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

Tupac was tha tightest rapper. Even though he's gone, his music still flows through people's veins to this day. everyone loved what he was about and how he handled hiself. There's really no way to express how tight Tupac was. He was the best rapper , and he will always be. (He's also the finnest nigga out there. I don't care what none of yall say,but Tupac looks better than Usher and Denzel put together)
There aint even no example for how tight 2pac is, just know (if you dont know nuthin else)that Tupac is the ultamite King. (no offense to T.I)

The greatest rapper to ever touch the mic. As real and as raw as they come. The influence on todays Hip Hop and almost every single rapper. Rest In Peace!
The best rapper ever? Gotta be 2 Pac!

I think Tupac is one of the greatest rappers of all time...if not THE greatest. Tupac influence was enormous and any fag who says otherwise is fucking out of his mind. He knew because of his music he would die. Thats how much he cared, he would sacrifice his own life to spread his message. To touch people with his magnificent lyrics. Anyone should respect that even if you despise rap. Tupac had his issues he wasnt perfect, but thats what made him easier to relate to. And to all those fuckheads who assume tupac is just a drugdealing thug, do a little research before you start talking out of your ass.
WEST SIDE TILL WE DIE!!!!!

- rest in peace 2pac
2pac maybe the most influential rapper in history
unlike mpost rappers today he actually had something to say and if u look at his list of books he read its far more than our dick president could ever understand (or motley crue for that matter..thats straight to u God of Rock, u cock sucking bitch...ur a narrow minded faggot and no one wants ur input. hey guess what u dick head, im a huge rap fan but i also have led zep on my iPod so u can shut the fuck up and grow a pair)

his poetry was deep and meaningful (and was not raps so shut up if u think thats all he could write)

his death marks a day that will never be forgotten

he was a workaholic, thats where his music comes from (hes not aloud, and its disrespectful to him, his family, and his friends to say hes still alive...i dont think his mother would be crying at night about the death of her living son)

any racist assholes who simply dont like him becuz he was a black man who had struggles that youd probly never survive, or becuz he made rap music can go make a definition for something they actually know about

tupac amaru shakur went to prison for rape becuz he had a bad lawyer and becuz the accuser lied to get some money. (on a recording of the trial his shit head lawyer pronounced his name two-pack amarur shakoo)

tupac, R.I.P. (1972-1996) forever remembered
In The Depths Of Solitude
by "2pac" Amaru Shakur

i exist in the depths of solitude
pondering my true goal
trying 2 find peace of mind
and still preserve my soul
constantly yearning 2 be accepted
and from all receive respect
never comprising but sometimes risky
and that is my only regret
a young heart with an old soul
how can there be peace
how can i be in the depths of solitude
when there r 2 inside of me
this duo within me causes
the perfect oppurtunity
2 learn and live twice as fast
as those who accept simplicity

ignorant, people said?...kiss my ass you know nothing
