I want to recommend people read Tupac Shakur’s poetry book.

The Rose That Grew From Concrete is a great book of poetry by the late Tupac Shakur. I love his poems. I was also a Tupac fan. I got interested in Tupac’s music when I was in middle school. I remember him having nice clothes, expensive jewelry and being one of the best black male actors. Tupac went to a performing arts high school so when I would watch A Different World and once Tupac was on an episode of that show. He was cool. I liked him. I liked his unique name too. I know it’s supposed to be an Incan or a Mayan name. I always thought it was Muslim like mine but that was not true. Tupac Shakur is a guy that died at age 25 a life cut way too short because of gun violence. People seemed to like him though but he was kind of not friendly with fans. I went up to Tupac after a concert in 1994 and he just blew me off.

  1. I don’t remember Tupac on A Different World, but it’s been years since I’ve seen that. I didn’t realize he wrote poems! I’ll have to check out that book. šŸ™‚
