Nice, but on every interview there should be a text version or add subtitles to video - quality of talk is wack :/

Thanks for the feedback. Most of the interviews I do are via the phone, I think everybody that do interviews via the phone can tell you that the quality is not perfect, but its really good listenable in my opinion.

I will consider to make text versions as well, but that is really a lot work. Most of my interviews are 60+ more minutes.

Yeah I would read all these interviews if there was a text version. Maybe someone from Pac's forum could help. Much respect for all your work.

I dont believe what he is saying  about no 2pac stuff in the vaults and the rest of the stuff being garbage.

  I don't know.  There is a quite a bit of evidence to support that theory. Obviously, every fan's interpretation of what is quality will differ but based on what Wideawake had put out and reports from a few other folks in the know, it doesn't seem like they had a great deal to work with.

Tha Dogg Pound project seems to back up this theory. Daz and Kurupt arguably had the longest run on Death Row with Daz being there as both an artist and producer for the longest consecutive time period out of the original established roster. Kurupt left pretty early but because Daz was there, he still had a working relationship with them and they were still putting out songs as Tha Dogg Pound through out that time. Kurupt also returned in 2002 and recorded songs for about three more years or so. And yet "Doggy Bagg" instead of being a decent collection of rare and unheard Dogg Pound tracks is pretty thin. It includes a handful of Daz and Kurupt solo tracks (almost all of which are doubled dips from the Ultimate Box Set), alternate recordings of previously-released songs, and even "Big Pimpin", which I am convinced somebody at the label thought was unreleased since they included it on the Ultimate set on the unreleased disc and appear to be trying to sneak it in as another double dip here.

It seems like between the artists who grabbed shit when they left, Suge's people reportedly taking stuff, and all the material they just couldn't legally release that there isn't much of value left over there.  Even the decent tracks they had were either put out in mp3 format or in a roughly-mixed stage.

What are u guys talking about? He never said that there is nothing in the vault, he only said that in his opinion the
stuff from the vault is garbage. And all the hits are already taken out.

He never say that there is no 2pac, dpg whatever left in the vault.
