Not only will fans have access to his handwritten notes, lyrics, and poems, but they’ll be able to view his performances, interviews and even clothes he wore.
“It means a lot to me that the Grammy Museum have chosen to honor my son,” said the late rapper’s mother, Afeni Shakur.
She added, “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.”
