Tupac Amaru Shakur (b. 1971 -d. 1996) was a famous rapper, poet, songwriter, activist, screenwriter, record producer, and actor. He was born in New York City on June 16, 1971, and moved to Baltimore, Maryland in the early 1980s, where he attended the Baltimore School for the Arts. There he studied theatre, ballet, and music and became good friends with actress, Jada Pinkett Smith. As a youth, Shakur was a quiet, avid reader who kept a diary and wrote poetry. One of his first roles as an actor was as Travis in the play A Raisin in the Son, at the age of 12.

Shakur's upbringing was greatly influenced by several political activists and Black Panther Party members. His mother, Afeni Shakur-Davis, was a high-ranking member of the Black Panther Party and one of the defendants in the Panther 21 case where she served as her own defense attorney. Mutulu Shakur, Tupac’s mentor and stepfather who helped raised him, was also a member of the Black Panther Party. His godfather Geronimo Pratt, another Black Panther Party member, was released from prison in 1997, after serving twenty-seven years for allegedly murdering a school teacher. Evidence was found that suggested he was not involved in the murder.

In 1988, Shakur, his mother and his sister, Sekyiwa Shakur, relocated to Marin City, California. Three years later, he was introduced to an up and coming rap group, Digital Underground. He became one of Digital Underground’s dancers and went on to perform with them on their hit song, “Same Song”. Subsequently, Shakur released his first album 2Pacalypse Now, which was the beginning of a controversial and successful career.

Shakur's fame and legacy have endured with his fans throughout the world due to his controversial, and often paradoxical music lyrics about women, politics, religion, sex, race, drugs, crime, gang activity, and ghetto life, as well as his feud with former friend and rapper, Christopher Wallace, a.k.a, the “Notorious B.I.G.” Shakur's family established the Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation (TASF), headquarterd in Stone Mountain, Georgia at the Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation to honor and document the career and life of Tupac Shakur (www.tasf.org).

These items are identified intellectually under each member's name as well as a note identifying the location of that particular work. In addition, each member of Dramacydal and The Outlawz is identified by both his given name and stage name.
