A star during his lifetime, a legend after a bullet killed him at the age of twenty-five, Tupac Shakur was the most influential rap musician of his day–and the most misunderstood. Far from being the insolent “gangsta” that the press put forth, Tupac was a committed and fearless visionary determined to make a difference not only on the music scene but in the black community at large. Darrin Bastfield grew up with Tupac in a rough Baltimore neighborhood, rapped with him, fought with him, and performed by his side. Now in this vivid, highly personal memoir featuring never-before-seen photos of the rap artist, Darrin shows the world what Tupac Shakur was really like as a teenager destined for greatness. In tight, edgy prose, Darrin follows Tupac through the seven years of their friendship. In Roland Park Middle School in the mid-1980s, rap was a kind of underground movement, and the kids with real talent always found each other. Tupac–new in town, a skinny thirteen-year old with shabby clothes and lopsided hair–may have looked uncool, but it soon became clear that he had the gift. When Tupac teamed up with Mouse, king of the beatbox, they blew the school away in their performance as the Eastside Crew. It was the first in a series of increasingly electrifying performances. When Tupac went to the Baltimore School for the Arts, then it really started to happen. A new group called Born Busy, unforgettable performances at the Beaux Arts Balls, an eye-opening backstage encounter with Salt-N-Pepa, their tight friendship with John, known among black kids as “the cool white boy,” a series of love affairs with adoring girls, the wild nights of the 1988 senior prom–Tupac and Darrin lived though it all together, and in this memoir Darrin makes it all come alive again. From the start, Darrin knew Tupac was a marked man, singled out by his charismatic gift. So it came as no surprise that Tupac made it big when rap went mainstream. What stunned Darrin was the violent turn Tupac’s life took once he relocated to L.A.–and how swiftly that violence engulfed and destroyed him. Vibrant, gritty, alive with the tension and spontaneity of rap music, this memoir of Tupac’s teenage years is a haunting portrait of one of the most important artists of our day.

Excerpt from Back in the Day 2: The College Years With the little strength he had, Thomas told us he wanted to go camping one last time. "Consider this my dying wish and honor it, please?" Later that night Thomas began to use the bucket more frequently than he had been. He said he had one last thing he wanted. He told Chris he wanted to sit on his lap and have Chris sing his favorite song to him. They looked into each other's eyes as Chris started to sing "I see trees of green, red roses too." We all knew what that song was. When Chris got to the part that says "They're really sayin' I love you," Thomas forced out the words to Chris. "I love you" and with that Thomas closed his eyes and drew his last breath. Thomas got everything he wanted in his final days and hours. We could see Chris just sitting there rocking Thomas' lifeless body. Reviews for Back in the Day: Anthony Larson Phoenix, AZ It is rare that a book speaks to me in the way this book did. It has been a long time since I was so taken by a book that i had to literally force myself to put it down in order to do things like sleep and eat. I had only gotten as far as the second paragraph when I first had the thought that this could just as well be my story. As it turns out I would have that thought more times than I could count. I am by no means easily moved to tears by something I am reading; however, this book moved me to tears a number of times. If only every teenager who sees his or her self as being "different" in any way could have parents like John and Sara Kendall this world would be a much better place. Jeff Milyard Arizona The excerpt from your book strikes home as a dear friend was beaten by both his mother and father after discovering a love letter from his boyfriend. While I tried to ease his pain that incident placed fear in my heart and I never did come out.

Back in the Day is a fast paced novel that takes place over the course of a few days. This is a funny, poignant, erotic look at a young girl's love for the wrong kind of boy--a boy she could never have; a boy no one wanted her with--and how their friendship has lasted over the years. They would take diversely different paths as adults, but their individual journeys were similar, in that each would look for love in all the wrong people, for all the wrong reasons. Decades would pass with few words between them, but tragedy would reunite them. While both are willing to risk their friendship for a last chance at happiness, in the turbulent days ahead they discover no one wants them together, after all these years. Choosing to live for their own sake, they pay a high price for their decision. Back in the Day is a story that will make the old, and not so old feel young again. It will make you laugh, make you cry, make you remember how good it felt, or how sad it felt to be hopelessly in love. This is more than a story of two friends who find each other. This is a story of hope, of dreams fulfilled.
