...oh yeah, Im not liking country music anymore, it too is sucking right about now...the new young artists arent even really country anymore IMO...this is sad, because this was where Texas music really shined...its what gained Texas its national spotlight as a music mecca..

But I cant say I was the biggest 2pac fan, even when he was alive..he made some of the most hypocritical music Ive ever heard...imo..Im sure his intent was well, but his message was conflicting
That's why I liked Pac. He wasn't one dimensional like MOST rappers. His music was for anybody AND everybody. That's how MOST music is, its contradicting and conflicting, just like the world.

Exactly


My favorite poem by Tupac was "Ambition of Adversity"

Take one's adversity
Learn from their misfortune
Learn from their pain
Believe in something
Believe in yourself
Turn adversity into ambition
Now blossom into wealth

Pac was simply a poet. That was deep.

I understand that...but thats just it..he wasnt any different than most artists imo..its just that what he started, has pretty much become formulaic for most rappers nowdays: A couple of dance songs, a few tough guy/bragging songs, a couple of uplifting songs, a couple of mama songs -- rinse, wash, repeat. But, I agree that he was one of the great artists (as far as individual song content, very straight forward wordplay, and a stellar persona) of his genre's era..in hindsight I just think I overrated his talent initially

Pac is nothing like these rappers today but I understand your logic. These rapper today do it for money and they don't have the vocabulary of Tupac let alone the lyrical capacity. Pac did it for the genearl love of people.

Yea overall I think gangsta rap crippled black america. That breed of music along with the crips and bloods migrated through out the country and had a big impact on the young black youth. Too many young black men loss there lives over senseless activities.
