Frank's Bio 2010

FRANK ALEXANDER



Chicago native Frank Alexander has been many things during a varied and exciting journey through life. Frank has served with distinction in the U.S. Marine Corps. as well as an Orange County Deputy Sheriff Jailer. Frank was an amateur/professional bodybuilder (Frank placed first in his weight class 16 times in 32 competitions between 1979 and 1995. He was the overall winner 5 times.) And co-author of the Best Selling Book (3 editions) about Tupac Shakur, “Got Your Back” along with Heidi Siegmund Cuda. Frank was also the highly successful owner of his own personal training business prior to becoming Tupac Shakur's hand-picked, personal bodyguard during the last year of Tupac's life. Tupac Shakur was also many things during his brief life of 25 years: Poet and prisoner, poor and platinum, prophet and agitator, saint and sinner and eventually shot and killed. The documentary film: “Tupac Shakur: BEFORE I WAKE”, is the true and factual story of a personal relationship between a much missed iconic superstar and a much maligned personal protector . This film was co-executive produced by Frank Alexander, who also appears in the film and Sean Long, head of Sepiatone Entertainment. “Tupac Shakur: BEFORE I WAKE” is presented by Frank's production company, Step N' Up Enterprises along with Sepiatone Entertainment, and Xenon Pictures. This film contains never-before-seen footage of Tupac recording his last album, “Until The End of Time” with commentary by Frank and others, discussing the life, and more importantly, the death of Tupac Shakur, revealing new information and fresh insight into what remains an unsolved murder.

“I had taken a job working as studio security with Death Row. Me and Tupac were on a strictly “hi, bye” relationship at first. Then I moved up to video security. My very first body guarding experience was with Snoop and The Dogg Pound in New York. This is how everything kicked off. We're in New York, December 1995. We're doing the video shoot for “New York, New York.” We're in Times Square. Biggie Smalls gets on the radio and announces to all of New York that Tupac and The Dogg Pound is in Time Square shooting a video. That was Friday night. Nothing happened but Biggie had fueled the fire. Even though he was loud and wrong, he got folks hot. Tupac was in California at the time. The next afternoon we were in the Bronx to shoot another scene when somebody shot into Snoop's trailer from across the street. I did my job and safely evacuated Snoop and The Dogg Pound (Daz, Kurupt and Nate Dogg) and we all returned safely to California. To my surprise, after we got back, I learned that the word at Death Row as that I was a hero. I was personally summoned to Suge Knight's office where Suge asked me what happened, thanked me and informed me of my “hero status.” Frank explains. Little did Frank know then that his actions on that scary day in the Bronx would send him on a collision course with the most successful and controversial figure in Hip-Hop…Tupac Shakur.

“Now I'm being asked to bodyguard Tupac. I said no. I didn't want to bodyguard 'Pac. I had heard stories from the other security guards about how hard Tupac was to keep up with. They said he drove 100 miles an hour, he tried to lose you
Frank Alexander/Page 2.

all the time and this and that. I didn't want to do it but I was asked again and then again. Finally I said…all right. I was Tupac 's personal bodyguard. It was a challenge. Tupac drove like he had a brick at the bottom of his foot. He never shook me. I accepted him, he accepted me and we became friends.”

Frank Alexander was now personal bodyguard to Tupac Shakur at the height of Tupac's success as a recording artist on Death Row Records, a rising film star, and the increasingly antagonistic point man fueling the flames of the tragic and infamous east coast-west coast rift.

“I want to show Tupac fans and all the people who didn't know him…I knew 'Pac, and despite what they may have heard, or how the media represented him, Tupac had a loving heart and a kindness in him that was anti-thug and pro family. He cared a lot about his people. He cared a lot about his family and my family too. What he did for me, and my family, I will never forget. I will always remember and appreciate him. I was with Tupac the last year of his life and the night he was shot in Las Vegas. I want people to know what really happened. The film shows that.” Frank recalls.

“Tupac Shakur: BEFORE I WAKE” will be available nationwide in stores on video and DVD on January 15, 2002. Tupac's life and artistic output was as full of answers, direction and facts as his untimely death was as full of questions, confusion and rumors. Now, five years later, Tupac's bodyguard, Frank Alexander through his Step N' Up Enterprises along with Sepiatone Entertainment and Xenon Pictures sets the record straight on the last year and still unsolved murder of Tupac Shakur. With never-before-seen in-studio footage of Tupac and photos from Frank Alexander's personal collection, Tupac fans can see and hear for the first time, a birds-eye view of what happened in the days leading up to that tragic night in Las Vegas. They will see an astonishing talent awakening to a different reality, only to be cut down at the very moment of his transformation. Frank chose the title “BEFORE I WAKE” from the familiar prayer…”If I should die before I wake”…because Tupac was killed before he fully awoke. Although, according to Frank, Tupac's eyes were at the time of his shooting and subsequent death, fully open to a new, positive direction for himself.

Tupac: Assassination unfolds as a compelling whodunit that reveals what actually happened the night Tupac was shot and most importantly, why this happened as well as the events leading up to that fateful night and the ensuing investigation. Two perspectives are explored in the film. First, how the shooting happened, what may have led to it and the disconnect between those facts and what the public has been told, and secondly, the testimony of Tupac bodyguards, whose provocative comments provide the answer to why Tupac was shot and killed. These men were never questioned by the police. This film allows them to finally go on the record with what they know. This eye-opening documentary points out all of the failures of law enforcement officials to fully investigate, follow up on leads and interview key parties involved. By the time this DVD ends, the smoke and confusion caused by unsubstantiated rumors, myopic myths and urban legends will dissipate and a clear picture will appear. Alexander and Bond have done something that the Hip Hop community has long awaited. They have provided the facts that may finally bring justice for Tupac and his mother Afeni Shakur - 11 years later. Is there enough evidence in this DVD to spark a Grand Jury inquiry? You will be the judge after you see this powerful film.

"Unlike the last film that I did, Tupac Shakur: Before I Wake, which was more of a personal saga about the relationship between Pac and I, this is a film concerning things that happened the night Pac was shot and even months and weeks earlier that the police didn't bother to question some of Pac's bodyguards about. So this film is more of a news piece rather than a personal story coming from me," says former Tupac bodyguard Big Frank. Frank has appeared on Fox News, UPN New's,Vh-1, A&E, MTV, Discover Channel, FUSE Cable TV and the 700 Club as well as many other New's Plat forms and countless Magazines and Web New's Magazines speaking on Tupac and today's Youths. Frank's goal with the Youth of Today is to make a difference "I want the kid's not to become a product of their environment to give them some thing better then what the street's are going to give them, we must help these young people before the Street's raise our youth and make them what we don't want them to be"


“No one can judge me but God. Tupac's mother Afeni doesn't blame me for Tupac's death. I'm not trying to profit from Tupac's death. I want people to know what really happened during the last year of his life. This film does that.” Frank says in conclusion.

HATERS...

Haters mean your excelling in what you do! Humans are notorious for being jealous...no one likes someone who is doing better,
so next time someone criticises what you do, it probably means they wish they were the one with the talent you have to some this might hurt, but truth often does! Real Talk!

Whats up big Frank?! Ive read a lot of Tupac material that's floating around out there and I just wanted to let you know that I truly enjoyed Got Your Back. It feels good to read a book or listen to an interview with someone who was actually rolling with Pac and has the ability to articulate other sides of our big homie. Do you know any titles of books that Pac read during the time that you spent with him? I am aware of the Art of War and The Prince and all the ones that were in the Thug Angel DVD. I was just wondering if you witnessed Pac reading during his hectic schedule and what were the titles? Thanks keep your head up!

Is a manager worth it?

I ask myself this question all the time and I still don't have an answer.I have tried many a time to get someone to manage me as an artist and I have had ZERO luck. As a matter of fact the manager I did have never got me any work, isn't a manager supposed to do that so they can make some money too?Either way I had to let him go and I do it myself, don't get me wrong if someone wanted to manage me I would let them as long as they were legit. Not saying the guy I had wasn't legit but he was just un organized and didn't know where to start or finish.If you do decide to get a manager I would do it,  my past experience should be nothing to base your decision off of but I do know FOR A FACT that you want a manager who is as passionate about your talent as you are.Without that you are just telling people some guy random dude is your manager while he does jack shit to get your music out there. - Half DeezySee More
