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

######!!WORLD HAS A PARTY!!########

He was a great rapper with a big character and his spirit and music will live on forever!! unless that stupid white cracka eminem has the rights to produce all his work and ruins him completely.
Tupac is the, if not, one of the realest and greatest rappers to come. He might have dealed drugs throughout his life, but so did many other great BANDS (i.e. The Eagles, Led Zeppelin, Piink Floyd, AC/DC, etc.).
2PAC was convicted of rape, and even though he didn't do it, he finally had some hardcore evidence he was a gangster. He didn't rap gangster rap because he rapped about realness. You could tell he was real when he was right about his death.

2PAC was also known to smoke marijuana and deal drugs as a child to make a profit. Some of his other means of profits would be by winning freestyle contests. Once, he won $200-$300 in a rap contest but spent it all on the rent.

2Pac(his full name is Tupac Amaru Shakur) Tupac is arguably the most successful rap artist of all time if not one of the most successful music artist in history with over 75 million albums sold to date. Many people people have identified with retelling of tragedy, struggle, violence, death, poverty, racism, revolution, and overall the imperfections of society. He seemed to captivate millions with lyrics and poetry so believe to be so inspiring that few could compare. Unlike the popular and mostly ignorant thoughts projected by society, Tupac was very intelligent educated and at the age 17 had most likely read more books than the average first year Ivy league student. Many people wish to critize his works however usually have not read or tooken the time analyze some his greatest works. Tupac's short and climatic life is usually summerized and rarely deeply considered. He was an adovate for the entire poetic nature of a generation, however the violent aspect of his music is usually magnified and the poetic nature was understated. People only seen the drugs and ghettos and never the pain and deep emotion. Lesser rapper took Tupac's unique and very influnecial syle of rap and some tranformed it it into a chain of destructive and short lived rap careers that would come to shame all that Tupac represented. Tupac was trying to build a place of belonging for the misunderstood culture of THUG LIFE. Tupac is a symbol of good rap. Tupac accomplished very much in in his lifetime and if you dislike rap do not vent your frustrations on a talented artist like Tupac. No matter what you say you can never take away what Tupac has accomplished and the kindness he's given to the masses that support him. R.I.P

Tupac's Poetry

The Rose that Grew from Concrete

Did you hear about the rose that grew
from a crack in the concrete?
Proving nature's law is wrong it
learned to walk with out having feet.
Funny it seems, but by keeping it's dreams,
it learned to breathe fresh air.
Long live the rose that grew from concrete
when no one else ever cared.

Ambition Over Adversity

Take one's adversity
Learn from their misfortune
Learn from their pain
Believe in something
Believe in yourself
Turn adversity into ambition
Now blossom into wealth

In the Event of My Demise

In the event of my Demise
when my heart can beat no more
I Hope I Die For A Principle
or A Belief that I had Lived 4
I will die Before My Time
Because I feel the shadow's Depth
so much I wanted 2 accomplish
before I reached my Death
I have come 2 grips with the possibility
and wiped the last tear from My eyes
I Loved All who were Positive
In the event of my Demise

The best rapper ever
Firstly, the man is the best songwriter ever in any genre of music. He didnt rap about guns and murder like some rappers but about the tragic circumstances he came across in his short life, such as teenage pregnancy (Brenda's Got A Baby), suopport of women (Keep Ya Head Up) and who can forget the song to his moms (Dear Mama).
If people out there wanna criticise rap music, then that is your opinion which you are entitled to, but dont criticise Pac cuz hes a better man than any of them drugged up rock stars ever will be.
R.I.P
Just imagine if 2pac was still here
by Pac 4 Ever May 21, 2007
The best rapper of all time. Who has sold the best albums there will ever be. Although everybody didnt see his point of view, they inspire others, and keep them going. He was and always will be Tupac amaru Shakur.
Man, that new 2pac album is the shit.
