Today Tupac would have been celebrating her 47th Birthday!


In East Harlem, New York 47 years ago, a child was born. Lesane Parish Crooks, later known as Tupac Shakur.

If you seen the movie " All Eyez In Me" you have learned a great deal about the late Tupac Shakurs life, like for instance. Tupac began his career as a roadie, helping load and unload tour buses, then he was a backup dancer and MC for the alternative hip hop group Digital Underground.  After paying his dues, he became one of the most popular rappers of all times!

His life was cut short in on. September 7, 1996, Shakur was shot in a drive-by shooting at the intersection  in Las Vegas, Nevada. He was taken to a hospital Nevada, by Suge Knight; he died from his injuries six days later.
