Description


The highly anticipated anthology from music industry executive Aiyisha T. Obafemi chronicles and commemorates the societal, and cultural contributions of legendary icon, Tupac Amaru Shakur.


Tupac Amaru Shakur, is unquestionably hailed as one of the most influential rappers of all time. Known to many by his stage names 2pac and Makaveli, his contributions to the entertainment industry and the world as a songwriter and actor consciously shaped the destiny of scores of generations through his unapologetic activism and efforts to shed light against a backdrop of an America in search of justice for all.


Born June 16, 1971, in East Harlem, New York, NY as the son of Black Panthers, Tupac's destiny was to challenge societal norms that far too often justified inequality and systemic oppression.


Through an offering of poignant, unabridged, stories and anecdotes, A Light On A Hill is an unyielding compilation told through the eyes of a vast array of cultural icons and influencers who recognized the heroism in documenting divine wisdom and insight imparted by Tupac prior to his untimely passing.


Candid interviews from Angie Martinez, Bun B., D.J. Trauma, Marshawn Lynch, Free Marie, Omari Hardwick, YZ, D-Nice, April Walker, David Banner, Big Krit, Chaka Zulu, Terri J. Vaughn, Shanti Das, Stephen Hill, Mack Wilds, and more with a moving foreword by Sway Calloway, and afterword by Tupac's sister, Set Shakur serve to further preserve his genius and commemorate his 50th birthday.
