    The friendship shared between Mike Tyson and Tupac is one of epic proportions, given how huge they both were at their respective peaks. One was a loud-mouthed, but much-loved rapper, the other a punishing boxer who spoke more through his powerful actions than by words. Much has been documented regarding how they will forever be linked since ‘Pac’s death occurred after a Tyson fight, which ESPN documented in their 30 for 30series. However, how their friendship actually began has been a less documented story until now.

    During a recent sitdown with DJ Whoo Kid, the former boxing champ explains how he first encountered Tupac outside of Brooklyn club where the rapper, who was then unknown to Tyson at the time, couldn’t gain entry to a crowded club where he was set to perform. As Mike tells it, he dismissively waved Pac through security — but not before the rapper pulled in his massive entourage — and was shocked when he saw the rapper rocking the stage later that night. From there, their friendship grew when Tupac’s mom Afeni wrote Tyson in prison and told him her son, by then a star himself, never forgot that night outside the club.
