Tupac Amaru Shakur Quotes

  • Thug Life to me is dead.

  • If I win and get the money, then the Oakland Police department is going to buy a boys’ home, me a house, my family a house, and a Stop Police Brutality Center.

  • The only time I have problems is when I sleep.
  • Let the Lord judge the criminals.
  • There’s nobody in the business strong enough to scare me.
  • I worked hard all my life as far as this music business. I dreamed of the day when I could go to New York and feel comfortable and they could come out here and be comfortable.
  • I just spent 11 and a half months in a maximum-security jail, got shot five times, and was wrongly convicted of a crime I didn’t commit.
  • I’m a reflection of the community.
  • In my mind I’m a blind man doin’ time.
  • We all gonna die, we bleed from similar veins.
  • I’m 23 years old. I might just be my mother’s child, but in all reality, I’m everybody’s child. Nobody raised me; I was raised in this society.
  • Somebody help me, tell me where to go from here cause even Thugs cry, but do the Lord care?
  • What I learned in jail is that I can’t change. I can’t live a different lifestyle – this is it. This is the life that they gave and this is the life that I made.
  • I would rather have been shot straight-up in cold blood-but to be set up? By people who you trusted? That’s bad.
  • I don’t see myself being special; I just see myself having more responsibilities than the next man. People look to me to do things for them, to have answers.

  • It seems like every time you come up something happens to bring you back down.
  • All I’m trying to do is survive and make good out of the dirty, nasty, unbelievable lifestyle that they gave me.
  • It’s the game of life. Do I win or do I lose? One day they’re gonna shut the game down. I gotta have as much fun and go around the board as many times as I can before it’s my turn to leave.
  • But I know for a fact that had I had a father, I’d have some discipline. I’d have more confidence. Your mother cannot calm you down the way a man can. Your mother can’t reassure you the way a man can. My mother couldn’t show me where my manhood was. You need a man to teach you how to be a man.
  • If you walked by a street and you were walking on the concrete and you saw a rose growing from the concrete, even if it had messed up petals and it was a little to the side you would marvel at just seeing a rose grow through concrete. So why is it that when you see some ghetto kid grow out of the dirtiest circumstance and he can talk and he can sit across the room and make you cry, make you laugh, all you can talk about is my dirty rose, my dirty stems and how I am leaning crooked to the side, you can’t even see that I’ve come up from out of that
  • I swear, if they hadn’t tried to ruin me, I never would have ended up being a rapper. I probably would have been a preacher or something.
  • I’m not saying I’m gonna change the world, but I guarantee that I will spark the brain that will change the world.
  • The reason why I could get into acting was that it takes nothing to get out of who I am and go into somebody else.

  • His favorite singer was Prince.
  • Along with friends, he founded the “Junior Black Panthers” in his youth.
  • Moved out of his mother’s house when he was 17.
  • His 1996 song “Me and My Girlfriend” (from the rapper’s posthumously released “Don Killuminati” album) chronicle Shakur’s relationship with his pistol, which he frequently carried for protection. The “finger fucking” Shakur refers to in the song is actually a euphemism for pulling the trigger. The song was covered in 2003 by Beyoncé Knowles and Jay Z with a slightly altered chorus; it reached the top ten of the American pop charts.
  • Recorded close to 150 songs during the final year of his life, and often completed three songs per day in the same period. Shakur also wrote lyrics in the studio and often performed his verses in one take. He felt that rappers who could not perform their verses properly on the first take weren’t ready to be rappers. R&B music, on the other hand, was worthy of multiple takes for the vocal tracks, he felt.
  • Tupac used the Roland D70 synthesizer for his album “All Eyez On Me” (as seen in an interview with MTV in 1996).
  • His number one single, “California Love” was certified at sales of 2 million copies in 1998.
  • Shakur renamed his publishing company to “Joshua’s Dream” in honor of a young, terminally ill child whose dying wish was to meet him.
  • Shakur was shot in Las Vegas on September 7, 1996, at approximately 11:15 pm, at the corner of Flamingo and Koval streets.
  • His first album, “2Pacalypse Now” was released November 12, 1991, and was certified gold. It contains 13 songs and reached number 13 on the R&B/Hip-Hop albums.
  • “The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory” was recorded and mixed in a mere 7 days in August 1996. It was released November 5, 1996 and debuted at number one on both the pop album and R&B/Hip-Hop album charts, with 663,000 albums sold in its first week. It is certified at 7 million albums sold in the US and 28 million albums worldwide, making it both Tupac’s best-selling album.
  • His career triumphs–a number one album and pop single– both happened on the 13th: Rap’s first double album, “All Eyez on Me” (certified by the RIAA as of December 2006 at 9 million copies sold) hit store shelves on February 13th 1996. His only number one pop single “How Do U Want It?”, reached the apex of the Hot 100 on July 13th, 1996. Sadly, it was on September 13th (a Friday) that Shakur succumbed to injuries sustained in a Las Vegas shooting.
  • He completed the 27 songs “All Eyez On Me”, considered by many to be his magnum opus, in only two weeks. Often cited as rap’s first double album, “All Eyez” sessions began just hours after Shakur was released from jail. Released on February 13th, 1996, the album debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 album chart.
  • Gang member Orlando Anderson often cited as Tupac’s killer was later murdered himself during an altercation at a LA car wash, on May 29th, 1998. It should be noted that Anderson was never charged in the slaying.
  • Shakur considered singer Don McClean (best known as the singer/songwriter of the 1972 hit “American Pie”) and Kate Bush as two influences in his life. Shakur also saw McClean’s hit “Vincent” (a tale of painter Vincent Van Gogh) as one particular inspiration. Besides, Shakur cited African-American poet Maya Angelou and William Shakespeare as being equally important to him.
  • The song “To Live and Die in LA”, was called by Shakur (who recorded the song under the name “Makaveli”, for the “Seven Day Theory” album) “California Love, part 2– without gay-ass Dre.” It is unknown if “gay-ass Dre” is a serious slur against Dr. Dre, who left Shakur’s label Death Row records shortly after producing two tracks for “All Eyez On Me”.
  • Recorded much of his vocals of the “All Eyez On Me” album with a Neumann U87 microphone. Besides, the entire album was recorded on analog tape. This was considered somewhat archaic by 1995 recording standards, as much of the recording industry had transitioned to digital recording. (However, it should be noted that Dr. Dre, who produced two songs for the album still uses analog tape to record his music, as of late 2006).
  • Used an interpolation of the 1984 El DeBarge song “A Dream” for his hit “I Ain’t Mad At Ya”. Tupac’s version, however, is at a faster tempo than the original.
  • Cited Prince as an inspiration and sampled his music on the “All Eyez On Me” album. Shakur mentioned in an MTV interview that “he [Prince] loves women like I love women.”.
  • Read the article in “Entertainment Weekly” about his “Me Against The World” album’s debut at number one, while incarcerated. The album’s title song also appeared in Bad Boys (1995), which opened in March– while Shakur was behind bars.
  • Was a fan of actor Tim Roth and was delighted to learn he would work with him on Gridlock’d (1997), released after Shakur’s death.
  • His song “Hit ‘Em Up”, which Shakur considered a “classic battle record” is a scathing attack on one-time friend ‘Notorious BIG’, Bad Boy Records, and Sean Combs. Besides, Shakur claimed that he slept with Faith Evans (Notorious BIG’s wife) in the song’s lyrics.
  • The harmonica in “So Many Tears” is a sample from Stevie Wonder’s song “That Girl”, which spent 9 weeks at number one on the R&B charts in 1982.
  • Biological Father Is Billy Garland.
  • First music artist to have a #1 LP while being in jail
