Shawn Pen Reflects on 1994 Tupac Shooting at Quad Studios 


The night of November 30th, 1994, changed hip-hop forever. Inside of New York City’s Quad Recording Studios, Tupac was robbed and shot five times on this date.

The incident would inspire Tupac’s unwavering animosity towards the Notorious B.I.G., Bad Boy Records, and several other New York artists. It played a significant role in the legendary East Coast-West Coast rivalry.

Tupac was headed to a recording session with Little Shawn, now known as Shawn Pen, at the time of the shooting. More than two decades later, Shawn Pen revisited the tragic night during his interview with The Combat Jack Show.

Aside from talking about Tupac, Shawn Pen reflected on his friendships with The Notorious B.I.G. and Haitian Jack, nearly being signed by 50 Cent, and ghostwriting for numerous artists. He also promoted his new book, The Black Church.
