Tupac Shakur is a legendary American rapper who was born on 16th June 1971. He began his music career as a rebel and had one cause that is to point out injustices he had witnessed many African-Americans went through. His skills made him so popular in the country and as the spokesperson of the generation.
The rapper became so influential in the music industry such that he has sold more than 75 million albums up to date. In a shootout, on 7th September 1996, Tupac was shot several times and died six days later. Before the shootout, Tupac was in Las Vegas to watch a Mike Tyson boxing match, and there was a scuffle which was brought about by a disagreement between him and a member of the Crips gang. However, he left a legacy in the rap industry becoming one of the highest selling musicians of all time. Before his death, he competed with other rappers on who was the best in the industry.
However many people have never understood Tupac’s death, and many still believe he could be alive because his murder has never been resolved. He has remained a very influential person in the American music industry.
