Gobi, hip-hop and rap video director and friend of the late rap icon Tupac Shakur released his book entitled ‘Thru My Eyes’ Thoughts on Tupac Shakur in Pictures and Words (Atria / Simon & Schuster) and the reception from the fans has been good.

The book contains many before unseen photos of the late rap icon, Tupac Shakur (2Pac); in many natural poses. Being around Tupac with a camera, Gobi was afforded the opportunity to ‘record’ the man Tupac for the world and now thru his book he is sharing his memories of Tupac thru his photos and comments.

This is a book that every fan of the late rap icon Tupac Shakur (2Pac) must have. The forward to the book was written by Afeni Shakur Davis and she says in that forward “This book is Gobi’s way of honoring my son and sharing his experience. I thank you Gobi, for being my son’s friend.”

Gobi has just releases a new ‘trailer’ for the book. See it HERE in QuickTime.

Gobi will be working on the ‘Live to Tell’ project, the only film script ever written by the late rap star Tupac "2Pac" Shakur; that is slated to come to the big screen in 2006.

Gobi also has the front and rear covers of the recently released The Rose Vol. 2 album. Release on September 20th, 2005, a number of hip-hop, rap and R&B's top artists took a brand new approach to using Tupac Shakur's poetry in song, paying tribute to the late rapper in his own words on "The Rose, Vol. 2 - Music Inspired by Tupac's Poetry."

So you can see that Gobi’s work is dedicated to the legacy of Tupac Shakur (2Pac). Part of the proceeds from the book ‘Thru My Eyes’ Thoughts on Tupac Shakur in Pictures and Words, will go to the Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation (TASF), for the Tupac Amaru Shakur Center for the Arts, in Stone Mountain Georgia.
