Mopreme was born in South Jamaica, Queens, New York. As a child Mopreme lived with his father, Mutulu Shakur, his fathers wife, Afeni Shakur and his younger brother Tupac Shakur.
His talent and love for music began to manifest itself in early childhood, where he could be found rapping on the streets of Queens. Mopreme knew early on in his life that he wanted to pursue a career in the music industry.
As a young adult, Mopreme served in the military for a brief period before moving to Oakland, CA. It was in Oakland that Mopreme hooked up with Tony! Toni! Tone! and recorded the hit song "Feels Good" (MUSIC VIDEO BELOW) off their multi-platinum album The Revival.
In 1993, Mopreme joined his brother Tupac on the single "Papaz Song", off Tupac's second album, Strictly 4 My N.I.G.G.A.Z. It was also around this time the Thug Code was developed by Tupac, Mutulu and Mopreme. The Thug Code ultimately led to the development of the group Thug Life.
The group consisted of Tupac, Mopreme, Big Syke, Macadoshis and Rated R. In 1994, they released the album, Thug Life Volume 1. Mopreme was featured on 6 of the 10 songs including the hits "Bury Me A G" and "Cradle To The Grave".
Next on Mopreme's rap resume was an appearance on Tupac's multi-platinum All Eyez On Me album. Mopreme showcased his lyrical skills on the song "When We Ride". Mopreme continued to perform and record with his brother until Tupac's untimely death in 1996.
