tupac-shakur-thug-style-568x747Produced by Louis Roederer, Cristal Champagne was first created in 1876 for Alexander II of Russia. It has since come to be increasingly associated with rap and hip hop culture and referenced in many song lyrics. Often referred to as “Crissy”, it was the favoured fizz of late rapper Tupac Shakur who was so fond of the brand that he devised his own cocktail, Thug Passion – a blend of Alizé Gold Passion liqueur and Cristal.

Shakur sold over 75 million records worldwide and is regulalry cited as one of the most influential rappers of all time. Toward the end of his career, Shakur was particularly vocal on the rivalry brewing between so-called west coast and east coast rappers and became embroiled in feuds with other rappers including Notorious BIG and Bad boy Records. He was killed in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas in 1996.
