Blank on Blank: Famous Name, Lost Interviews is an awesome series on the American PBS network that, as its name suggests, releases never-before-heard chats with celebrities. Their episode this week has resurfaced a 1994 talk between Tupac Shakur and Entertainment Weekly journalist Benjamin Svetkey  just two and a half years before the California Love rapper died (or did he?!)

Listen to the audio below, it touches on issues of race, the press, life and death and, of course, the Thug Life.
