I don't know. Pac had material with DU in 90/91, right? Scarface was out then and Pac sounded nothing like him. Nor did DJ Akshen sound like the Scarface we know today. I think they influenced each other, if anything.

"I don't denounce writtens, but freestyling at its essence is improvising. It's spontaneous, uncut, mind, thought, travel, energy - all at the same time...the thing is to be at a peak where your freestyle sounds like your writtens and vice versa" - Aceyalone on freestyling (Rappages, Sept. 95)
