“Tupac Remembered: Bearing Witness to a Life and Legacy” will be hitting stores in February of 2008. The book on the hip hop and rap icon was compiled by Gloria Cox, Staci Robinson and Molly Monjauze. This is the fourth book that will be released under the Amaru Company, and spearheaded by hip hop icon Tupac Shakur’s (2Pac) mother Afeni Shakur.
‘Tupac Remembered: Bearing Witness to a Life and Legacy’ features the most candid interviews from those who have the most cherished memories of the hip hop icon "Pac", in their own words.
Personal snapshots and remembrances shed light on the many personas of Tupac (2Pac), who even a decade after his death remains one of the hip hop and rap industry's most complicated and enduring artists.
Contributors to this project include many hip hop and rap notables such as Big Syke, Shock G, Russell Simmons, Sekyiwa, Mutulu Shakur, Snoop Dogg, The Outlawz, Kevin Powell, Common, E40, Talib Kweli, Baron Davis, Eminem, Treach, along with Jada Pinkett-Smith, Maya Angelou, Nikki Giovanni, Sonia Sanchez and many others.
A portion of the profits will go to The Tupac Amauru Shakur Foundation for the Arts.
