ThrowBack Thursday: Tupac Shakur

 

2PAC

“You know what? Last time you said that, I was kinda trippin’, right? But now, you’re right. I am crazy. And you know what else? I don’t give a fuck”. – Bishop

This is a quote from Tupac’s character  Bishop from the 1992 movie “Juice” which starred this legendary Rap/Hip-Hop Artist. It has currently been slated that music video and film director Benny Boom will be the new director of the biopic “TUPAC” that is said to be released in Theaters in 2016. Before we all see the movie next year, here’s some facts on 2Pac before and after his death.

Recording Artist 2Pac was born on June 16, 1971 in New York City. Shakur’s parents were both members of the Black Panther Party. His parents militant style and influential beliefs for civil rights eventually stuck within Pac which also nursed his inspiring music. At the age of 13 and Tupac enrolled in the Baltimore School of the Arts before dropping out at 17. Shakur broke into the music business with rap group Digital Underground as a back-up dancer, rapper and roadie. At the 2:20 mark, 2Pac shares his verse in the “Same Song” tune.  Eventually Shakur released his first solo album in ’91, 2pacalypse Now,which faced social issues in America such as, racism, police brutality, poverty, black on black crime, and teenage pregnancy.

While he was most famous for his rap career, 2Pac was also a gifted actor, poet and a thoughtful outspoken advocate for the poor and the overlooked people in America. 2Pac’s unapologetic lyrics were relevant, important, and reflective of the hard lives led by many. His music earned attention and respect through a poetic style that embraced street vocabulary while being innovative. Tupac leaves a legacy of honest passion in his songs despite his run in’s with the law, East-Coast West- coast beef with another famed Rapper Notorious B.I.G. and his untimely death on September 13, 1996. He is respected by many and has become an inspiration for artists and a standard in rap music history.

Omar Linx Pumps Out New Tracks and Collabs

Hip Hop mic handler Omar Linx hooked up with Hunter Siegel and Pro Logic for production on his lastest release. Back To You, released via Buygore, has an intense yet ambient feel to it. Omar Linx always hits the mic with such passion and energy combined with melody and synths brings you a song you can really dig into.

Linx can Keep It Mellow too on the other hand with a free one released late last month by Marshmello. True to its name it stay real vibrant with a bassline synth and piano dancing with some vocals that bring the track down to earth. Gotta give it to Linx for not being a one styled one genre artists. Always pushing the boundaries as he grow.

MachoBeatz – The Mid [New Music]

Earlier this month Machobeats released The Mid onto his soundcloud. A real heavy and gritty trap instrumental. Get some good speakers and feel this bass in your chest it is ridiculous. Machobeatz is a genius with trap and hip hop music production and is also open to selling his beats to aspiring individual artists or even collaborating over at Ever Evolved Studio.

Wednesday, November 25th Machobeats had the opportunity to open for Curren$y the Spitta. On the beat pads, Macho controlled the sound and while fellow Ever Evolved studio members Rhymster, Mike Booth and AR of Triangle Offense hit the mic and controlled the energy. Macho entered and without uttering a word let his music speak, hittin the crowd with heavy bass and beat work. Absolute best crowd control of the night. Aside from the $pitta Curren$y of course, it was a great night for local artists too.
