     LAbyrinth: A Detective Investigates the Murders of Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G., the Implication of Death Row Records' Suge Knight, and the Origins of the Los Angeles Police Scandal
Publisher: Grove Press
Author(s): Randall Sullivan

Acclaimed journalist Randall Sullivan follows Russell Poole, a highly decorated LAPD detective who in 1997 was called to investigate a controversial cop-on-cop shooting, eventually to discover that the officer killed was tied to Marion �Suge? Knight?s notorious gangsta rap label, Death Row Records. During his investigation, Poole came to realize that a growing cadre of black officers were allied not only with Death Row, but with the murderous Bloods street gang. And incredibly, Poole began to uncover evidence that at least some of these �gangsta cops? may have been involved in the murders of rap superstars Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac Shakur.

Igniting a firestorm of controversy in the music industry and the Los Angeles media, the hardcover publication of LAbyrinth helped to prompt two lawsuits against the LAPD (one brought by the widow and mother of Notorious B.I.G., the other brought by Poole himself) that may finally bring this story completely out of the shadows.

     Have Gun Will Travel
Publisher: Main Street Books
Author(s): Ronin Ro

Death Row Records is one of the most successful music labels of all time.��From its inception in 1992, it exploded on the rap music scene with sales climbing to the $125 million mark in just four years.��Even more noticeable than the label's financial success is the effect it had on American youth culture, making gangsta rap more popular with suburban white youth and MTV viewers than traditional rock groups.��But under the guidance of six-foot-four-inch, 300-pound CEO Marion "Suge" Knight, Death Row also became the most controversial record label in history--a place where violence, gang feuds, threats, intimidation, and brushes with death were business as usual.

Have Gun Will Travel details the spectacular rise and violent fall of a music label that had at its heart a ferocious criminal enterprise cloaked behind corporate facades that gave it a guise of legitimacy.��With inside access no other writer can claim, Ronin Ro, the country's preeminent rap journalist, exposes the facts everyone else is afraid to divulge--from the initial bankrolling of Death Row by a leader of L.A.'s notorious Bloods gang, to links with New York's Genovese crime family.��Have Gun Will Travel lays bare the full story behind this influential label, including the still-unsolved murders of Tupac Shakur and the Notorious B.I.G., as well as Suge Knight's rise to power, his fight with East Coast rap titans such as Sean "Puffy" Combs, and his eventual imprisonment.

Although it has been all over the news--from The Wall Street Journal to Rolling Stone--this is a timeless story about an empire built on greed, corruption, murder, and exploitation.��With exclusive interviews and bloodcurdling eyewitness accounts, Have Gun Will Travel combines the behind-the-scenes fascination of books like Hit Men and Hit and Run with the violence and dramatic sweep of The Godfather, in a brilliant and blistering document of contemporary culture.

     The Killing of Tupac Shakur
Publisher: Huntington Press
Author(s): Cathy Scott

On September 6, 1996, rapper Tupac Shakur was gunned down in a drive-by shooting a few blocks from the fabled Las Vegas Strip. The Killing of Tupac Shakur digs deep into the events leading up to, and following, the headline-grabbing murder. This in-depth chronicle focuses on Tupac?s double life as an entertainment superstar and a convict, spotlighting his meteoric rise to the top of the world of hip-hop in the context of the dangerous economics of renegade record labels. It examines all the possible motives for Tupac?s murder?the gang connection, the rap wars, the high-level conspiracies?and exposes the failed police investigation of the crime, which remains unsolved. This book is now in its second edition, having been fully revised and expanded. It also contains the only photo of Tupac's autopsy in print.

     Exit 2Pac Enter Makaveli
Publisher: SJD
Author(s): Anon N/A

Take a walk inside the mind of Tupac Amaru Shakur, as we decipher through the mind of a genius.

Loyal to the Game (released late 2004) Tupac clearly says "2005"

in the same album he says "Year 2000 B*TCH" clearly being the voice of Tupac.

"I heard rumors I died murdered in cold blood tramuatized, pictures of me in my final state you know mama cried but that was fiction, some coward got the story twisted like I no longer existed mysteriously missin', but I'm worldwide baby I aint hard to find..."



Tupac?s funeral was cancelled twice for unknown reasons; on top of that he was supposedly cremated with only a private ceremony. For some reason on his autopsy report it has him listed at 6?2 ? 215 lbs. His official original California ID lists him at 5?10 ? 165 lbs. In fact in many songs he mentions weighing 155 ? 165 lbs. Autopsy photo of him is clearly missing one of Tupac?s tattoos with his face pointed away from the camera completely and the Las Vegas Police Department denies there even being an autopsy photo. 2001 ? Until The End of Time ? ?Cremated Last Wishes Nigga Smoke My Ashes?
Prior to this Tupac always said he was gonna be buried, this is one of the only songs to my knowledge with him mentioning being cremated; which is what happened after 2 funerals were cancelled.


All the real facts in front of you, is Tupac still alive? You be the judge.

     Tupac Shakur: The Life and Times of an American Icon
Publisher: Da Capo Press
Author(s): Tayannah Lee McQuillar, Fred L. Johnson PhD

In 1996 Tupac Shakur, one of the most talented artists of his time, was murdered by an unknown gunman. Fred L. Johnson and Tayannah Lee McQuillar examine the theories surrounding his death and the story of Tupac?s lost legacy in this definitive biography.

For millions, Shakur gave voice to their stories, but there was also another side to him, revealed as his life spun out of control, as the whispered warnings from friends went unheeded and the denunciations of critics grew louder. Disturbingly, he sang and wrote about his impending death. When it came, it brought the music industry to its knees and ended an era when American rappers were leaders in using their art to speak the truth to corporate, government, and judicial power.

     Illegal Procedure: A Sports Agent Comes Clean on the Dirty Business of College Football
Publisher: Bloomsbury USA
Author(s): Josh Luchs, James Dale

For fifteen years, sports agent Josh Luchs made illegal deals with numerous college athletes, from top-tier, nationally recognized phenoms to late-round draft picks. Flagrantly flaunting NCAA and NFL Players Association rules, he made no-interest loans to players in exchange for the promise of representation on their lucrative pro contracts. After cleaning up his act in 2003, he moved to a new agency, only to be targeted and pushed out of the business for a new violation-one he arguably did not commit. Then, in October 2010, Luchs wrote a confessional article in Sports Illustrated, telling the truth about what he did and didn't do.


Since then he has taken on a new role: whistle-blowing, truth-telling reformer. And in telling his own story, Luchs pulls back the curtain on the real economy of college football: how agents win players legally and otherwise, the staggering sums colleges make from an unpaid workforce, the shortfalls of supposed full-ride scholarships, and the myth of a college education given to scholarship jocks. Including new information about major players and scandalized programs such as USC, Auburn, and Ohio State, this book pulls no punches. It's a stunning and necessary read for anyone who loves the game, and the first step toward fixing a broken system.


Praise for Josh Luchs' Sports Illustrated story:


"There are no innocents in all this-including Luchs. The difference now is Luchs isn't claiming to be innocent." -John Feinstein, Washington Post


"[Luchs pulls] the inner workings of an oily business out of the shadows."-Pat Forde, ESPN


"A must-read."-New York Times

     Tupac Shakur
Publisher: Three Rivers Press
Author(s): Vibe Magazine

"The tragedy of Tupac is that his untimely passing is representative of too many young black men in this country....If we had lost Oprah Winfrey at 25, we would have lost a relatively unknown, local market TV anchorwoman. If we had lost Malcolm X at 25, we would have lost a hustler nicknamed Detroit Red. And if I had left the world at 25, we would have lost a big-band trumpet player and aspiring composer--just a sliver of my eventual life potential."��������
����������������From the Foreword by Quincy Jones

The real story of Tupac's murder may not ever emerge.��This may be the only lasting testament to the many faces of Tupac Shakur--of a life lived fast and hard, of a man cloaked in contradictions.��A young man who was just starting to come into his own.

"I believe that everything you do bad comes back to you. So everything that I do that's bad, I'm going to suffer for it. But in my heart, I believe what I'm doing is right. So I feel like I'm going to heaven."
��������Tupac Shakur, June 1996

     Ruthless: A Memoir
Publisher: Gallery
Author(s): Jerry Heller

"PAYBACK'S A BITCH, JERRY."

The words scrawled crudely across Jerry Heller's bedroom mirror that afternoon meant the rap wars had suddenly escalated. In the battle of his life over the ragingly successful music label he had helped found, Ruthless Records, Heller had seen death threats, strong-arming, and beatings. Now the violence had come home when his enemies burglarized his house, jacked his Corvette, and left behind this sneering piece of graffito.

Heller didn't get mad; he got even. Ruthless tells the explosive story of Jerry Heller's alliance with Eric Wright, aka Eazy-E, one of the legends of rap music and a founding member of N.W.A., "the world's most dangerous band." As a longtime music industry superagent, Heller had the skill and insight necessary to guide N.W.A.'s cometlike rise to the top of the charts. Along the way there were raucous nationwide tours, out-of-control MTV pool parties, and X-rated business meetings. Heller held on through the brutal shocks and reversals of the Ruthless Records era, which saw the label being targeted by the FBI, and its principal artists locked in bitter conflict, until a final turnaround placed Ruthless at the top of the heap once more. Always in the middle of the whirlwind were Jerry and Eazy, an odd-couple pairing that represents one of the deepest and most appealing stories in American music.

You don't have to be an N.W.A. fan to love Ruthless. Heller turns the music industry inside out, exposing its strange logic and larger-than-life personalities. Ruthless provides keen insight into the popular music scene, with an unforgettable portrait of its rollicking excesses, life-churning drama, and multimillion-dollar highs.
