Gangsta-rap star Tupac Shakur, killed in a drive-by shooting last year, had so much to live for: the fans who sent four of his albums platinum, his dreams of a baby with his fiancée, Quincy Jones’s daughter Kidada, his plans to help needy kids from backgrounds like his own. It was a fantastical charge, and Leonard Bernstein, Otto Preminger, Donald Sutherland, and Jane Fonda proclaimed her innocent. “From the moment he was born,” she says, “I measured his life in five-year periods. He was a gift.”He was snatched away just as his music predicted: gangsta-style, in a hail of heavy-caliber metal, fired, fittingly, from a late-model Cadillac. “I know one day they’re gonna shut the game down, but I gotta go around the board as many times as I can before it’s my turn to leave.”Go around, Tupac Shakur did: taking turns without asking, breaking hearts and rules.
But the violent world that gave him riches also led him into drug dealing, a prison term, and the dangerous embrace of Death Row Records C. But the prosecutors had one thing right: Afeni Shakur was a person to contend with. Months before, he had filmed his own death in a video. And when he left the board, gunned down by still-unknown assailants for still-unknown reasons, the chips were piled high: tens of millions in record sales; six movies; hundreds of poems and lyrics; plans upon plans upon plans, including funding a chain of day-care centers to ease the burdens of mothers like Afeni.
