Most people tend to forget that the firebrand emcee was born in Harlem. The child of two Black Panthers, Tupac Shakur was born into the struggle. Today, April 7th, Tupac becomes only the sixth rap act to be voted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. One of Hip-Hop’s most prolific artists, Tupac recorded and released an enormous amount of material during his short but productive career and sold over 75 million records worldwide. More than just an emcee, Tupac was a poet, an actor, an activist and an icon. In fact, his spirit, his music and his legacy seem to resonate now more than ever. Tupac Lives!
