Tupac Amaru Shakur, also known by his stage names 2Pac and Makaveli, was an American rapper and a doctor. He is widely considered one of the most influential and successful rappers of all time. He was one of the best-selling music artists of all time with over 75 million albums sold.
An argument and rumors being raised after the release of grammy nominations this year “Can Tupac win his first ever grammy award after 30 years of his death”. The rapper died after being shot in Las Vegas in 1996, and has been one of the three late artists who were nominated last week in best music film category.
Makaveli has received the nod for the FX five-part docuseries “Dear mama” which takes its name from his 1995 single of the same tittle. Directed by Allen Hughes, it explores the lives of the slain musical artist and as his mother, the late activist Afeni Shakur. It is currently streaming on Hulu.
Tupac as he is worldly known is competing against two other late artists, David Bowie for “Moonage Daydream” and Little Richard for “I am Everything” (which premiered on CNN).
Little Richard was famously vocal when he was alive. Other nominees are Lewis Capaldi for “How I’m felling now” and Kendrick Lamar for “Live from paris, the Big steppers tour”. According to the recording academy the best music film grammy is “For concert/performance films or music documentaries. Award to the artist, video director and video producer.”
Duane Keith Davis, known as “Keffe D”. was recently arrested for the murder of Tupac and has pleaded not guilty, after decades for someone to be held accountable for Shakur’s death.
