Storyline

Tupac - ResurrectionMany unauthorized video titles have been released about the life of rap superstar Tupac Shakur. Tupac: Resurrection is the only one to be both executive produced by his mother, former Black Panther Afeni Shakur, and benefit from access to the MTV archives. The documentary is the feature-length debut for director Lauren Lazin, who has created several highly rated programs for both MTV and PBS.

Using voice-overs, interviews, and other vocal tracks recorded by the late artist himself, the film explores his life, music, and death from fatal gunshot wounds in 1996. Includes rare footage, home movies, private photographs, and excerpts from his personal poetry, journals, and letters.

During the making of the film, MTV reached out to his fan base by requesting submissions of Tupac memorabilia to be used in the film. C'mon America 2003 features 13 live performances from eight-time Grammy winner Sheryl Crow. The set includes more than two hours of footage, including the No. 1 hit "All I Wanna Do" and the Top 10 hits "Everyday Is a Winding Road," "Leaving Las Vegas," and "If It Makes You Happy".

    Besides all his incredible talent, Tupac was an exemplary human being. He risked his life to try to reach the youth and all of us really, with truth. He showed us his best, flaws, his sensitive and angry sides all in an effort to show us a truth and what a real human being is. His songs are filled with passion, pain and pure genius. I put him up there with MLK, Malcolm X, Jesus, JFK, RFK, John Lenon, anyone who rebeled against the control system. Again, a great person who had the courage to express himself, show his love towards others and speak from his heart publicly despite all the risk and turmoil in his life. I appreciate the huge impact he had on my life. He showed me there was someone out there that genuinely cared.

    Tupac was clearly a very explosive personality. Very talented for Hip/Hop fans. I wasn't a fan of his but whenever I saw any clips of him in action or in interviews; I knew he wouldn't live long. How did I know this? It was obvious how he led his life and by the aggressive force in how he expressed everything. His death was how I expected it would end and not because he often mentioned death himself. People with intense/explosive attitudes/personalities always die violently or through overdosing on drugs or alcohol.

    One of the greater docs on this site... I always loved Pac and anyone who never understood him should watch this film asap. What ever happened to the poet rap? Or the rapper that spoke for the needy? Nowadays its a worst economy than in those times an all the top rappers are no where near Pac's level. RIP 2 a true legend.
