Tupac Shakur wasn’t one to go by a moniker in his professional life, instead, he took great pride in his name. The Poetic Justice star was named after a revolutionary, something his mother was intentional about. Ironically, she listed a different name on his birth certificate before changing it shortly after he was born.
