Rock and Rollsary--Tupac Shakur


Made by What the Rock?!, these rosaries pay homage to rock and roll stars both living and dead. Pray to the gods and goddesses of rock! Each rosary has the traditional 59 beads and can be used to pray. They are one of a kind and handmade. They can also be worn as a necklace, or hung as a decoration in your home or in the car. And sometimes they feature rap/hip hop stars instead of rock stars. This one features beloved poet/rapper Tupac Shakur. He is consistently ranked as one of the greatest rappers ever, as well as one of the most influential rappers of all time. The themes of most of Shakur's songs revolved around the violence and hardship in inner cities, racism and other social problems. Both of his parents and several other people in his family were members of the Black Panther Party, whose ideals were reflected in his songs.

During the latter part of his career, Shakur was a vocal participant during the East Coast–West Coast hip hop rivalry, becoming involved in conflicts with other rappers, producers, and record-label staff members, most notably The Notorious B.I.G. and the label Bad Boy Records.

On September 7, 1996, Shakur was fatally shot in a drive-by shooting at the intersection of Flamingo Road and Koval Lane in Las Vegas, Nevada. He was taken to the University Medical Center of Southern Nevada, where he died six days later. He was 25 years old.

This rosary is made with crystal AB coated 6mm faceted glass beads, gold chain, and a smll brass skull and microphone are layered on top of a traditional gold cross. *****Please note...this rosary is smaller than most of the other rosaries listed... it is 22" in length, and not 27". It fits over my head, but I have a small head. It may not fit over your head to wear it like a necklace. (measure your head circumfrence to see if it'll fit) PM me if you want me to add a clasp on the back to wear as jewlery. It is still a cool ass rosary paying homage to a rap star who died way too young, though. This would be a great gift for any Tupac fan.
