Tupac Amaru Shakur, born Lesane Parish Crooks on June 16, 1971 in New York, died September 13, 1996 in Las Vegas, Nevada (murdered), also known by his stage names 2Pac and Makaveli, was an American rapper and actor. Tupac is one of the most influential hip-hop artists ever, with great international success. He is also one of the most successful artists of all time. He has sold over 100 million albums, making him one of the best-selling artists of all time. Tupac was also a film actor and community activist.

MTV ranked Tupac as number one on its list of the greatest rappers of all time. He has become a cultural icon due to his successes and influences in music and poetry. Tupac’s songs are about growing up among violence in the ghetto, about racism and other societal problems and about conflicts with other rappers. His music is known for its raw descriptions of violence, drug and alcohol abuse in a message that advocates political, economic, social and ethnic equality. Tupac has been criticized for his controversial lyrics about violence and drugs.

Tupac was sued on several occasions and also experienced many other legal problems. Among other things, he was shot five times and robbed in the lobby of a recording studio in New York. After the incident, Tupac’s suspicions grew that other people in the rap industry had been aware of the incident and still had not warned him. This controversy contributed to the rivalry between East Coast and West Coast hip-hop. Tupac was later convicted of sexual assault. After serving eleven months of his sentence, he was released from prison following an appeal funded by Marion “Suge” Knight, CEO of Death Row Records. In exchange for Sugar’s assistance, Tupac agreed to release three albums under the record label.

In September 1996, Tupac was shot while driving in a car on his way to the nightclub Club 662 in Las Vegas, owned by Marion “Suge” Knight, where Tupac was to perform. Six days later, on September 13, 1996, he died of his injuries. There are a variety of theories as to who is behind the murder, but in the 2010s, detective Greg Kading, who investigated the murder of Christopher Wallace, also known as The Notorious B.I.G. and Biggie Smalls, the book Murder Rap: The Untold Story of the Biggie Smalls & Tupac Shakur Murder Investigations; Kading claims that Sean “Puffy” Combs ordered the murder of Tupac Shakur and that he hired the Southside Crips gang to carry out the murder. “Puffy” promised “Keffe D”, Orlando “BabyLane” Anderson and “Zip” a million dollars for the murdered Suge and Tupac. “Puffy” Combs ordered the murder of Tupac Shakur because he wanted the rivalry between East Coast and West Coast hip-hop to end.
