In the $3 billion dollar industry of hip-hop music, no one has touched as many lives with a microphone as Tupac Shakur. In this never-before-seen footage, see Tupac at seventeen, a young man at the edge of his destiny, speaking out about injustice on the streets of Oakland. See him at the shooting range, at home and at the highs and lows of his career. "Thug Angel" explores Tupac, the soldier, whose work was deeply formed by his black panther heritage. Tupac, the artist and entertainer, perhaps the most prolific writer in hip-hop to ever pick up a pen, The Literary. The Ambassador. The Thug. And The Statistic, who was killed before he realized his true potential. He has become the first black mythical icon... Directed by Academy Award nominee Peter Spirer (Rhyme & Reason) and produced by Tupac's close friends. See Tupas as the people closest to him knew him. See him as "Thug Angel".
