Marlon Wayans was a star actor and comedian in the decade Tupac & Notorious BIG reigned supreme and tells of his last moments with them.
The Late Late Show with James Corden recently gave more insight into the moments just before the legendary rap stars Biggie and Tupac were murdered. Marlon Wayans recalled being one of the last people to see both 2Pac and The Notorious B.I.G. alive before they were shot and killed.
The trip down memory lane was sparked by a photo that took place in 1992 at the Glam Slam West nightclub in 1992. It would be the last picture of the two rappers together as friends years prior to their fallout in 1994 and 1995.

“I had just did Above The Rim with 2Pac and 2Pac did a movie Juice with my best friend Omar Epps and Pac was performing at Glam Slam which was Prince’s old club downtown,” Wayans said. “And Biggie was performing that night, and that night I met Biggie and Pac and they shared the stage and it was really cool, hanging out, smoking weed together, it was a great night, and then a couple years after that they started beefing.”
He continued, “So I seen Biggie at the Vibe Magazine party and he was like, ‘Yo I’m proud of you guys you know you’re family. I like what y’all doing, y’all legends,’ and he gave us dap or whatever and said, ‘keep doing what you’re doing kid.’ And then ten minutes later I heard pop pop pop, Biggie gets shot.”
“Here’s the crazy thing. I see 2Pac in Vegas at the Luxor and it’s the night it happened to him. I saw him 20 minutes before, went and gave him a hug, said I love you brother good seeing you. Me and Omar got in a cab, Pac had all those people around him. He got in his BMW and was looking at us like, ‘I wish I could get in that cab with y’all,’ but he got in that BMW. Pop pop pop, twenty minutes later he was shot.”
