Long Live Tupac Legacy ( )
  MikeOpondo | Jul 5, 2013 |
It's bittersweet to read into the life of a brilliant artist. Tupac was amazingly talented. His poems were all good, though not all were great. I read this book in about an hour since it's not very long and each poem said something about his life. The last poem in the book gave me goosebumps. Overall I love poetry books and this book by a modern day poet/artist was no different. R.I.P. 8/10 ( )

A beautiful collection of poems displayed both in the typed as well as original hand-written formats, where the reader can see occasional edits or symbols drawn in place of words. The poems are honest and eloquent and show that Tupac had some excellent insight into life. Recommended for poetry fans. ( )

The poems assembled for this collection, written by Tupac in his teenage years, are not exceptional in their own right. However, they lend us crucial insight into his life and artistic development. These are the poetic seeds of a then budding lyricist and performer, containing shadows of the brilliance soon to bloom, that leave us now to be thankful for the art that was given and to yearn for all that could have been.

A selection of Tupac's poetry written between 1989 and 1991. The book is formatted with his original writing and a typed transcription of the work. The book is separated into thematic sections including romance and politics.
It's an interesting look into the interior life of an artist. ( )
