Leila Steinberg, the first manager of Tupac Shakur, has shared some never before released hand-written poetry from Tupac when he was 17-years old. The poems, “Things That Make Hearts Break,” “Cupid’s Smile II” and “A Love Unspoken” were published via Citizens of Humanity and offer an early glimpse into the mind of one of Hip-Hop’s most beloved icons. Underneath the rapping, acting and Thug Life exterior, these are intimate reminders that, first and foremost, Pac was poet.
