History and memories come in many facets. Most are familiar with the music and music videos of hip-hop cultures late rap icon Tupac Shakur. Titles like ‘2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted’, ‘How Do You Want It’, and the most famous ‘diss’ song ever ‘Hit Em Up’, were made into videos and are enjoyed today as much as when they first came out nearly 10 years ago.

Behind those videos and behind Tupac you can find many people that Tupac touched and interacted with as business associates, friends and family.

Gobi is one of those people lucky enough to have called Tupac his business partner and friend. Gobi directed many of the Tupac videos we enjoy today.

Gobi has just released a book of images and words about his business partner and friend Tupac Shakur called ‘Thru My Eyes’ (Atria / Simon & Schuster).

Thru the eyes and thanks to the lens of Gobi we will be seeing for the first time many new pictures of Tupac Shakur, from an observation point we have never been able to see from before. We will read Gobi’s commentary on his friend Tupac Shakur, words about the rap icon from someone who actually knew and loved the man.

You may already own a photo or two of Gobi’s if you have bought the recently released ‘The Rose Vol.2’ album. Gobi provided the front and rear covers.

Afeni Shakur Davis wrote the very moving forward for Gobi’s book. In the forward she says “This book is Gobi’s way of honoring my son and sharing his experience. I thank you Gobi, for being my son’s friend.”

It is amazing that every time we speak to a person who’s path in life was fortunate enough to cross the path of the late rap icon Tupac Shakur, the impression that Tupac made on them still resonates in their daily walk; even today 9 years after his passing.

Gobi talks to ThugLifeArmy.com about his memories of his friendship with Tupac, with Tupac’s mother, Afeni Shakur Davis, and how he met and grew to love Tupac and how that feeling was and is shared between them even today.

Gobi’s book Thru My Eyes is available now and you can see a online promotional video on the book featuring Gobi by clicking  HERE. (QuickTime format)

Part of the proceeds from the sales of this book will go to the Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation (TASF). Please visit their web site HERE to learn more ways you can interact and help in the Foundations Projects.

We would like to thank Gobi for his time and for his fascinating insight into a period of his life that he holds very dear; the time he spent with his friend Tupac Shakur.

ThugLifeArmy – Thank you for taking time to speak with us. It is much appreciated.

Gobi – It’s a pleasure.

ThugLifeArmy – Your name Gobi is very unique. What is your nationality?

Gobi – I was born in England, to a half English-half Iranian mother and I have a long Middle Eastern name. And my half Catholic half Jewish grandmother didn’t like my long m
