The video appears to have been taken at the 1996 Grammys – the year Tupac died – and shows the rapper hanging around with Snoop as he is interviewed by a reporter.
The reporter asks about the chain Tupac is wearing, to which he responds: “I’m trying to bring 1989 back, I was broke in ‘89. Plus, they had me in jail for a year for a crime I didn’t commit. They locked me in chains so I’ma put on a chain.”
