Tupac Shakur was the biggest rebel who has known hip hop so far. He truly lived the street life he describes in his rappings. As a result, he hardly survived shooting and was more likely to find himself in the courtroom than in the studio. Tupac was furore due to his oddly staggering rap style, where he did not rub. It was a success formula that made him one of the best-selling rappers ever. Tupac died at the age of 25 when he was shot down in 1996 after a boxing contest. In 2012, he returned as a hologram during a performance at the Coachella festival.
