Livre 2PAC - Tupac

Regular price 24,00€

Tupac Shakur is one of the most famous American rappers whose success largely contributed to the global commercial explosion of rap in the 1990s. Twenty years after his death at the age of twenty-five, on September 13, 1996, following a shooting six days earlier, he continues to inspire many rappers and arouse all fantasies with a work, musical and cinematographic, as abundant and political as it is viscerally attached to the street. Behind the scandals that marked his career and the multiple rumors that hover over his death, this book aims to understand the work of 2Pac, his conception, his blind spots, his meticulous writing, his obsessions, his perspectives or the similarities that she maintains with her personal evolution. From Harlem to Los Angeles, from Marin City to Atlanta and Baltimore, these pages, keen to recontextualize the rapper's work, also tackle head-on the cruelty of gangs in the United States, the war between West-Coast and East-Coast, the activism of the Shakur family, the emergence of gangsta rap in the late 1980s and the adventure of the Death Row Records label.

Twenty years after the assassination of Tupac Shakur, journalist Maxime Delcourt returns to the founding work of one of the greatest American rappers.
