Why does there have to be a conspiracy wrapped around everything?
He beat up a gang member, then the gang member came back and got revenge. done and done.
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 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.

that's a reach, comparing tupac to MLKjr , the latter had a real message, he had a real motivation, and he succeeded. If anything tupac was a genius in marketing, setting himself apart from all the others in the same genre. if he had/would have had an impact on society, it would seem short lived my friend, much like his life.
tupac is dead, and he died playing the game. hell KRS-one was the real pioneer on all these things tupac talked about, but hes still around. KRS-ONE wiki
