Product description

His talent was unbounded, a raw force that commanded attention and respect. His death was tragic--a violent homage to the power of his voice. His legacy is indomitable, remaining vibrant and alive. Here now are Tupac Shakur's private thoughts, conveyed through the pure art of poetry - a glimpse into his enigmatic life and its intense contradictions. Written in his own hand at the age of nineteen, these poems embrace and express his spirit, passion, energy, intelligence...and his ultimate message of hope.

He released a number of classic records including 2Paccalypse Now and Strictly 4 My N.I.G.G.A.Z. In 1995, after recovering from being shot five times during a robbery, he released the two-million copy hit ME AGAINST THE WORLD, and followed that up with the double CD ALL EYEZ, which sold 3 million copies. Shakur also appeared in a number of films, including the Jon Singleton film, POETIC JUSTICE. In September 1996, Tupac Shakur was murdered in Las Vegas. He was 25 years old.
