Gobi, a fellow artist and friend, reflects on the last year of the hip-hop legend, recording artist, and actor's life in words and images. He takes us from the moment he met Tupac at his house in a water-gun fight to when he stood beside his deathbed in a Los Angeles hospital.
Tupac Shakur was charismatic in life, strikingly beautiful on film, and extraordinarily talented whether the medium was movies, music, or words on paper. With intimate photographs and poignant but light-hearted prose, Gobi has created a fascinating portrait revealing the hip-hop icon's many moods, his moments of introspection, and his humor. We see Shakur clowning around -- dressed up as Rick James. We see him as a lover. We see him with children, and as a mythical Egyptian king.
