With a legacy as influential as it is broad, taking in movies, poetry and of course music, Tupac is as popular since his wholly premature death as he was during his oh- too-short life, putting him in the same league as Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon and Elvis Presley. Tupac Shakur continues to inspire scores of young artists to pick up the mic, and millions still identify with his philosophy, lifestyle and artistic output. In the decade since that tragic evening in Las Vegas, he has not only remained an idol to consecutive generations of rap fans from all backgrounds, he has become the symbol for a whole way of life.
Tupac: The Lowdown is a 2 CD set which tells the complete story of his life, through spoken word biographies and astonishing previously unreleased interviews, all packaged together with booklets and posters featuring rarely seen photographs. Designed with the collector in mind, this set is a fitting tribute to a man who has become a true American hero.
