"Imperfection is inherited. Therefore we all sin. But fighting the war of sin is the greatest war of all because we all die in the end, no matter how hard we try" -- Tupac Amaru Shakur (T.I.P)
"Though are hands are chained like they are, they haven't taken music from us yet. So that's how I'll fight. People tell me don't quit like everyone else. I wont have no fear." Tupac Shakur
“Tupac Amaru Shakur (June 16, 1971 - September 13, 1996) was an influential, best-selling hip hop artist, considered by many to be the greatest rapper of all time. His aliases include 2Pac, Pac, and Makaveli. Among his fans especially, he is known as simply "Tupac". The names "Tupac Amaru" and "Shakur" mean Shining Serpent in Quechua and Thankful (to God) in Arabic, respectively. The name "Tupac Amaru" comes from Tupac Amaru II, grandson of the last Sapa Inca (Tupac Amaru). Contrary to popular belief, Tupac Amaru was not Tupac's first given name (nor one he chose himself); his mother re-named him shortly after birth and had his birth certificate changed to reflect the name by which we know him. Most of Tupac's raps concerned growing up around violence and hardships in ghettos, racial inequality and sometimes his feud with fellow rappers in the United States. A recent VIBE magazine poll showed Tupac Shakur to be the greatest rapper of all time in the public opinion.”
