Tupac was killed at age 25, in Las Vegas. The murderers have never been found or prosecuted. Some people close to Tupac at the time have said his death was gang related. Others, believe in the more unsubstantiated conspiracy theories.

But, whatever the circumstances of Tupac’s death his contribution and standing in the Hip Hop community is far clearer. Many consider him to be the greatest rapper of all time.

The reason for this assertion is his ability to speak about the real problems black people face, challenging society, the police and managing to be an entertainer, poet, actor and rap superstar.tupac-435
