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

"God Of Rock", you are the biggest fucking wanker, dont think that you can get a messege out to people talking shit out of your mouth, none of the comments u made were true about Pac, he is one of the most brilliant and revelusionary rappers of the time, almost 10 years have passed and people still appreciate his works of brilliance and to say this personaly and to whoever loves pac i have been brought to tears because of some of his lyrical guiness, the emotion and compassion in his words, i dont like puting other people's music down, but u can make anything sound bad eg. kiss are a bunch of make-up wearing poofs, not to mesion they dress like fags, and are gone and forgotten. but pac still lives on, and i bet that kiss couldent make 2-3 songs a day. i think that the next genaration of kids will still be listening to pac,, kiss didnt make a diffrence and thats a whole group, pac has made such a big influence in my (and alot of other peoples) lifes, look how popular he is now, and hes dead, immagine life with pac in "05" we'd still be rocking.what inpact on anything have u made u fucking poof? well then pac had more right to live then u, you fuckin scumbag poofter, be like ur idols and put some make up on. LOVE U PAC

Man... how can you say 2pac is whack? He's the best rapper of all time and there will never be anyone else to ever approach him on the mic. He might be dead but he will never be forgotten , unlike all your other over-rated Mc's like eminem , 50 cent and ja rule.
RIP 2Pac.

Watch the "Tupac:Ressurection" movie if you wanna know more about Pac.

This message is dedicated to God of Rock: you represent everything that's wrong with music these days, not Tupac. Tupac was a lyrical genius and a poet, and by narrowing your musical views, you only add to your ignornance. You see, I love classic rock and heavy metal too. I love any music that's beautiful, passionate, and high quality. And that's what Tupac has in common with Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd, beleive it or not. He sang from his heart, and not for his wallet. He was a true musical genius. If anything, you should be praising him for being one of the truest rappers out there, and for being a diamond in the rough. If you have any aggresion towards hip hop, you should aim it towards fags like Nelly and 50 cent, who only rap to make money and stink up the radio with their brand of hip-hop. Some hip-hop is real, you just have to look for it. And when you do, you're gonna be blown away by it's lyrical content just like Floyd and Zeppelin, and that's what Tupac was all about, lyrical content. His life wasn't perfect, and neither was yours. Every flower must go through dirt, and that's what he did. He came from some of the roughest circumstances in this counrty, and did something about it. If you don't like Hip-Hop, that's fine.But don't set your sights on one of the few rappers that actually represents the positive impact that music can have. Peace.
You know it's funny
when it rains it pours,
they got money for wars,
but can't feed the poor

The best rapper ever known to the world and many others. His has past away, but we'll always remember him from his BAD ASS songs and records.
Sup 2 Pac, come with me baby!
