a great, although highly overrated, rapper who started off as a back up dancer for digital underground. he then jumped on the west coast's gangsta rap bandwagon, and began claiming that he didn't like new york, even though that's where he was born and his first rapping name was "mc new york."
he died in 1996.
tupac had many classics, but is idolized by dick riders.
The definitive rapper, and in my opinion the definitive hero. Tupac's was one of the most beautiful souls ever to grace this planet. Everything he touched was art, he practically made the genre of gangsta rap, was a true genius and an extremely good man at heart. Complicated as he was, he fought and rapped for what he believed in and with an unsurpassed level of emotion. He's an icon and a legend to the growing society of African- Americans and anybody else who looks up to him. His legacy will unsurpassed by any before and afer him and no matter what the hell any of you think, and no matter what the hell happens Tupac will always THE hero and role model for me.

Tupac the greatest rapper to ever live. Thoughts he is stil alive. R.I.P
You cannot compare his musical talents to anyone else, he was a new meaning to hip hop.
"got the police busting at me, but they can't do nothing to a G"
"Thug life baby, i probably be punished for hard living.. police be rushing when they see me."
Good Rapper. in fact, the best. im saying this and im not even into rap.
I would say Tupac is dead, get the hell over it, but then again kurt cobain is dead and i wouldnt want yall coming and posting he is dead, get over it.
Tupac got his name from the Inca's I think and Tupac Amaru means "Shining Serpent." He was a badass rapper but too many dumbasses just say "yo tupac is tight yo fa sho hes alive" Tupac is my favorite rapper because his words were poetry, and his words are a way of life. Just listen to one of his songs, and if you can't truly FEEL it, then just give up and don't try and talk about him. He was meant to die, and he did, let him go. but let his words never die.
My life is in denial, and when I die, babtised in eternal fire. Shed so many tears.
there are too much words to describe Tupac..but simply he was a genius of his time. who knows what he could have accomplished if he was still alive today.
"it aint about black or white cuz were human, i hope we see the light before its ruined."
The best rapper ever to live. Changed his name to Tupac Shakur. Anyone who has something to say about him needs to reconsider, because Tupac is a greater man than the person who hates him. Even if he isn't still alive, Tupac still remains as a prominent figure in the world of hip-hop today.
"Hail mary, roll wit me"
---Tupac Shakur, Hail Mary
Name which originated from one of Peru's gratest warriors. He was tortured when each arm was tied to a horse and his two legs were tied to two other horses with the purpose of giving him a horrible death but he was so strong that he didn't die.
The very talented rapper Tupac Shakur got his name from this very strong warrior whose real name was Tupac Amaru. There is also a militia in Peru called MRTA (Movimiento Revolucionario Tupac Amaru) which were the ones that took over the Japanese embassy in Peru but were all killed by the swat team over there.
