Tupac Shakur- the name means a whole lot these days. It carries more weight than almost any other Hip-Hop artist in history. He is looked at in so many different ways it is tough to actually grasp his legacy or figure out what to think of him. But one thing is for sure, while he was with us, 2pac was one of the most influential rappers in the history of the game.
Before his death, 2pac along with his fellow outlaw members put together different personas or alias from various historical figures, thus spawning the birth of Makaveli. This new persona 2pac displayed characterized a different side of 2pac, a side many emcees did not want to cross paths with. This new Makaveli side of Pac brought anger, vengeance, raw energy and a thug life image that was looked at as so real, no one would be able to duplicate it, even years after his death. After his tragic death, Deathrow decided to release 2pac’s first posthumous album, entitled, Makavlei “The 7 Day Theory”
