smart, revolutionary black mind with something to say..? yes he is

every black person is not as positive as martin or as wise as malcolm

pac was the voice of the "thugs" and "n*ggas" like he said. he never tried to be neither of them and for that reason alone he is comparable.

I dont understand why people keep thinking that the "negative" is what tarnishes his legacy.

The negative is what made people gravitate, relate, and listen to him , because it made him seem like one of them.

Pac wouldn't have been as Iconic and influential if he didn't have that balance, in terms of mass appeal he wouldnt be Pac, he would be Lupe.

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
Tupac didn't demean women or sisters. He demeaned bi*ches and hoes. There's a big difference.

And actually, Tupac was doing foundations, rallies, speeches, charities, and visits. They just weren't publicized. He didn't do those things for PR.

2Pac wasn't perfect but that's what make people gravitate towards him. There's no perfect human and Pac wasn't afraid to show that. That's what puts him in a different light. He represents all the black men that came up from a rough childhood and died young.

No, but he cud have been.


however if just on the basis of a rapper he is Bob Marley, Jimi Hendrix status, artists who are the soundtrack to the youth going through poverty, revolutions all over the world. The worldwide impact of 2pac after his death is bigger than in the US, the guys is a icon to rebellious youth

Only other black artist to have as much impact after death on the world is Bob Marley, he was the face of the last generations, the over 40's and 50's and 60's...Pac is the face of the 20's and 30's...




As a 2003 Woodrow Wilson Center report on young people in the developing world, notes:
Tupac Shakur is famous across Africa, most particularly among urban youth. His music is as common in many urban neighborhoods as Bob Marley’s once was. His face and poses, pictured on clothing and in murals, are now widely familiar. A popular T-shirt has a black background, showing Tupac (spelled “2Pac”) looking alert, with U.S. dollar signs ringing the collar and his most popular slogan, “All Eyez on Me,” across the bottom. “All Eyez on Me,” indeed—Tupac’s lyrics expressing his alienation, fury, and his conviction that his quest for revenge is thoroughly justified, the police sirens in the background of many of his songs, the belief that he was not really murdered but is still alive (often proclaimed in “Tupac Lives” graffiti), all conjure an image of a defiant, proud antihero, and an inspiration for many of Africa’s young and alienated urbanites.

In a section on young people and war the report’s writers note his impact on young soldiers in Sierra Leone’s late 1990s civil war. There, rebel soldiers adopted Tupac as their “patron saint”:
“The rebels wrote Tupac’s lyrics on the side of their vehicles” during the Freetown invasion, one Sierra Leonean refugee later recalled. “They wrote ‘death Row,’‘Missing in Action,’ ‘Hit them Up,’ ‘Only God Can Judge,’ and ‘All Eyez on Me’ on them” … the rebels “favored Tupac T-shirts and fancy haircuts”.

if you would have asked me this back when I was in high school, I probably would've said yes. Nowadays? Hell fu*king no. The guy was a complete idiot. He never lived up to his potential (or did he?), instead he obsessed over 'thug life'.

The Hate U Give Little Infants fu*ks Everyone?

Well what did he do about it except become a living embodiment of that negativity? He died the way he wanted to die. It was his choice entirely.
They will never let any great leader or person of influence come up. They will have him k!lled just like all the others and make it look like somebody else.
Look at this sh*t

THEY had Pac k!lled?

No dumbass, Pac beat up some crip gang member(it was caught on video), and then that crip shot him dead. It happens ALL the time.

Pac was a fu*king dumbass millionaire who somehow still managed to die the death of some worthless street punk.

yeah he did... how long did that last though?

He sure as fu*k had no qualms about running with bloods who were deep into that lifestyle...

or an idiot like Snoop Dogg who flaunted being a 'crip'...

Aren't you scared to talk to people in real life? Scared to apply for a job to get out of your parents house? You dirty smelly fu*king bum.
