Tupac Shakur features on Vatican's MySpace playlist



www.telegraph.co.uk...


The Vatican has contributed a list of tracks for MySpace Music, an ad-supported audio and video streaming service which launched today.

However, the selection contains some surprising choices including the song Changes by Shakur, also known as 2Pac, who was killed in 1996.

More from source: The hit single released in 1998 is listed with an “explicit” warning and features lyrics about gun crime, drugs and violence on a city’s streets.

It includes the lines: “Is life worth living should I blast myself?” and “Give the crack to the kids who the hell cares, one less hungry mouth on the welfare.”

Interesting choice by the Vatican, especially when you consider the rest of their playlist:

Vatican playlist:

1. Advocata Nostra – Music From The Vatican. From the album Alma Mater featuring the voice of Pope Benedict XVI.

2. Uprising – Muse. Single from the album, The Resistance.

3. Causa Nostrae Laetitiae – Music From The Vatican. From the album Alma Mater.

4. Il Mare Mi Salva – Rossomalpelo. Song from the band led by contemporary Italian singer songwriter Serge Gaggiotti

5. After The Rain – Dame Shirley Bassey. From the album The Performance.

6. Coexist – Nour Eddine. Song from Moroccan Musician, based in Italy.

7. Don Giovanni – Mozart.

8. Rafaele Merry Del Val – Lorenzo Perosi Inni Mottetti e Canzoni, Pablo Colino & Coro Academica Filarmonica Romana.

9. He Doesn't Know Why – Fleet Foxes.

10. Changes – Tupac Shakur.

11. Regina Coeli – Music From The Vatican. From the album Alma Mater.

12. Mi sarete Testimoni – Santo Subito! (DVD). Music DVD embodying the voice and image of The Pope.

Always have been a fan of Tupac the poet, but this is just baffling, despite the core message of the song being good hearted.

Uh you've completely took his track out of context. If you read the lyrics and/or listen to the actual song you'd realise why the Vatican have it on their playlist - although of course it isn't the Pope himself listening to this music it is his public relations team.

i love how you quote these two lines and completely take the song out of context. good job.

so someone who isnt familiar with that son will automatically think the song is advocating suicide and giving crack/coc aine to children.

and kudos for listing the rest of the songs in the playlist making Tupac's- Changes even more suspect.

Dude, you didn't hear the part of the song where he says "We can't go nowhere unless we share with each other. We gotta start making changes, learn to see me as a brother instead of 2 distant strangers ".... or " It's time for us people to start making some changes. Let's change the way we eat, let's change the way we live and let's change the way we treat each other". This is the real message of the song, not the one that you implied. All you said was to make us aware of the reality on the streets and that it's time for us to act and to change all that.

I guess your low iq stopped you from understanding what the song is about. And what is so wrong if the Vatican listens 2pac? u make it seem like he's the Antichrist.

I love how you didnt read my whole post and the commented. Its not me putting those lines out, its the source. I am a fan of the song, you don't need to tell me the message, but the fact is those certain lines are in the song. It's strange considering the conservative stance of the Vatican to even imply such things, but to directly relate to the words, whether in or out of context is still strange.

Again, if you clicked the source you would understand more. So save your judgment sir.
