“Even off stage and away from the microphone, Tupac’s physical presence generated intense interest. Shawn Chapman, one of Tupac’s legions of lawyers spent a good deal of time with him and observed his effect on everyday people. Chapmen recalls the many times that Tupac “would have to make an appearance in the Criminal Courts Building,” waiting in hall with elderly white jurors. “They had no idea who he was,” “But within minutes he’ have everybody just eating out of his hands, just being so funny and polite. These white jurors were loving him… . He really had that effect.”
