“He had everybody calling him,” he said of 2Pac. “I mean from Left Eye to Monica — and Monica was only 15; she wasn’t getting call backs or anything like that — you can’t name no female from ’95, ’96 that wasn’t calling 2Pac. Monica couldn’t get back there. She couldn’t get the phone calls. I’d be hanging out by the receptionist desk and a lot of times it was Monica calling. She could never get back to the studio. She was too young. She called a few times.”
