As a budding musician, Tupac joined the Digital Underground, which helped to launch his career. His first album, 2Pacalypse Now, was released in 1991 and his second, Strictly 4 My N.I.G.G.A.Z., hit shelves in 1993. By 1995, Tupac had become a household name and was arguably the most famous rapper of his generation.
He had starred in two movies and was working to establish himself as an actor. However, Tupac’s career was cut short when he was shot and killed in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas, Nevada. He was only 25 years old.
At a young age, 2Pac was exposed to both the Black Nationalist and Black Panther movements and was later given a political voice through his poetry. His mother was a member of the Black Panthers, and his father was a Black Nationalist. As a teenager, Tupac became involved in marijuana and cocaine dealing but only for a short time.
He attended the Baltimore School for the Arts and the American Youth Academy in Los Angeles, where he was given the nickname “2Pac” for his name “Tupac” with a “2” in front of it, like a modern-day “Bad Boy.” He would later go on to form a rap group called, “2Pacalypse Now” with a few of his schoolmates. This was the beginning of his music career.

2Pac’s Net Worth
As of 2019, Tupac’s net worth is $55 million. This is certainly a massive sum for anyone to earn, but it pales in comparison to the $275 million net worth of his contemporary and rival, the Notorious B.I.G. Tupac’s net worth is attributed to his prolific career as a rapper from 1991 to 1996.
In 1991, his first album was released, and he signed a contract with Interscope Records. In 1993, he released his second album, “Strictly for My N.I.G.G.A.Z.” The album earned him $10 million. In 1995, Tupac released his third album, “Me Against the World” while he was in prison. The album sold over 5 million copies, making it his most successful album.
In 1996, he released his fourth album, “All Eyez on Me” before his death. Unfortunately, Tupac didn’t manage his money well. He spent a lot of money on jewelry, and cars, and even gave away a lot of money to charities. At the same time, he was paying to defend himself against the numerous lawsuits that had been filed against him. In the end, it’s likely that the vast majority of his money went toward lawyers and jewelry.
