September 13, 1996, the world lost a true visionary. Tupac Shakur also known by his stage names 2Pac and later Makaveli was more than just a rapper. Sure he sold millions of records and had suburban white people quaking in their boots every time their kids played his record but Shakur was also a promising actor and a social activist. Shakur’s tracks are known for advocating political, economic, social and racial equality, as well as his raw descriptions of violence, drug and alcohol abuse and conflicts with the law. In the era of bling, you are sorely missed.
