"I want [Tupac] to be able to retire." [01.24.08|03:15 pm]
[Eargasm |Big L. Featuring Fat Joe- The Enemy]

I found this interesting article on Tupac's sister, while I was looking for information on someone I'm about to interview today 5pm. It's from 2006, but its an interesting read.

Tupac's Sister Tells Her Story

When I was growing up my mother [Afeni Shakur] was going through depression. Her brain was cut off at a certain point, when I needed it. Her fighting times were when Tupac [Shakur] was being developed, between his birth and 13. All this stuff happened between Assata Shakur being broken out [of jail].

My father [Mutulu Shakur] is in jail for breaking Assata Shakur out of prison. This happened when I was 5.

"I'm bipolar. I battle with depression and suicide on a daily."

I've been hospitalized twice. After I left the hospital, I went through intensive therapy for three years, going to the therapist three times a week. I moved to Sausalito, California, where there was nothing but high class white people. They didn't even know who Tupac was. I really needed to separate myself from the black community and it was almost like I was in refuge there. I was able to build my spirit back.

When we moved back to Atlanta, where my family was, is when I was able to put all of my tools in play. So, just coming back home around black people, coming back to society and seeing the difference from how I was, before I went to the hospital, and how I am now and how I walk in my own faith and my own spirit. I'm not Afeni's daughter, or Tupac's sister, or Mutulu's daughter, I'm my own being and I'm powerful.

"When I was young me and my mama had beef
Seventeen years old kicked out on the streets
Though back at the time, I never thought I'd see her face
Ain't a woman alive that could take my mama's place
Suspended from school; and scared to go home, I was a fool
with the big boys, breakin all the rules
I shed tears with my baby sister"
- Lyrics from Dear Mama

Cheating on an ethics exam? It sounds like the setup for a joke. But a group of grad students at Columbia's journalism school are suspected of having done just that, according to a source at the institution.
