The man responsible for Tupac’s ‘All Eyez On Me‘ biopic, L.T. Hutton, has released an unheard audio clip of Suge Knight and Snoop Dogg speaking about Tupac Shakur joining Death Row records.
As of late Snoop Dogg has been highly criticized for interviews he has appeared on where he attempts to justify his infamous interview with Angie Martinez in 1996, or for taking credit as to why Tupac joined Death Row records.
In the exclusive audio clip provided to The Art of Dialogue, L.T. Hutton shared an unheard audio clip here Suge Knight giving credit to Snoop for the signing of Tupac Shakur in 1995.
“This is more of a clarification because no one is taking an credit away from Keisha Morris, and what she did with making the three-way call. But, let’s be clear she’s not a business woman, she couldn’t make the deal,” explains L.T. Hutton speaking to The Art of Dialogue.
At the time of his incarceration, Tupac Shakur was married to Keisha Morris. Morris would play a role in linking up Tupac with Suge Knight, as she initiated the thtree-way call while Tupac was locked up.
“When it comes to your number one artist on your label, your always gonna make sure that everybody is ok. With Snoop and Tupac being great friends already with establishing that relationship, Suge went to Snoop to make sure it was good, and how he felt about bringing Tupac on the team,” said L.T. Hutton.
Prior to Tupac signing to Death Row records, Suge Knight had tried to sign him. Tupac at the time was already establishing himself on Interscrope records and did not feel the need to join Death Row records.
“Pac found the moment where in his prison sentence where he was like, ‘Yo get Suge on the phone’. So, she [Keisha Morris] made the call,” said Hutton. “When should said what he was gonna do, he called a meeting with Snoop, and him and Snoop had the conversation.”
The audio clip released stems from a conference called between L.T. Hutton, Snoop Dogg, and Suge Knight via prison. In releasing the audio, Hutton hopes that one would understand as to why Snoop has always believed he played a big role for Tupac joining Death Row records.
Suge can be heard during the 28 second audio clip saying, “At the end of the day, if it wasn’t for you, he [Tupac] wouldn’t be here, right or wrong?”
