Source Magazine #78 Tupac Shakur Cover

Source Magazine TupacOne of my favorite Tupac covers. First thing I notice is an ad for Aura Bass Shaker speakers, you put them under your car seat so you can feel the bass. And 1 and Karl Kani plaster this issue. At this point in 95 you had a common theme in the state of hip hop: “The Hip-Hop Nation has essentially given up all political power, social consciousness, and knowledge of self. We prefer to fantasize about owning mansions and yachts and obtaining them through the exploitation of other people.” The Fugees prepare to release the Score, and Jay-Z and Rocafella promoting Reasonable Doubt. Article on up and comer D’Angelo who eventually “went butt ass naked for his record to sell”. Very entertaining article on Tupac right after he had been released on bail from jail after doing 11 months. Article title is : Death Wish
