tupac-reader x noavi

a raging headache barred me from posting this yesterday, which marked thirteen years since TUPAC SHAKUR was shot and killed in las vegas, nevada. above is the cover of the course reader used when i TAed the famous class at uc-berkeley back in 2005 (no, seriously). whether you were/are a fan of his music or not, he lived a notably fascinating though short life. a man profoundly troubled by the dualities and conflicts in his life, he moved me deeply.

above is my favorite clip from the academy award nominated documentary “TUPAC: resurrection”

political activist & forever the consummate artist, RIP PAC.
