[center][size=5]Tupac Shakur: Before I Wake...
[/size][left]If you want to see a really good conspiracy movie you don't have to go to the theaters, just rent this dvd. The mystery surrounding rapper Tupac's murder has been the talk in the entertainment industry for years. In the doc it gives you a first-person perspective of the last days of Tupac by his main personal body guard. Who was a witness to the rapper being gun down in his car. The bodyguard tells his point of view on everything that he witnessed and to events that lead after Tupacs death.
Investigators and reporters also chim in on their views of what happen including rumors of who was/wasn't involved in the shooting. This doc really caught my interest and even though I don't really listen to rap music in general or know anything musically about Tupac I was glued to my screen from start to finish.
