"Requests for a Tupac came early and often. I had painted him a few times to follow up the Biggie Smalls piece I did a few years back, but they didn’t quite cut it, and were filed into the dumpster.
Trying to figure out a concept for Tupac was quite difficult because he himself seemed to be quite contradictory. On one hand he was a very militant and articulate artist who used his platform to address social and political issues. I’ve always stated that I gravitate towards artist who have something to say and he certainly did. On the other hand, he would do a complete one eighty and sing a track that could only be described as gangster rap. He seemed to be pulled back and forth between the two worlds. Part Bob Dylan and part Eazy E.
The concept finally revealed itself to me through a series of events that lead me to watch the Netflix series Unsolved followed by the motion picture All Eyes on Me. The fire for the project was re-ignited through these shows and the concept, leaning towards the philosophical side of Tupac, soon followed." - Stickman
