An illustrated and interactive biography of the remarkable Tupac Shakur, this book will feature rare family photos, reproductions of song lyrics, poems, memorabilia, and personal papers. It will include approximately 20 removable facsimiles, an hour-long CD, and a paper-over-board slipcase. "Tupac Shakur: Life Through My Eyes" will begin where Tupac's life did, in the middle of the chaos that surrounded his mother, Black Panther Afeni Shakur, and her involvement in the Panther 21 case. Nearly born in jail, Tupac came into the world just a month after his mother was acquitted. From this frenetic beginning, the story will follow Tupac's life, from his early childhood in Harlem and the Bronx to his emergence as a young artist at Baltimore School for the Arts and his eventual rise to one of the bestselling rap artists of all time. Informed by Tupac's own words, set off by intimate stories and quotes from Afeni Shakur and others who were close to him, and illustrated with never-before-seen, removable reproductions of personal items, Tupac's roots and influences, his beliefs, creative process, tireless work habits, and aspirations will emerge, giving readers a sense of who he was on a personal level.About the Author:
