Washington, Sept 14 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Fifteen years after his death, the first ever entire collection of Tupac Shakur has been announced by the Atlanta University Center.

Tupac was shot and killed in 1996 after watching a boxing match involving Mike Tyson. His death shocked many of his fans. On his way out of the fight, Tupac was captured on the security camera at the hotel fighting with a fan.
The singer started serving his prison sentence in February 1995 at the Clinton Correctional Facility in New York after being convicted on rape charges in 1994. After serving some months, the CEO of Death Row Records, Marion “Suge” Knight secured a bail for the singer.
