Unfortunately, Tupac was unable to continue his training. He moved to
Oakland, California with the rest of his family. That's when Tupac began
to, as he called it, "Hang with the wrong crowd."
Tupac's public life began when he joined the rap group, digital
underground, firs as a tour dancer, then as a rapper. Not long before
the group achieved award winning success, Tupac released his first solo
album "2pacalypes Now", which was also a success.
While he maintained a thug image, Tupac was a man of contradictions,
recording sentimental raps in support of black woman, including Brenda's
Got A Baby, and Keep Ya Head Up. "Because I was raised by a woman
half my life, then thrown out onto the streets, its like I've got the woman's

||His stunning talent also got
him a role in the motion picture, the violent drama "Juice"
Tupac eventually released a second album
"Strictly for my
Niggaz", which was an even bigger success.
The highlight of Tupac's acting career came when he appeared in
"Poetic Justice" besides
Janet Jackson. The role made
household name and showed the world that music may not be Tupac's only
talent. However he faced a possibility of doing time in prison when he
was charged with assaulting the director of Menace II
being dropped from the cast of the movie.
What followed was a tour of courthouses and jail cells for Tupac such as
10 days in prison for assaulting a rapper with a baseball bat, and
charges for shooting 2 off-duty Atlanta police officers which charges
were eventually dropped.
In the midst of a role in the movie "Above the Rim" and a Platinum
album "Me against the
world," Tupac's rising career was
snagged. He was brought up on sexual assault charges by a woman he met
at a nightclub. Just 1 day before Tupac would be found guilty, Tupac was
shot five times while in a recording studio in New York.
|The attack was classed as
robbery, however later Tupac accused East-coast rappers including
"Puffy" Combs and The Notorious
B.I.G. of setting him up.
While in prison on sexual abuse charges, Tupac's new album Me Against
the world spent 4 weeks at number one on the charts.
Tupac spend 8 months in prison, before Death Row Records producer Suge
Knight paid he's 1 million dollar bail and also signed Tupac to Death
After his release, Tupac answered his critics by releasing his Death Row
"All eyez on
me, which has currently sold more than 6 million
copies, and featured other Death Row members Snoop Doggy
Dogg, and Dr Dre.

Bruce Seldon fight in Las Vegas in Suges car. A white Cadillac with four
people inside pulled alongside at an
intersection and one person opened fire. Tupac was hit 4 times while
Suge escaped with minor injuries. Tupac was brought to the University
Medical Center. On Friday, September 13, 1996, Tupac died after 6
days in critical condition. Tupac Shakur was pronounced dead at 4.03 pm,
his body was later cremated. He was only 25. There are many theories
to Tupac's death, however there is a suspicion that it could have have
been the rivalry between the West coast and East coast rappers.
