  • Tupac Shakur Is Still Alive - 1,363 words
    On September 7, 1996, Tupac Amaru Shakur was riding in the passenger side of a black BMW driven by Marion Suge Knight, president of Death Row Records. Tupac and Suge had just finished watching Mike Tyson defeat Bruce Seldon at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. Tupac was standing up through the sunroof while the car was stopped at a traffic light. The Cadillac containing the gunmen passed an entourage of Tupac's allies, many of them bodyguards. Four unidentified men pulled alongside Suge's car, fired 13 rounds, and sped away. No one gives chase and there were no witnesses on the street. How come? Why not, especially after a heavyweight fight? Tupac was shot in multiple places including his ...

  • Lifestyle Of A Rapper: The Life Of Tupac Shakur - 1,057 words
    Tupac has always been the person who's made up the game-always," says Afeni Shakur, Tupac's 47-year-old mother, a week after his New York arraignment and a day after a hearing in Atlanta. A tiny, dark-complexioned woman with close-cropped hair and deeply etched dimples, Afeni lives in a modest apartment in Decatur, Georgia, an Atlanta suburb, and speaks with an urgency that, she says, comes from her lifelong political activism. "He would have make-believe singing groups," she continues, "and he would be Prince, or Ralph in New Edition. He was always the lead." But life wasn't quite that simple for Tupac Amaru Shakur. Named after an Inca chief, Tupac Amaru means "shining serpent," referring t ...

    ... at fucked-up childhood. The reason why I could get into acting was because it takes nothin' to get out of who I am to get into somebody else." When Tupac was 12, Afeni enrolled him in the 127th Street Ensemble, a theater group in Harlem. "I wanted Tupac to focus on something since he was becoming of age," she says. In his first performance, Tupac played Travis in A Raisin In the Sun. Tupac leans back on the sofa and beams at the memory. "Right now I can remember the bug biting me right there. I lay on a couch and played sleep for the first scene. Then I woke up and I was the only person onstage. I can remember thinking..." He lowers his voice to a whisper. "`This is the best shit in the ...

    ... th a rubber doll to the latest dance craze. Just as things were again beginning to look up for Tupac, he learned that his mother was addicted to crack. "I was on the road with D.U. and called my homies in Marin City just to say whassup, and they told me my moms was buying dope from somebody. It fucked me up. I started blocking her out of my mind," he says, fingering his gold watch. Neither Tupac nor Afeni will talk much about that period. "After she started smoking dope and all that," says Tupac, "I, like, lost respect for her." He draws a circle in the air with his cigarette. "In New York and all those times we was growing up, she was my hero. She was like breaking men down. I'd be like ...

    ... and that this is a black man that's still tryin' to grow, you know?" By December, Singleton, who Tupac considers his "one friend in Hollywood" and was planning to cast the rapper as the lead in his next film, Higher Learning, was forced by Columbia Pictures to drop his star because of Tupac's recent arrests in Atlanta and New York. "Basically, since all this stuff is happening, the media is trying to play `good nigga vs. bad nigga' and say I don't want him in the movie," Singleton says. "That ain't true. In their minds, it doesn't matter if he's guilty or not. They don't want nothin' to do with him. I talked to Tupac and said, `I still got your back.'" Atlanta is considered the black mec ...

  • The Life And Music Of Tupac Shakur - 983 words
    What does it take to be an icon of the 21st century? An icon is a symbol representing what a person did to be admired by many people and achieved many things rarely an ordinary person can do. I would consider Tupac to be an icon of the 21st century because he became a living symbol of his generations to many hip-hop and rap fans all over the world. He was the son of Afeni Shakur and Billy Garland. At his teens, his family moved to Baltimore, MD. He attended The Baltimore School for the Performing Arts and studied acting and ballet. At this school, the teachers had an impression of Tupac that he had an outstanding potential. Unfortunately, he had to move to Oakland, CA with his family and tha ...

    The more things change, the more they stay the same "The Times They are a-Changin'," or so 60's singer/songwriter Bob Dylan thought. But have we really matured enough as people to say that racism and prejudice are no longer words in the English vocabulary? Most people like to think so, but the facts paint a different picture. The novel, The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzgerald can be used to illustrate these points. In the mid-20's, when American author F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote The Great Gatsby, it was common to use words to describe African American people that today would be seen as offensive and degrading.

  • Causes And Effects Of Juvenile Crime - 1,024 words
    I feel that one of the biggest problems that the United States is faced with in the present day is juvenile crime. Juvenile crime does not only affect the individuals who commit the crime, it also affects the victim of the crime. This also affects the juvenile in their adult lives as the crime can be on their record as long as they live. Experts still have not found the main reason why juveniles commit crimes. However, they have come up with a number of reasons of why juveniles commit crimes, which I will be discussing in this paper.. The largest, and most common risk factor is the demise of the family life and the increase in family violence. Many say that how you are raised will make you t ...

Additionally African rulers did attempt to stop trade with the Europeans such as Queen Nzinga Mbande known as the unconquerableof the Matamba Congo region. She fought off the Spanish from 1620 to approximately the 1660's. In 1938 James completed the manuscript of his most important work, The Black Jacobins. To a Euro-American audience still in serious denial about the reality of slavery, James graphically revealed the brutality inflicted by nascent capitalism. The Black Jacobins also refuted much of the mythology surroun ...

  • Makaveli Gangsta Rap - 1,137 words
    From cool jazz to Chicago blues, gospel to R&B, reggae, and gangsta rap. For a century, African-Americans, Blacks, Negro's and or Niggas, or (what ever label or category is decided this millennium), have been in the vanguard of recorded music in every style imaginable. Rap's origins stretch far back to African oral tradition; it has a more immediate predecessor in the spoken-word expressionism of 60's activists like the Last Poets, or LeRoi Jones (later known as Amiri Baraka), who performed activist poetry over the New York Art Ensemble's free jazz. But, it was in the early 70s, in New York's inner-city neighborhoods in the Bronx and Brooklyn, that mc's began rapping spoken rhymes about stre ...

    ... had time to realize any of these embodiments. Shakur himself often said that he expected he'd die by the sword before he reached thirty. He died at the age of twenty five. Following his passing, Shakur's label released an album, The Don Killuminati, under the pseudonym "Makaveli." The cover depicted Shakur nailed to a cross under a crown of thorns, with a map Of the country's major gang areas superimposed on it. Shakur was upfront about his troubled life in the 1995 release "Me Against The World," a multi-million-selling album that contained the ominously titled tracks "If I Die 2Nite" and "Death Around The Corner." With lyrics like "It ain't easy being me - will I see the penitentiary, ...

    The name Tupac Shakur is familiar with everyone. He was most remembered for his tremendous impact on the rap music industry. Tupac died on September 13, 1996 over a so-called West Coast, East Coast Rivalry. Not only did Tupac Shakur speak his mind in his songs, but also in his interviews and public appearances. He was not the type of rap artist that started recording in the studio for the fame, but rather for the chance to educate the world. Still today, he is one of the most popular recording artists. If you were to visit a record store, his albums would be rare to find. What is even more rare than his released songs are his unheard and unreleased ones. These songs are most craved by any Tu ...

  • Movies About Da Hood - 1,447 words
    I have elected to take a closer look at movies that deal with the ghetto social institution. There have been several movies that attempt to depict the harshness of growing up in predominantly black urban neighborhoods. The three films that I have selected are what I believe to be the top three films in this genre. They are Boyz N Da Hood, Menace to Society, and Juice. All of these films try to send a message about what it is like to live in da hood. The first film, "Boyz N Da Hood" marked the directorial debut of John Singleton, a gifted director. It seems as if he put his heart into making this film. There would be mixed emotions from many people about this film, but specifically you knew S ...

  • Does Rap Music Cause Violence - 1,081 words
    Since the late 1980's rap music has been called the Anti Christ in our culture, because of it's so-called influence in people's life. People swear up and down that the music is why people, specially the youth resort to violent crimes. I think by saying this they are trying to cover up the real truth by giving simple answers. Rap is defined as a style of popular music consisting of improvised rhymes performed to a rhythmic accompaniment. The first rap song was made in the late 70's, the songs were seven to eight minutes long and was mostly used in small clubs to dance to. It didn't really become popular until the early 80's. Over the years it has become mainstream music, everyone is listening ...

  • Rap And Censorship - 1,042 words
    ... pro-homosexual lyrics. Other states including Virginia have followed suit by passing the same law. This means that millions of dollars in stock could potentially be removed from companies such as Time Warner if the state decides it doesn't approve of any one album produced by that company. This gives the government a huge amount of power and control over the artistic content of a company's label. Local governments practice censorship even more often than the federal government. In Detroit, Michigan for example, the Pontiac Silverdome hosted its first rap concert ever, only to have fights break out among the spectators throughout the concert. Concert-planners admitted they were not prepa ...
