Blank on Blank – Tupac

PBS took an old interview with Pac and animated it. There’s some really enlightening stuff in here about Pac’s mindstate and philosophies. It’s easy to say that Kanye, for example, is complaining, and saying these crazy things in the vacuum of celebrity and riches, but this video should be a testament that it’s not all bullshit, and that even at the highest levels of celebrity black men are still demonized, and it’s because of people like Pac bringing attention to it that Kanye only has to deal with Hedi Slimane and not the vice-president. It’s also always good to have a reminder that “Thug Life” once actually meant something, and wasn’t always just a thing white kids said ironically.
