Watch any 2Pac interview (hell, listen to any song) and it becomes immediately apparent he was more than just a gangster rapper; he was a visionary, a revolutionary and a man of the people. With such powerful and insightful words, who better than Tupac Shakur to bring to life?
That’s what PBS Digital Studios have brilliantly done, setting an uncut 2Pac interview with Entertainment Weekly’s Benjamin Svetkey from 1994 to animation for their Blank on Blank series. Makaveli speaks profoundly on life, death, religion, fame, the media, prison and Thug Life. Once again, ‘Pac’s foresight was eerily accurate when he says, “I feel like a tragic hero in a Shakespeare play.”
