Tupac Amaru Shakur (June 16, 1971 - September 13, 1996), best known
by his stage names 2Pac (or Pac for short) and Makaveli was an
American rapper and actor. Shakur has sold over 75 million albums
worldwide as of 2010, making him one of the best-selling music
artists in the world. Rolling Stone named him the 86th Greatest
Artist of All Time. Shakur began his career as a roadie, backup
dancer, and MC for the alternative hip hop group Digital
Underground, eventually branching off as a solo artist.The themes
of most of Shakur's songs revolved around the violence and hardship
in inner cities, racism and other social problems. Both of his
parents and several other of his family were members of the Black
Panther Party, whose ideals were reflected in his songs. During the
latter part of his career, Shakur was a vocal participant in the
so-called East Coast-West Coast hip hop rivalry, becoming involved
in conflicts with other rappers, producers and record-label staff
members, most notably The Notorious B.I.G. and his label Bad Boy
Records. On September 7, 1996, Shakur was shot multiple times in a
drive-by shooting at the intersection of Flamingo Road and Koval
Lane in Las Vegas, Nevada. He was taken to the Southern Nevada
University Medical Center, where he died six days later.
