mic chain of 2pac

Hey guys here's another stupid question. What mic(s) did 2pac use.

I'm very intrested because i don't hear alot of sibliance on any of his tracks.
I know there was not a de esser used because i find using a de esser really sucks the life out of most rappers voices.

I wonder if he used a expensive condensor a la U47 or maybe a cheaper dynamic............. perhaps a Shure SM7.


It's easy to find out what mic(s) 50 cent uses etc.....but I have not been able to come across 2pac's recording info.


Any one know?

I'm not sure how much more a de-esser affects rap vocals as opposed sung vocals, but if you're finding the life being sucked out of your tracks you might be using it wrong.
