2Pac covers the September 2011 edition of XXL magazine in honour of the 15th anniversary of his passing.
15 years already. It feels like only yesterday when I heard the news.
A prisoner named Dexter Isaac has confessed to the robbing and shooting of Tupac at Manhattan’s Quad Studios in November 1994. This was 2 years before his fatal shooting in Las Vegas.
Dexter Isaac was allegedly paid $2,500 dollars by Czar Entertainment CEO James “Jimmy Henchman” Rosemond to do it. Isaac is currently serving life in prison for murder and robbery.
This is a compilation video of some inspiring words from Tupac. You can really hear the passion and determination he has every time he speaks.
“Practice makes perfect, you’ve got to be dilligent about what you want, you have to apply yourself, you have to motivate yourself”
Also features lyrics from his songs and clips from interviews.
“There’s no way people should own planes when there’s people that don’t even have houses, apartments, shacks…”
R.I.P Tupac Amaru Shakur (June 16, 1971 – September 13, 1996).
“I see no changes all I see is racist faces, misplaced hate makes disgrace to races”
Amazing documentary about the meeting of legends when Iron Mike Tyson met Tupac. Part of ESPN’s 30 for 30 video series.
Features interviews with Nas, Suge Knight, Maya Angelou, Mickey Rourke and Tupac’s mother Afeni Shakur. Was crazy to hear that Mike Tyson had to tell Tupac to calm down.
Watch the documentary in full above.
Today would have been Tupac’s 39th Birthday.
“How many brothers fell victim to the streets? Rest In Peace young n-gga, there’s a Heaven for a G”
Tupac is one of the greatest social commentators of our time, a brilliant story teller and a true ghetto poet. Happy Birthday Pac.
Life goes on but never forgotten!
