WE EMBRACE POSITIVE HIP-HOP

Christian Petersen

Mostly because our mom was hyper-aware of parental advisory stickers.

The early '90s were a simpler time, when bowl games were named for society's aspirations, and rap was clean and upbeat. Positivity was all around us, and the youth of America felt like they could achieve anything together.

But by the end of 1994, the Freedom Bowl had sold its last program, and Tupac Shakur had been shot five times in the lobby of Quad Recording Studios. Are the two connected? Did Stretch arrange for the Rams to move to St. Louis, making Anaheim Stadium less useful as a football host? Is there truth to the rumors that Earle Bruce, coach of the Colorado State team that beat Oregon in this game, slept with Faith Evans?

Only one man knows. You can't hide the truth forever, Diddy.
