An exhibit dedicated to the writing of Tupac Shakur opens at the Grammy Museum next month.
Tupac fans from the East coast to the West Coast can get an up-close look at the iconic rapper’s creative process at “All Eyez on Me: The Writings of Tupac Shakur,” a new exhibit opening at the Grammy Museum, according to the LA Times.
“Tupak Shakur was one of the most original and important of all hip-hop artists. His writing was both powerful and provocative,” said Robert Santelli, executive director of the Grammy Museum, “It is an honor to be the first music museum to acknowledge Tupac’s legacy and to bring context to what was an incredible career.”
The exhibit will include Tupac’s handwritten notes, lyrics, and poems. Museum goers will also be treated to footage of his interviews and performances, and even the outfits and clothes he wore.
“It means a lot to me that the Grammy Museum have chosen to honor my son, said th late roper’s mother, Afeni Shakur. “Tupac’s writings are an honest reflection of his passions for and about life. His timeless messages have instilled hope for those who have little, and for others, they serve as a catalyst for change. His words continue to motivate and inspire new generations.”
“All Eyez on Me: The Writings of Tupac Shakur” opens in Los Angeles on February 2
