Founder of Elder Entertainment, Ryan Elder, recently shared a video of Houston rapper Devin The Dude where they both reflected on the time Tupac recorded a verse over the phone for Scarface.
At the time, just as Shakur, Devin The Dude was only 25-years-old when he witnessed at Death Row studios Tupac laying a verse over the phone. Those who can be heard in the video below, such as Ryan Elder, are amazed how Shakur was able to record the verse in one take with no mistake or interruptions.
The song titled “Homies & Thuggs (The Remix)” was off Scarface’s fifith studio album “My Homies”. Aside from Tupac, Master P was also featured on the song released on January 20th 1998. Visuals for the song was also released which shows Tupac in studio as stated by Devin The Dude.
Devin also recalled his experience at Death Row studios and how all visitors faced heavy security checks. “They frisked n—– down at the studio at Death Row. They got the treatment for real,” Devin said. He even made a joke about the security checking visitors shoes!
Just as they did in the past, Elder and Devin The Dude have linked up again on a song titled “Keep Going” which will appear on Elder’s new album “The Boos Are Louder From The Cheap Seats”. Set for a summer 2021 release, the album will feature Devin The Dude, Spice 1, Kurupt, Big Mike, Hussein Fatal, Big Syke and E.D.I. Mean.
