The masses of rap fans who have and will continue to follow the life of Tupac Shakur know all to well that there are many documents currently marked confidential which believe should become a part of US history as public records.
Georgia State Representative Cynthia McKinney has introduced a bill before the United States Congress that would require the National Archives to establish a “Tupac Amaru Shakur Records Collection.”
Modeled after the famed “John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act,” McKinney’s newly-introduced bill would allow public access to privileged details of hip-hop cultures late rap icon’s life and death.
Congresswoman McKinney, the Democratic representative of the 4th District of DeKalb County, Georgia, based her “Tupac Shakur Records Collection Act” on the premise that "all government records related to the life and death of Tupac Amaru Shakur should be preserved for historical and governmental purposes."
This bill has got much attention among, not just among those in the hip-hop culture and among the fans of the late rap icon Tupac Shakur but also among a lot of the nation.
Since Congresswoman McKinney is one of the most accessible government officials I have ever had the pleasure to communicate with, we wanted to ask her the questions that many were emailing us regarding this bill and to find out more on how the process works. With all her other duties we thank her for her time and very much appreciate her insight.
