Comment on the Height of Tupac Shakur

Rob, if Tupac's bodyguard said that he was 5'7 and even his mother once said he was small, doesn't that make you think he was at most 5'9 flat? Also, he liked to wear boots a lot to make himself look taller
Editor Rob: he can look taller than 5ft 7, I looked at the bodyguard and tupac in what little photos I could see and he didn't look more than a couple of inches smaller.

Tupac's mugshot had him at 5'11 and the coroner's had him at 6'0 at the time of his death. Yet, you can always rely on this site to dismiss evidence and put whatever number they feel. I guess the idiots on this site will say he was wearing lifts in prison when he was measured at 5'11 smh lmao."

Isn't one measured (and fingerprinted and all that) in the station? Before being transferred? If so, this would mean he was most likely measured in his own footwear and very well could have been wearing lifts. That leaves the autopsy results which usually adds to a person's height due to the science with spinal elongation and all. The case of George Washington comes to mind; usually described as being 6'2, he was measured at something like 6'3.5 upon the coroner's table

TUPAC WAS TALLER THAN QUEEN LATIFAH . YET ROB HAS HER TALLER? WHY?
Rez said on 19/Jan/16
Why does his former bodyguard state that he was 5'7 (and 160 pounds) here? Click Here

Also anyone know Tabitha Soren's height? They're together here Click Here and here Click Here

Rob, thoughts?
Editor Rob: I think he's exagarrating the difference, I'm not sure he looks 4 inches taller than tupac....she looks a couple of inches smaller, without knowing what her shoes are.
Deff said on 17/Jan/16
This is a good listing, he wasn't 5'11 or anything close. Look up pics of him and Mike Tyson (diff angles) and you can see some height difference. Mike Tyson is like 5'10

I don't care how tall Tupac was, his stature in the rap industry was head and shoulders above the rest!

Rob plz add this:
What I meant to say was I don't think Pac was really being himself as to say someone like Kendrick Lamar.
Also i meant to say he was noticably shorter than Dwayne Martin in ABOVE THE RIM. By all means Pac was a King. Kings have flaws too. Pac was a poet as well as a revolutionist. I think he was getting to the revolution part before he died but was stuck between boulders. I don't want to try and estimate his height because he was a great man and deserves to be classified amongst the legends.

Two of Tupacs body guards, his mother, and a number of other sources refer to him as a small guy. In an interview with Katie Couric he refers to Mike Tyson as a big guy and him a little guy. Mikes only 5'10. Anyway I can't help but believe the autoposy release is just to respect the integrity of the height listed on Pacs driver license along with the additional decompression of a dead body corspe. Pac says he 5'10 the coroner says w'ell gv him an xtra 2 to keep in line. Pac was a monumental figure with a napoleon complex. He was noticably shorter than Dwayne Martin in Juice and I'm sure Dwayne's no more than 5'10. Plus its hard for me to imagine Pac being Fabulous height. He probably wore tims with a two inch lift to look his body guards height. I never thought Pac was real. He was a firecracker with a good heart never a drug dealer, shoot em up type guy like he tried to portray. He was really sad to me.

Rob don't you think this is a little too short for Tupac, I mean he certainly doesn't look 5ft11 or 6ft but do you think 5ft9.75-5ft10 would be more reasonable for him?
[Editor Rob: you can argue that he looks 5ft 9.5-9.75 at times.]

Click Here with 5'11 Wyclef (listed 5'10.75" on here)

Wyclef has the camera advantage but looks about an inch taller without it.

I think Tupac is 5'10, depending on footwear/sleep and who stands next to, could look closer to 5'8 or closer to 5'11.

His driver's license says 5'10 and the mugshot says 5'11 so he most likely claimed 5'10/11.

I heard he took a nap at the hotel before getting shot in Vegas so maybe he stretched out and had thick shoes, making his autopsy report 6'0".

Final answer: 5'10
james said on 7/Sep/15
He looked pretty tall in Poetic Justice next to his short co stars 5'8 Joe Torry 5'5 Janet Jackson and 5'5 Regina King ..plus he was slender. I'd say 5'10.5 with shoes on

Dr. Eazy said on 20/Jul/15
No no no tupac shakur was 6'0 and 168 lbs tall but in his mugshot he was 5'11 and 154 lbs however he was young then so he might have grown but when they found his dead body he was 5'9
bobbyh3342 said on 19/Jul/15
rob needs an upgrade to 510 or atleast 5 9.75 he was not short, skinny yes but not that short
Tunman said on 4/Jul/15
@Troy and Sam
Yeah,looks often 5'10 range and 5'7-8 guesses are laughable with Tim Roth.
The question is whether this guy wears big boots or lifts inside them.
I would be surprised if the guy is 1"taller than the listing though.
G said on 25/Jun/15
Dmax,
In that video clip of him and Jamie fox you can also see he is wearing really thick boots which probably gave him an inch or 2
Owen said on 23/Jun/15
Dmax,

As a 176cm man I wake up at 178cm
After 7 days laying in bed I believe I should go to at least 181cm
Imagine if I got measured by the tip of my toes
Owen said on 23/Jun/15
You gotta remember he spent 7 days laying down in a hospital bed after he got shot
Add that stretching to his height and he will be 6ft tall measured from toes

Anything above 5'9 is absurd for him
5'8-5'9 sounds about right

@Rob oh...well these people don't know how to measure lol and yeah he is about that height cause I saw a video clip with him and 5'9 Jamie Foxx in living colours or something like that?And he appear to be lil bit taller
Chowdhuryx said on 22/Jun/15
Well I remember watching a 2pac documentary where his former bodyguard frank mentions 2pac being 5'7 .
He really doesn't look 6 ft , at least 5'8 - 5'9
Dmax said on 18/Jun/15
Is it possible for a 5'9.25 man be stretched to 6 feet tall when he is dead?
[Editor Rob: could always have toes that pointed forward on the autopsy table and the person measured from the toes? ]
G said on 16/Jun/15
Tupac and ice cube were the same height ice cube is 5'8
Sam said on 4/Jun/15
Troy is spot on, while I do agree with Robs listing it cannot be ignored Tupac many times appeared in the 5'10 to 5'11 range. I think Tupac was more 5'10 and hit 5'11 in footwear.
5'10 flat
5'11 footwear

5'9 is right for pac
only looked 5'10-11 on boots

He looks more 5'10 , 5'11 than anything. 5'8 is nuts
[Editor Rob: a strong 5ft 9 range for him might be nearer.]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/May/15
He could look anywhere from 5ft8 to 5ft11
hey rob said on 21/May/15
2pac never looked short nor tall, it is best to say that he is 5'9 at average
Troy said on 13/May/15
Rob, I think you should upgrade Tupac to 5'10 or even 5'10.5"

Tyrese is listed 5'10.75" but Tupac's almost the same height:
Click Here
Queen Latifah is listed 5'9.75 but Tupac is taller in every single picture:
Click Here
P Diddy is listed 5'10 but Tupac looks taller:

Dr Dre is listed 6'0.75" but Tupac is almost the same height:

Biggie is listed 6'2" but I don't see a 5 inch difference:

Click Here
Mickey Rourke is listed 5'11, but Tupac is the same height, sometimes even looks smaller (Notice he's not wearing boots)
Click Here

To those saying Tim Roth, 5'7" is the same height as Tupac in Gridlock'd, no:
Click Here

To those citing Frank Alexander, 5'11, claimed Pac was 5'7,
think again, they were the same height:
Click Here

Snoop is 6'4 and towers Pac in some pictures because of angles but look at this video with no camera advantages:
Click Here

Look at Tupac with 6'2 Suge Knight:
Click Here

To people claiming 5'7-8, stop... there's no way someone that short would stretch to 6ft on their death bed or be able to get away with 5'11" on a police report.

Overall, Pac looks to be in the 5'10 range or maybe these others need to downgraded.
Troy said on 13/May/15
Frank claims 5'11 and claimed Pac was 5'7, but the photos say otherwise
Frank said he's 5'11 and Pac was 5'7 but Pac looks taller in the pictures

This 5 '7 5 '8 , crazy talk , look at him with Omar Epps and no lifts or more footwear , He was close to 5'10 at the smallest , Close to Mickey Rourke and Taller than a boot wear Tim Roth , lol at less than 5'9.5
Damon said on 6/May/15
Tupac could have been 5'8", and thus the mugshot pointing him at 5ft11, since he used to wear big boots
but 5'7 is impossible
Destructo420 said on 5/May/15
Tupac and Tim Roth looked the same height when I watched the movie where they was trying to get clean and at the welfare office applying for Medicare lmao live that movie. And Tim was 5"7'. Also can anyone remember the name of that movie?
Slim Shady said on 27/Apr/15
@MJKoP
Dude, you do know even a dead man stretches his height when layed down, right?

My guess for him is 5'9, agreeing with listing.
Also, Rob, could you add a picture to his page? He was a great rapper and has a lot of fans, including me.

5'10 bare minimum. A 5'7-5'9 man would not be measured as a six feet tall on a mortuary slab.
5'11 barefoot said on 8/Feb/15
2-3 inches shorter than mickey rourke.
Mac said on 17/Jan/15
I can see him as 5'9 flat but hit 5'10.5 max in boots and that would possibly make him appear 5'11 to the naked eye.

Looks more like a 5'8" guy to me, honestly. Over an inch shorter than Tyson. Click Here

I know it's a pretty bad photo for height, but I really struggle to see Pac taller than 5'8, he always looked like a smaller guy.
smartkid said on 24/Mar/14
There is now way in hell could a 5' 7" man be measured at 6' 0" on his autopsy report. This is fishy? Spine does elongate when lying down, but 5 inches?
kutsal said on 9/Feb/14
he is not short 5,11 .
teej said on 6/Feb/14
I always though tupac was kinda short about 5'7. But if his autopsy gave his height as 6'0, taking into consideration his spine would have been elongated, wouldn't he have been atleast 5'10 barefoot? And in his mugshot he is 5'11? Probably taken in shoes, so resulting in him probably being around 5'10. Why is he listed as 5'9 rob? I personally thought he was shorter, but we can argue with an autopsy, and a police measurement.
Heysuss said on 15/Dec/13
2pacs mom Afeni Shakur referred to 2pacs body as being small. In a video of him joking around the camera guy a friend of his obviously calls him a little skinny punk. Which lets one think he was 5'7 dude sometimes with an imagination and . In reality I think he was just a really skinny guy and his height drifted somewhere around 5'9-5'9.5 barefoot and with shoes 5'10-5-10.5. Very Skinny 5'9 guy with bad posture.
truth said on 15/Dec/13
His bodyguard Frank claims 5'11 for himself and 5'7 for 2pac. BUT EVERY SINGLE PICTURE of them 2pac appears the exact same height, sometimes a tiny bit taller than Frank, other times a little shorter than Frank. Very interesting. Did Frank just sensationalize the legend of 2pac being short because it makes his legend even all that more insane. Granted Pacs dimensions look 5'8 but next to people in pictures he almost always looks 5'10/5'11.
Ted said on 9/Dec/13
Tupac always looked short. Even 5'9" seems like a stretch for him.

I would've guessed 5'7".
(S)aint said on 15/Nov/13
Big Bad Bong - He is dead,lol. You did not see Tupac in September.
Paul said on 15/Nov/13
A lot of 5'9 guys tend to give a shorter impression. Perhaps his bodyguard mistook him for being shorter. Therefore in my opinion I would say Tupac was 5'9 barefoot and possibly 5'10.5 in sneakers or boots.

Well then, let's close up shop, now. You know, because no one ever has a false height on their driver's license, god forbid. lol Come on, people. Let's start thinking before we post.

I TRULY believe that Tupac was at least 5'10 and on a good day 5'11 around the same Height as me! Tupac is NOT short, it was the people that were around him that were 6 feet tall or more! I WISH I met Tupac in person!

I always thought Tupac was 5'11", haha. 5'9" is allright though. 5'7" is a little ubsurd. Would his autopsy have givin him 6' because his spine was decompressed, Rob? He obviously hadn't been standing in awhile.

i met tupac in lasvegas in 1991. hes 5 ft9 the same heigth as me,you no i never met a person as kind hearted towards children as tupac, he would walk over and pick up a crying child like it was his own white, or black, or brown, or yellow, or red,he was one of a kind never replacable god bless him.
Alex said on 10/Sep/13
I think he was 5ft 10. Look at the movie Juice, he's a fraction taller than Omar Epps (5ft 10) because of the boots.

Met him in '94. 5'9" is accurate, keeping in mind the shoes he wore increased his height quite a bit. But there's no way he was 5'11 or taller.

I'm 5'10" and he was maybe and inch and a half shorter...so maybe his height is closer to 5'8" and a half.

teej said on 10/Jul/13
I always thought tupac was short around 5ft6-5ft7. But then his arrested height is 5ft11 so then he's 5ft10 barefoot. And his autopsy result says 6ft, obviously when you die your spine elongates making you true height. When i wake up in the morning im 6ft2 barefoot with an empty stomach, but in the day till night im a strong 6ft1 so i say im 6ft1 because thats the height which i am mostly. So tupac must have been around 5ft10 unless the autopsy result is false and his arrested height is also false.. However his wife said he was 5ft7.. So im not sure, i thought he was short, but you never know to be honest. Legendary rapper, made a big influence on me.

First off they just released biggies autopsy info and the man was at the most .6'1 which makes perfect sense .Secondly 2pac looked like he was about 5'10 tops i got a friend who is 5'10.They are about the same height also i met puff daddy in person.He's 5'10 i know for a fact him and pac were bout the same height .In certain photos like the one with him and dre.They look about the same height dre being 6'1 .I saw the drop it like its hot video with pharrell and snoop the ratio.In height between pharrel and snoop is about the same as between pac n snoop.

I am a 5' 10.5" woman. My height was taken just 2 weeks ago at my dr.'s office. I met Mr. Shakur 2 months before his passing and I will tell you unequivically that he was taller than me in a vertical as well as horizontal ppsition. Get over it. May God bless the dead.
Boss_luv said on 5/Jun/13
In drivers liscense photos they don't ask you to remove your shoes. PAC always wore timbs and high heeled shoes. Prolly with some insoles for a extra inch or two meaning in some shoes/timbs it gave him a 3-4 inch advantage. Frank says he was short as well as his ex wife stays "he was only around 5,7". So with timbs on and insoles that makes hi m 5'10-511'. Even look at all his videos he has a smaller stature u can just tell by looking at him. Either way regardless of his height dude was a realist, a poetic, leader and a real man. Props to 2pac. Still bumpin his **** in 2013
Baby $l!mm said on 16/May/13
Uncle Luke in a Tupac tribute issue of XXL called Pac a "short guy with a Napoleonic complex" and Snoop always towered over him in they pictures together by what looks like over 6 inches at least. If pac was 5'9 or taller nobody would have called him "short". I bet he 5'6-5'7 at the most. Who cares anyways y'all? Height don't make you great, it's what you do in this life that makes your legacy. He 6 ft. aiiight, buried 6 ft. under.
gravy said on 8/May/13
Pac and T.I both lied when they said they were 5'9. They are both 5'6, 5'7. Tupacs bodyguard wasn't the first to say he was a short guy alot of radio personalities and even snoop dogged describe him as being about 5'7. The Dude wore tremendously large boots all the time and probably a dr. scholl or 2. All this proves to me is that short people are the most talented.
solardo said on 22/Apr/13
Puffy is 5ft10 and theres a photo of puffy with pac and pac looks taller than puffy so pac was atleast 5ft11
juju said on 21/Apr/13
snoop dogg towered 2pac. if tupac was 6 foot, snoop wouldn{t tower him.he was 5 foot 8 5 foot 9
Doubters said on 17/Apr/13
I just can't get it, if all his licences, mugshots etc confirm he was 5'11'' why doubt it?? I think it's pretty obvious, looking at him next to Snoop Dogg he is quite shorter than him but not THAT short. He couldn't be 5'9'', impossible. So 5'11'' or even 6ft is correct.
C-Note said on 14/Apr/13
There is no way that Tupac was 5'11" or 6'. In the movie Juice, Tupac was at least an inch or two shorter than Omar Epps, who is 5'10", even when Tupac had hair. 5'8" or 5'9" had to be the best fit for Tupac.
Brah said on 5/Apr/13

He really doesn't looks as short as 5'7 in pics. 5'9" is a good call for him I think. Maybe 5'8" at least.

there never was an autopsy.....thats another factor to go along with the tupacs still alive theory.

He never struck me as a tall guy. Definitely not 5'11" or 6'. He looks 6ish inches shorter than Snoop Dogg in pics. 5'8" seems most likely.

Pac wasn’t a big guy: 5 foot 7 inches and 160 pounds, but he loved to fight. It was my job to neutralise those situations before they got out of hand.

Tupac's former bodyguard Frank Alexander reveals:

I was 5 foot 11inches and almost 20 stone. I knew my size was a factor or Tupac. He liked having a big-ass nigga on his side.

There's a song where he says: "they say me how do you survive when you're 5 feet 9..." The song's name is 'Straight ballin''.
Calamity said on 19/Jan/13
He was obviously 5'11.5
Trent said on 18/Jan/13
Nope, Ice. Absolutely no way there was even close to 6 inches between 2pac and Biggie: Click Here

And Biggie wasn't even measured as high as 6'3 for his autopsy. He was measured at 6'2! And autopsies always give exaggerated heights because the liquids in the body expand from being frozen.

I know he gets described as 6'3 everywhere, but it's clear he was nowhere even near it.
Ice said on 17/Jan/13
@ Trenton you must be trolling . 5"11.5 for Biggie is just ridicilous . Biggie was legit 6'3
Conti said on 17/Jan/13
I would say tupac was 5'9,because biggie was 5'11 without thicker shoes,and that means 2 inches taller than him.
SOLARDO22 said on 10/Jan/13
He grew later in his, because in juice he was 5ft8 and later on he grew to 5ft11 also put weight, remember he was young fellar and you dont stop growing untill your mid twenties he died at 25.

Jay said on 7/Jan/13
How can he be listed the same height as Belushi but is clearly shorter then him in Gang Related. I'd say he looks more like a weak 5'10 and Belushi a weak 5'11
ajcf1995 said on 3/Jan/13
There seems to be an endless debate on his height? why? why on earth would there be so much confusion on something so obvious to anybody that ever met him?
Trenton said on 10/Dec/12
Oh, yeah, it is strange how those 6'2 and 6'3 descriptions float around everywhere. But he actually described himself precisely as 6' several times. Just one of those misconceptions that spread, I guess.

Take a look at this paragraph:

Many biographers and historians have described GW as standing 6 feet 2 inches or 6 feet 3 inches tall. But when ordering clothes from London, GW himself always gave his height as an even 6 feet. He described himself on those occasions as follows: "a Man full 6 feet high & proportionately made" (GW to Robert Cary & Co., 30 Nov. 1759, in PGW: Col, 6:375); "my stature is Six feet--otherwise rather slender than Corpulent" (GW to Richard Washington, 20 Oct. 1761, in PGW: Col, 7:81); and "Six feet high & proportionately made; if any thing rather Slender than thick for a Person of that highth with pretty long arms & thighs" (GW to [the London tailor] Charles Lawrence, 26 Apr. 1763, in PGW: Col, 7:201). GW was precise man by habit and training, having worked as a surveyor and kept size rolls (listing soldiers' height) during his service in the French and Indian War. David Kennedy, a captain in the British Army who met GW in February 1756, described him as "a Strong Man"--"about 6 feet high" (Earl of Loudoun's Diary, 27 Feb. 1757, Loudoun Papers, Huntington Library, San Marino, quoted in Knollenberg, GW: Virginia Period, p. 47).

Sam said on 10/Dec/12
Trenton, I've never heard a height estimate of less than 6'2" in life (many range into 6'3") for George Washington. I've heard of his fluid-stiffened autopsy. I guess his height was boasted about an inch or an inch and half to 6'3.5". Can you please provide a link to where it claims Washington stood 6' feet even? Using the same rules, we can guess Biggie at around 6'0.5"-6'1" in life if he was measured 6'2" at his autopsy.
Click Here
Trenton said on 8/Dec/12
(Rob, this is Trent: I wanted to start posting under Trenton if that's okay.)

Autopsies give exaggerated heights since the fluids in the body expand in freezing, adding appositional length; and of course as the body has been laying down the spinal fluid fills out as it does in sleep. So that's why Tupac's autopsy gave an obviously "incorrect" height.

Notorious BIG's autopsy was just released, and his height is given as 74 inches, which is 6'2. (This seems to have been initially miscalculated as 6'1, since that is what all the papers are reporting.)

Since Biggie measured 6'2 in an exaggerated autopsy height, I'm guessing he was 6' at the very maximum in life. George Washington, for instance, measured 6'3.5 for his coffin, yet he reported himself in his letters as 6'.

Pac does look around around the same as Jamie Foxx. If we take a 6' maximum of Biggie, 5'9 for pac is further evidenced in their famous pic together. He really looks around 2.5 inches under him.

I'm saying Biggie was 5'11.5 and Tupac 5'9.
6-3; 220. Not a runt. said on 4/Dec/12
He was a runt -- the black equivalent of a skinny little emo fag. He was the '90s equivalent of a black Adam Levine. 154 lbs.? LMFAO. Was he on a 7th grade football team somewhere? Too bad he hid behind guns, I would've loved to see him get his weak-ass crushed by a real man.
mId said on 13/Nov/12
Click Here He looks about the same height as jamie fox.. and pac seems to have the bigger shoes. Jamie claims about 5'9.
Tupac Amaru Shakur said on 11/Nov/12
Tupac was 5'6 to 5'8, going on photos with Snoop Dogg, Dre, and Mike Tyson.

Some song lyrics also allude to this

From the song "Uppercut": I'm a little nigga, thats why its so raw to just watch me, battle lions, cause I'm a little skinny nigga battlin' niggas three times my size.

Regarding the whole weight thing, from the song "Straight Ballin'": How do you survive weighing 165 in the city where the skinny niggas dies?"

prodigy said on 27/Jul/12
5'9 is accurate
RealG said on 26/Jul/12
Everyone wants Pac to be tall because no one can "respect" a short man, esp if he claimed to be so gangsta. The dude was clearly NO taller than 5'7. Watch his interviews with Arsenio Hall (5'11) and he clearly looks 4-5 inches shorter. The "And Ya Don't Stop" VH1 documentary compared his "firecracker" temperament to Biggie's "calm" demeanor and they frequently referred to Pac's "diminutive" stature as to why he fired up so much. Really... it's okay that Pac was short guys lol. So was James Brown (5'6), Quincy Jones (5'6), JaRule (5'6) and some of music's other greats. These cats saying 5'9+ is just laughable and wishful thinking.
Jack said on 24/Jul/12
His height on his driver's license and prison ID were also 5-11. There is no way he's below 5'9, look at him next to Mickey Rourke in any photo, they are close the same height. And he is a few inches taller than 5'7 Tim Roth in the film Gridlock'd.

no more than 176cm that's for sure.
Karma said on 1/Sep/07
Pac is actually five ten according to this picture. Timberland boots or not. Take your mouse put it not to the top of his bandanna but the top of his head. Which goes up a good amount. Take your mouse in a straight line the mouse will be two inches comparatively over his head. Now squash down the guys hair which is one inch. Tupac is DEF taller.
glenn said on 30/Aug/07
at times he did look 5-10.so maybe your right.but...he did have big boots on most of the time.some,with a heel.
2Pac 4 Life said on 28/Aug/07
I would say that Pac was at least 5'10" because on a Picture wit Dre he looks almost as tall as him and in Juice he looks a lil bit bigger than Omar Epps who is 179 cm, and on a picture wit Snoop and Suge he looks like at most 15 cm shorter than them.
If yall want to look at it just tip Suge Snoop Pac and then youll see.
He wasn't as short as yall say...

Tupac is 5'10, just look at the shoulder difference between Glenn and Pac.

right.i agree with 5-9 the most.
Viper said on 16/Jul/07
Glenn, I thought Tupac was 5-7 till I saw your picture. Hes looking a solid 5-9.
glenn said on 15/Jul/07
i agree darkfalz.5-7 is more believable than 6ft.its possible he was 5-7,but i dont think that low.he was taller by an inch or 2 next to 5-7,5-8 tim roth in that movie,i think called gridlocked.
Darkfalz said on 14/Jul/07
Autopsy was a joke, he looked tiny, claimed 5'10" but Snoop at 6'3" towered WAY over him, at least 6 inches, so 5'9" at max, more likely 5'7"

AJ said on 9/May/07
tupac mostly wore timberland boots, as i am sure he is wearing in this picture, which add almost two inches to height, so this probably accounts for the discrepancy between 5.8/5.9 and 5.10/5.11

dan uk said on 23/Feb/07
From Pac's videos and in particular drom that seen when he rolls into court he looks small. i think 5'7 tops-he was known for being short. People who stand 5'10 are not called short. As a side point, I am 175cm exactly without shoes. is that 5'8 or 5'9? thanks
Sale said on 16/Feb/07
In one of his songs Pac mentions "I'm 5 by 7 will I get to go to ghetto heaven" and in Gettin' Money, as someone else stated, he mentions that he is 155. This however changes in later songs to reflect his future weights, in another version of Gettin' Money he mentions 165.

Will said on 6/Feb/07
One of my favorite tupac moments is the interview where he is talking about Mike Tyson. Pac is talking about how he admires Mike (remember pac died before tyson did the really weird ish) because "We have the same heart, the only difference is Mike's big, I'm small." Tyson was only 5'10", and I know he was 225 but you have to believe mike was at least noticably taller to get tupac to call himself small.

I never saw Tupac. He brought drama upon himself. You can't dress like a Piru when Cuz crews are around. Big fight nights in Vegas are a trip. Go to the MGM crap tables after the fights and you'll see whole crews out of L.A. that could scare Suge & Snoop's size 777 bodyguard. More bling than Jacob the jeweler ever made. More fur than I've ever seen. I love Vegas to people watch.

Franco said on 21/Nov/06
why is it that 5'9 is 1.75cm??
isn't 5'7 = 1.70cm and 5'8 = 1.73cm.....isn't it supposed to be every inch = 3 cm?
so 5'9 should be 1.76cm ?

in that pic he looks 1.75.

[Padraig: 69 inches = 175.26 cm.

Rob wrote it so that the closest centimetre to the inch is displayed.
68.9 inches = 175cm, 69.29 = 176cm. You could do it other way, round every cm down, or round every cm positively upwards, and some sites might do that.]
hmm said on 14/Nov/06
When people go to sleep your spine gets relaxes and stretches out. Tupac must have been measured with a straight spine from being dead on a autopsy table, which could give him a few extra inches. I agree with 5-9.

If u look on the film of resurrection towards the middle of the film it shows pacs Prison ID card where he is stated as being 5ft 10 and 177 pounds which is approximatley 75 KG, i think this is feasable as it would be right for height/weight correlation. To some people pac may seem taller because he always wore long baggy clothes which give the impression that someone is taller because of he length of the the shirt and trousers.
Rayray said on 14/Aug/06
Tupac had to be at leat 5'9. i think hes 5'10 , because in Tupac resirected he went up next to mike tyson (who's 5'11 for sure) and Pac was no more than an inch shorter. Only thing is that he had shoes on so mabey like 5'9 barefoot but either way he was the best ever.

'Pac had a slight build but he wasn't unusually guant for a man of his height(think of Michael Jackson for a celeb who actually is). And you guys talk about Stallone or LL but I actually argue that 2Pac is the ultimate enigma of height. Seriously. I've read anywhere from 5'7" to 6'0" with this guy. Even many of his loved ones describe him as being 'short' and 'small' but then his passports, police records and autopsy say different.
He was 5'11 said on 20/Jul/06
The police reports say 5'11, plus when he takes off his shirt he is very skinny. He is not standing up straight in that picture and still has a few inches over that guy.

As for showing up as 5'11" on the police line-up board, it's not as if he was standing against measurment increments on the wall, at least not in the photo I've seen. And the weight listed on the board does not correspond to a height of 5'11" either, at least not for his build at the time. 154 pounds for 5'11" would be far too skinny¨Dskinny enough that even his cheeks would probably look gaunt, which they don't. I agree with others here that he always looked around 5'7" to 5'8". Heights given on autopsies, despite what may be expected, probably can't be fully relied upon since the discs in your spine decompress quite a bit after lying down for an extended period of time...as one would in a morgue. That said, it wouldn't stretch by 4 inches, probably more in the range of 1" to 2", but then again, the numerous inaccuracies and inconstistencies in the autopsy report are half of what spurred the rumors that Tupac faked his death, with the assumption that the autopsy report must have been fabricated. Of course, song lyrics like "I heard a rumor I died, murdered in cold blood, traumatized...but it was fiction" probably added to that whole thing as well.

"And they say how do you survive, weighin one-fifty-five
in the city where the little niggaz die"
"get my skinny lil' ass kicked"

Took them lyrics from his song 'Gettin Money'.

I don't think so, I believe in one of his songs he said "weighin 165"
his weight written on his board when he got arrested was 154 and the weight written on his prison ID card was 170

R.I.P Tupac says on 15/Mar/06
Autopsy also has Tupac at 215 lbs
Tupac doesnt weigh that much or does he, he was a beefy guy, he was mostly muscle and muscle weighs more than fat so i guess i can see that

tupac being 5'7" ive seen this height on a few websites but i also have a picture on my computer of his drivers license and that says 5'10" ive written 5'11" on my id card simply because i didnt know my height at the time i wonder if thats illegal, who knows, anyway tupac, a great rapper, a great actor. i would have loved to meet him but stuff happens. RIP Tupac

[Editor Rob: my mother had a height 2 inches under what she is on her passport...back when you wrote height on uk passports.]

reason they don't force measurements is b/c law inforcement usually requires only a ballpark. IF you look 5'7 and put down 6ft, they'll check you on it, by that I mean ask. I seen it happen before in the CA DMV. but many times they let it slip through b/c these ppl are sitting behind a desk and don't size you up plus their SOOO busy
CoolJ said on 3/Apr/06
Yeah I knew a guy who's just over 5'9 and he puts 5'11 on his license. They should force measurements.
Glenn said on 3/Apr/06
Ive said this before,but my friend is 5-6 or a hair under 5-7,and it says 5-9 on his license!
MD said on 2/Apr/06
I think the current height is about right. He may be .25-.5" shorter, but I haven't seen enough pics to really judge that.

Jay, people lie on their driver's licesne/ID all the time. People routinely increase their height by an inch or two.

Good god, Glenn has a picture with 2Pac? How long has he been doing this?!
2Pac RIP said on 28/Mar/06
Nah, people say he looks small but when you actually meet him, hes taller than you would expect.
Anonymous said on 25/Mar/06

Glenn said on 17/Mar/06
some people say Im 5-6.some say 5-10.Im 5-7 3/4.good posture and shoes can make me 5-10.
R.I.P Tupac said on 17/Mar/06

Glenn said on 16/Mar/06
If he is 6 feet,the Im 5-11.
R.I.P Tupac said on 15/Mar/06
Autopsy also has Tupac at 215 lbs
Glenn said on 15/Mar/06
Another mystery,but he always seemed 5-10 in crazy boots.5-9 max in barefeet is my guess.
