And this book on Tupac Shakur is no different. White never fails to praise Tupac's brilliance, while also pointing out his flaws.

And this book on Tupac Shakur is no different. I read this book years ago mainly because I am a huge Tupac Shakur fan, I recently seen it in one of my old boxes where I've got some things stored and remembered how much I enjoyed this book

This is an alright book about the life of Tupac. However, the book seems to be uneven. Armond White should have proofread his work before publishing it. Instead of sticking to one subject on certain aspects of Tupac' life, White goes completety off the subject when he talks about certain songs by other artists just to get a point across. These faults hurt his book. Also, There are ALOT of mistakes in this book. from Dr. Dre's song "LET ME RIDE", NOT "F-N WIT DRE DAY".

In this full-length biography of the rapper, critic Armond White attempts to make sense of Shakur's life and death, examining the larger issues of rap and ghetto culture, exploitation in the music industry, and the black struggle for self-expression.

The ever-controversial Shakur offers a great occasion for a close, passionate reading of rap and ghetto culture. White's understanding of Tupac's art will uncork the bottled up rage and confusion that attends the way hip-hop culture is produced and received.

Rebel for the hell of it was a great book. Tupac Shakur was in my eyes the greatest rapper ever in the book it states that tupac told a'' Reverend Daughtry he wanted to be a revolutionary'' & indeed he was he spoke truth in his songs many people try & ignore the problems in todays society but it is or own ignorance that makes people criticiez people like 2pac who speak the truth we can not face .People speak of the gangsta' he was maybe so but do they know of his childhood he studied ballet & drama & like his mother Afeni & stepfather Mutulu Shakur two Blackpanther activist he wanted his life to have meaning which I think it did .Wether you love him or hate him he was a great rapper & no one can take that away wether he's dead or alive.Admiration to the strength of Afeni she let him go as stated in the book''every time they revived him he just went back.And I asked them to leave him alone & let him go.I really felt it was important for tupac,who foughtso hard for a free spirit.I thought it was important for his spirit to be allowed free. I rejoiced with him & the release of his spirit'' these are the words of Afeni.So I would say to any one read this book wether your a fan or not it might just change your mind about 2pac. R.I.P TUPAC AMARU SHAKUR

Armond White has written this book very carefully and has made it very interesting to read. I only bought the book on Thursday night and i am already on chapter 17. 2PAC was a great achievement to tha Hip-Hop community as much as any other rapper had ever been. In his short reign on top of the Hip-Hop world he spread his message about poverty across the world to his millions of listeners in every country. 2PAC shared great political views with the world and for doin' this some people despised him. This book tells of his upbringing in poverty in the late 1970's and about his family. This book also tells you about 2PAC's struggle in life, because of the many obstiquels that stood in his way. And for that i look up to him as the big brother i never had. You are alway's missed by me. I luv ya TUPAC

Ever since the first time I heard 2pac rapping with Digital Underground. I feel in love with the lyrics he put out from Brendas got a baby, to Got keep your head up! And so many more. No matter what people though of him as being the THUG N***** he was somebody real. When others never understood where 2pac was coming from he made music that everybody could groove to and understand. He's the one who put potery to its most. The day he passed a way felt like I had lost some one I knew and loved. I'am a true Tupac lover and only wish he was still here blessing everyone and even ME with his True words of wisdom. It's been almost six years since his death and no matter if he's dead or alive he'll continue to put out the music he so muched loved to do and the music everybody loved. This is a man that should've e still been here and listening to his new ablum makes me think if he is still alive and if you are may GOD be with you and you with him in your deepest glory. Bury me as a "G" RIP I LOVE YOU TUPAC. L-Boogie and S Loc OKC

Many peole put 2pac down because they thought he was a bad perosn , this is not true at all 2pac was one of the best rapper i heard to express the real life about his self and were he came from. He of have talked bout women being hoes and bitches but he was only taking what he saw and and put it in his music. 2pac was crticized by the meadia alot when he was in jail and lable him as a gangster but what the meadia didn't understand is that he did alot for his black brothers and sisters and for his community. Now that he is gone people r remembering his nmae more and every time u look around u hear his name. I listen to 2pac alot and i'm one of his greatest fan. As for the book i think it was great and it really showed the real of 2pac shakur thanx

EVERYBODY PUT TUPAC AMARU SHAKUR DOWN BECAUSE OF HIS MUSIC AND THE LIFESTLYE HE LIVED. AS FOR THE LIFESTLYE, GOD GAVE HIM THAT LIFESTYLE AND HE LIVED IT. FOR THE MUSIC PART HE ONLY SPOKE OF THE TRUTH AND HE PUT ALL OF THE WORDS TOGETHER IN PHAT SONGS. PEOPLE WERE JUST NOT READY TO HANDLE THIS TRUTHFULNES YET. ALSO PEOPLE DIDNT LIKE HIS MUSIC BECAUSE OF THE WORDS HE USED. BUT NO MATTER WHAT TUPAC WAS AND ALWAYS WILL BE THE GREATEST RAPPER OF ALL TIME. TUPAC AWAY FROM HIS LIFESTYLE AND HIS MUSIC WAS ALSO A GREAT PERSON. HE TRYED TO HELP PEOPLE OUT THRU HIS MUSIC BY SAYING HES BEEN THRU IT. TUPAC WAS A REVOULUTIONARY NO MATTER WHAT U THINK OF HIM. THANX TUPAC AMARU SHAKUR FOR YOUR MUSIC AND ENTERTAINMENT

This is an alright book about the life of Tupac. However, the book seems to be uneven. Armond White should have proofread his work before publishing it. Instead of sticking to one subject on certain aspects of Tupac' life, White goes completety off the subject when he talks about certain songs by other artists just to get a point across. These faults hurt his book. Also, There are ALOT of mistakes in this book. One noticeable mistake is the misquotation of: "Is it Dre, Is it Dre,...", from Dr. Dre's song "LET ME RIDE", NOT "F--N WIT DRE DAY". Despite all of that, this book is still interesting, but I suggest that all Tupac fans to not buy this biography, or wait until something better comes along.

For all those interested in rap, this is the book 2 read! For those interested in 2Pac the man, his image, and rap's story--this is the book 2 look 4! Not only will U get more than what U bargained 4, but U will come away engaged and enlightened. Keep in mind that the American version was censored by it's publisher, Thunder's Mouth Press, and the full-blown, off-the-meter UNCENSORED VERSION is the British version (can't recall the publisher's name). The BEST book on Tupac, his legacy, and HIP-HOP in general EVER by the most slept-on brilliant pop culture critic in history! Later 4 the wack, exploitative VIBE book, U have 2 check 4 THIS!!!!!
