Last week, the Hip-Hop community remembered Tupac for what would have been his 47th birthday. Paying tribute to his legacy, Oklahoma City’s very own, J French, offers us a new lyric video for God Given. God Given is a single off French’s sophomore album, OGB (Only Gets Better), which was released in 2017.

I decided to do a tribute to Tupac because I’ve as always been inspired by him since I was a child, and felt I’ve shared the same struggle when it comes to social progression. His birthday is two days before mine, and he is a Gemini just like me. I hear his voice and feel like I’m listening to myself speak sometimes.” – J French

Along with the video, is a heartfelt open letter to the Hip-Hop legend. French’s open letter to Tupac is the first of three devoted letters that J French will be sharing with his fans.
