Tupac or Tupac Shakur is considered as a legend in hip-hop. Born on June 16, 1971, the American rapper has sold about 75 million albums. This easily made him one of the top selling artists to date.
Tupac started his music career with a focus on articulating injustices and travails commonly endured by a lot of African-Americans. His skill in that area made him an effective spokesperson for anyone dealing with equality issues.
On September 13, 1996, Tupac died of the gunshot wounds he received 6 days before. His murder, unfortunately, was never resolved. This caused a lot of speculations from fans who believe that Tupac faked his death to live somewhere in secrecy.
Whether that’s true or not, one thing remains: Tupac contributed a lot in the music industry. And as a way to look back, here are some of the most famous Tupac quotes. Enjoy!
