The Grammy Museum's latest exhibit will honour the career of Tupac, with a special focus on his songwriting talent. All Eyez On Me: The Writings Of Tupac Shakur will run from Monday February 2 until Wednesday April 22, and is set to feature his handwritten lyrics and poems, his outfits (including the Versace suit he wore to the 1996 Grammys) and the tape box and studio notes from his first recording session after his prison release.
In the words of Afeni Shakur, Tupac's mother: "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. The world is a better place because of him."
In other Tupac news, the audio from one of his final interviews surfaced online for the first time last week; read 10 of the most salient quotes, on the consequences of fame and why he never wanted to sell more records than the Beatles, here. Meanwhile, we're waiting patiently on that eternally in-the-works biopic, which is reportedly set to begin production this summer.
