Eminem’s Paper on Tupac in Paper Magazine

Paper magazine asked rap icon, Eminem to pay homage to Tupac Shakur through essay in the upcoming issue, on stands on October 20th.

​The essay was a page long and Eminem focused on Tupac’s versatility throughout his music and what Tupac meant to him.

We focused on two profound paragraphs written by Eminem as he explains why he was impressed. Eminem wrote, “The school I come from growing up, we spent a lot of time studying rappers, everyone from N.W.A. to Public Enemy to Big Daddy Kane to Kool G Rap to Rakim to Special Ed, taking all these bits and piece from each one. Tupac was the first one to really help me learn how to make songs that felt like something.​​

He was so versatile — if you weren’t in the mood for what he was doing on this song here, he’s got something for you over here. He covered such a broad perspective and there were so many different sides to him, but the best part about him overall was that he was a human being.
