Career ended in 25 years
The famous rapper was only 25 years old at the time of his murder. There was an uproar after his murder, but now 60-year-old Duane has been accused of murder. The grand jury has given this decision after a long hearing.
Use of deadly weapon
Prosecutors say David has been found guilty of murdering famous rapper Tupac Shakur using a deadly weapon. Davis was arrested Friday at his home while he was out walking.
Became famous very soon
Let us tell you that Shakur was a famous rapper. Hiphop artist Shakur, who gave hit songs like California Love, was also nominated six times for the Grammy Award. Shakur had a short-lived but brilliant career. He was one of the fast rising rappers. In a very short time he went from backup dancer to gangsta rapper and one of the most influential figures in hip-hop. His 75 million records were sold. Rapper Shakur may have been born in New York, but he moved to California with his family in his childhood. He quickly became famous on the West Coast.
Mutual jealousy is the cause of death!
It is said that in September 1996, rapper Tupac was in his car with his entourage when he was attacked. His death came just six months after his rival, East Coast rapper Christopher The Notorious Big Wallace, was also shot and killed. Many people believe that he was murdered due to mutual jealousy in the music world. However, some music historians say this was exaggerated due to commercial rifts.
Songs were used for these issues
Shakur's mother Afeni was very active in the Black Panther movement. He was named after Tupac Amaru, a revolutionary Inca chief. Shakur used his songs to highlight issues facing black Americans, from police brutality to mass incarceration.
