The Kidz were a group of kids who 2Pac believed had talent and may appeal to other younger kids. His intention was to record an album called 'The Kidz' and had around 11-13 songs. The lyrics are written by Pac and he has more reference vocals on each reel which of course don't necessarily appear on the finished songs.

Tupac talks about The Kidz

Davey D:Is there anything else we should know about Tupac?

2Pac: Yeah, the group Nothing Gold is coming. My kids are coming out with a serious message…NG is a group coming out that I produce.. All the stuff I say in my rhymes I say because of how I grew up. So to handle that, instead of going to a pyschiatrist, I got a kids group that deals with the problems a younger generation is going through. They put them into rhymes so it's like a pyschology session set to music. It'll make you come to grips with what you actually do.. / www.daveyd.com

Tupac Speaks On A Female Artist, A Sister Named Mister

Tupac: “I’m working with this female…A Sister Named Mister. She’s gonna be very strong for women. She’s gonna be speaking up for women, but she’s not gonna be putting her body in the camera to do it. None of that. She’s not gonna use her body at all to sell. She’s not gonna be little Sister Souljah either.

She’s gonna be a real black woman with a mic. She’s gonna have the power of a Black woman without me raping her. I’m not gonna put her body on pictures or anything like that. She’s gonna get the respect of a man. She’s gonna get the power of a woman. She’s eighteen.

Her first song is ‘Don’t Forget Where You Came From’, ‘cause you know how niggas…’I came from the Bronx,’ ‘I came from Brooklyn,’…you came from a uterus. You know and that’s what we forgetting with all this bullshit.” A Sister Named Mister is part the kids: Gold.
