Special Tribute Issue: XXL Honors 15-Year Anniversary of Tupac Shakur’s Death in Sept. Issue

This upcoming September 13, 2011 will mark the 15-year anniversary of Tupac Shakur’s death and the #1 best-selling music magazine XXL pays tribute to one of the greatest, if not the greatest rapper in their forthcoming “Special Tribute Issue.” They’re celebrating the life of Pac.

In this issue, XXL Editor-In-Chief Vanessa Satten sat down with Tupac’s biological father, Bill Garland.

[Tupac] cared for people,” he said. “That was his main thing. He really cared for people. I think that’s why he would get so upset when people tried to question his commitment, his love for Black women or Black men. The East Coast/West Coast, you know, that’s a fabrication. I don’t have to begin to tell you that. So when that was questioned, it bothered him. Because he would give his heart or soul. He was a giving person. He would give anything to people. He would go in a store. [If there was a] Black man who couldn’t afford a $1,500 pair of boots, he would buy ’em for him. Think that Black man would ever forget Tupac? That’s just the way he is. But I don’t think that he did it for that. He did it because he had it, and he didn’t. That’s the way he is.”-Bill Garland

The  September 2011 issue, will be hitting newststands nationwide on August 16.
