New revelations about the Quad shooting, including brand new revelations from the hustlers who befriended rap legend Tupac Shakur just before he was shot at the Quad, as well as a new timeline of the Quad shooting itself will be mentioned in the December VIBE.


Ethan Brown also has a book out that together with the VIBE article will shed new light on this subject.
