It’s hard to imagine that almost 20 years have passed since Tupac was taken away so brutally. What kind of amazing music would he have created in that time; what would he have done with the rest of his life? During his short career, and far past his death, Tupac has sold over 75 million albums worldwide. The double disc album All Eyez on Me is one of the best selling hip hop recordings of all time.
It’s only reasonable to understand why Tupac’s fans are still mourning his loss, and wish to commemorate his birthday every year. He’s an incomparable legend whose music is timeless, and it will forever be a part of our lives. HollywoodLifers, are you Tupac fans? Wish him a happy birthday in the comments!
