I'm not saying the best ever as some people who only know a little about rap would say. But 2pac was an alltime great who was very influential and contributed a lot of hard work with strong emotion. Ever since the digital underground days his rhymes had a lot of character in them and he stood out more than shock g and money b. His rap style is very poetical and he covers a lot of emotions of a troubled lifestyle. I believe he was better at the time of 'me against the world', but was still ok on deathrow, some might not agree, but I feel deathrow fueled his style more into 'gangsta without a cause' than his political and real heartfelt style that was a better influence to our troubled societies we live in. And as a result, the 'thug life' image deathrow helped to escalate even further, was also his downfall. It was a sad day back in sept 96 when I heard he had passed away. I just thought, damn what a loss!. And sadly even pac knew his day was coming soon because of his life situation at the time. The good thing is, while he was in prison he got to write a lot of rhymes and also just before and after he was out he was known to just write lyrics in a short time not a lot of others could match. Theres a few 100 songs he still has and will be released in time. Lets just hope that whiteboy eminem doesn't try and produce anymore of them to appeal to the others(if you know what i mean!). 2pac was a role model for our struggling youth in the heart of the citys, and i don't mean these well off crackas with identity and sexuality crisis'. This was music for the REAL struggling society, not the wannabes who took it upon themselves to become false thugs portraying the image in their heads to fit the music in their ears. Most of them weren't fans and didn't know about tupac until after his death. A lot of people were in a confused state leaving themselves wondering and trying to convince others that ''he's still alive!'', that is how much of an impact he made. I did think that too until 97 when I thought it through properly and had to let it go. I mean people have gone so far and taken his lyrics out of context, he was referring to leaving the ghetto not the earths surface, he spoke of escapism of his 'thug life' wanting to get rich, people thought he died from his first shooting which ended in his undeserving arrest which is what he used to refer to and he always knew that his life would not be that long in the struggle. All of these conspiracy theories are weak and hold no weight to an argument which easily would result in ''pac is dead!''. I mean all this 7 bullshit has to stop, you are only fooling yourself and have too much time on your hands, let it rest!. ohhh, his barbers last digits are 223=7, his album had 14 tracks, divide it by 2=7, and it goes on.......GROW THE FUCK UP AND STOP THIS 7 SHIT!! and all the other stuff, if you have anything to prove let me know and I will clarify it to your concience. I don't think any of you who claims he is alive have even read the REAL machiavellis books, and if you have, you would not question if pac is alive or not right now. But his spirit lives on and his music is here forever. I make music too, and we have a lot of things in todays studios, stuff to change the layers of your voice so you sound like someone else(e.g. pac, biggie, eminem...on and on), ways to chop sections of vocals from old songs and make them into new ones that sound completely different, computer programs that could make your CD cover look like you are standing in front of 100 real ferraris with gold teeth and bling that you don't have. ANYTHING YOU CAN THINK OF. I have used all of these things when playing around in the studio and home. All eyez really are on suge knight for his death(smart people will feel me on this too) otherwise it could have just been gang related. People need to see that, normally when people die, they can't do anything else except for be dead and a dead person. Let us all just remember tupac for what he done and what is still unreleased for the future. Peace! 7 luv! lol
man1:Yo, that looks like 2pac with some hair and a beard over there who that guy is passing that bag to.

A passionate social activist with expressive lyrics who knew how to appeal to people with his revolutionary views. Never showed fear, commanded immense respect from whoever he dealt with, encouraged people to "stop, study your lessons, always do your best" (Me Against The World) and follow their dreams.

I listen to Pac, but I tend to gravitate more towards his songs like Me Against The World, , Changes, etc. He lived what he spoke (well, most of it) and the fact that he died at the peak of his career only immortalized him. Very emotional in his lyrics, not necessarily the best/most skillful lyrics, but emotional and passionate and can really touch your heart if you take the time to appreciate. This might be stretching it, but Pac is to me a sort of Shakespeare, who will live forever because he spoke of ideas and concepts that everyone can relate to, like jealousy, greed, hatred, injustice, etc. and he did it articulately and with style. Pac knew how to balance meaningful, deep songs with radio smash hits, an ability lacking in a lot of today's artists.

"Btw, on his album 'Until the End of Time' , he has a song 'Fuck Friendz' (a song that thrashes his 'friends') right beside a song titled 'Lil Homies' (Which is a tribute to his 'friends')."

No man, Fuck Friendz is a song about some girl he wants to get with but not have an emotional relationship. A friend with benefits. And Lil Homies is a song about youth caught in the thug lifestyle before they've even become men. It's not about his friends.

Just one of many examples of how people misconstrue Pac's songs and lyrics to be something they're not because they have some personal problem with rap. So they attack its most influential figure. try again bud.
Verse 2, Me Against The World

With all this extra stressin'
tha question I wonder is after death
I feel my last breath
When will I finally get to rest from this supression
They punish tha people that's askin questions
And those that possess
steal from tha ones without possesions
Tha message I stress
to make you stop
study your lessons
Don't settle for less
Even tha genius asks his questions
Be grateful for blessings
Eon't ever change
keep your essence
Tha power is in tha people and politics we address
Always do your best
Don't let this pressure make ya panic
and when ya get stranded
and things don't go tha way ya planned it
Dreaming of riches
In a position of makin' a difference
politicians and hypocrites
They don't wanna listen
if i'm insane
It's the fame made a brotha change
it wasn't nothin' like tha game
It's just me Against tha World

The most famous, greatest, most influential, best selling rapper of all time.

Many idiots that know nothing other than his music is still released say 'HOW IS HE DEAD@!!@!@!@!@ HE STILL RELEASES MUZIK!!!!!" When true fans know that Tupac was known to record 2-3 songs in one day, and was known to record over 2-300 in his career.
2pac is great. yep. Buy his albums

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.
2pac + Biggie = perfection

Correction:
Some said Nicollo Machiavelli was a spanish philosospher who faked his death, he was Italian. Tupac studied Nicollo's books and beliefs while he was in jail.
2pac is a Legend. Legends live for ever. I love 2pac.

The epitomy of everything that is good about music. A legend for his music. Not just a musician but a poet and a visionary. Deep thought in his music and lyrics that need and deserve thought. This man didn't rap for money but becasue it was a job. He'd go into the studio every day with tones of shit. The good die young.
2pac/tupac is the greatest songwriter, rapper, poet and musical visionary ever. Period. Biggie is kinda good but nothing close to what 2pac was and is.
