Lest his legacy outshine his lifetime accomplishments, this documentary tells the whole story of one of rap's most contentious figures. After getting his start as a member of the incomparable Digital Underground, Tupac made waves with his debut, 2PACALYPSE NOW, augmented by his highly praised appearance in the film JUICE. His prodigious talent and prolific career were undercut, however, by his troubles with the law, and he spent as much time behind bars as he did behind the microphone. Tupac's outlaw status and his much-publicized beef with the Notorious B.I.G. only made him more popular with his fans, however, making his death--especially as his shooter was never caught--a tragedy of monumental proportions. Comprised of previously unseen footage and interviews with those close to the star--including friends, colleagues, journalists, producers and musicians--this release attempts to present the truth about this controversial artist.
