike Tyson was friends with Haitian Jack and Tupac.
Towards the end of the interview with The Art Of Dialogue, the topic turned to how a few New York drug dealers had issues with Tupac and Mike Tyson.
One of them New York gangsters was Darryl ‘D-Nice’ Tyler, who is doing a life sentence in Alabama for a drug kingpin and racketeering charges. Darryl ‘D-Nice’ Tyler used to run Brooklyn and at one time dated Jean’s aunt. Finding out that Tupac was talking with a female that he was close to, ‘D-Nice’ had an issue with ‘Pac. He wasn’t feeling him from then on.
