Before watching this i thought that 2pac was just a thug, but after that all changed. i never knew he was a poet aswell as a rapper and an actor so i've since read most of his poems and seen his films. I agree with all he said and done because it was the right thing to do and to my knowledge he was the only person to have stood up to the law and the justice system in America. The movie hit me like no other before and i learnt alot from it. Peace to all.

My favorite part of the movie is when they told about his life and that they had an interview with him when he was 17. They showed what his life was lilke and where it was at. It showed about his mom. The movie was great I suggest you see it a.s.a.p.

i really was feeling one of 2pacs first records which was all eyes on me after listening to that cd it really made me think about what type of life this man live. first of all his words was on point and everything he rap about in that cd is going on now i mean he was a smart man very resoureful with his words. i think even though he is gone his music will always keep him alive in my eyes.

After viewing the new 2pac DVD ''Thug Angel-Life as an Outlaw,'' I was shocked on how much information was left out about his life. Suge Night the CEO of Deathrow records (Now Tha Row Records) Was not even interviewed for this documentry. How can the man that made 2Pac's biggest selling CD (All Eyez on Me) that went nine times platinum not have something to say about Pac? The DVD basically has a focus on pre Deathrow Records. Tupac was a star before Deathrow, but Tupac became a SUPER star after Deathrow helped. Also, none of his music was played through out the DVD maybe because of copyright laws? Overall the DVD isn't all that bad, but I would advise whoever to make another DVD including Post Deathrow.

If you want to get to know the real Tupac you have to see this. An Amazing job by director Peter Spirer! To weave all the archival material together and to tell such a great story, it's a must if your a hip-hop head. What a shame that a man with so much potential isn't with us any more. I always thought Tupac would have changed the world had he lived, now after seeing this film I am sure of it. Peace
