WAS VAN GOGH EAST COAST OR WEST COAST? WEST COAST, MOS’ DEF’!

It’s a dedication from Tupac to Vincent van Gogh. Tupac felt very close to him. Here is a little quote from Tupac telling why he felt close to him:

“Because nobody appreciated his work until he was dead. Now it’s worth millions. I feel close to him, how tormented he was. Marvin too. That’s how I was out there. I’m in jail now, but I’m free. My mind is free. The only time I have problems is when I sleep.”

Starry Night Dedicated in Memory of Vincent van Gogh

A creative heart, obsessed with satisfying
This dormant and uncaring society
u have given them the stars at night
and u have given them Bountiful Bouquets of Sunflowers
But 4 u there is only contempt
and though u pour yourself into that fame
and present it so proudly
this world could not accept your masterpieces
from the heart

So on that starry night
u gave 2 us and
u took away from us
the one thing we never acknowledged
your life

– Tupac Shakur
