It’s Tupac’s birthday and we’re here to show a little love with some interesting facts about the late rapper and actor.

A true gemini, Pac was very vocal about the Black community’s fight for equality, so it’s no debate, he would have had a lot to say if he were alive today, for the coronavirus pandemic and George Floyd protests that have inspired resistance and activism across the world. He was also known for being very socially conscious in his music.

He rapped, in part, on his song “White Manz World,” for example…

“Eatin’ Jack-Mack, starin’ at walls of silence
Inside this cage where they captured all my rage and violence
In time I learned a few lessons, never fall for riches
Apologizes to my true sisters, far from b*tches
Help me raise my Black nation, reparations are due, it’s true
Caught up in this world I took advantage of you
So tell the babies how I love them, precious boys and girls
Born black in this white man’s world”

“You know how hard it is being a woman? A Black woman, at that, in this white man’s world?” he asked early on.
