The classic “Brenda’s Got A Baby” was also featured on the album.

This wouldn’t be the first time Tupac has been featured as a Pop! figure. Tupac’s Thug Life era and his Death Row days were celebrated via the Pop! Rocks series. Last summer, the “Loyal To The Game” figurine paid homage to Tupac’s posthumous release in 2004. (New Tupac Funko Pop “True to the Game”)
