Watch Jhene Aiko cover Tupac's classic 'Keep Yah Head Up' for Rap Up Sessions.
“If I’m feelin’ sad I’ll put on ‘Keep Ya Head Up,’ but if I’m feelin’ like I just wanna have fun or if it’s a nice summer day, I’ll put on ‘I Get Around.'”
Jhene grew up listening to Pac “I think he’s a global icon for speaking your mind, being controversial, and just having something to say in your music,” she told Rap-Up TV. “He had it all—the look, the music, and he really stood for something. Even if you just wanna make the world happy or make ’em dance, it should be for a reason and not just for personal gain, and I think he really took responsibility for that. He knew the power in music.”
