Darrin Keith Bastfield: Although rap was Tupac’s true love, the variety of music he listened to was amazing. A page from Back in the Day My Life and Times with Tupac Shakur shows photos of the author with Tupac and other friends. This became clear to me one Saturday morning when he, Richard, and I sat around the living room of the apartment in our boxer shorts and undershirts talking about music. In this Saturday morning discussion, Tupac floated along with Richard easily, unmoved by any of his older roommates’ detours in various directions that were completely unfamiliar to me.

Darrin Bastfield grew up with him in a rough Baltimore neighborhood. In tight, edgy prose, Bastfield recalls seven years of friendship

Darrin Bastfield grew up with him in a rough Baltimore neighborhood. Shakur, new in town, a skinny thirteen-year-old in shabby clothes, may have looked uncool, but he blew the school away at a talent show, an electrifying performance. It was at the Baltimore School for the Arts, however, where things really started to happen-an encounter with Salt-N-Pepa, the wild night of the 1988 senior prom.

A star during his lifetime, a legend after a bullet killed him at the age of twenty-five, Tupac Shakur was the most influential rap musician of his day–and the most misunderstood. Far from being the insolent “gangsta” that the press put forth, Tupac was a committed and fearless visionary determined to make a difference not only on the music scene but in the black community at large. Darrin Bastfield grew up with Tupac in a rough Baltimore neighborhood, rapped with him, fought with him, and performed by his side. Now in this vivid, highly personal memoir featuring never-before-seen photos of the rap artist, Darrin shows the world what Tupac Shakur was really like as a teenager destined for greatness.In tight, edgy prose, Darrin follows Tupac through the seven years of their friendship. In Roland Park Middle School in the mid-1980s, rap was a kind of underground movement, and the kids with real talent always found each other. Tupac–new in town, a skinny thirteen-year old with shabby clothes and lopsided hair–may have looked uncool, but it soon became clear that he had the gift. When Tupac teamed up with Mouse, king of the beatbox, they blew the school away in their performance as the Eastside Crew. It was the first in a series of increasingly electrifying performances.When Tupac went to the Baltimore School for the Arts, then it really started to happen. A new group called Born Busy, unforgettable performances at the Beaux Arts Balls, an eye-opening backstage encounter with Salt-N-Pepa, their tight friendship with John, known among black kids as “the cool white boy,” a series of love affairs with adoring girls, the wild nights of the 1988 senior prom–Tupac and Darrin lived though it all together, and in this memoir Darrin makes it all come alive again. From the start, Darrin knew Tupac was a marked man, singled out by his charismatic gift. So it came as no surprise that Tupac made it big when rap went mainstream. What stunned Darrin was the violent turn Tupac’s life took once he relocated to L.A.–and how swiftly that violence engulfed and destroyed him. Vibrant, gritty, alive with the tension and spontaneity of rap music, this memoir of Tupac’s teenage years is a haunting portrait of one of the most important artists of our day.

This book really fills a giant void in the literature that's out there on 2pac. I am grateful to the author for writing this. If you really want to understand what made 2pac the great man he became, you need to read this book.

This book takes you inside his boyhood home, into a house where there are no secrets. Where one can express oneself freely and is free to chase their dreams. To a teenager who lived his life running the streets, was sent out to by weed for his own mother, was actively engaged in community activism and awareness, and had to bury and organize funerals for his young friends. He was adored by students and teachers and all type of people within the community, yet it didn't come easy as he was an impoverished outsider. He often received hatred from others for no apparent reason, before winning them over.

He was also dedicated to his craft and definitely fulfills the theory that if you want to be great at something you must practice, practice, practice. Stars are not created over-night. Some excellent anecdotes in this one about him nearly auditioning for Salt-n-Pepa at a concert, of him challenging Kid-n-Play to a battle, and him getting revenge on an industry insider that dissed him. All of which are stories formerly unknown as they happened well before he was famous.

Great read, and the author is a very talented writer and talented person in his own right. I think 2pac learned a lot from their friendship as well.

Tupac is widely considered a complex character. The Tupac I was always interested in learning more about is the poetic Pac that loved Shakespeare. This book provides an excellent accounting of Tupac's two year stint in Baltimore. It was disheartening to read about how poor Tupac was at this time. However, the stories of Tupac's early rap performances and ladykilling ways were entertaining. It's interesting that Darrin and Pac did not start out as friends but became friends after Darrin had proven himself to be loyal when he had Pac's back during an altercation. I highly recommend this book to any major Tupac fan.

It was a good read. I like anything to do with Tupac. This book is based on before he turned rapper.
Daiktilar
This book was the memories of a young man who knew 2pac before he became famous. This makes for very good reading.
Darkraven
the book is easy to read and the writer gets your attention with its flow. i found out many new information about Tupac's that period of life, that helped me realise lots of things.

Waste of my time to read

Didn't finish reading this book, cause it started out with it being a kid from the same school and how he didn't like tupac, and how he used to think this and think that of him, and why would I want to hear the negative about the man. I don't, and I see it as someone who didnt like him and got money from a book that he doesn't deserve. Don't buy it...
Back In The Day: My Life and Times with Tupac Sharuk

Tupac was the greatest rapper/actor in history. But to get to the top he had to go through struggles in his childhoods. Thats why the theme of the story

Back in the in the Day: My Life and Times with Tupac Sharuk is to follow your dreams no matter what you had to go through and dont't stop unless

you have to. Tupac also teaches us to use our talents to enjoy our life. Darrin Bastfeild , the author of the book , go with Tupac adventures during his

high school years.So let talk about more of the theme.

Tupac actions of the theme was letting no one stop him from his talents. Every day he would wake up, go to school, come home or go to his freind house

and write raps, sleep then repeat the process all over. But one thing Tupac and the author always endured was both of them was poor although Darrin had

had a little more money then Tupac. So Tupac would borrow clothes from his friends or kids from the school bring him clothes. Any chances Tupac had to

to get a break he takes. For example Tupac and his friends almost had a break into Hollywood but the seruity guard caught them and the manager of Salt n' Pepa

reject them saying he had to cacth a plane. No matter how much he was rejected Tupac still had a break.

Tupac also shows the theme by the words out his mouth. One thing Darrin points out is that Tupac said he was little was that he wanted to be a revolvutionary

when he grows up. That shows Tupac known what he wanted to be which he did but did it in a different style such as a rapper and an actor.He always told

everyone what he wanted to be and he showed it. Like one of the Tupac wrote when he was growing up "We Work Hard" was what he did .He spoke out for

people like him while he and his mom was with the Black Panther movemment about the voilence in his nieghberhood. So not only did Tupac rap but he was also a

worker for peace.

Yes this theme is true because I had my own taste of bad karma. When I was born I had a blood infection so I stay in the hospital for fifthteen days. Around two

years old I had lead poisoning, which I miricaly survive and had to get surgery on on my ankle. At five my sodium level was to high. and only last year did I nearly

passed out because of my heart membrace I got when I was born. Still I'm smart, got accepted to a good school and go there and play an insturment in band.That

proves that the past can not predict your furture.

In the end Tupac achieved his goals. He starred in movies such as A Raisin in the Sun and made smash hits like Califoria Love. He had the world knowing what

his name was and rocking to his beat espcially in the black nieghberhoods of America. He known people like Biggy Smalls and Mary J. Bligh. Darrin almost went on

a tour with Tupac realized they had lives of there their own and went their seperate ways. Tupac shows just we can anything we want to as long as we set are minds

to it. But sadly, he was shot and died seven days later.
