The late Tupac Amaru Shakur was born Lesane Parish Crooks in Brooklyn, New York City, on June 16, 1971, to Afeni Shakur, a member of the Black Panthers.
He is known by his stage name 2Pac, he was an American rapper. Shakur has sold more than 75 million albums worldwide, making him one of the best-selling music artists in the world.
The also played an active role in active and became a successful actor in the early 1990′s, appearing in Ernest Dickerson’s Juice (1992) and Above the Rim (1994), and giving a critically acclaimed performance opposite Janet Jackson in John Singleton’s Poetic Justice (1993).
Tupac Amaru Shakur was a lightning rod for a highly publicized West Coast vs. East Coast hip-hop feud. he was released after serving just eight months of his sentence, the result of a parole arrangement and a $1.4 million bond paid by Death Row label CEO Marion “Suge” Knight. The rapper signed with Death Row in late 1995, soon releasing the dark, two-disc All Eyez on Me (Number 1 pop, Number 1 R&B, 1996). On the album, Shakur attacked his enemies with furious threats of violence, while speaking of his own early death as inevitable. The album also included “How Do You Want It” (Number 1 pop, Number 1 R&B), “California Love” (Number 6 pop) (with Dr. Dre and Roger Troutman), and “Hit ‘Em Up,” on which Shakur claimed to have slept with the Notorious B.I.G.’s wife, singer Faith Evans.
Then, on September 7 1996, Shakur was shot near the Las Vegas Strip while riding in the passenger seat of Knight’s BMW. The shooting came about two hours after a scuffle that involved Shakur and Knight in the lobby of the MGM Grand Hotel (an incident that ultimately led to Knight, 31, being handed a nine-year prison sentence for violating his parole). Six days later (September 13,1996) Shakur died from his injuries. He was 25. No arrests were ever made. In addition, despite calls within the hip-hop community to halt the violence, the Notorious B.I.G. was killed in a similar fashion six months later. “No murder charges have been filed in either murder”

BEST LINES BY 2PAC
# My mama always used to tell me: ‘If you can’t find somethin’ to live for, you best find somethin’ to die for.
# I never killed anybody, I never raped anybody, I never committed no crimes that weren’t honorable.
# Let the Lord judge the criminals.
# For every dark night, there’s a brighter day.
# Behind every sweet smile, there is a bitter sadness that no one can ever see and feel.
# You know it’s funny, when it rains it pours they got money for wars, but can’t feed the poor.
# With all my fans I got a family again.
# Fear is stronger than love.
# Follow your heart, but take your brain with you.
# Death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies inside while still alive. Never surrender.
# I don’t have no fear of death. My only fear is coming back reincarnated.
# In my death, people will understand what I was talking about.
We Wish The Very Happy Birthday To Him !!
