Killing of Tupac Shakur, The (Third Edition)

New 3rd Edition of Acclaimed Tupac Bio, Feat. Never-Before Released Information


Poet, revolutionary, convict, movie star, Tupac Amaru Shakur was also the most popular and influential rapper in the world. 

It's been 20 years since Tupac was gunned down at age 25 while he sat in traffic near the Las Vegas Strip and in this new updated and expanded third edition of his acclaimed bio., Las Vegas crime writer Cathy Scott has been able to finally add the chapter featuring the account of that last fateful night from "Big Frank," the rapper's now-deceased personal bodyguard.

The raw no-holds-barred narrative, which includes exclusive photo evidence (including of the autopsy), is the definitive account of the unsolved murder of Tupac Shakur: the many possible motives, the failed investigation, the rap wars, the killing of Biggie Smalls, the Bloods-Crips connection, the Suge Knight and Death Row Records association, and the subsequent fate of numerous principals involved in the aftermath. 

The music of Tupac Shakur is the legacy of his life. The Killing of Tupac Shakur is the legacy of his death.
