Plot Summary
Using interviews, photographs and home movies, this documentary presents the life of rapper Tupac Shakur. His mother, Afeni, is a Black Panther who spends part of her pregnancy in jail. Growing up in a politicized atmosphere, Shakur attends a performing arts high school in Baltimore, where he begins rapping. Success comes early, as do a series of legal problems, with arrests and accusations of violence against women leading up to his meteoric rise to fame and still-unsolved 1996 murder.

  • Lazin's remarkable achievement is to catch Tupac in the act of discovering himself. It's something to see. show more

  • Charismatic to a fault, he had the look of a prince, with a genuine smile; long, feminine eyelashes; and a forbiddingly shaved cranium. show more

  • Though there must be a dozen U.S. presidents who have never had a documentary made about them, the late Tupac Shakur could rate his own section in video stores, placed between "music" and "action." show more
