1996: Tupac Shakur was shot in Las Vegas (he died six days later)
I'm not a huge fan of rap - especially now that it is used in EVERY SINGLE SONG on the radio (which I also find not very worthy) but "back in the day" there was some really true talent.
Tupac's personal life was very shady at best but his voice - don't know what it is but he had the most incredible sound - must have hit some chakra for me?
He had this bounce to his rhythm and the flow was insane. Controversial to say the least but his music lives on and on. He would flash that smile and those big brown eyes and you'd just appreciate his "California Love" but my favorite is "How do You Want it?"
