PBS’s Blank on Blank Brings Lost Tupac Interview from 1994 to Life
PBS’s Blank on Blank recently aired a previously unseen 1994 interview between Tupac and Benjamin Svetkey of Entertainment Weekly. To bring the interview to life, animator Patrick Smith has added a black-and-white animation depicting the late rapper as the complex and introspective person he was. The interview occurred at a time when Tupac had recently been accused of raping a woman, and while he was acquitted on most of the charges, he would spend 11 months in jail as a result. The interview is also notable for the answers he gives, some of which are very foretelling. Check it out now.
