Queen Latifah was taking a stroll down memory lane during her guest appearance on Hot Ones. The actress recalled a specific memory of the one night she and the late 2Pac went to a gay club.
“I was in San Francisco doing a show,” she remembered. “It was my first show over $10,000, which was a New Year’s Eve show at this cool gay club in San Francisco. I was like, ‘Yo I’m here!’ So 2Pac came to club with me. I was like, ‘Yo, 2Pac is in the building!'”
Latifah remembered having a great time with the late rapper. “They went crazy in there,” she said. “They like, ‘Take off your clothes!’ He took his shirt off anywhere. We had so much fun. But that was like my brother and he’s the type of person if he loved you, if he was cool with you, he’d lay his life down for you. I miss him and I love him. Good times. And we were probably high.”
The actress said that the two were really close and “were pretty much labelmates.”
Before her episode ended, she left the audience with a 2pac fact: “I was signed to Tommy Boy Records. Digital Underground was signed to Tommy Boy Records. Initially, I took Treach on the road as my roadie,” she said. “Treach went on to head Naughty By Nature and 2Pac was pretty much a roadie with Digital. And he became a rapper in the group and made up the Humpty Dance, and they made the song ‘The Humpty Dance,’ which 2Pac created the dance to and it became a smash hit.”
