Tupac Behind Bars
Tupac Behind Bars, written by Michael Christopher, examined a lesser-known period of the late rapper Tupac Shakur’s life when he was incarcerated for an alleged sexual assault at the historical hundred fifty-year-old Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora, NY.
Author Christopher, also referred to as Mr. C by the famous Shakur, worked as a correctional officer at the Clinton Correctional Facility. Christopher and Shakur built an unorthodox friendship as the two navigated life within the facility and discussed the complexities of life with perspectives from polarized worlds.
Furthermore, Christopher does provide the reader with a unique viewpoint of Shakur’s musical legacy. However, the conversations between Christopher and Tupac were a testament to the artists’ character and his deeply held beliefs about life, love, and death, which unveiled Shakur’s soul and how he viewed his work as an actor, rapper, poet, and writer.
Although the book provides a unique lens to examine the late rapper’s life behind bars, the narrative is difficult to follow due to the lack of quality editing present in a few chapters. Moreover, Tupac Shakur fans will find the book an enjoyable read that will aid in preserving the life and work of Tupac Shakur in Hip Hop Memoriam and 1990’s nostalgia.
