Rasar Amani, the leader of the well-known Las Vegas funk/hip-hop/jazz fusion band The Lique, has died. The group posted on Thursday on their Facebook and Instagram pages to say that the rapper had died.
He is known for his name
Tupac Shakur is a well-known rap superstar better known by his stage names, 2Pac, and Makaveli. His lyrics, personality, and outlook on life are admired inside and outside the music industry. His music still affects and speaks to people worldwide because of how real his words and rapping style was. He connected with a whole generation through these things.
Tupac was killed when he had so much more to give the world, like many others who died too soon. He was hurt by the gangster rap scene and became a bad role model. Tupac was known as one of the most influential rappers of the 1990s.
He started his career with Digital Underground as a backup rapper and dancer. In 1991, he made his first album, “Self-Titled,” and put it out. With his well-received role in Ernest Dickerson’s 1992 movie “Juice,” he quickly became the talk of the town and made his way into Hollywood. Within a year, Tupac became famous, but he also started to get in trouble with the law. Still, his music career grew, and in 1994, he was just as controversial as Snoop Dogg because he was in jail.
His album was his best
How he broke the law helped him make his “Me Against the World” album in 1995. It was at the top of the charts at its best, but that made him open to exploitation charges. But Tupac also had a sensitive side, which can be seen in songs like “Dear Mama” and the lyrics to those songs. In exchange for a three-record deal, Death Row Records boss Suge Knight let Tupac out of jail after nine months. Early in 1996, Tupac released the double album “All Eyez on Me,” which, along with its hit song “California Love,” made him an unbeatable superstar.
Tupac’s music got too much like the gangster-rapper life he was trying to portray, which put his life in danger. During the height of his success, he had problems with Death Row Records and fellow rapper Notorious B.I.G. As the tension between East Coast and West Coast hip-hop grew, Tupac was shot several times in a drive-by shooting at the M.G.M. Grand in Las Vegas on September 7, 1996. A few days after that, on September 13, he died in a hospital.
Tupac’s death shocked the whole world, and thousands of mourners gathered outside the hospital where he died. He also left behind a legacy that can’t be beaten. Even more so, because there were no leads in the investigation, the whole entertainment industry was shaken by the news. Even though people still thought that Tupac’s death would end the East Coast vs West Coast rivalry, Notorious B.I.G. was also killed similarly six months after Tupac. After Tupac died many albums were made after his death.
