BET’s long-since-annulled show, Video LP, experienced its most popular run under Sherry Carter from 1989-1992. Shakur, being one of her final guests, exhibited his normal personality. Donning a UNLV Runnin’ Rebels t-shirt, Reeboks and jewelry, Pac proved funny at times, serious at others, yet engaging throughout. The unique aspect of the program centered around viewer call-ins. Around the 3:40 mark, Carter takes the first call from a young man named Malrice Battle from Willingboro, New Jersey. Battle’s question revolves around the inspiration of “Brenda’s Got A Baby.”
Pac’s answer proved contradictory of his description a year earlier on the boat, but produces the same scenario seen in the song. The most revealing clue arises when Tupac says he became aware of the story while filming Juice. Let’s break down the dates and facts.
