"The last chronologically of this triptych is “Dying To Live.” Tupac had jeweler make an angel of death medallion, and the first time that he wore it was the night of his death. So this piece represents the birth of a legend. Dying as a man and being reborn as a legend. A lot of his songs predict his death. It was the same thing with Basquait. After Warhol passed he would get really morbid and would start writing these short phrases like “Man dies” with a peace sign over and over again. So Pac died in a BMW and I kinda saw that sign and the way that the logo was it presented a cross right where he passed away. There are also 2 more tattoos in this one, on his back Pac has Exodus, or exit, and 1831 which was for Nat Turner." - Naturel
