Tupac Shakur's handwritten teenage poems have been seen for the first time thanks to his old mentor and manager.
Leila Steinberg, who first met Tupac when he attended her writing workshop in Oakland, gave the poems to magazine Citizens of Humanity. According to Steinberg, the poems were written over a three-year period, starting when Tupac was just 17 years old. In characteristically heartfelt fashion, the iconic artist writes about love, loss and loneliness.
