Tupac was raised in a family of social activists, as both of his parents were members of a revolutionary socialist organization called “Black Panther Party”. Tupac attended the Baltimore School for the Arts, where he met one of his closest friends Jada Pinkett. At the age of 17, Tupac together with his family moved out to Marin City, where together with his group called “Strictly Dope” he had his very first concert. This led to Tupac being signed as a backup dancer to the alternative hip hop group “Digital Underground”. It was with this band that Tupac started his professional rapping career.

  1. Being well known to be outspoken on issues of race,equal rights,disparities of wealth,police brutality,womes issues etc.. I know he’s now turning over in his grave knowing that all he’s worked for and all he suffered through,all of his money and work is now in the hands of non black opportunistic strangers. The people he fought to help during life are now being ignored while his fortune goes to fund some jerks lavish lifestyle. Had he known this or that his mother would be murdered because of it,I’m sure he would’ve never recorded a single song. RIP Tupac Amaru Shakur alias Makevelli.
