2Pac was raised in California's impoverished neighborhoods amidst a time of heavy racial tension and Reagan's war on drugs. He is seen here in this picture taking a relaxed boxing stance, his face locked in a focused expression. Shakur seemed to live his life like a movie; everything he did he did with passion and natural adeptness, and his albums were his musical masterpieces that coincided with everything he lived through. I think he lived his life exactly as he envisioned himself living.
In retrospect, when "What's Ya Phone Number?" from Tupac released, I was way too young to be listening to a song this graphic. But I pretty much know the words and turned out to be pretty productive in life. This song is ratchet as hell though. Still like it. #Tupac
