The life and times of a young man, celebrity, driving force, artist, hero, criminal, philosohper, American, Black Panther, poet. This man contributed his life through the arts and music trying to reach the generation of like minded people. His family tree was violently shaken by the Amercian authorities in the 1970s which is where he got his momentum from. He knew his time was short and told the world so; tatooed on his back "LAUGH NOW, CRY LATER".
In the Event of My Demise by Tupac Amaru Shakur
"In the event of my Demise
when my heart can beat no more
I Hope I Die For A Principle
or A Belief that I had Lived 4
I will die Before My Time
Because I feel the shadow's Depth
so much I wanted 2 accomplish
before I reached my Death
I have come 2 grips with the possibility
and wiped the last tear from My eyes
I Loved All who were Positive
In the event of my Demise "
