What a great selection of historical moments in music history. Here is Tupac in prison while being number one in the charts:
1995. Tupac releases his most sensitive record, Me Against the World. Subsequently he becomes the first artist to have a record reach number one on the charts while serving a prison sentence. Also, he wrote a screenplay and got married while imprisoned.
