Definition: Makaveli
The predetermination of Tupac Amaru Shakur (Date of Birth name: Lesane Parish Crooks) that his life or death would lead to the beginning of a wide spread phenomena of a thug nation created by his definition.

Tupac’s name originated from the politician, Niccolo Machiavelli who was born on May 3, 1469, in Florence, Italy. His life was dedicated in his passion to politics.

Further Detail:
The Phenomenon of a reincarnated soldier goes beyond the definition of his accredited name. The Makaveli era of Tupac was his verbal will-in-testament to the world, specifically to the urban kids, teenagers, and gangsters of America, to unite. The reincarnation is also a definitive symbol of his ongoing passion to his cause even after death. Makaveli’s lyrics and his passion mirrored his beliefs, values of being a thug, and his humanity. Hence, Makaveli was his own beginning of a new life and the finalization of a completed cause of becoming a true thug. Overall, the Makaveli – Tupac Era was prematurely ended during his death in Las Vegas.

Born: June 16, 1971 in Brooklyn, New York. Death: September 13, 1996 in Las Vegas, Nevada. R.I.P. “The Last True Thug.”
"Joe Smith White and Billy Walangulo Fob proceeded to play with their new Makaveli CD not knowing that they were not thugs but middle-class kids living off their parents and pretending to be a thug in a reverent neighborhood."

Went by this alias for most of his rapping career. Derived from the ITALIAN poet/diplomat/philosopher/ Niccolo Machiavelli. Everytime someone asks me why i love Tupac so much, believe it or not i can't give them a solid answer. Truth is, there aint enough words to describe him. I hope this definition can clearly show my love for him because i got a lot to say. So, why was the dude so great? First, the man came from nothin and still made somethin, nah scratch that he didnt just make somethin, he had one of the biggest impacts on hip hop and more importantly, society. All hip hop fans, or atleast the ligitimate non frontin sucka free ones, understand that Tupac was literally a hip hop genius. He understood the game, and had the heart to play it. He had a message and he layed it down from the heart. He didn't give a fuck about what people thought of him, he said what he felt, when he felt like it. And if he needed your attention, he didnt just say it.. he yelled it. He didnt just talk. He Screamed, if he had somthin to say the man would say it. And you know you could take him seriously, he had more credibility then any known rapper today. He went through it all from bangin to slangin. Rape charges, shootin cops(he had a good reason), getting shot, dope, teenage pregnancies. you name it, he went through it. And in every song you hear the message, his music (along with his crew Outlawz) wasn no bullshit lame ass beat wit some dumass lyrics, most of the time you got something out of the song, it really speaks to you. His Music partly because of his deliverance was so influential. I mean, might sound stupid, but i get the dam chills when i hear him... is like hearing a Martin Luther King rap. He adressed so many argued topics and if you hear him out, he makes a dam good amount of sense when he expresses his position. I guess you could say he was as much as a politician as he was a musician. And as for anyone who thinks Biggie was a better lyricist or just better in general, get real. Yah sure he layed his down and came out with a couple classics, juicy, only you, im going back to CALI (Place to BE), but he or his shit will never amount to the greatness of Pac. its just a strayte up lie to even say that, it aint even an opinion, the man could not make music like Tupac. And if everything Tupac said about Biggie was true, then FUCK him and his classics. I don't know if Tupac used more of his brain then normal humans could or maybe he was just real tight... but i do know this, how many other rappers do you know that could bag on some foos and then those same rappers give him props even after he's dead? I mean is not like they got anythin to be scared of... he's dead right? right? The Don Killuminati: The 7 day Theory....It on the 7th, you really think im dead... I dont know bout all that but shitt is kinda weird to think about..
R.I.P TUPAC and KADAFI. 2 soldiers too young to bite the bullet
