I know those who don't listen to rap will think of Tupac as just some rapper, but Tupac has been considered by many to be much more than that. Some
have called him a prophet, a spokesman, his lyrics aren't just your typical guns, drugs, sex stuff.
But I also know there are conspiracies concerning every celebrity, artist, politician who dies. I had heard there was a conspiracy here and never
really took time to look into it.
He isn't Elvis for Christ's sake. I listened to rap when I was in college. ANd people made more out of Tupac than he actually was. He was a
scumbag human being. Here's a list of his run ins with the law.
•1992 - Tupac was arrested after being involved in an altercation in which a stray bullet killed a child, but the charges were later dismissed.
•April 5, 1993 - Tupac spent 10 days in a Michigan prison for beating another rapper with a baseball bat.
•October 31, 1993 - Tupac allegedly stopped to help a black motorist who he felt was being harassed by the policemen. A fight broke out and Tupac
shot one policemen in the leg and the other in the buttocks. When it was determined that the policemen were intoxicated and carrying guns taken from
the police evidence room, the charges were dropped.
•November 18, 1993 - Shakur was arrested on the sexual abuse and sodomy charges and weapons charges in New York City. The sodomy and weapons charges
•November 10, 1994 - Tupac, slated to star in the movie Meance II, punched the director Allen Hughes. He spent 15 days in prison and was replaced in
the movie by Larenz Tate.
•November 30, 1994, Tupac Shakur was ambushed by three black men in the lobby of a recording studio in Times Square in New York City. The men robbed
him of over $35,000 in cash and jewelry and shot him five times - hitting his head, groin and hand.
•On September 7, 1996 in Las Vegas, Nevada, Shakur attended the Mike Tyson and Bruce Seldon boxing match. Allegedly after the match, Shakur was
involved in a fight in the lobby of the MGM Hotel. Later that evening he was shot in his car in a drive-by shooting. He suffered four gun shot wounds
and died in the University of Nevada Hospital six days later. Although there was much speculation about the murder being stimulated by an ongoing
rivalry between gangs associated with east and west coast rap recording companies, the murder was never officially solved.
Black male slippin in hail when will we prevail
Fearin jail but crack sales got me livin well
And the system's sucidal with this Thug's Life
Stayin strapped forever strapped in this drug life
God help me, cause I'm starvin, can't get a job
So I resort to violent robberies, my life is hard
Can't sleep cause all the dirt make my heart hurt
Put in work and shed tears for my dead peers
Mislead from childhood where I went astray
Till this day I still pray for a better way
Can't help but feel hopeless and heartbroke
From the start I felt the racism cause I'm dark
Couldn't quit the bull# make me represent
Hit the bar and played the star, everywhere I went
In my heart, I felt alone out here on my own
I close my eyes and picture home... on my block
He had a few positive songs when he was alive. Most were guns, drugs, hoes and racism. Not sure why anyone would think he's a prophet, what he
cares about was profit. I always thought he was a hypocrite. I thought he was racist. I thought he was a gangbanger. I thought he was a scumbag
racist. And I was right. Google some of his comments about white people. Google some of his lyrics. Google some of his associations. YOu'll see
what kind of person he was.
