A 2Pac Tribute: Dare 2 Struggle is a posthumously released tribute album dedicated to the late hip hop icon, Tupac Shakur.
Dr. Mutulu Shakur (Tupac's nonbiological father) released the tribute album to commemorate Tupac's 35th birthday and 10 year passing anniversary. The album features contributions from rappers behind bars as well as those on the outside, including Mutulu Shakur's children Mopreme Shakur and Nzingha, as well as Outlawz, TQ, Slick, Imaan Faith and T-Jay. It was originally conceived before Tupac's 1996 murder, when he and Mopreme visited their father in prison and wrote the "Thug Code" to try to decrease gang violence.
Dare 2 Struggle includes a 16-page booklet that includes the "Thug Code" as well as a preview chapter of Shakur's historical novel about Tupac titled N 2 Da Gutter.
Mutulu Shakur is the executive producer of the album along with Canadian hip-hop activist Raoul Juneja (a.k.a. Deejay Ra). It's being released through Kent Entertainment's First Kut rap imprint in association with Juneja's Toronto-based Lyrical Knockout Entertainment company.
Half of the proceeds from the record's sales will go towards Shakur's inner city health and education initiative.
