A hugely successful rap artist and actor, Tupac was known for his highly political and socially conscious lyrics. To date, he has sold more than 75 million records internationally. Tragically he was murdered in Las Vegas in 1996 at the age of 25 in a crime that is still not solved today.
Early Life Story/History
Tupac Amaru Shakur was officially born Lesane Parish Crooks on June 16, 1971 in East Harlem, Manhattan, New York City, New York. 2pac was named after Tupac Amaru, an 18th-century South American revolutionary who was executed after leading an indigenous uprising against Spanish rule.
SO he began his music career as a roadie, backup dancer, and MC for Digital Underground, an alternative hip hop group. He eventually went on as a solo artist.Also known by his stage name 2pac and briefly Makaveli, the themes of his songs are highly political and socially conscious.
One reason is that his parents and some of his family are a member of the Black Panther Party, whose ideals were reflected in his songs. As an actor, he made his first solo film with Juice in 1992. He also co-starred with Janet Jackson in Poetic Justice in 1993.

Despite selling $60 million worth of albums in 1996 alone, Tupac’s finances were a mess at the time of his death. Within weeks of his death, a forensic lawyer would later discover that Tupac had very little to show for his enormous success. He owned no real estate, had no retirement accounts, no stocks.
He did not own the Woodland Hills mansion he lived in at the end of his life. His primary assets were a five-figure life insurance policy which went to his half-sister, two cars and a single checking account that contained $105,000. Court fees and taxes consumed all of those assets in short order. The only asset of value that Afeni Shakur received from her son’s estate soon after his death was a Mercedes Benz SL 500.
