Tupac never claimed he was gangsta
He claimed he was a man who spoke for the drug delears, the felons and the street cats who couldnt
plus tupac showed himself a lot in his songs
and how can u say Tupac aint a thug when he grew up in oakland???
the thread starter is a fu*ken idiot
YEESSSSS!. this maybe be the smartest person in this thread, i was waiting for somebody to say this sh*t, i thought i would be the one to have to. PAC, never ever glorifed a "gangsta" image of himself, he glorified the image of other people, i think there are only a handful of songs where 2pac say he himself ever sold crack, and he EVEN said HIMSELF, that he could not sell crack, he got his a.ss kciked and got robbed, that is why he turned to poetry and the arts to make him what he is, and that is what makes him far more powerful and far more RESPECTED, to people then BIG, taking absolutely nothign away from BIg, he had some very very good songs, and undoubtedly these 2 were head and shoulders above the rest of the rappers.
The thread starter is prolly some stupid kid who doesnt understand hip hop for what it really is, he has been completely sucked in by G-Unit and all the other mainstream rappers wo glorify this gangsta image "america has a thing for this gangstas" even tho i think 50 is a moron, he is right, glorifying selling crack, being a so called "gangsta" is what sells records and is an image, there is a reason that these rappers make their sales and then move to the suburbs, TO GET AWAT from that kinda life. Pac never ever did that, he said it wasnt his nor their fault that the people around him were doing what they were doing, they had to, to LIVE, and he said even with his riches he still cant let go of that GHETTO, image that will be forever with him, just because it is where he came from.
BTW hood headliner, who the hell is that in ur PIC????
