Personalities | Tupac Shakur | Nineties | Rock
New York-born rapper who has assumed near sainthood since his murder in 1996. Debut 2Pacalypse (1991) revealed talent, with Shakur mixing normal male bravado with more lyrical insight than his peers. Along with a successful acting career, he lived out the bad boy image – being shot, found guilty of assault – and was in jail when Me Against The World (1995) topped the US album charts. All Eyez On Me (1996) is essential.
