    Description

    A New Yorker writer’s intimate, revealing account of Tupac Shakur’s life and legacy, timed to the 50th anniversary of his birth and 25th anniversary of his death.

    In the summer of 2020, Tupac Shakur’s single “Changes” became an anthem for the worldwide protests against the murder of George Floyd. The song became so popular, in fact, it was vaulted back onto the iTunes charts more than 20 years after its release - making it clear that Tupac’s music and the way it addresses systemic racism, police brutality, mass incarceration, income inequality, and a failing education system is just as important now as it was back then.

    In Changes, published to coincide with the 50th anniversary of Tupac’s birth and 25th anniversary of his death, Sheldon Pearce offers one of the most thoughtful and comprehensive accounts yet of the artist’s life and legacy. Pearce, an editor and writer at The New Yorker, interviews dozens who knew Tupac throughout various phases of his life. While there are plenty of bold-faced names, the book focuses on the individuals who are lesser known and offer fresh stories and rare insight. Among these are the actor who costarred with him in a Harlem production of A Raisin in the Sun when he was 12 years old, the high school drama teacher who recognized and nurtured his talent, the music industry veteran who helped him develop a nonprofit devoted to helping young artists, the Death Row Records executive who has never before spoken on the record, and dozens of others. Meticulously woven together by Pearce, their voices combine to portray Tupac in all his complexity and contradiction.

    This remarkable book illustrates not only how he changed during his brief 25 years on this planet, but how he forever changed the world.

    Good listen

    Huge Pac fan, I’ll listen to anything that involves him. Glad to hear about the court case in the book. Going to find a copy of this to have on the shelf.

    Legend

    so Tupac shot himself twice in the groin then? I don't know why they want to push that. Also the book doesn't mention the other bullets he took, so, did that not happen then? Anyhow the rest of the book is so, so good, and that comes from a fan and not what they told me.

    Like listening to a documentary

    The audiobook feels like you're listening to a documentary. There are different voices for the cast of people close to Pac that are interviewed, which works really well for the audiobook as it helps you to keep track of who's talking. The storyline does a good job of moving through Tupac's life and the background to the albums he was releasing. The pacing is excellent and written in an engaging way.

    This is a bit of a hagiography and doesn't provide much critique of Tupac or his music. There is some critique, but it always seems to be in passing and followed up by saying he was just a product of his environment - or that he was misunderstood.

    Overall, this book paints an intriguing picture of Tupac and helps you understand his genius and why he was such an influential figure in hip-hop and pop culture. It leaves you amazed by who the man was and devastated that we lost him at such a young age.

    Strange format, valuable insights

    While i did not like the format of mash up if interviews (probably the first book in years that just did not sound right in audio format) the insights to 2Pacs life were useful and interesting.
    It allowed me to see a more in depth picture of his personality and music.
