2Pacalypse Now is the debut studio album by American rapper Tupac Shakur, released on November 12, 1991.
TMZ has obtained photographic evidence that Tupac Shakur is alive and well and drinking Hand Grenades in New Orleans -- unless we`re terribly mistaken.

We were unable to get any sort of DNA evidence -- but this photo is good enough for us.

When Christopher Wallace, a.k.a. the Notorious B.I.G., died in a hail of bullets in March 1997 at age 24, he left behind a compelling yet contradictory legacy as one of hip-hop`s premier personalities. So it is with "Notorious," a riveting but strangely elusive biopic that opens on Friday via Fox Searchlight.
The film brings aboard many of the key players from his life as producers but can`t quite solve the mystery of who was "Biggie."
Nevertheless, this is the first gotta-see movie of 2009. It has terrific performances, a powerful soundtrack and... Read More

Let the Lord judge the criminals.
I` ve been shot five times but im still breathing living proof there a god if you need a reason.
Used the name Makaveli which is an altered spelling of Machiavelli, about whom he read while in prison.
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.
