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.
What is the lesson of TUPAC AMARU SHAKUR?

The greatest rap artist to walk the earth. Artists like 50 Cent and Lil Wayne disrespect, and, altogether, leave this great man rolling in his grave. In one song, he was a killer, rapping about death and hate. In another, he was a completely different person, rapping about peace and love. If you asked rappers today for money, they would say no. But if you asked Tupac, BOOM! You got it. When he died, it was up to artists like Biggie and Dre to keep hip hop alive. When Biggie died, Dre was all that was left. Then artists such as Timbaland and Vanilla Ice showed up and ruined the rap game. This man is a legend. RIP Tupac.
Hold Ya Head, 1996, Don Illuminati, aka Tupac Amaru Shakur
These felonies be like prophecies

Begging me to stop

Cause These lawyers getting money

Everytime they knock us

Slashing pockets lyrically

Suckers fleed when they notice

Switched my name to Makaveli

Half the rap game closed

Expose foes, with my hocus pocus flows

NOT shot by the government, what would they have to gain. Also, not the greatest rapper alive, as all he rapped about was how hard his upbringing was. WOW! He should have been more positive....
Do you like Tupac?

Err....he's alright I suppose
