Using archival footage, dramatic re-enactments and interviews with his family and friends, the final moments of Tupac’s life are documented in this intriguing documentary film.
On September 6, 1996, the most successful hip-hop artist of all time, Tupac Shakur has just finished shooting his latest video in Los Angeles. Tupac says he will one day go out in a blaze of glory. Within the next 24 hours, his prophecy will come true…
Although he was reluctant about going to Las Vegas to play a gig, he eventually relents, and enjoys some high stakes gambling before attending a heavyweight prizefight featuring his friend, Mike Tyson. Pumped up by Tyson’s victory, he is himself involved in a violent brawl, and heads back to his hotel to freshen up. When Tupac finally arrives at the club for his own performance, a white Cadillac pulls up and a gunman fires a heavy round of bullets at the rapper’s car.
Mortally wounded with a punctured lung, Tupac dies six days later in hospital. He is only 25.
