Your post is offensive and it shows you hear alot but you 'listen' very little.
I think Tupac pissed off the wrong gangsters and got handled accordingly. After listening to his lyrics, he is nothing more than a hustle. He'll say
whatever will sell records, and it eventually led to his death. I am in disbelief that so many people think highly of him--rap is a hustle. It's the
same thing over and over said by different people intended on contributing to the cycle that is African American 18-35 demographic culture that is so
deadly in the US. There are so many good poets out there, Tupac isn't one of them, IMHO.
I respect your humble opinion. But allow me to shatter its fragile foundation with FACTS.
You have the completely wrong idea about this individual. He was the total opposite. I don't know of any rapper/activist to not only write poetry (A
rose from the concrete), but to write plays as well. Please tell me what is the definition of an artist. His music is like 1/100 of what he had to
offer to humanity. He was very "aware" of the things that are taking place.
Rap is a hustle your absolutely right, but Hip-Hop is a culture that is coincidently leading the whole entire world.
It is the freedom of expression, coupled with the rage will all have from being misinformed and lied to. It is waking everyone up. He is not known
and remembered for being someone that contributed to the cycle, He is known for being the only Rapper/Individual to go against the grain and as far as
I'm concerned he is the ONLY individual that was able to articulate and express our struggle in such a way that even skinheads and neo-nazi's gave
tupac respect and they admired his courage and his work when he was falsely imprisoned.
There are some things that people should keep to themselves, and an opinion that is based entirely off of emotion, is one of them. I could go on and
on but this quote.......its self explanatory.
Here is a quote from tupac - Keep your head up
I wonder why we take from our women Why we rape our women, do we hate our women? I think it's time to kill for our women Time to heal our women, be
real to our women.
Where did it get him?????? That is so arrogant and disrespectful, but I respect your opinion at the end of the day. I can answer this two ways, He
is in a better place, you know with Dr. King, and all the other Great American Heroes, away from ignorant people that tend to put everyone in a box.
Or you can say that it got him, world-class recognition and from his work, he is known as legendary poet and a brilliant American Man on all of the
continents that have human life.
Peace and Bless
