9. The controversy surrounding Tupac's song lyrics.
Tupac often wrote lyrics about issues including racism, police brutality, poverty and politics. His album '2Pacalypse Now' was one of his most political works and a defining moment in his career came as a result of it when it was claimed the album influenced a youth in Texas to shoot a state trooper. Then US Vice President Dan Quayle publicly criticised Tupac at the time, saying: "There's no reason for a record like this to be released. It has no place in our society."
