In Entertainment History: Tupac Shakur

In October 1995, rapper Tupac Shakur was released after spending eight months in jail for groping and fondling a woman in a New York hotel room.

Shakur's case was on appeal but due to all of his legal fees he could not raise the $1.4 million bail. Suge Knight, the CEO of Death Row Records, posted a $1.4 million bail pending appeal of the conviction in exchange for Shakur to release three albums under the Death Row label.
