Photos : 15 little known facts about Tupac Shakur

Facts about Tupac Shakur – It has been over 20 years since Tupac Shakur was murdered – if you believe that he is dead, that is – and yet Tupac continues to be a music phenomenon unlike any other person who has since emerged on the scene. One reason is that Tupac is regarded as arguably the greatest rapper in the history of the genre.
The legend of Tupac has grown over time also because of the recordings featuring the rapper that have been released since his untimely death. Those releases have helped add fuel to the fire that has been rumors that Tupac may have faked his death and may be alive today.

Unless Tupac outs himself to the world and then proves that he is who he says he is and that he is still around, odds are that there are always going to be groups of fans who don’t believe that the rapper staged what was, per the official story, a gruesome demise. Other theorists may claim that we will never know for sure what happened to Tupac in 1996. That could be a matter of opinion. What is not up for debate is that there are plenty of interesting facts about Tupac that casual fans of the artist may have either forgotten or never knew over the years.

The man who would become known to the world as Tupac Shakur was given the name Lesane Parish Crooks at birth. His mother, per Norberto Briceno of BuzzFeed, renamed him Tupac Amaru Shakur after a Peruvian revolutionary who was executed after after leading an uprising against Spanish oppressors. The irony of Tupac being “assassinated” sticks out, even if the deaths of the two men were rather different.

Tupac had watched a Mike Tyson fight when he entered a vehicle in Las Vegas. It was in that vehicle where Tupac would be gunned down and murdered, one of the most tragic events in the history of modern music.
