Ashanti In Right Place At Right Time For Tupac Duet

ASHANTI found herself in the right place at the right time when producer LT was finishing off late rap legend TUPAC SHAKUR's latest album - and got the chance to 'record' with her hero. The singer begged to feature on PAC'S LIFE, which is part of the legacy of rhymes and unfinished material Shakur left after his death in September 1996, after she was treated to a sample in the studio. Ashanti recalls, "I was recording my album... Right place, right time. They actually had the record done already and they were coming to the studio to play the mix, so I heard the record and I'm like, 'This is hot. I need to be on this record.'" Ashanti took time out of recording her own new album to add vocals to the new Tupac release - and then accepted an invitation to visit the Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation Peace Garden in Georgia to shoot the video with rapper TI. She adds, "I can't even believe that he's been gone for 10 years; it doesn't feel like that. His spirit just flows throughout the industry."
