Tupac Shakur

Before his shocking death in 1996, Tupac spent much of the '90s achieving career heights, as well as getting into and out of hospitals and jail cells. In 1995, after serving a couple of short sentences for assault, he released "Dear Mama," the leading single and most successful song off his seminal work, Me Against the World.

'Pac was put away again before the full album dropped, though this time for molestation charges stemming from an alleged sexual assault, but when it did, it debuted at the top slot on the Billboard charts and 'Pac became the first artist to have a No. 1 album while in prison.
