After the FBI’s vault revealed documents regarding Tupac’s death, more never-before-released information on the iconic rapper has appeared online. This time, however, it comes in the shape of an interview with him during his time spent in prison at Clinton Correctional Facility in 1995. The interview is featured in a DVD entitled Tupac Uncensored and Uncut: The Lost Prison Tapes, which was released back in January on Amazon. However, all 44 minutes of the film have been made available for viewing in the three separate YouTube videos on this page. Read more about the fascinating piece below.
As Tupac’s interviewer announces, ‘Tupac, this interview is not about your trial, or your court appeals. It is about Tupac, the inner man, then, and now.’
Featuring an uncut and never-before-seen interview at the Clinton Correctional Facility, TUPAC UNCENSORED AND UNCUT: THE LOST PRISON TAPES presents a raw look into Tupac’s world, as the rapper riffs on topics ranging from his involvement with gang life to prisons in America to his relationship with his mother. What emerges is a moving self-portrait of an artist who sees himself as fundamentally misunderstood: He may have diagnosed thug life, but he didn’t invent it, and he is determined to uplift not destroy the black community.
Capturing the intensity and passion of a fierce talent, TUPAC UNCENSORED AND UNCUT: THE LOST PRISON TAPES offers a glimpse inside the mind of the enigmatic artist whose music is, in his own words, ‘all about life.’
