“All Eyez on Me: The Writings of Tupac Shakur” Exhibit to Open at Grammy Museum
All Eyez on Me: The Writings of Tupac Shakur opens at the Grammy Museum on February 7 and will include handwritten notes, clothes, lyrics and poems, and video footage of the rapper's most iconic performances.
“Tupac Shakur was one of the most original and important of all hip hop artists. His writings are both powerful and provocative,” Grammy Museum Executive Director Robert Santelli said in a statement. “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 Tupac Shakur estate provided all the items that will be on display. His mother, Afeni Shakur, oversees the estate and has played a large role in helping this exhibit come to fruition. “It means a lot to me that Bob Santelli and the Grammy Museum have chosen to honor my son with their upcoming exhibit of his works,” she said in the same statement.
“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,” she continued.P
