Marshall Mathers just heard the news and was so shocked he didn't know what to say or do. It was a moment that no rap fan will ever forget — how could they?  The hip-hop community's hearts were racing a thousand miles per second and the only thing moving faster were their minds. Everyone was angry, confused and, most of all, heartbroken.

It was September 13, 1996, and the world had just learned that one of the all-time great musical talents has passed away. Music would never be the same.

"I remember exactly where I was when I heard that Tupac died," Eminem said solemnly. "I was cooking in a restaurant. It was me, Kuniva and Kon Artis from D12. We all had the same job. There was a big TV screen. We all just kinda watched it, just dazed. It almost didn't feel real."

I remember just the feeling of like, 'Holy sh--!' " Em continued. "This is how real it got? I just remember this feeling of gloominess. A lot of the people at the job that I worked at didn't understand Tupac or didn't understand the music. So they were looking at us like, 'What? What's wrong? What's the big deal? Get over it.' And it's like, 'Nah, you don't, you don't understand.  This is a really f---ed-up day.' "
