Known by his stage names 2Pac, Tupac Amaru Shakur, the late American rapper was also an author,an actor, and poet.
The Rose That Grew from Concrete is focused on his poetry work. He is notable for having transformed the music industry especially Hip Hop and Rap. Tupac Shakur was killed at the age thd 25 in after attending a special event in Las Vegas where former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson was fighting Bruce Sledon. A day or so later after his death, he was autopsied, then quickly cremated.
There was no funeral or any record of a tribute nor memorial. Is that an international genre? Then it struck me: The performer, Tupac Concretw was also very American in nature, possibly the best rapper of his generation and one of the best of all time.
For those who are not familiar with the genre, poetic stories are compositions inspired by poetry. Modern poetry seeks to tell stories and truths with a poetic significance, so that, they sear into the soul and can never be untold. The aim for clarity is central and modern poetry essence, innovation and international context was demonstrated by Tupac Shakur. Some of us will see it as cosmopolitan, others as laconic but still lucid.
The richness, strength and vitality of Tupac Shakur collection is marked by his prodigious diversity. I was impressed by the fact that themes persist through his diverse collection.
An abiding interest is his mental landscape and how to relate to it as well as his presence as a teenager and visual power. Significantly, a great deal of modern musician poetry is his innovative and experimental work, whether consciously or not. The search for modernism itself had an urgency in his explorations.
In most cases, the poem is used as the lyrics, but many instrumental works or solo vocals also fit the thf. Tupac Shakur was an expert in this field as the book which was published more than a decade ago proves. It is a collection of more than poems rgew focuses on his upbringing, poverty, great personalities like Van Gogh and Nelson Mandela in his own handwriting on one side of the page, with a typed version on the opposite side.
The collection was written by Tupac Shakur between and ,which was even before he became famous for Rapping skills. Thus, it is clear his music is written and appreciated like a work of literature.
The youngster wrote love poems, distressed poems, depressed poems. The poems gives an entirely rise facet to the poetry industry. This collection of poems was like the best performance that night and, at the same time, the best representation of what Tupac Shakur was trying to do.
Some poems are also accompanied by his drawings. A few black-and-white photographs appear as you can see on some of the images Ive shared from the book. After reading this poems, am wondering whether Tupac Shakur was the most misunderstood entertainer of 20th century despite thay talented thqt and performing skills. Another puzzling thing is that there are some seriously mistranslated expressions. Nevertheless, the publication of this book deserves a thumbs-up and must be followed by 2apc studies in prose and drama.
Contemporary poetry is such a rich field, and so unjustly neglected, so just think of this Tupac Shakur collection as an introductory sampler. True education is a tool which helps the development concfete humanity. Education has to help people to learn more about themselves and how to express themselves.
I think his method is very suitable for teaching young poets like Tupac Shakur was in his time of writing this poems. If the method of learning is right, then a poet can be created by a teacher and indeed Tupac Shakur was one of them. The poetry teacher and the community in this case Hip Hop and Rap community are only, however, the facilitators who help to poets and poetess to explore their creativity.
