Awesome Old Song of the Week: "Changes" by 2Pac

First off it kind of blows my mind that it's been 17 years since the murder of Tupac Shakur.  Now here's what's weird: As I was wikipedia-ing Tupac for some background info I just saw that the drive-by shooting that led to his death occurred on September 7th, 1996 (he died six days later).  The first and only other time I've ever mentioned him on this blog was two weeks ago, on September 8th.

"Changes" wasn't released until 1998, but it's actually much older than that.  Tupac recorded it in 1992, and it also recycles Bruce Hornsby's 1986 hit "The Way It Is."

And I realize this song came out a few years after the movie Above the Rim, but I had to use that pic anyway.  It's the first thing I think of if you mention his name, and was easily one of the coolest movies out there my senior in high school.  I totally wanted to play against Birdie's basketball team.
