Superstar, Janet Jackson, and the late lyrical legend, Tupac Shakur, are among the nominees for the induction into the 2017 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. According to ‘People Magazine’, this marks the second consecutive year on the ballot for Jackson. Shakur made it onto the list of nominees in his first year of eligibility. Artists must have released their first single or album at least 25 years ago, or no later than 1991 for the 2017 nominees, to be considered. Shakur released his first album 2Pacalyspse Now in 1991.

Jackson and Shakur are both stars in the John Singleton classic, ‘Poetic Justice’.

Congrats to both!

The anticipation for Tupac’s biopic, ‘All Eyez on Me’ is growing like a wildfire. While we wait for its official release, we get a teaser ON HIS BIRTHDAY. The late great Tupac would have turned 45-years-old today [6/16]. Some of us are still in mourning over his tragic death, but we all know the music and memories he’s left behind provides a cushion for our broken hearts. Now, we get to watch his life story on the silver screen…with an actor that could be his twin.

 

Demetrius Shipp plays Tupac Shakur and I have no doubt, he’ll get an NAACP Image Award! Maybe even an Oscar!

A clip of the late great Tupac Shakur shows him explaining his views on generosity and responsibility; traits he feels some wealthy people like Donald Trump lack. This is a clip from MTV News from 1992.

Tupac was very passionate with his explanation and made a lot of sense…as he always did. In his own special way, he warned us about Trump.
