Artist, Poet, Actor, Revolutionary, Legend- Tupac Shakur. The story will finally be told via a 464 page hardcover autobiography by author Staci Robinson. In the first ever Estate-authorized biography, fans will be taken on a journey through a fully illustrated experience with photos, mementos, handwritten poetry, musings, and more.
Tupac Shakur is one of the greatest and most controversial artists of all time. More than a quarter of a century after his tragic death in 1996 at the age of just twenty-five, he continues to be one of the most misunderstood, complicated and prolific figures in modern history. Tupac’s unapologetic lyrics, for which he was villainized by many at the time, read in these pages as prophecy. His cry of outrage in a country that repeatedly told Black men and women that their lives did not matter, continues to inspire his fans around the world.
In Tupac Shakur, author and screenwriter Staci Robinson—who knew Tupac as a young man and who was entrusted by his mother, Afeni Shakur, to write his biography—peels back the myths and unpacks the complexities that have shadowed Tupac’s existence. With exclusive access to his private notebooks, letters, unpublished lyrics and uncensored conversations with those who knew and loved him best, Robinson tells a powerful story of a life defined by politics and art, and a man driven by equal parts brilliance and impulsiveness.
Tupac Shakur: The Authorized Biography is now available on Amazon for pre-order (Click Here). Listed at $35, the biography does not have an official artwork for its cover as of this writing.
