The Rose That Grew from Concrete
On Sept. Twenty years later, while his legacy as a rapper and entertainer is still debated in barbershops and Twitter feeds, his impact is undeniable. Shakur was born in Harlem, N. Growing up around activists involved in black liberation movements would play a huge role in the social awareness of his music. Like many musicians, and all of us, he was not an uncomplicated person.
His talent was unbounded, a raw force that commanded attention and respect. His death was tragic — a violent homage to the power of his voice. His legacy is indomitable — remaining vibrant and alive. Written in his own hand at the age of nineteen, they embrace his spirit, his energy and his ultimate message of hope. These poems, which Tupac wrote from the heart, will encourage people to take the first steps necessary to see his literary importance, as well as have us acknowledge the life struggles of black men. There is no better way to get inside the mind of an artist than to examine his artistic expressions: sharing his sensitivity, insight, revolutionary mind, fears, passions, and sense of humour, Tupac's stature and recognition as a rapper is clear and unequivocal. After one more DU record, he went solo, and the following five years were his most fruitful artistically.

Packaging should be the same as what is found in a retail store, unless the item is handmade or was packaged by the manufacturer in non-retail packaging, such as an unprinted box or plastic bag. See details for additional description. This book has so much wisdom and candor from a person who despite the media's attempts to make him just another rapper, comes out smelling like a rose. I just had this strange thought of Shakur sitting with Princess Diana and coming together to assist a nation of troubled, lost and angry teens. It could have been very cool to see them really turn the collars around on the stereotypes and collaborate for the good of youth. We have a generation of kids that will never pick up a pad of paper and write with a pen again.
