Some of the legendary Tupac Shakur's earliest recorded material will hit stores next month in an album titled "Shakurspeare." Featuring music he recordeded over 20 years ago, the album is a collection of 2Pac vocals that were originally recorded on a cappella on a cassette over two decades ago (1988). Digitally mastered with production by several Baltimore producers, the album will also feature a cover with paintings showing Pac like William Shakesspeare.
"Shakuspeare," will be released on Born Busy Records, which holds Darrin Bastfield as their CEO. "I was there when Tupac heard himself for the first time rapping on a recording," Bastfield said in a statement. "As he sat in the cafeteria of the Baltimore School for the Arts it was as if he couldnt believe that he was listening to himself. Just as Tupac was quietly amazed by hearing himself, I want people to hear Tupac as a young artist in his very first recordings ever having fun, rapping about issues that concerned us, and most importantly giving a cautionary and timely 'Message of Peace' in his own voice as if he was already a big rap star with a reputation to uphold."
