The Tupac Shakur estate provided the items for the exhibit. The late entertainer's mother, Afeni Shakur, is overseeing the project.
“It means a lot to me that [Grammy Museum Executive Director] Bob Santelli and the Grammy Museum have chosen to honor my son with their upcoming exhibit of his works,” stated Afeni. “Tupac's writings are an honest reflection of his passions for, and about life. His timeless messages have instilled hope for those who have little, and for others, they serve as a catalyst for change. His words continue to motivate and inspire new generations.”
Pac memorabilia was previously part of the Grammy Museum's "Hip-Hop: A Cultural Odyssey" in 2011. The California representative's legacy has also been covered in Grammy Museum workshops such as "An Introduction to Hip-Hop" and "The Art Of Songwriting: Hip Hop."
"All Eyez on Me: The Writings of Tupac Shakur" will run at the Grammy Museum February 2 through April 22.
