End of Tupacs days
I think that Tupac was admirable because he did what he loved to do and did it well. He made music that changes the way people look at the world. On September 19, 1996 Tupac was in a limo when a car pulled up next to him and 5 shots were fired at him. He was sent to the hospital and after many hours of trying to remove the bullets, he died. We'll never know the great things he could have done if he had lived.'' When did I ever say I was a gangster rapper? was Frank Sinatra a gangster singer? Is Steven Seagal a gangster actor. That's such a limited term. I'm an artist. And I rap about the oppressed taking back their place. I rap about fighting back. To me, my lyrics and my versus are about struggling and overcoming.''- Tupac
Tupac's song ''Changes'' which is about the challenges of living in the ghetto.
Determined, Strong, Outgoing, Unafraid
Who loved music, poetry, and a good education
Who hated discrimination, racism, and loved rapping about the thug life
Who fought against racism, afraid it would continue, and rapped about skin color can change everything when people see you
Who rapped about respect for blacks, and equality and justice
Who wanted racism to end.
Born in NY and living in Baltimore
