Can Tupac be catergorized with Martin Luther King or Malcom X
 

 
I'm sure I'm gonna get hate mainly because Tupac made the mistake of letting his "Thug" image overpower some of the sh-t he really stood for. So most of urban america missed the whole point of him. But for those who look deeper and understood what he stood for, do you think this a fair comparison? He had many powerful messages on makveli which reached over 4 or 5 million people. Also most of the problems in black america were in the hood with people at the bottom, and I feel like 2pac may have connected with them on a deeper level than Martin or Malcom. So am I pushing it with this comparison, or will it be safer to say he's the martin or malcolm of our generation?

Imo he didn't have time to time organise his movement, so it's inconclusive. All 3 great men were misguided at a point in their life, pac was young when he died. Biggie was just a kid. feel me?

I was gonna make a thread similar to this. Here was the OP



I saw this quote and it made me think

in every "Detroit Red" lies the potential for a "Malcolm X."
This is Pac in 1989

And this would have been one of later songs he made.

"I may not change the world but I will spark the mind that does."-2pac

I remember MLK'Jr saying something close to that years earlier during his i have a dream speach.

I think we can all agree, a Mainstream Black Nationalist rapper would be the power elites worst nightmare.

What did he do for the black community that you would consider on par with Malcolm and Martin

Not in a traditional sense. He had his own way of conneting messages and that was through art. He was a artist - a poet, musician, and actor. Malcolm and MLK did it through religion; they were organizers, writers, and speakers. I think Tupac did a good job of reminding people of what older generations stood for. He built off of the examples set by MLK and Malcolm X, Marcus Garvey, Dubois, etc.
A fair comparison would be to find music artists or actors who aimed to send socio-politial messages in their work.

I don't think he'll be categorized with MLK or Malcolm X but 2Pac has some very powerful images and imagery that I can see hanging in classrooms next to the likes of Che Guevara or a Bob Marley. His music has not only touched Black America but people from all walks of life. For that reason alone, I think his "positive" messages has outshined the "negative images. Tupac will be remember as a man who was an everyday human with two sides like everyone in society. He wanted to reach the common man to have a better society all the meanwhile letting the world see him battle his flaws and demons. He relates to the young people today's society as a figure. He is indeed a modern day martyr so this isn't an off the wall question at all.

I like Pac music as much as the next fan but he didn't do sh*t for black people. Yeah, it sound good what he talk about in interviews. But Pac wasn't marching for civil rights. He wasn't having rallys promoting peace and unity in the black community. He promoted his own agenda and be it he pushed for awareness.he contributed to what's wrong in the black community today. Violence, drugs, murder, hate, jealousy. Demeaning our women. Yeah, the boy nice on the Mic but he wasn't no leader

He never contributed to demeaning our women. Or jealousy.
