Rapper Tupac Shakur named his publishing company after a terminally ill boy

Rapper Tupac Shakur was not known for being a warm and fuzzy guy. Like many rappers, he presented a tough exterior and often wrote angry lyrics. And everyone knows the tragedy of his death—he was violently shot. However, behind Shakur’s grizzled reputation was a caring man.

At least we can assume that from Shakur’s interactions with a young boy named Joshua. In 1993, Shakur received a letter from Joshua’s parents. It explained that Joshua was terminally ill. .

Joshua’s dying wish was to meet Shakur, and his parents asked if Shakur could make this dream come true. Shakur flew to Maryland to meet Joshua and grant this wish. Sadly, Joshua died soon after. After his death, Shakur changed the name of his publishing company from Ghetto Gospel Music to Joshua’s Dream.
