Thug Love | "I guarantee I will spark the brain that changes the world.”  Tupac –

Updated: Dec 3, 2023

"Someone once asked me many years back, “if you could have dinner with any three people dead or alive who would they be?” To this day, 2pac would still have to be in my top 3 and an Obey poster with his iconic image still hangs in the living room of my condo.

The best way I can describe how Tupac affected me was his righteous declaration that he was here to change the world. He awakened in my soul a sense of duty & purpose to leave this world better than when I found it and more so that I have the ability to enact that change in some form or fashion. He also spoke and walked with such a confident presence that I understood what he meant when he said "I can look into the mirror and see my soul." That insight led me to the realization that first of all I wasn't in tune with my soul, but secondly that I wanted to figure out how I can achieve that ethereal relationship.

I attribute this shift in perception and consciousness to eventually going down a more spiritual path and getting into things like Kundalini Yoga, breathwork, or whatever I else I can find to move myself more into alignment with my soul, purpose, faith and divinity. It sounds a bit funny but looking back, to me 2Pac represents one of my gurus in the sense that he instilled in me a motivation to find my soul. For that I will always have the utmost respect and reverence for Tupac, the person and his Spirit. Since you're suppose to wear white on your head when practicing kundalini, I like to use it as an excuse to rock my bandanna like 2Pac ;) SLII -


The Inspiration Behind YB÷ and Tupac Shakur

In a world where division and discord often reign supreme, YB÷ - an acronym for "Why Be Divided," stands as a beacon of hope, unity, equality, peace, and positivity. YB÷ is not just a company; it's a movement that seeks to dissolve the deception of division and raise the collective consciousness to Harmonize Humanity. Today, we're excited to introduce a powerful symbol of unity and a commitment to positive change: our Tupac Shakur-inspired t-shirt - 'Thug Love.'

YB÷ was born from a simple yet profound question: Why be divided by race, color, creed, gender, sexual orientation or otherwise? Our mission is rooted in the belief that unity is the path to a better world. We draw inspiration from legendary figures who embodied this very spirit, and one such icon is Tupac Shakur.

Tupac Shakur, a legendary rapper, poet, and social activist, used his voice to advocate for unity, equality, peace, and positivity. He was a symbol of resilience and hope for marginalized communities. Tupac's image on our t-shirt serves as a reminder of his enduring legacy and the values he held dear.

The YB÷ Tupac Shakur T-Shirt: A Symbol of Unity

Our Tupac Shakur t-shirt features the iconic image of Tupac with both a red and a blue bandanna tied together. This imagery represents the fusion of opposing forces, a testament to the power of unity and harmony. The red and blue bandannas, historically associated with rival gangs, come together as a symbol of reconciliation and solidarity.

By wearing this t-shirt, you not only express your commitment to unity but also become a part of a movement that aims to dissolve division and foster positive change in our world.
