ABOUT THE BOOK
Tupac Amaru Shakur was not just a rapper; he was a modern-day poet. He even released a very well-written book of poetry, The Rose that Grew From Concrete. He was so much more than an entertainer, so much more than a rhyme spitter.
The emotion and heart felt behind Tupac’s lyrics is what endeared him to fans. The artist seemed to rap from his very soul, with every part of his being. He was an enigma: loud, brash and gritty, but also warm and charismatic. No matter how volatile his persona, or the “Thug Life” tatted on his belly, you knew that deep down, Pac was one of the “good guys.” Or, at the very least, one of the guys who wanted to be good.

EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK
In hip-hop, he used “2Pac” as his stage name and was arguably the best to ever grace the mic. Even those who disagree would never dare deny that he is in the conversation. To this day, no artist has even come close to threatening his position.
Pac is from a time when all was good and pure in hip-hop. He very rarely, if ever, rapped about money, cars, or clothes. He didn’t talk about being rich. 2Pac found a way to keep his lyrical content relevant in spite of his eventual wealth and success.
He was also not big on endorsements and business ventures. He didn’t own any sports franchises or peddle any fragrances. He was an emcee. Period.
2Pac’s impact as an artist is inexplicable. He made it okay to be emotional. Proving that a man could do so without being “soft,” because his music was anything but. Thanks to the him, the mainstream world saw that some “thugs” were actually educated, and had good hearts, but perhaps, were simply dealt a bad hand in life.
