I got shot.

I always felt like I'd be shot.

Somebody was trying

to do me some harm

because a lot of people don't like me.

But I didn't think it was gonna happen

at that particular moment.

I'm surprised, but I'm happy.

I believe that, you know,

this is all in God's hands.

And I'm very appreciative to God

for everything I've gotten to do.

But also, about death, we look at

death from the selfish side, like:

"That guy died. Oh, it's so sad."

Why is it sad?

He's away from all of this

bad stuff that's here on Earth.

I mean, at the worst, he's just

somewhere quiet, no nothing.

At best, he's an angel... or he's

a spirit somewhere.

What is so bad about that?

Throughout my life, I just wanted

to be like an angel for God,

do something

where I could be of some help.

And I can do that.

I mean, I'm an artist.

It's not like I have to tell the truth.

I have to tell a story

and reach you and get

some kind of feeling from you.

And then try to get the moral across.

So this is my story.

A story about ambition,

violence, redemption and love.

In my life, I was different things

for different people.

What's up, nigga?

Don't f*ck around with real Gs

Quick to snatch your ugly ass

- Off the streets

- So f*ck peace

I let them niggas know

It's on for life

So let the West Side ride tonight

Bad Boy murdered on wax and killed

- F*ck with me you'll get your

- Caps peeled

Yeah, my niggas say...

Some people say

I was a thug and a gangsta.

Other people remember me

as a poet and a born leader.

But I'm saying to you

measure a man by his actions fully,

through his whole life,

from the beginning to the end.

Everybody's past

is what made their future.

It's, like, about destiny.

Speak, drums

Tell the real story

My mother was a Black Panther,

and she was really involved

in the movement.

Power! Power!

Power to the people!

Power to the people!

You know, just black people bettering

themselves and things like that.

She had a high position in the Panther

Party, which was unheard of,

because there was sexism,

even in the Panthers.

All of my roots

to the struggle are real deep.

I was named after this Inca chief

from South America

whose name was Tupac Amaru.

And I think the tribal breakdown

means, like, intelligent warrior,

something like that. He's a deep dude.

If I go to South America,

they're gonna love me.

My stepfather at the time,

Mutulu Shakur,

he was also, like,

a well-known revolutionary.

And then my godfather,

Geronimo Pratt,

had a top official rank position

with the Panthers on the West Coast.

You can jail a revolutionary,

but you can't jail a revolution.

I think that my mother,

like Fred Hampton, Mark Clark,

Harriet Tubman, they felt

like they were laying tracks

for a generation to come.

Come in, little brothers, sisters. Y'all

sit down and get something to eat.

There was always

white people around helping out.

But still, you know, there's racism.

So when the Panthers hit,

the government panicked.

And they felt like the Panthers were

detrimental to American society.

Remember, this country had

a man named J. Edgar Hoover,

whose job it was to destroy the

credibility of any black man coming up.

- That's what they did to the Panthers.

- Power to the people.

The government raided every

Panther's house, especially the ones

who they felt like could do the

most damage as an orator.

So they just burst in and put a gun

to my mother's head and said:

"Don't move. You're under arrest."

They treated her

like less than human.

My mother was pregnant

with me while she was in prison.
