Indian singer Mika Singh recently paid a tribute to the legendary rapper Tupac Shakur (2Pac) by singing a promotional track of the film All Eyez on Me, but that did not go well with several of the rapper's fans.
Mika recently released a song 2 Shots in homage to the iconic hip-hop artist Tupac. The song is a promotional track of Tupac's biopic All Eyez On Me, which is being distributed in India by Purple Bull Entertainment and Gakhal Brothers Entertainment.
When asked why he lent his voice to the song, Mika said he is a huge fan of the rapper. "I've always been a huge fan of Tupac and been heavily influenced by the hip-hop movement in general. That's why when I was approached for the tribute, I was ecstatic. Tupac has left behind a legendary legacy which is unmatchable," he told IANS in an interview.
