Medium level coarse language
|Director:||Jay Lee Thomas|
Legendary rapper Tupac Shakur led a controversial life. From his mercurial rise to hip-hop fame to his tragic death, Tupac burned the candle at both ends and was an inspiration to millions around the world.
Different from any other Tupac documentary, 2PAC 4 Ever avoids the violence and controversy surrounding his death and instead focuses on the legacy of his music and his contribution to culture.
Director Jay Lee Thomas and narrator, and fellow rapper KRS-One, poignantly show us how Tupac Shakur ?died in the arms of a culture.?
Heartfelt interviews from his peers (Lisa ?Lefteye? Lopez, Too Short, Mike Tyson), behind the scenes footage, and concert clips show the side of Tupac that was far beyond the ?thug? of the evening newscasts ? the man who has become a cultural icon. An icon created by destiny and nurtured through the spirit of his life, not the tragic fate of his death.
Tupac stays alive through his music and he continues to inspire not only his fellow artists, but a culture beyond hip-hop and one belonging to the world.
