With the end of Tupac's unreleased music finally coming to a close, what will remain are those true fans who will continue to show loyality to Pac & everything he stood for. Although he has enough material left for a couple more albums (minus studio scraps), the hardest part of keeping Pac's legacy & memory alive will come when there is no longer music to release to the fans. How will the fans react? How will they deal with the sudden change of the Pacology? Only time will tell...
