Tupac Shakur was a prolific rapper who mostly recorded for Death Row Records, co-founded by Suge Knight. Tupac's songs are most popularized for their intense, openly tragic themes, which have been described as a "gripping mixture of violence, misogyny, and spirituality".

Life

In 2005, Death Row released on DVD, Tupac: Live at the House of Blues, his final recorded live performance, an event on July 4, 1996. In August 2006, Tupac Shakur Legacy, an "interactive biography" by Jamal Joseph, arrived with previously unpublished family photographs, intimate stories, and over 20 detachable copies of his handwritten song lyrics, contracts, scripts, poetry, and other papers. In 2006, the Shakur album Pac's Life was released and, like the previous, was among the recording industry's most popular releases. Tupac is not the only rapper whose career has been shaped by his relationship with his mother. Because he was consistently lyrical about the role of women in his own life and the culture at large, this tribute to his mother, Afeni Shakur, is especially significant. As one of his most beloved tracks, “Dear Mama” details her struggles, both as a parent and a human being. Here Tupac has reached a point of appreciation and understanding for his mother, who raised him singlehandedly.

From the very beginning, Tupac made sure his rhymes were mixed with complex narratives that dealt with problems going on in the inner cities across America. The song “Brenda’s Got a Baby” tells the story of a 12-year-old girl molested by her family, which leads to her being impregnated. The situation in the song leads to her being strung out in the streets and eventually dead. Tupac tells this story in a single verse painting a vivid picture of a young girl whose life just kept going downhill. (Source: rhymejunkie.com)
