Born leader simply put. A soul who was chosen by fate (seriously, do the math) to be a leader for black youth in so many ways, and change the world for the better.
Even though he epitomized every element of his character his potential was hindered by a tumultuous upbringing starting before he was even born.
He died young and his death is largely misconstrued.
In my eyes every black man/child/young adult who say they "respect" Tupac is supposed to stop the Thuggin, deadbeat daddy, woman disrespecting bullshit (check your women though), and recognize their purpose and potential as black men in America. Stop wasting time and start building. Constantly seek knowledge and the white mans game of wealth. (Yea the latter sucks and you got to be smart about it, hence knowledge) We don't live in anything close to a civilization. Live your life to the fullest, and be a real force in this world if you are that content in living in a country that is in direct contradiction to your spirit. You often have to help yourself before you can help others.

And that is pretty much the definition of TUPAC AMARU SHAKUR. All caps for you Agent Smith bitches.

Lyrical Genius. Tupac is listed as the most successful MC in the "Guinness Book of World Records." Even after his death, he has sold a total of 67 million records worldwide making him the highest selling rap/hip-hop artist of all time!
Tupac Amaru Shakur was indeed "The Rose That Grew from Concrete".
