Added DiffLines:

* OlderThanTheyThink: His "appearance" at Coachella in 2012 was cited as the first time a dead artist was able to perform with currently living musicians via holographic projection. [[HidetoMatsumoto hide]] from Music/XJapan had him beat by [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fT1KeAd_bqU four years]] (check the 2:20 mark onward), unless you count Natalie Cole playing along to a video of [[Music/NatKingCole her late father]], in which case, Tupac and hide were both beaten out from this claim by twenty and sixteen years, respectively.

* ExecutiveMeddling: A vast majority of the planned tracks for Thug Life were unreleased because the record company thought they were too controversial. Some of them have been released posthumously.



* HesJustHiding: Many Tupac fans feel that Tupac is still alive and he is hiding somewhere outside of America.

Added DiffLines:

* CrowningMomentOfFunny: His duet with Ice-T singing "You Don't Bring Me Flowers". Pac's embarrassed attempts at trying not to crack up laughing were the icing on the cake.

* MiscarriageOfJustice: His conviction of sexual assault. The case was bogus but somehow Tupac managed to land himself in prison for one-and-a-half to four-and-a-half years for 'unwanted touching of a woman's buttocks'. The judge essentially claimed that he was some kind of monster for doing so.

to:

* WhatAnIdiot: Confessed on Yo! MTV Raps to beating up the Hughes brothers. Keep in mind that when he assaulted them there were absolutely no witnesses to the crime, so without 2Pac's confession he probably would have walked. With the confession, not only was he convicted and sentenced to 18 days in jail, but the prosecutors made a big deal about how he showed absolutely no remorse for committing the crime and in fact went on television to brag about it.

* BrokenBase: Fans often argue over what album showcases the ''[[AlternateCharacterInterpretation real]]'' Tupac. The albums in question are ''Me Against the World'' VS ''All Eyez on Me''. Proponents of the former claim that the album is better than AEOM because of its depth and dark, introspective approach, while claiming that AEOM is just a typical mainstream rap album people jumped on the bandwagon for. Conversely, fans of the latter argue that Tupac works with a much wider range of topics in AEOM than in MATW, living it up on a few songs while exploring more serious topics in others.

* UncannyValley: Dr. Dre & Snoop Dog brought a Pac hologram with them when they headlined Coachella in 2012. It just ''barely'' looked like a projection, and that was if you were sober and watching on a computer. Naturally, something so unnerving had to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TGbrFmPBV0Y open with Pac's creepiest song]].
