Mozzy Pays Homage to Tupac Alongside YG & Ty Dolla $ign in New 'Thugz Mansion' Video: Premiere
On the 22nd anniversary since Tupac's tragic passing, Mozzy commemorates the life of the West Coast legend with the divine "Thugz Mansion" visual on Thursday (Sept. 13). The Sacramento-bred rapper teams up with fellow California natives Ty Dolla $ign and YG to properly salute one of hip-hop's fallen angels.
"Ain't no heaven for a thug n---a. That's why we go to thug mansion," Pac famously says on his posthumous 2002 hit. Mozzy's rework calls on Demetrius Shipp Jr, who played Shakur in his All Eyez on Me biopic, for a cameo as the Death Row rapper enters the gates of a thug's mythical paradise in the SUJ and David Camarena-directed clip.
"Watching Tupac struggle and then overcome the struggle was one of the main reasons I idolized him growing up," Mozzy tells Billboard. "Thugz Mansion" will serve as a lead single landing on Mozzy's upcoming Gangland Landlord album, which is due out Oct. 5 via Mozzy Records/EMPIRE.
