History and memories come in many facets. Most are familiar with the music and music videos of hip-hop cultures late rap icon Tupac Shakur. Titles like ‘2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted’, ‘How Do You Want It’, and the most famous gangsta rap ‘diss’ song ever ‘Hit Em Up’, were made into videos and are enjoyed today as much as when they first came out nearly 10 years ago.

Behind those hip-hop and rap videos and behind the rap artist, actor, poet, and activist Tupac Shakur, you can find many people that Tupac touched and interacted with as business associates, friends and family.

Gobi is one of those people lucky enough to have called Tupac his business partner and friend. Gobi directed many of the Tupac videos we enjoy today.

Gobi has just released a book of images and words about his business partner and friend Tupac Shakur called ‘Thru My Eyes’ (Atria / Simon & Schuster).

Thru the eyes and thanks to the lens of Gobi we will be seeing for the first time many new pictures of Tupac Shakur, from an observation point we have never been able to see from before. We will read Gobi’s commentary on his friend Tupac Shakur, words about the rap icon from someone who actually knew and loved the man.

You may already own a photo or two of Gobi’s if you have bought the recently released ‘The Rose Vol.2’ album. Gobi provided the front and rear covers.

Afeni Shakur Davis wrote the very moving forward for Gobi’s book. In the forward she says “This book is Gobi’s way of honoring my son and sharing his experience. I thank you Gobi, for being my son’s friend.”
