This is a collection of over 100 poems written by Tupac Shakur when he was 19. They confront topics from poverty to motherhood. They are presented in his own handwriting on one page and a typed version on the other.

Okay, seriously, I don't get all the fuss about this. While there are a few nice lines here and there, the bulk of the poetry is pretty juvenile. Which is fine, he was 19. He writes about girls more than anything else, which is understandable. Again - 19. I guess I just don't understand why his adolescent poetry is considered so much better than other adolescent poetry....
