The Outlawz Remake Tupac’s Classic ‘Pain’ with New Track ‘So Much Pain’ [WATCH]
The Outlawz just released a tribute song to honor their fallen loved ones. The group remade Tupac’s 1994 record “Pain” for a new version called “So Much Pain” featuring up-and-coming R&B crooner Mike Green.
Twenty years ago, the hip-hop group lost their ringleader, Tupac Shakur and their beloved friend Yaki Kadafi. Just last year, one of the group’s members, Hussein Fatal passed away car accident July 11 at the age of 38. The New Jersey-born rapper appeared on several tracks for Tupac's 1996 double album, All Eyez on Me. You can find Fatal’s cutting verses on, "All About U" and "When We Ride." He also delivered lyrics on Tupac's infamous diss track "Hit 'Em Up." In May of this year, The dismantled group suffered another devastating blow with the death of Tupac’s mother Afeni Shakur.
“We don’t like to re-do Tupac songs, but I think we did this one justice and did it in a different way. It’s a powerful record,” Young Noble said of the track.
“So Much Pain” was one of the final tracks Hussein Fatal worked on before the car crash that took his life. Because the re-creation was Fatal’s idea, The Outlawz felt it was only right to finish what he started and release the track in Fatal’s honor. Sadly, the recent passing of Afeni Shakur also fueled their desire to finalize the cut “So Much Pain.”
“With [So Much Pain] being one of the last tracks we got to do with our brother Hussein Fatal, it has turned into a dedication song for him, Afeni, and all our other fallen comrades. R.I.P.!” said E.D.I. Mean.
The group teamed up with director Dr. Teeth to create the visual for the track. Peep the video above and listen to the song below.
