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
