Tupac Covers XXL September Issue


 XXL pays tribute to the late Tupac Shakur as we approach the 15th year anniversary of his death, on September 13, by speaking with those who were close to him. The Issue will hit stands on August 16th but you can check out XXLMag for some exclusive content. Below is an excerpt from Tupac’s biological father, Bill Garland.
“[Tupac] cared for people,” he said. “That was his main thing. He really cared for people. I think that’s why he would get so upset when people tried to question his commitment, his love for Black women or Black men. The East Coast/West Coast, you know, that’s a fabrication. I don’t have to begin to tell you that. So when that was questioned, it bothered him. Because he would give his heart or soul. He was a giving person. He would give anything to people. He would go in a store. [If there was a] Black man who couldn’t afford a $1,500 pair of boots, he would buy ’em for him. Think that Black man would ever forget Tupac? That’s just the way he is. But I don’t think that he did it for that. He did it because he had it, and he didn’t. That’s the way he is.”
