Included are the DVD that tells it all--"Thug Angel: The Life of an Outlaw"--plus the "Music From and Inspired By Thug Angel" CD; the brand-new Tupac biography "Holler If You Hear Me" by hip-hop intellectual Michael Eric Dyson, author of "I May Not Get There With You: The True Martin Luther King, Jr," and "Making Malcom: The Myth and Meaning of Malcolm X"; and the all-new bonus DVD "Off the Cutting Room Floor," with more than three hours of never-before-released footage and rare interviews, including behind-the-scenes footage with Tupac and his crew, an uncut interview with Tupac's stepfather Dr. Mutulu Shakur from Atlanta State Prison, commentary with director Peter Spirer, Producers Quincy "QD3" Jones III and Casey Suchan, commentary and an insightful look at Tupac with producers Leila Steinberg and Tracy Robinson, an extended interview with author Michael Eric Dyson, exclusive Biggie and Tupac footage, unedited interview with Tupac at age 17, full-length Tupac interview and behind-the-scenes at the gun range, never-before-released personal audio recordings of Tupac talking about all aspects of his life and career, and revealing interviews with Tupac's stepbrother Mopreme Shakur, Shock G, Treach, Thuglife, Snoop and Edi of the Outlawz, Big Syke, Quincy Jones and Rashida Jones.

Amazon.ca

The title says it all: Tupac Shakur was as much angel as outlaw. Unlike some of the other profiles made in the wake of his passing, Thug Angel doesn't focus only on the first few days of his career or the last few days before his death, but on his entire life. That makes it valuable as much for the fan as for the merely curious. The production was backed by friends and associates and includes never-before-seen material. It's surprisingly evenhanded, juxtaposing footage of Tupac at 17, for example--sounding mature beyond his years--with an interview conducted years later on a shooting range. Passion was still in full effect, but idealism had been replaced by paranoia. Peter Spirer's film is a documentary, not a music video, and contains only snippets of Tupac's work. At its best, Thug Angel makes a compelling case for his continued relevance as an artist and activist. --Kathleen C.

this dvd is great, this dvd shows the real tupac just like the other reviewers said.. one thing puzzled me this whole time ever since tupac got murdered..is he dead or alive?? i've been putting alot of thought into this.. i came to a conclusion, but i'm not really sure.. my conclusion is that he could still be alive.. after he got shot he was of course rushed to the hospital, then some how he survived the shots, then after that he probably told the FBI or the Cops or whatever that he doesn't want the public to know if he's dead or alive, the reason to this?? i think because if the public knew then of course the gangsters that put this whole murder plot up would know too.. this way the gangsters dunno if he's dead or alive so they cant do anytin anymore about tupac..tupac is probably livin in a paradise sum where in this world far away from the public and the FBI is probably supportin him by giving him food and all that stuff...of course my theory can probably be wrong.. I guess God will only know & the FBI...

Did Tupac read some books in prison? Yes. Does this make him smart? No.
Was he a hypocrite in his attitudes towards women? Have you heard his songs, what do you think?
Tupac was a confused man and just a tad paranoid. He wasted his talent and life, that much is plainly evident. In most ways he is not a role model. This is part of the problem, black folk and white suburbanites glamourize this scatter brain because it appeals to their sense of the "tough guy with a heart of gold". How about recognizing the kids who escaped the ghetto and didn't play out the role of a stereotype. Someone who succeeded in science or mathematics, perhaps.
You can romantisize Tupac all you like, but the facts remain, and for all those who aren't aware of this: with film you can take a few clips and make anyone look good...ask Hitler's propaganda people.
Don't buy into the myth.
We can only hope that Tupac would have gotten the help he needed had he lived, but sometimes there are extreme consequences for arrogant reckless lifestyles. This was one of those times.
I hope he found some peace.

Hmmm this is a great Tupac biography thing but I don't think it is the absolute best one released. It didn't cover much of his life after he made it big, or for a matter of fact his death. However, of what it does cover it covers very well. On the other hand the quality of the video if quite weird. It reminded me of the E! True Hollywood Story. You see, this man didn't go out and conduct the interviews for the show, well not all of them anyway, he gathered some from other people interviewing them about Tupac from years and years ago. Some of the people seem very insightful, however, some of the people didn't provide to much insight above the obvious and seemed to be added just to take up time. Overall, there is much good in this movie in information wise, however the production of this move needed MUCH work. It is enteratining at points but at points you tend to fall asleep. There are better biography's out there on the greatest out there. I reccomend going out to get one of them. Thanks for your time and I am out. HOLLA!

im not talking about (thug angel) movie but
It's the latest in entertainment news, and if you haven't heard by now, the Los Angeles Times newspaper has announced that they know who killed rapper Tupac Shakur. Los Angeles Times reporter and prize-winning journalist Chuck Phillips, has declared that the late rapper Notorious B.I.G. (killed the year after) is responsible for Tupac's murder. Earlier on the night of his murder (September 7, 1996) Tupac and Suge Knight had attended a Mike Tyson fight at the MGM Grand Hotel and Ceasars Palace. The first part of Phillip's report appeared in the LA Times today (Friday, Sept. 6, 2002), the second is scheduled to run in tomorrow's edition.
Phillips claims that Biggie (a.k.a. Christopher Wallace) provided the weapon used to kill Tupac as well as a $1 million bounty. The report also identified the man who pulled the trigger as Orlando Anderson, a former member of L.A.'s Southside Crips gang. Just hours before Tupac's death, Anderson was jumped and beaten by Shakur and his bodyguards (who were also part of the Crips' rival gang, the Mob Piru Bloods). Until now, Anderson was never identified as a suspect in Tupac's murder and was later killed in an unrelated shooting. Chuck Phillips' report is based on his year-long investigation which supposedly included interviews with members of the Southside Crips who had never before spoken out about the killing.
Shortly after his beating, the report claims that Anderson and the Crips set up a meeting with the Notorious B.I.G. (who was also in town for the Tyson fight) in the penthouse suite at the MGM. The report further states: "According to people who were present, the Crips envoy explained that the gang was prepared to kill Shakur but expected to collect $1 million for its efforts.

I am not dissapointed with this DVD by any stretch of the imagination. Any ammount of money is worth this DVD and a measily 20 or so dollars is not setting any one with the internet back in theri financial standings. This DVD had ful length interviews, three of which are of tupac and which go for approx 25 mins each. The footage inbetwee the feature is mostly unseen and of good quality. Never have i seen such an accurate portrayal of this man and you can be sure that all of tupacs loved ones support this DVD which is what i like about it most. Alot of people show alot of love for this man and really get you inside the head of tupac himself, his critics ... and the people who had to live through his demise. Watching this film really allows you to personally pay tribute to the realist soldier that ever lived. if u loved him then it can be disturbing to watch, but he deserves to have all those who did and do experience the pain in order to experience the story ("and thats real")
