Tupac, one of the most prolific rappers of this generation, was born on this date. He released four albums between 1991 and 1996, selling over 75 million albums worldwide.
He was also a central figure in the West Coast/East Coast rap battle. His high profile in the east coast rap culture resulted in his death on a busy night, right after a Mike Tyson fight, in Las Vegas. Til this day, no one has been charged with his murder. RIP Tupac.
