Thug Angel takes you beyond the drama of Tupac’s notoriety in the press through all-new interviews with friends, collaborators and scholars as they look back on Tupac and define his legacy today.

In the $3 billion industry of hip-hop music, no one has touched as many lives with a microphone as Tupac Shakur. In this never-before-seen footage, see Tupac at seventeen, a young man at the edge of his destiny, speaking out about injustice on the streets of Oakland. See him at the brink of his stardom, kickin’ freestyles with Treach, Biggie and Grand Puba. See him at the shooting range, at home, at the highs and lows of his career, as a man constantly plagued by and provoking the media.
