All Eyez On Me- 2Pac Nail Art Tribute

Hello Friends,

I hope your week is going well and that you have something to motivate you. 

I chose to pay tribute to 2Pac in nail form today. I know that when I am having a difficult time getting going in the morning, I like to listen to music to lift my spirits. When I have a tough task ahead of me, I like to listen to Gangsta Rap so that I can get in the headspace to handle anything that comes my way. I was raised listening to the likes of E-40, Snoop Dogg, and of course 2Pac. 


Tupac Amaru Shakur was born on Jun 16,1971 in East Harlem. His name was originally Lesane Parish Crooks, his Mother, Afeni Shakur changed his name to Tupac after a Peruvian revolutionary figure. Tupac's parents were members of the Black Panther Party which heavily influenced Tupac's more political tracks. 

Tupac and his family moved to Baltimore in 1986 where he attended a performing arts high school. He studied acting, ballet, poetry, and jazz. In 1988, Tupac's family relocated again to Oakland

, California where he became a roadie and backup dancer for an alternative rap group called Digital Underground. He went by the stage name of "2Pac" when he released his debut album in 1991, "2Pacalypse Now".

2Pac would go on to release several successful albums, star in six films and one TV show. His rise to fame was cut short due to his succumbing to gunshot wounds that were administered during a drive-by shooting.


2Pac was one of the pioneers of West Coast rap and his influence lives on in the hip hop community. 2Pac's catalog ranges from the socially conscious to a testament of Thug life. His flow can be distinguished by his gravelly voice and stressed emphasis at the end of his bars.

Throw up your dubs and take a look at this tribute to a 90's West Coast legend. I went the minimalist route with the tribute. Notice the rhinestone represents his nose ring. Weeeest Siiiiide!
