Unreleased videos of Tupac’s last week alive have surfaced online. Director Gobi M. Rahimi shot the footage in 1996 while documenting the rappers’ journey in creating a joint album with New York music label Duck Down. In one part of the video, Tupac discusses possibly ending the on-going East Coast vs West Coast beef at the time. “We’re working on a new project called One Nation,” Tupac says in the video. “It’s gonna be an East Coast-West Coast collaboration.” The director is planning to release a documentary entitled 7 Days, which will feature more footage from the recording sessions of One Nation and insight into final moments of the Death Row rapper before his untimely death.
