Tupac Amaru Shakur, Chistopher Wallace also known as Notorious BIG, Curtis Jackson also known as 50 Cent and Oladapo Olaitan Olanipekun also known as Da Grin, what do all these hip hop artistes have in common? They all sang about their deaths and only 5O Cent is alive to talk about it, the other three are as TI sang ‘Dead and Gone’. Da Grin, two weeks to his death did a song ‘If I Die’ which was seen as strange to both his producer and manager, little did they know he was doing his last song bidding the world goodbye. Tupac was rumoured to have been listening to his song ‘If I Die Tonight’ on the night he was shot, Biggie sang the songs ‘Niggaz Praying For My Downfall and Your Nobody Till Somebody Kills You’ . 5O Cent sang ‘Many Men’. My question is did these stars sing prophetically or out of fear? The funny thing of the deaths of Tupac, Biggie and Da Grin was that they all met death in black cars. Tupac died six days after he was shot on the streets of Los Angeles while Da Grin died eight days after sustaining injuries in a ghastly car accident. Eminem in his song show Proof dying and he did a year later. Tupac was twenty-five years old, Biggie was twenty-four years and two months while Da Grin was twenty-six,  to say they died young, I still don’t know if there is a connection between death but I hope to answer that question  in days if not months to come.
