"The Life And Times Of Prophecy"
And They Say It’s The White Man I Should Fear
But It’s My Own Kind Doin’ All The Killin’ Here
After being shot in Las Vegas on September 7th 1996, Tupac Shakur’s life hung in the balance for 6 days, until he succumbed to his injuries. What should have been a celebratory evening after Mike Tyson’s victory over Bruce Seldon, turned out to be a day of great mourning. He was shot by an unknown driver off the corner of Flamingo and Koval in Las Vegas, and taken to nearby University Medical Center, where he died of respiratory failure and cardiac arrest.
Our world lost far more than a Hip-Hop Artist, they lost a Revolutionary. A product of the Black Panther movement in Oakland, California, Tupac was raised with an understanding and awareness of the injustices in America that few people will ever understand. His wisdom and insight in the fallen world we live in have outlived his physical presence, and continued to spread far beyond the reaches of bordered nations.
In a world where few can understand what is currently happening, or what direction we are heading, Tupac was the One man, who chose to use his intellect, his creativity, and his ability to speak truth into the world, to attempt to change the world we were living in. Had he still been alive today, our world would be a very different place.
Thank you Pac for all you have done for our world, and all you have left behind for Generations to come. Your Life, Legacy, and your Message will never be forgotten.
In honor of his passing, here is the video for “Changes”, which was released only a few short weeks after he left this Earth… Only to prove we lost one of the greatest men, purposed of God, to have ever roamed this world.
