Tupac Shakur's legacy lives on through the political, social, and spiritual consciousness of underground Hip Hop MCee Marc Shyst. Marc Shyst's short lists of influences include God, Malcolm X, and Hip Hop Icon and 2nd highest grossing Rap artist of all time Tupac Shakur. 

Since Tupac's untimely demise, there has been an absence of inspirational, social, cultural, spiritual, and social Hip-Hop to cross the airwaves. Parallel to Tupac, Marc Shyst has made it his mission to restore balance to hip hop in the footsteps of an artist who addressed so many facets and elements of the African American Experience.
