To celebrate the life of hip hop legend Tupac Shakur, who died 17 years ago yesterday, the video for the ultra positive “Keep Ya Head Up” is from the 1992 release Strictly 4 My N.I.G.G.A.Z. While the critically acclaimed album was a hit, 2Pac was no stranger to controversy. We here at NHWWW tend to focus on the bright side and make sure the good always overshadows the bad.
