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)

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
Until recently, I used to listen to Eminem, like everyone else in my school. Then one day, I realised, "This music is shit! Why am I listening to this?"
This lead me to realise something: White people can't rap. I'm white myself, but I realise there are some things which certain people are destined to do. Rapping is something that black people are destined to do. Now I listen to Eminem, it just seems... well, wrong.

Looking for someone new to listen to on my stereo, a friend of mine introduced me to 2Pac. It's not that I hadn't heard of him before, I just hadn't really listened to his music. My friend played it, and I felt myself completely lost in the music, a sensation I'd never felt with listening to Eminems music. Straight afterwards, I got the album my friend had got me, '2Pacs Greatest Hits'. I listened to the album constantly for 2 months counting. Seriously, if you don't listen to 2Pac already, go out and buy an album of his. He really is a legend. A lot of people still reckon he's alive, but I think he's dead. It's a sad fact that such a great talent died so young, but his music will live on for generations to come.

At time of posting, Ghetto Gospel is going to be released soon. Go out and buy it. I know I will. Really, 2Pac was sheer genius. Why do you think all the defenitions below say stuff like 'Greatest Rapper Ever','The leader of this rap shit' etc. But don't take our word for it. Go out and buy a 2Pac album.

The best rapper who ever lived.






Period.
2Pac is the best rapper ever. Enough said.
