Tupac Shakur was locked up in Clinton Correctional Facility for sexual assault charges back in 1995. While incarcerated, Shakur wrote a four-page essay to Black American Youth called “Is Thug Life Dead?” but the essay never got published for the world to read. The essay recently has sold for$172,725.
In the essay, Pac describes three main stages of his life, saying, According to XXlMag pac says “Ours begins with a young DustKicker, a ThugNigga then finally a BossPlaya … Each stage has many obstacles and pleasure, but they are all lethal if not played properly … A regular Playa plays women. A Boss Playa plays life. A Boss Playa is a thinker, a leader, a builder, a moneymaker, a souljah, a teacher and most of all, a Man!” Toward the end of the essay, Shakur advises the youth to “avoid the PlayaHaters and evil envious ‘homies’ they will bring U harm. It ain’t all good my people Be Aware! Hopefully this will do some of you some good.” Finally, he states, “I promise you one thing when I touchdown it will shake the world!” I think it’s safe to say Shakur did just that.
