A mismatched pair pushed together on a road trip from South Central L.A. to Oakland, Justice (Jackson) and Lucky (Tupac Shakur) have only one thing in common: they can't stand each other.

Tupac is one of the best selling rap artists of all time.

BACK COVER: A legend after a bullet killed him at the age of twenty-five. Tupac Shakur was the most compelling-- and controversial-- rap musician of his day. Far from being the insolent "gangsta" the press put forth, Shakur was fiercely intelligent, fearless, polarizing, and determined to make his mark. Darrin Bastfield grew up with him in a rough Baltimore neighborhood.

His legacy is indomitable -- remaining vibrant and alive. Here now, newly discovered, are Tupac's most honest and intimate thoughts conveyed through the pure art of poetry -- a mirror into his enigmatic life and its many contradictions.
