Description:
This male figure dressed in a vibrant orange hat and shirt represents the late Tupac Shakur. He was a highly successful rap artist, actor, and social activist during the 1990s that is often revered as the greatest rapper of all times. In 1996, he was tragically murdered at the age of 25. As a part of Dr. Charles Smith's cluster series focusing on the Hip-Hop generation, this work illuminates the lasting legacy of an "artist that died too young via violence."
