Arguably the best hip-hop lyricist of all time, the late and legendary Tupac Shakur was born to Afeni Shakur and Billy Garland, who were both active members of the Black Panther Party in its prime.  Afeni was charged with multiple felonies during the late ‘60s for allegedly conspiring to bomb public places in New York.  All of the charges were later dropped.
