The 'Art of Peer Pressure' rapper has left a touching tribute to the 'California Love' hitmaker on the 19th anniversary of his death yesterday (13.09.15).
He wrote: ''I was 8 yrs old when I first saw you. I couldn't describe how I felt at that moment. So many emotions. Full of excitement. Full of joy and eagerness. 20 yrs later I understand exactly what that feeling was. INSPIRED.
''The people that you touched on that small intersection changed lives forever. I told myself I wanted to be a voice for man one day. Whoever knew I was speaking out loud for u to listen. Thank you. K.L. (sic)''
Meanwhile, the 28-year-old star recently admitted he didn't want the ''responsibility'' of being a role model as he was growing up.
He shared: ''Being a leader wasn't even an ambition, to be real with you. It's something I didn't wanna take responsibility for. Nobody do, especially when you're still searching for answers for yourself. I don't have the answers!
''I tell people that all the time. I'm still learning, but I think that's what makes people connect with me; I don't point the finger.''
