Video: Animated Tupac Shakur Interview on ‘Blank on Blank’

posted by Oscar December 3, 2013

The latest edition of PBS Digital Studios’ Blank on Blank series features the legendary Tupac Shakur, who opened up to Entertainment Weekly’s Benjamin Svetkey back in 1994 about his career in Hip Hop & films, life & death, defining the iconic “thug life” and more. Looking back it’s interesting to see his views on the “machine” that he had become at that point of his career.

See that interview above.
