Includes a suggested playlist of some of Pac´s lesser known songs. Discusses both the New York shooting and Las Vegas shooting in detail, explaining who was likely responsible for them. Discusses the beefs during Pac´s life and the various conspiracy theories surrounding his death. At the renowned Coachella music festival in 2012, crowds looked on with awe and stunned silence as the world´s most famous rapper took the stage to deliver a fiery performance of two of his well-known hits alongside friend and former collaborator Snoop Dogg. The legendary Tupac Shakur had just overshadowed every other performer at the festival despite the fact he´d been dead for over 15 years. The ´´2Pac Hologram´´ was only the latest buzzworthy headline that Tupac has generated long after he was infamously gunned down just off the strip in Las Vegas back in September 1996. Since his death, Shakur´s estate has released far more music posthumously than Pac released in his all-too-brief career, amazing fans and music critics alike. In addition to the music that still keeps finding the light of day, the hologram performance was another fitting example that music fans continue to refuse to let him go, with some even going so far as to speculate that he faked his death. Why does Pac continue to hold such a high place in pop culture among anyone who grew up in the last 40 years? The answers can be found in his turbulent life, unsolved murder, and the fact that most of the topics of his music continue to be relevant today. Born to a single mother who later developed an addiction to crack, Pac´s childhood was marred by constant moving, living in squalor, and eventually being homeless as a teenager in ´´The Jungle´´, Marin City. Always a fan of performing, Pac channeled his rage, energy, and charisma into a rap career, fueled by his inability to forget how he grew up and the social ills he witnessed. 1. Language: English.
