    Tupac Facts:

    Tupac shielded Suge Knight from the bullets that were fired on the night of September 7th, 1996 by trying to jump into the back of the car.

    Tupac was married to Keisha Morris but the marriage was nullified. In the unreleased song "Ghetto Star" with Bad Azz he says "an addict for a wife, livin the life, of a ghetto star". She has a Tupac tattoo on her arm.

    As a young man, Tupac also studied ballet and dance.

    Tupac was banned from playing in many states because his concerts were wild. His song Initiated on the Daz CD says "My lyrics so lethal turn coliseums to murder scenes." He was sued by a woman who was shot and paralyzed at a concert he held in 1993. She said he got the crowd to rowdy.

    The video for "I Wonder If Heaven Got A Ghetto" was filmed in New Mexico.

    E.D.I. Amin and Kastro of The Outlawz say that the "Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory" album was recorded in 7 days. That why it was called that way. They also said that Tupac didn't have a religion but that he believed in God. Kastro said that one of the things Tupac said to him was, "The only thing that comes to a sleeping man is dreams."

    "Thug Luv" was just a song that Bizzy, Silk-E-Fine and Tupac were supposed to do but things happened and all of Bone Thugs -n- Harmony came in. Bizzy Bone that Pac came into the studio, wrote his verse in about 10 minutes and then left because he had to go model for Versace. Then he came back and sang with them all laid back.

    "Me And My Girlfriend" is about his gun, not his girlfriend.

    Tupac said he wanted to move to Arizona and name a daughter Star or a son Michelangelo.

    Tupac was planned to act in the movies Cool Runnings, Higher Learning, Menace II Society and How To Be A Player.

    When Tupac was 12 years old, his mother enrolled him in Harlems 127thSt Ensemble. He played Travis in "A Raisin in The Sun" in his first acting role.

    While doing a show in Marin County Tupac got into an altercation which was handled really bad by the Marin County Sheriffs department, gun shots were fired and a shot from someone's gun ricocheted and killed a little kid.

    Stretch was Tupac's friend and was there when Pac got shot the first time. He was later killed exactly 1 year to the date of that shooting. Pac says "and to that n*gga that was down for me, rest his head, switched sides guess his new friends wanted him dead."

    He died on Friday the 13th

    Tupac studied drama at Baltimore's School For The Arts, where he rapped under the name MC New York.

    As a young man, Tupac also studied ballet and dance

    He did jail time before he was even born.

    he had alopecia that's why he shaved his head bald.

    Tupac was a big fan of Jim Carrey

    When he first moved to California, Tupac was homeless for 2 years.

    Tupac wanted to name his first child Star if it was a daughter Michaelangelo if it was a boy.

    On the song Me and My Girlfriend from Makaveli: 7Day Theory the song is actual about 2pac and his gun not actually him and his girlfriend. This song shows how lyrically talented 2pac was to make a song that would seem as if it was about him and his girlfriend but refers to his gun, its really interesting just to listen to it. For Example: I love finger ****** you, all of a sudden I'm hearing thunder when you bust a nut, ****** be duckin. Referring pullin the trigger of his gun :)

    There are many methods to make our hair grow faster, shine , glitter in natural ways without using chemicals. Learn here https://tr.im/oJ4rW

    Men, and sometimes women, notice that their hair is thinning prematurely for several different reasons. Age, menopause, pregnancy, genetics, illness, and other factors all play a role in hair loss.

    Sure, you can use drugs or you can go in for a hair transplant or fusion, but sometimes the easiest, most inexpensive solution, is to try to stop hair loss naturally.

    his real name possibly was not tupac amaru shakur it could possibly have been parish lesane crooks or lesane parish crooks.

    he was a roadie and backup dancer(believe it or not) for digital underground before he became a solo rapper.

    there are so many conspiracys involving his death(even 1 that he still lives) its unbelievable e.g. illuminati is 1 due to the fact of his album the don killuminati: the 7 day theory

    the amount of posthumous work he has is astounding
