Despite the ridiculousness of the story, Roth hasn’t shared it publicly until recently. As the actor told host James Corden, Tupac took him and their co-star Thandie Newton to see his usual workplace, “which was hilarious because a little pasty-faced London boy walking into Death Row Records was … well, people were just laughing at me.”
But not only did Tupac give them the tour, he set up Roth and Newton in the booth and had them freestyle with him. “We all rapped together, but I couldn’t keep a straight face,” Roth said. “I didn’t write a thing. He just made me say stuff.”
While Roth couldn’t recall the nature of his bars, he said the recordings are likely sitting in a vault. Corden then jumped on the chance to feign a surprise reveal, which prompted a terrified, “Oh, shit,” from Roth.
“I wish, we looked,” Corden assured him with a laugh. “Believe me, it is in a secure vault.”
