As Tupac said: “I was born on the east coast, I love the east coast.“ He collected rap artists from the East coast and the recording session that wanted to issue. This session the called “One Nation“

“‘Pac felt like New York people wasn’t really fucking with him, and Tek and Steele was like, they had fucked with him,” Buckshot said. It would be the liner notes of Smif-N-Wessun’s debut album, Dah Shinin’ and subsequent shout outs of, “Keep Ya Head Up” that would ultimately unite the two parties. But unlike most instances involving those who would one day like to work with Tupac musically, ‘Pac was the one who initially reached out.

“‘Pac called the studio one night; we’re in the studio, doing the album with Heltah Skeltah,” Buckshot recalled. “He like, ‘Yo, I want you to come out, what you doing two days from now? I want you to come out here and do an album with me… I’m sitting here with Greg Nice right now, we eating chicken.’ And I was laughing and he said, ‘Fly out,’ and I said, ‘We there.’”
Footage was recently released showing the two camps meeting outside of the airport. Tupac met up with Boot Camp Clik personally, as he and the Outlawz greeted the New York super group upon exiting the limo sent for them.
