It is almost amazing to fans to see the amount of footage from deceased artists that still exists. As people celebrate the birthday of Tupac many radio and music channels has brought back old footage of the rapper in various ways. MTV unveiled some interesting photos on the website that provided a glimpse back into the “Live and Die in L.A.” video.
Tupac did a lot of things in a short time frame. There are lots of videos on YouTube. There are a plethora of photos that fans may have taken with the artist. The video shoots, however, provide a lot of content because the footage shows Tupac in place doing what he loves best. When Tupac became a member of Death Row he seemed happier. This is reflected in photos from the “All Eyes on Me” and “Machiavelli” albums.
Fans that see Shakur in these photos still have a hard time believing that the rapper is gone. A large number of rappers has paid tribute to him. Countless stars like Eminem, Jhene Aiko, Drake and Lil’ Wayne have all been influenced by him. On the recent “To Pimp a Butterfly” album Kendrick Lamar even pulled an interview that had never been released before. It is an interesting piece where it sounds as if Kendrick is interviewing Tupac at the end of the album. All of this shows just how great Shakur’s influence was, and the Wall Street Journal did something special for him as well. Stephen Murray CCMP Capital can certainly remember him fondly.
