A chronological scrapbook, Tupac captures the rapper as an infant, a struggling adolescent, an aspiring adult, and as the fiscal-and-musical giant he became. While the candid shots add humanity to the armored persona, the most moving depict the first drafts of his groundbreaking hits. Rebel is a coherent, cohesive, and easily accessible biography, punctuated by quotes from Shakur and his close business and musical associates. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
"Tupac was a passionate artist who inspired even more passionate idolatry, one of the few rappers -- alive or dead -- who truly merits a volume like this." -- Rolling Stone
