All i can say is he was and still is the greatest selling rapper of all time. Also if rap is so easy go do it yourself and see where you get bet you want be laughing afterwards. His lyrics/poems are truly inspiring just some you need to look harder into and see where he is coming from before you dissrespect them. Now how many other music genres do you know of that can tell life the way it is and let the ARTISTS use their freedoms and rights to express themselves to a full extent....?? didnt think so.
