No doubt. The fact that the lyrical content can't reflect any current events means it's probably getting harder and harder to release those "posthumous" recordings.

He never got busy in a Burger King bathroom.
And he didn't have the recipe for the gravy.

Tupac did music? I thought he was an "actor".
 
2013-02-19 06:51:02 PM
In a few more years another cd will be released because as one Tupac fan once told me, "He isn't dead,  he is just hiding till the heat cools down."  Although, I noticed that after all these years he still hasn't considered it safe to come out.  Maybe Tupac and Elvis will come up with some rap and old rock combination that will get all southerners to rejoice in a new friendship built upon the love of the same music.

/Naw, they're dead.
//besides, it'll probably sound something like Hootie and the Blowfish

I like the beats behind Tupac's lyrics.  That was the best part of anything he did.  Biggie was a better rapper, but the music behind Pac's stuff was better.

Just my two cents ... HEY I JUST CAME UP WITH MY RAPPER NAME!

That's because Biggie was, you know, a rapper. Tupac was an entertainer that wore "gangsta" like a suit.

And he paid for it.

Do you have childhood recordings of his flatuence?  We may have the grounds for a human beat-box album.

He wasn't a real gangster?  *gasp*  Next you're going to tell me that Ice Cube never actually pulled an AK-47 on anyone, or that Marilyn Manson doesn't really worship the devil.  It's almost like all these people on MTV were just entertainers putting on a show.

It is. I recall she was  associated with MOVE in the 70's and 80's, and may have served prison time. The details escape me.

Are you retarded? You must have not been paying attention if you think he's the fakest rapper ever, all I have to say is Vanilla Ice or Rick Ross or Lil Wayne or Jay Z or whatever. He's no X-Raided but Tupac spoke from the heart and he never actually claimed to be a gang banger, just someone who would hang out with the drug dealers because he needed a father figure. Not too many artists have made as music as "real" and from the heart like Tupac did.

/only overrated because some of his fans treat him like some kind of God, but he's still a legend

robohobo: I miss Tupac.

Even if you don't like him or rap music, if Tupac and Biggie never died guys like Kanye and Lil Wayne might have never happened. Puffy and his shiny suit rappers took over when they died and made the genre a pop genre in the mainstream. I guess in the internet age that doesn't matter anymore, but I always thought Biggie and Tupac dying damaged mainstream hip-hop in a big way. It was like the Altamont of good mainstream hip-hip (aka the hip hop golden age of the late 80s and early 90s).

As a late 80s baby, I came up in the 00s where the only good hip-hop was strictly in the underground and alternative scenes, but it seems times are finally changing thanks to the internet. Oh and it's nice that our era's  rock and hip hop artists aren't committing suicide, overdosing, and getting shot that much anymore.

According to his rap "Dear Mama", his mother could do wonderful things with very little, I think she will be OK.

The hate for rap music (and Tupac, for being mainstream rap from the 90s) is so delicious. I play black metal myself and frankly, Tupac was one of the best gangsta rappers there ever was. When I Ride On My Enemies, Str8 Ballin', How Do U Want It?, Ambitionz az a Ridah, Picture me Rollin' (personal favourite), and of course Hit 'Em Up.

Look, Biggie was awesome too (Supah Nintendo / Sega Genesisssss / When I was dead broke man I couldn't picture thissss / Boot up my emulator and spit a load on these haters...) but the typical superioristic Farkness is too predictable to be all that amusing ITT. It's basically like the metal threads where about 12 guys post 100 super obscure metal bands that generally are as avant-garde as possible (read: boring as hell to me, a rhythm and tone guy) and talk all this shiat about established greats within the genre. (Pro Tip: If your snare drum sounds like an empty 2L plastic pop bottle, you aren't metal).

Anyways, Tupac was a very intelligent person who lived a tumultuous life. He was certainly an artist, moreso than most who claim that title today.

/also likes 50. Ski Mask Way, Hustler's Ambition, etc. Bassline for Amusement Park is super sweet.

Are you retarded? [...] Tupac spoke from the heart and he never actually claimed to be a gang banger,


Are YOU retarded? Did you not see his stomach?

What I was saying above is, there are bad asses that rap, and rappers that pretend to be badasses. The latter has the sense not to fark with the former -- usually. Tupac was either too stupid or, more probably, too willing to buy into his own BS not to fark with actual bad guys. He believed his own lie. The jazz and ballet kid from art school put on his sideways bandanna, tatted himself up like he was king of the ghetto, started flashing guns, next thing you know he's in prison for gangraping chicks with his entourage and actual thugs are shooting him.

You aren't always who you pretend to be. But if you try hard enough, you can piss off the people that are who you pretend to be.

/I'm not arguing with you anymore because you just dropped Vanilla Ice like he was a legit rap act

In a documentary I saw about Tupac during the interview with Humpty Hump, he said that Thuglife tat was an acronym for something. Sounded forced though when he said it though. I think you are right about him believing his own lie. But so did a lot of other wannabe's, it seemed for awhile there you didnt have any cred until you went to jail, wrote your masterpiece, get out, record it, and become a star. Hell even MC Hammer went gangsta.
