2Pac's "Shakurspeare" Album??

As jacked from thetruthishere.com...

The first recordings from rap legend Tupac Shakur will be released this fall, commemorating the 13th anniversary of his death.

Born Busy Records’ CEO, Darrin Keith Bastfield, was one of the first people to work with Tupac and will be spearheading the release. The CD, titled Shakurspeare, will drop on September 13th, featuring material recorded before his days with Digital Underground. Bastfield started the group Born Busy when Shakur was just 16-years-old. Songs on the record will be from Tupac’s earliest days in the rap game when he was known by his first rap name, MC New York.

Bastfield discussed the project saying, quote, “I want people to hear Tupac as a young artist in his very first recordings ever, having fun, rapping about issues that concerned us, and most importantly giving a cautionary and timely ‘Message of Peace’ in his own voice as if he was already a big rap star with a reputation to uphold.”

Bastfield says the title Shakuspeare is inspired by a conversation he had with Tupac in which the rapper said he had dreams of becoming a renowned Shakespearean actor.

Shakuspeare is not Bastfield’s first Tupac-inspired work. He released the book “Back in the Day: My Life and Times with Tupac Shakur” in 2002.

....its gonna be like some old-skool 'Pac....I'mma check it just based on the content that I'm expecting. Like more of the "rebel-revolutionary-poetry" side of 2Pac.
