Tupac Shakur

Wanna dig you 
And I can't even lie about it
Baby, just alleviate your clothes 
Time to fly up out it

From his song, "How Do U Want It," the second #1 single from his multiplatinum double album, All Eyez On Me, which was released only weeks after Tupac Amaru Shakur was released from prison in 1996.  Tupac -- or "2Pac," if you prefer -- was born on June 16, 1971, so he would have been 40 years old yesterday if he had not been murdered while cruising the streets of Las Vegas after attending a Mike Tyson fight later that same year.  

2Pac was a very well-educated guy, as his very clever use of "alleviate" here shows.
