It was so frustrating watching Tupac Resurrection for the first time today. As I was listening to his monologue and interviews that were beautifully added to the flick, I always knew he was great at what he was; an entertainer. However, as a fellow Gemini & artist, for the first time I was able to feel his pain and hurt. This brotha was a classically trained artist early on in life yet was well aware that he had so much more to learn. He learned ballet, and musical theatre and things that your average "thug" from the streets would have never embrace in public. He was finally starting to realize that his final deal with the devil was a bad mistake. He was bailed out of jail and owed so much money to Death Row, he was literally a slave. His slave master made sure that his name was bringing DR lots of money, yet like other black entertainers such as Little Richards, Frankie Lymon & TLC he wasn't seeing a dime of the $$$$.
Tupac would have been 34 years old this year. He could have gone back to school, got his degree and have been a multidiscipline art instructor or even a college professor with the wealth of knowledge he possessed. Instead he died a prophet yet a slave at 25 years of age. What a loss to my industry.!
