Kim Kardashian has had ties to the hip-hop/R&B community for a very long time. She first blew up onto the scene in 2007 where she was dating Ray J and they made their famous sex tape. Fast forward to 2012, she started dating Kanye West and ended up getting married and having four children with him.
Kardashian’s hip-hop ties go back farther than we think though. She appeared on the Jonathan Cheban’s Foodgod podcast and answered a question about letting fans know something about her that we don’t already. She revealed that she appared in a 2Pac music video in 1994 when she was 14-years-old and lied about being 18 so she could be in the video.
The music video being shot was for the song ‘All Bout U‘ which appeared on Pac’s fourth studio album ‘All Eyez On Me’ that would go on to be released in 1996 and was the last album where he was alive. This song also featured fellow Death Row Records artist Snoop Dogg, Yaki Kadafi, and Nate Dogg, along with Dru Down and Hussein Fatal. It’s interesting that All Bout U didn’t appear on an album until two years later though.
“When I was 14, I was in a Tupac video. It was like 1994,” said Kardashian. “So first of all, we lied and said we were like 18 probably. I definitely looked 18. I didn’t even drive. Kim[berly] Stewart was in some, I don’t even know what, I think it was for a soundtrack. I have to call Kourtney [Kardashian] and find out.”
It’s crazy that the world never knew at the time how big of an icon that Kardashian would go on to be in the next two decades. Check out Kardashian speaking on being in the All Bout U music video along with the actual music video below. She is at the 3:05, 3:27, and 4:22 marks of All Bout U.
