Tupac Shakur wanted journalist Ed Gordon’s advice, Gordon says

Tupac Shakur asked journalist Ed Gordon to be his mentor, Gordon told Page Six.

And he said he warned the late rapper that he was keeping dangerous company two weeks before he was murdered.

“The first time I interviewed him, he asked if he could have my cellphone number,” the “Conversations in Black” author revealed. “He told me, ‘You’re not old enough to be my father, but you’re old enough to have some wisdom that I don’t have — and I’m short of that.’ So he would call me every now and then.”

Gordon said that just two weeks before the rapper’s death in 1996, “I told him, ‘The cats you’re running around with are real thugs — you are not a thug.’”

Gordon said he told Shakur, “I suggest you be careful.”
