Tupac, Biggie Turn Up On Anti-Violence Rap
April 24 [14:00 EST] -- An anti-violence rap single
called "Stop The Gunfight," which features the
voices of Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G., entered the
"Billboard" R&B charts this week at number 41.
"Gunfight," part of a new album of the same
name, was written by Atlanta based rapper Trapp after he lost
his younger brother to a gang related shooting. Trapp then
worked with Tupac and Biggie before they made it big.
Other rappers on the track include Chocolate Chip,
Southside Clik, and Trey.
Trapp said the delayed release was the result of

more than just a single. It took Trapp three years of working
up to 70 hours a week to raise the money to complete the
He says he'll donate a portion of the proceeds to a gun
buy back program sponsored by the Southern Christian
Leadership Conference, and will continue to do something
every year to call attention to gun violence.
