On this day in 2015, the official opening of the Grammy Museum’s “All Eyez on Me: The Writings of Tupac Shakur”, an exhibit that focuses on the musical career of Shakur as a solo artist, and his work with Digital Underground.

Grammy Museum Executive Director Robert Santelli gave this statement on the exhibit:

“Tupac Shakur was one of the most original and important of all hip hop artists. His writings are both powerful and provocative. It is an honor to be the first music museum to acknowledge Tupac’s legacy and to bring context to what was an incredible career.”

The exhibit is set to feature handwritten notes, lyrics, poems, interviews and performance footage, as well as outfits worn by Tupac. All items in the display have been provided by the Tupac Shakur estate, which is overseen by Shakur’s mother, Afeni Shakur.

Some of the other items of interest to make an appearance will be:

  • The Versace suit Shakur wore to the 1996 Grammy Awards ceremony.
  • The tape box and studio notes from the first recording session that Shakur did after his release from prison.
  • Performance footage, which can be heard with headphones and displayed on a small screen for an individual experience.
  • Never before seen family photographs
  • A screenplay Shakur had written in 1992 titled, 32 Bottles to Heaven as well as a screenplay written while in jail titled, Live 2 Tell. 
  • The exhibit is scheduled to run from February 2nd to April 22nd at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles.
