This book is about the search for Tupac Shakur and how people felt about him, before he died and after. It shows how people adored him, and his music. When Dyson interviewed "Big Tray Dee" another rap artist, he started crying.That really showed how much people loved tupac and how he effected a lot of peoples lives. I loved this book, it wasn't only about "searching for Tupac", but also was about his life and where he grew up. It talked about all his struggles in life and how close he was with his mom. I learned so much about Tupac from this book. I would definetely recommend this book to people who like to read about people because I now have a whole different perspective on him.
