  • The Rose that Grew from Concrete by Tupac Amaru Shakur
    See what the book jacket has to say:
  • Tupac Shakur’s most intimate and honest thoughts were uncovered only after his death with The Rose that Grew from Concrete, a collection of deeply personal poetry handwritten by Tupac in his own private notebooks over the course of his life–a mirror into his enigmatic world and its many contradictions written from the time he was nineteen.
    A complex life cycle encapsulated in seventy-two brief poems, The Rose that Grew from Concrete has become a legitimate modern classic and a touchstone for aspiring artists the world over. It is also the purest reflection of Tupac’s spirit, his energy–and his ultimate message of hope.”
    “‘In the Event of My Demise’
    Dedicated 2 those curious
    In the event of my Demise
    when my heart can beat no more
    I Hope I Die For a Principle
    or A Blieft that I had lived 4
    I will die Before my Time
    Because I feel the shadow’s Depth
    so much I wanted 2 accomplish
    Before I reached my Death
    I have come 2 grips with the possibility
    and wiped the last tear from my eyes
    I Loved All who were Positive
    In the event of my Demise!”
