It’s like if you try and plant something in the concrete..if it grows and the rose pedals got all kind of scratches and marks, your not gonna say ‘Damn look at all the scratches on the rose that grew from the concrete’. Your gonna say..Damn! A rose grew from the concrete? Well that’s the same thing with me.. Folks should be sayin’ ‘Damn! he grew out of all that?.. That’s what they should see.
Everybody knows the Thug Life
Tupac, and we know that well. But they don’t know the Tupac in the
quiet moments. Like that picture of him tying his bandana over his head,
the profile shot. That’s an outtake. He was fixing his bandana with a
cigarette in his mouth but he was relaxed enough around me where I could
just photograph him. - Chi Modu
Did you hear about the rose that grew from a crack in the concrete? Proving nature’s law is wrong it learned to walk with out having feet. Funny it seems, but by keeping its dreams, it learned to breathe fresh air. Long live the rose that grew from concrete when no one else ever cared.
