Tupac Amaru Shakur

Tupac Amaru Shakur's rise to fame started when he was born on June 16, 1971 in New York. He soon moved with his single-mother, Afeni, to Baltimore, where his interest in performance began when he attended the Baltimore School for the Arts. Some time later, an Oakland area called Marin City (or "The Jungle") became their new home, where he was dubbed MC New York. Tupac later caught on with Digital Underground, which launched him toward his solo career. He also got his first taste of acting around this time, a medium which he immediately excelled at.

Tupac was one of the greatest all-around talents our nation has ever seen. Some may see that as merely biased exaggeration, but it's true. Rapping was obviously a skill that he was blessed with, but he was a truly great actor, poet, and leader who possessed a glowing charisma. Many don't realize what a great, honest, and influential figure he was, which is very sad. Also ofimportance, he was very popular with and respectful of women, which further added to his mass appeal. It's hard to say how much he could of done if he would have lived past such a short 25 years.

I love Tupac, and his great influence on me has changed my ideal of what qualities a person should embody. People need to keep him alive in their hearts, and thankfully we'll be aided in doing so through all his music which is still unreleased.

There are a lot of people out there who say they are huge Tupac fans, but many just listen superficially to the music without knowing what or who is really behind the words. Here's a test I came up with: If you can listen to "So Many Tears" without getting teary-eyed and emotional (as I always do), then you are not a true fan of the man and legend, Tupac Shakur.
