D. Alexander, an award-winning women’s bodybuilder who was raised in Southern California, has completed her new book “The Private Life of Big Frank: Bodyguard to the Greatest of Gangster Rap”: a gripping and potent work that tells the story of Frank Alexander, who drove the vehicle that trailed Tupac’s car that fateful night in Las Vegas when Tupac was murdered. Frank was the one who pulled the rapper’s body from the bullet-riddled car before it was transported to the hospital. The events surrounding that night changed Frank’s life forever.
Author D. Alexander writes, “Frankie, as I called him, or Big Frank, to the rest of the world, worked for Death Row Records. He was assigned as the exclusive bodyguard of Tupac Shakur, who many consider to be the greatest hip-hop artist of all time. Frankie was there the night Tupac was shot in Las Vegas. The facts of that night are well-documented in books, movies, documentaries, police reports, and newspaper articles. This story is not about the murder of Tupac Shakur or the conspiracy theories that surround his death. This story is my story, the story of the private life of my husband, Big Frank—Tupac Shakur’s bodyguard, best friend, and soul brother.”
Published by Newman Springs Publishing, D. Alexander’s captivating work shares the true story of Frank’s Life, from his childhood on the tough streets of Chicago’s South Side to his career as a champion bodybuilder, an adult devil dog, and a celebrity bodyguard.
Told by Frank’s wife, the work is designed to shed light on the issues of depression, suicide, and post-traumatic stress disorder, which became her diagnosis following her witnessing Frank’s suicide in their Southern California home.
