Death Rap - Tupac Shakur: A Life

by Barnaby Legg, Jim McCarthy, and Flameboy

This explosive graphic novel chronicles the triumphs and tragedies of the notorious hip-hop superstar, who was the figurehead of a musical movement that came to define black culture in America and beyond. The marriage of Barnaby Legg and Jim McCarthy's incendiary writing with Flameboy's potent, gritty visuals produces a new perspective on the controversial events surrounding the rise of Death Row Records, the brutality of street gang warfare, and the poetry of murder set to a heavy break-beat. From the hazy blue skies over South Central Los Angeles to the back streets of New York, the book has all the intrigue of great crime literature, all the shadows of film noir, and all the tragedy of a unique talent cut down at just 25 years of age.
