Born in [[New York City]], Tupac frequently found his family changing place of residence. In [[1988]], his family moved to [[California]], where he would reside for the rest of his life. In 1990, he was hired as a backup dancer for the [[alternative hip hop|alternative rap]] group [[Digital Underground]]. Tupac's debut album, ''[[2Pacalypse Now]]'', gained critical recognition and backlash for its controversial lyrics. Shakur became the target of various lawsuits, and experienced legal troubles. Most notably, he was convicted of sexually assaulting a woman in 1993 (although he vigorously denied the claims). The day before the guilty verdict was issued, Shakur was shot five times in a recording studio lobby in Manhattan, wounding him. Following the incident, Shakur grew suspicious that other figures in the rap industry had prior knowledge of shooting and did not warn him; the controversy would help spark the later [[East Coast-West Coast hip hop rivalry|East Coast-West Coast]] feud. After serving eleven months of his sentence, Shakur was released from prison on bail by [[Suge Knight|Marion "Suge" Knight]], the [[Chief executive officer|CEO]] of [[Death Row Records]]. In exchange, Shakur would release three records under the label, with his fifth album, the double-disc ''[[All Eyez on Me]]'' counting as two albums. On [[September 7]], [[1996]], Tupac was shot four times in a [[drive-by shooting]] in [[Las Vegas]], [[Nevada]]. On [[September 13]], [[1996]], six days after the shooting, Tupac died of respiratory failure and [[cardiac arrest]] at [[University Medical Center, Las Vegas]].
