THROWBACK VID OF THE DAY [BIRTHDAY EDITION]: Tupac Spits Verses In The Classroom
Rapper and poet Tupac Shakur would have turned 40 today had his life not been taken early. And instead of the usual birthday tribute posts we and others typically do, we came across this rare video of Pac sitting down with school kids at Marcus Garvey School in Los Angeles, inside a classroom, spitting his verses to “Keep Ya Head Up.”
Check it inside….
The words to this track have always been powerful. It says a lot about a person who goes TO the very people feeling and buying the words one has to say. As it affects those people most, and they gain the most from the experience and the words.
Erykah Badu and others are hosting a concert in Tupac’s honor today at Symphony Hall-Woodruff Arts Center in Atlanta. Proceeds from the Tupac 40th Birthday Concert, hosted by actor and comedian Mike Epps, will benefit the Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation for the Arts, an organization that helps develop artistic creativity in young students.
Happy Birthday Tupac.
