Tupac was born in East Harlem, in 1971.

They named their son honoring Peruvian innovative Tupac Amaru. Since his youth the son resided among individuals who have been always in and from prison.

The proceeds out of this record look unpleasant set alongside the revenue of Me Against the Planet, that has been released in 1995, after Tupac began serving his time in prison. The most effective single in the record was Cherished Mamma. Dear Mamma was accompanied by Temptations and the singles Numerous Tears. The entire record debuted in the very best of Billboard 200 and remained on graphs for weeks. 240 thousand records were offered by it throughout the week following its launch and was certified 2x Platinum by the ending of 1995.

Looks like we don't have Tupac salary information. Sorry!


#Fact
1Inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2017.
2Auditioned for the role of Gerald "Gee Money" Wells in New Jack City(1991) but was turned down because he was than that of leading star Wesley Snipes.
3Died on the same day that the pilot episode of Everybody Loves Raymond (1996) premiered.
4His godmother Assata Shakur, was found guilty of the 1973 murder of a New Jersey state trooper. She broke out of prison and fled to Cuba. In 2013 she was added to the FBI's list of Most Wanted Terrorists.
5Was the original choice for Jody in Baby Boy (2001).
6Was John Singleton's first choice to star in Shaft (2000) when the film was going to be called Son Of Shaft.
7A fan of Tim Roth, Shakur was excited when he found out he was going to be in a movie with Roth. Roth, however, didn't like the idea of a rapper being in the movie with him, as he didn't know he was an actor before he became a rapper. Roth's attitude changed, when they tested together and the two were very good friends until Shakur's death.
8Has another posthumous album tentatively tiled "Ready 2 Die". It's also his 14th album. [2005]
9"Loyal To The Game" was released on Dec. 14. It is the 9th album of his to be released after his death. [December 2004]
10New album 'Pac's Life' (originally titled 'Ready 2 Die') is released. [November 2006]
11Was planning to record with the Wu-Tang Clan near the end of his life, as he revealed his admiration for their sound and lyrics.
12His godfather was Geronimo Ji Jaga, a member of Black Panther Party for Self Defense, a radical group advocating violence in obtaining civil rights for African-Americans. Shakur's parents, Afeni Shakur and Billy Garland, were also members of the group.
13Is portrayed by Anthony Mackie in Notorious (2009).
14Tupac died with less than $100,000 in the bank.
15Ranked #3 on VH1's 50 Greatest Hip Hop Artists.
16Mentioned in the rap-rock song "Mope" by Bloodhound Gang, along with personalities like Luciano Pavarotti, The Notorious B.I.G., Falco, Tori Spelling, Bo Jackson and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
17His favorite singer was Prince.
18Along with friends, he founded the "Junior Black Panthers" in his youth.
19Moved out of his mother's house when he was 17.
20His 1996 song "Me and My Girlfriend" (from the rapper's posthumously released "Don Killuminati" album) chronicles Shakur's relationship with his pistol, which he frequently carried for protection. The "finger fucking" Shakur refers to in the song is actually a euphemism for pulling the trigger. The song was covered in 2003 by Beyoncé Knowles and Jay Z with a slightly altered chorus; it reached the top ten of the American pop charts.
21Recorded close to 150 songs during the final year of his life, and often completed three songs per day in the same period. Shakur also wrote lyrics in the studio and often performed his verses in one take. He felt that rappers who could not perform their verses properly on the first take weren't ready to be rappers. R&B music, on the other hand, was worthy of multiple takes for the vocal tracks, he felt.
22Tupac used the Roland D70 synthesizer for his album "All Eyez On Me" (as seen in an interview with MTV in 1996).
23His number one single, "California Love" was certified at sales of 2 million copies in 1998.
24Shakur renamed his publishing company to "Joshua's Dream" in honor of a young, terminally ill child whose dying wish was to meet him.
25Shakur was shot in Las Vegas on September 7, 1996 at approximately 11:15pm, at the corner of Flamingo and Koval streets.
26His first album, "2Pacalypse Now" was released November 12, 1991 and was certified gold. It contains 13 songs and reached number 13 on the R&B/Hip-Hop albums.
27"The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory" was recorded and mixed in a mere 7 days in August 1996. It was released November 5, 1996 and debuted at number one on both the pop album and R&B/Hip-Hop album charts, with 663,000 albums sold in its first week. It is certified at 7 million albums sold in the US and 28 million albums worldwide, making it both Tupac's best-selling album.
28His career triumphs--a number one album and pop single-- both happened on the 13th: Rap's first double album, "All Eyez on Me" (certified by the RIAA as of December 2006 at 9 million copies sold) hit store shelves on February 13th 1996. His only number one pop single "How Do U Want It?", reached the apex of the Hot 100 on July 13th 1996. Sadly, it was on September 13th (a Friday) that Shakur succumbed to injuries sustained in a Las Vegas shooting.
29He completed the 27 song "All Eyez On Me", considered by many to be his magnum opus, in only two weeks. Often cited as rap's first double album, "All Eyez" sessions began just hours after Shakur was released from jail. Released on February 13th 1996, the album debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 album chart.
30Gang member Orlando Anderson, often cited as Tupac's killer, was later murdered himself during an altercation at a LA car wash, on May 29th 1998. It should be noted that Anderson was never charged in the slaying.
31Shakur considered singer Don McClean (best known as the singer/songwriter of the 1972 hit "American Pie") and Kate Bush as two influences in his life. Shakur also saw McClean's hit "Vincent" (a tale of painter Vincent Van Gogh) as one particular inspiration. In addition, Shakur cited African-American poet Maya Angelou and William Shakespeare as being equally important to him.
32The song "To Live and Die in LA", was called by Shakur (who recorded the song under the name "Makaveli", for the "Seven Day Theory" album) "California Love, part 2-- without gay-ass Dre." It is unknown if "gay-ass Dre" is serious slur against Dr. Dre, who left Shakur's label Death Row records shortly after producing two tracks for "All Eyez On Me".
33Recorded much of his vocals of the "All Eyez On Me" album with a Neumann U87 microphone. In addition, entire album was recorded on analog tape. This was considered somewhat archaic by 1995 recording standards, as much of the recording industry had transitioned to digital recording. (However, it should be noted that Dr. Dre, who produced two songs for the album still uses analog tape to record his music, as of late 2006).
34Used an interpolation of the 1984 El DeBarge song "A Dream" for his hit "I Ain't Mad At Ya". Tupac's version, however, is at a faster tempo than the original.
35Cited Prince as an inspiration and sampled his music on the "All Eyez On Me" album. Shakur mentioned in an MTV interview that "he [Prince] loves women like I love women.".
36Read the article in "Entertainment Weekly" about his "Me Against The World" album's debut at number one, while incarcerated. The album's title song also appeared in Bad Boys (1995), which opened in March-- while Shakur was behind bars.
37Was a fan of actor Tim Roth and was delighted to learn he would work with him on Gridlock'd (1997), released after Shakur's death.
38His song "Hit 'Em Up", which Shakur considered a "classic battle record" is scathing attack on one-time friend 'Notorious BIG', Bad Boy Records, and Sean Combs. In addition, Shakur claimed that he slept with Faith Evans (Notorious BIG's wife) in the song's lyrics.
39The harmonica in "So Many Tears" is a sample from Stevie Wonder's song "That Girl", which spent 9 weeks at number one on the R&B charts in 1982.
40Biological Father Is Billy Garland.
41First music artist to have a #1 LP while being in jail
42Wrote a song, but died before he could finish it. Rap artist Eminem finished the song with his own lyrics and released it shortly afterwards.
43Appeared on Forbes' "Top Earning Dead Celebrities" list in 2002, 2003 and 2004 with earnings of $7 million, $12 million and $5 million in each respective year.
44He is the first rap/hip-hop artist in history to have a wax model of himself set to be placed in Madamme Tussaud's in Las Vegas

#Quote
1Thug Life to me is dead.
2When you do rap albums, you got to train yourself. You got to constantly be in character.
3Dre was one of my heroes in the music industry. If he's not down for his homeboys, I don't wanna be a part of him or around him.
4If I win and get the money, then the Oakland Police department is going to buy a boys' home, me a house, my family a house, and a Stop Police Brutality Center.
5I never killed anybody, I never raped anybody, I never committed no crimes that weren't honorable.
6America wants its respect.
7If you believe in God, believe in Death Row East.
8I don't have to talk about whether or not I got raped in jail.
9With all my fans I got a family again.
10I'll probably be punished for hard living.
11I just don't know how to deal with so many people giving me that much affection. I never had that in my life.
12The only time I have problems is when I sleep.
13Let the Lord judge the criminals.
14There's nobody in the business strong enough to scare me.
15I worked hard all my life as far as this music business. I dreamed of the day when I could go to New York and feel comfortable and they could come out here and be comfortable.
16I just spent 11 and a half months in a maximum-security jail, got shot five times, and was wrongly convicted of a crime I didn't commit.
17I'm a reflection of the community.
18In my mind I'm a blind man doin' time.
19We all gonna die, we bleed from similar veins.
20I'm 23 years old. I might just be my mother's child, but in all reality, I'm everybody's child. Nobody raised me; I was raised in this society.
21Somebody help me, tell me where to go from here cause even Thugs cry, but do the Lord care?
22What I learned in jail is that I can't change. I can't live a different lifestyle - this is it. This is the life that they gave and this is the life that I made.
23I would rather have been shot straight-up in cold blood-but to be set up? By people who you trusted? That's bad.
24I don't see myself being special; I just see myself having more responsibilities than the next man. People look to me to do things for them, to have answers.
25It's a struggle for every young Black man. You know how it is, only God can judge us.
26Is it a crime, to fight, for what is mine?
27I don't have no fear of death. My only fear is coming back reincarnated.
28Don't change on me. Don't extort me unless you intend to do it forever.
29My mama always used to tell me: 'If you can't find somethin' to live for, you best find somethin' to die for.'
30I think I'm a natural-born leader. I know how to bow down to authority if it's authority that I respect.
31It seems like every time you come up something happens to bring you back down.
32All I'm trying to do is survive and make good out of the dirty, nasty, unbelievable lifestyle that they gave me.
33It's the game of life. Do I win or do I lose? One day they're gonna shut the game down. I gotta have as much fun and go around the board as many times as I can before it's my turn to leave.
34But I know for a fact that had I had a father, I'd have some discipline. I'd have more confidence. Your mother cannot calm you down the way a man can. Your mother can't reassure you the way a man can. My mother couldn't show me where my manhood was. You need a man to teach you how to be a man.
35If you walked by a street and you was walking on the concrete and you saw a rose growing from the concrete, even if it had messed up petals and it was a little to the side you would marvel at just seeing a rose grow through concrete. So why is it that when you see some ghetto kid grow out of the dirtiest circumstance and he can talk and he can sit across the room and make you cry, make you laugh, all you can talk about is my dirty rose, my dirty stems and how I am leaning crooked to the side, you can't even see that I've come up from out of that
36I swear, if they hadn't tried to ruin me, I never would have ended up being a rapper. I probably would have been a preacher or something.
37I'm not saying I'm gonna change the world, but I guarantee that I will spark the brain that will change the world.
38The reason why I could get into acting was because it takes nothing to get out of who I am and go into somebody else.
39The only thing that comes to a sleeping man is dreams.
40Reality is wrong. Dreams are for real.
41Everybody's at war with different things...I'm at war with my own heart sometimes". In Vibe interview 2/96
