New Video From Rapper Tupac Debuts

"When

Ure Hero Falls," a new video honoring the memory of the late Tupac Shakur,

has world premiered exclusively on AllHipHop.com.

The video, which

features rare, unreleased outtakes of Tupac himself, is the latest in a series

of commemorative events celebrating the life and legacy of the slain rapper,

who died 10 years ago.

"When Ure

Hero Falls" is the first single from The Rose, Vol. 2 – Music Inspired

by Tupac’s Poetry.

The song, which

was taken from Tupac’s contemporary poetry collection, The Rose that Grew

from Concrete, is performed by the Impact Kids, a group comprised of students

from the Tupac Amaru Shakur Center for the Arts (TASCA), a full-service performing

arts complex.

Directed by Gobi,

the "When Ure Hero Falls" video features performance footage from

the Impact Kids, as well as a wall engraved with a message from the Center’s

students which reads, "What we do now matters forever. It’s not a game."

The video also

shows the TASCA highlighting the center’s memorial Peace Garden, the bronze

statue of Tupac and the "One Brick at a Time" wall (in which individuals

or corporations can sponsor memorial bricks engraved with their own message).

The Rose, Vol.

2 – Music Inspired by Tupac’s Poetry features guest appearances from The

Outlawz, Shock G., Talib Kweli, dead prez, Ludacris, Memphis Bleek and others.

The album is in stores now.
