This book was very very good! I learned more facts and secrets about my favorite artist like things I knew about 2pac and things I didn't know about him. For example, his favorite actor is Jim Carrey, he was married to a Keisha Morris, and he had a son named Dontre Wilbon that no one knows about.

read in high school to do a research project for english class on tupac. very detailed. lots of interviews. tupac was just such an honest person. its refreshing to read anything he said because you know its not filtered and its not what his publicist told him to say. love him*
