The reason for giving the ID is so staff can check if it has been rejected or is still in the pipeline. You don't have to but it does rather make this thread pointless (and a waste of both our time).

Why should it be changed? Had he ever used his name that way professionally? He has many different versions of his name. But, what would be the reason to change it? It might be getting denied because there is no reason for the change. Did you submit any proof, like any onscreen credits? I believe in his movies it was always "Tupac Shakur." If you have evidence of a reason for the change, perhaps we can describe to you how to submit it differently to get it accepted. The general rule for IMDb is list them the way they are most often credited. I think they'd lean toward his acting credits and go with Tupak Shakur rather than his music credits and 2Pac, but if you have proof those credits included his middle name, you'd probably need to gather screen caps of the credits to use as proof the change is warranted.

An example might be, Elvis Presley. His name was Elvis Aaron Presley, but you wouldn't change his IMDb name to that since most, if not all, of his credits were as "Elvis Presley" (and that he was overwhelmingly known that way).

It appears that Tupac Amaru Shakur is his original name.

If this actually is the case, then it should be added in the Birth Name category as well as its current listing as an AKA

His birth name was Lesane Parish Crooks (as his Birth Name section is currently listed).
