About Tupac Shakur
Tupac Shakur was a force to be reckoned with in the world of hip-hop. Born in East Harlem, New York City, on June 16, 1971, he was raised by his mother, Afeni Shakur, a member of the Black Panther Party. Tupac's early life was marked by poverty, violence, and instability, but he found solace in music and poetry.
In the late 1980s, Tupac moved to the West Coast and began his career as a rapper. He quickly gained a reputation for his raw, honest lyrics and his ability to tell stories that resonated with his audience. His debut album, 2Pacalypse Now, was released in 1991 and was followed by a string of successful albums, including All Eyez on Me and The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory.
Tupac was not just a rapper, he was also an actor and activist. He appeared in several films, including Poetic Justice and Above the Rim, and used his platform to speak out against police brutality, racism, and poverty. He was a vocal supporter of the Black Lives Matter movement and was known for his activism in the community.
Unfortunately, Tupac's life was cut short when he was shot and killed in Las Vegas on September 13, 1996. He was just 25 years old. His death was a shock to the music world and his fans, but his legacy lives on. Tupac's music continues to inspire and influence artists today, and his activism has paved the way for a new generation of activists.

During 1995, imprisoned, impoverished, and his mother about to lose her house, Tupac had his wife Keisha Morris get word to Marion "Suge" Knight, in Los Angeles, boss of Death Row Records. Reportedly, Tupac's mother promptly received $15,000. After an August visit to Clinton Correctional Facility in northern New York state, Suge traveled southward to New York City to join Death Row's entourage to the 2nd Annual Source Awards ceremony. Already reputed for strongarm tactics on the Los Angeles rap scene, Suge used his brief stage time mainly to belittle Sean "Puff Daddy" Combs, boss of Bad Boy Entertainment, the label then leading New York rap scene, who routinely performed with his own artists. Before closing with a brief comment of support for Tupac, Suge invited artists seeking the spotlight for themselves to join Death Row. Eventually, Puff recalled that to preempt severe retaliation from his Bad Boy orbit, he had promptly confronted Suge, whose reply — that he had meant Jermaine Dupri, of So So Def Recordings, in Atlanta — was politic enough to deescalate the conflict.
