Are you kidding me?

Once again, the world has committed the mistake of taking the whole 2Pac thing too seriously. Which is to say, seriously at all.

Sez some teh ghey hip-hop site I never read, and regret reading this time:

Nine years after the loss of Tupac Shakur, his likeness will be unveiled at the newly opened Tupac Amaru Shakur Center for the Arts in Stone Mountain, Georgia on the day of his passing - September 13th, 2005.
The statue, created by sculptor Tina Allen, will stand seven-feet tall on a three-foot base, located within a fountain in the shape of a gothic cross universally associated with the slain superstar. Her previous works feature bronze monuments of historic figures ranging from Frederick Douglass and A. Philip Randolph to Nat King Cole and Dr. Martin Luther King.

I can understand you liking "Me Against the World" but making a fucking 7-foot bronze statue of the kid is fucking exaggeration.

I like that they got the same person who did King and Douglas, two of the greatest blacks in American and world history, to also do Tupac. Straight up bullshit.

is it really surprising that a Pac statue is going up at a Pac art building?

it's not like they're putting this thing in downtown Los Angeles or something.

Yeah, I could see if this was Phil Lynott or somebody.
