The Short Life Of Tupac Amaru Shakur

Essay, Research Paper


Tupac Shakur was born in Brooklyn, NY in 1971. Early in his life, he moved to Baltimore, MD, where he attended the

Baltimore School for the Performing Arts. At this school, Tupac left a lasting impression on his teachers and was showing

Tremendous potential. Unfortunately, Tupac was unable to continue his training. He moved to Oakland, California with the rest

Of his family. That’s when Tupac began to, as he called it, “Hang with the wrong crowd.” Not held back by his lack of formal

Education, Tupac joined the Rap group Digital Underground as a dancer. Not long before the group achieved award winning

Success, Tupac released his own album “2pacallyps Now”, which was also a success. The hit single “Brenda’s Got A

Baby” launched Tupac’s career like a rocket. His stunning talent also got him a role in the motion picture, “Juice”. Tupac

eventually released a second album “Strictly for my Niggaz,” which was an even bigger success. The highlight of Tupac’s

acting career came when he appeared in “Poetic Justice” besides Janet Jackson. The role made Tupac a household name

and showed the world that music may not be Tupac’s #1 attribute.

In the midst of a role in the movie “Above the Rim” and a Platinum album “Me against the world,” Tupac’s rising career

was snagged. He was brought up on sexual assault charges by a woman he met at a nightclub. Hours before Tupac would be

found guilty, Tupac was robbed at gun point by men whose intent and purpose is still uncertain. Tupac was eventually released

at over $1 Million in bail.

After his release, Tupac answered his critics by releasing his best album, “All eyes on me.” “All eyes on me” has currently

sold around 6 million copies, which is revolutionary for a double cd. Especially in Hip Hop music. As the album climbed the

charts, Tupac also completed work on two films, one entitled “Gridlock.” While on his way to do charity work, Tupac

Shakur was assassinated by the bullets of unknown gunmen on September 13, 1996.
