Here’s Tupac in the shirt: And here’s Desmond: Stylin’. Still, I have a lot of questions here: What was Tupac doing in a Rockies shirt? I’m not even sure Tupac ever visited Colorado, and the origins of this picture are mysterious at best. Also the MLB hat and Pizza Hut box have to be mentioned, too — Pac knew how to put together an outfit. Apparently Desmond thought so too — he liked the look enough to have the shirts custom made: “I had
