Tupac

I didn’t know much about Tupac, before this assignment. Some things I did know was that Some people still thinks that he is alive and that he is living in Cuba with an different identity. Tupac is known for the best rapper in the rap game. Tupac lived most of his life in New York, and then he moved to California and started to be in the rap game. Many people think that Tupac would come back when he is 45, and that’s 2014. Most of his fans want to know why they cremated Tupac’s body. I just find it really weird that they cremated Tupac when in some of his songs he talks about being buried. Some people think that Biggie friends kill him, and that the illuminati got him, because he made a song a month before he died, call “Killuminati”.



Tupac started rapping and doing what he loved at age twelve, when he found his interests in acting and writing love songs. When he moved to Oakland, California with his family, he started to hang with the "wrong crowd", as he would call it. At age 15, he fell into rap by writing lyrics and acting like a gangster. Tupac joined the rap group Digital Underground as a dancer. Then he sold many albums that were heard throughout the country. Tupac's talent also got him a role in the movie "Juice". In November 1994, Tupac was shot five times during a robbery in which thieves robbed Tupac's jewelry. He recovered from his injuries, and then made an album called, "Me against the World". After this, he produced his best album, "All Eyez on Me," which has sold over Five million copies.

On September 7th, 1996, Tupac was shot again by unknown gunmen and was pronounced dead on September 13, 1996.  His music is still never forgotten as many people still listen to the music he put out. One of his songs that are really famous is “Dear Mama, California, straight rider”. Tupac mom had opened a Foundation call The Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation, its home to the Tupac Amaru Shakur Center for the Arts, just outside of Atlanta. The Center is happy to help other kids in the community with educational programs. It’s been going on for nearly 10 years.
