Tupac & E-40’s 1st Collabo Still Leaves Lesser MCs Dusted & Disgusted (Video)

PUBLISHED BY AMANDA MESTER •AUGUST 17, 2017 

E-40’s 1995 sophomore solo LP In A Major Way might be remembered most for “Sprinkle Me” (featuring fellow The Click member Suga-T), but lesser-known single “Dusted ‘N’ Disgusted” also stands the test of time. Featuring Tupac – who dropped Me Against the World the very same week, that March – Mac Mall, and Spice 1, it was a record about loyalty to one’s own, regardless of the dirt they may have done. In A Major Way and Me Against The World would go platinum, likely the source of great mutual admiration between the two friends. They had long since been down, thanks to Shakur’s 1988 move to Marin City, California, just a few miles from 40’s native Vallejo.

Heads may recall that ‘Pac is noticeably missing from the “Dusted” music video, in a way replaced by Sick Wid It Records’ own Celly Cel. Sporting a “Free 2Pac” T-shirt, Cel was showing love for a friend locked up. At the time, Shakur was jailed for allegedly sexually assaulting a woman, a crime for which he steadfastly proclaimed innocence. In many ways, Pac’s absence from the video and his friends’ deliberate decision to include him anyway elevated the song’s message even higher (as 40 raps, “Some cold-hearted sh*t / Back to f*ckin’ work, one of the homies just got dusted / What y’all wanna do, what y’all wanna do? / Cold-hearted b*tches…“).
