2016 is a pivotal year for Tupac Shakur. There will be increased attention to him and his life. Hollywood is releasing a biopic movie about Tupac this autumn and he gets inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as well as a star on the Hollywood walk of fame also. Tupac Shakur: Uncategorized contains several images and portraits of the artist taken from 1994 until the last shoot Chi Modu did with him nine months before he passed. Many of the images have never been published. Is always surprising to people that there’s still unreleased images of Tupac twenty years after he departed. Everyone knew the impact that he had on the new generations. Most of the images were either taken on a 4x5 view camera or a medium format 6x7 camera. Entirely on film which accounts for the richness in detail rarely seen today. We believe Chi Modu is probably the only one in the world that has a large enough body of work of Tupac Shakur to warrant a book of images of him exclusively; until now there has not been a photography pictorial book about him of this magnitude.

Chi first picked up a camera while a student at Rutgers. After honing his skills at the International Center of Photography, he landed a job at The Source, which was the definitive magazine of hip hop culture. It was here that Chi developed relationships with the biggest icons of the hip hop movement, including Tupac Shakur, Notorious B.I.G., Mary J. Blige, and L-L Cool J, most of whom were not yet famous. In addition to shooting over 30 cover photos for The Source as their Director of Photography, Chi was able to capture the musicians in candid, unexpected moments, due to his disarming manner and unique perspective. His photos include some of the most groundbreaking, memorable images of that era, including Tupac Smoking and Biggie WTC (standing in from of the World Trade Towers). He not only chronicled and defined the most important phase of the hip hop movement, now a global force, he also was able to define the artists and show them as real people, rather than one-dimensional celebrities.
