Death Rap chronicles the triumphs and tragedies of the notorious hip-hop superstar Tupac Shakur, the figurehead of a musical movement that came to define black culture in America and beyond. Sharp, poignant and glossy; this explosive graphic novel traces the events leading up to the death of one of modern music's most charismatic performers. The collaboration between provocative and combustible writers Barnaby Legg and Jim McCarthy, and renowned artist Flameboy; with his potent, gritty and up-front visual imagery; produce a new perspective on the controversial events surrounding the rise of Death Row records and the brutality of street Gang warfare. From hazy blue skies over south central Los Angeles to the bleak back streets of New York, the book has all the intrigue of great crime literature, all the shadows of film noir, and all the tragedy of a unique talent cut down at just 25 years of age. Contains some explicit content.
