display_descriptionTen years after his murder, rap artist Tupac Shakur is even more loved, contested and celebrated than he was in life. His posthumously released albums, poetry, and movies still top the charts; he inspires countless plays, articles, and websites by fans and critics alike. Who was Tupac and why does he matter so much?" Here, "hip-hop intellectual" Michael Eric Dyson, acclaimed for his writing on Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr., as well as his passionate defense of black youth culture, turns his attention to one of the most enigmatic and enduring figures of our time. Through original interviews and reporting, Dyson offers us a wholly original understanding of the controversial icon who has been called the "black Elvis".--From publisher description.
