The Rose That Grew From Concrete
His talent was unbounded, a raw force that commanded attention and respect.
His death was tragic – a violent homage to the power of his voice.
His legacy is indomitable – remaining vibrant and alive.
Here now, are Tupac Shakur’s most honest and intimate thoughts conveyed through the pure art of poetry – a mirror into his enigmatic life and its many contradictions.
Written in his own hand at the age of nineteen, they embrace his spirit, his energy and his ultimate message of hope. These poems, which Tupac wrote from the heart, will encourage people to take the first steps necessary to see his literary importance, as well as have us acknowledge the life struggles of black men.
There is no better way to get inside the mind of an artist than to examine his artistic expressions: sharing his sensitivity, insight, revolutionary mind, fears, passions, and sense of humour, Tupac's stature and recognition as a rapper is clear and unequivocal. The Rose That Grew From Concrete now also confirms his place amongst the best writers and poets of his generation.
