Tupac's Garden 

"Biggie Smalls and Junior Mafia/ Some mark ass bitches/We keep on coming/ While we running for yah jewels/Steady gunning/ Keep on busting at them fools/ You know the rules/Little Ceasar go ask yo homie/ How I'll leave yah/ Cut your/ Young ass up/ See yah in pieces."

- Lyrics from Tupac Shakur's "Hit 'Em Up""


The whole purpose of the garden is to promote peace and tranquility."
- Tre Maxie, project manager at the Tupac Shakur Arts Center, to the AJC. The center, with a six-acre peace garden, opened last week in Decatur.


"That fat bitch took it like a bitch. Rolled up on his ass and smoked his fat ass. I got the fat ass. My people took care of it. ... We wanted to let them know 'Damoo' (Swahili for Blood) got him on the West Side."

- From an affidavit presented last week in the wrongful death case brought by Notorious B.I.G.'s (Biggie Smalls) family. Marion "Suge" Knight, founder of Death Row Records and a close friend of Tupac, allegedly made the statement to his cellmate in reference to B.I.G.'s killing.
