Today is the day that one of Hip-Hop legends tragically fell to gun violence. Seventeen years ago on September 13, 1996, we lost a legend named Tupac Shakur. Throughout his career, the MC had done some memorable interviews. This polarizing personality was more than just a thug but an artist who was generally misunderstood. His interviews showed his intelligence. He left gems of knowledge on history, race, poverty and a number of other topics that are still powerful to this day. To honor him, XXL has compiled a list of 16 of his best interviews.
