    The Greatest of all time. You don't like it because you can't relate to it. That's why i can't relate to metal rock because its just loud noise.You listen to a big star from Africa who is really huge in his home country - you might end up saying what's the fuss - so just because you don't like rap doesn't make it bad - its a movement. People say it glorifies violence, abusive words towards women but that's their reality. Moreover all these has been going on in the society before rap music.
    My favourite jam is 'dear mama' when i explained it to my mum and she cried. RIP Amaru - we miss you.

    My son grew up with 2 PAC as his idol . He was a great poet. He was a great entertainer.He was a good man as well. When one enters the Thug life for real one had better be able to have great security. This artist had one man as his security that was his ultimate down fall.Gangsters kill one another for real over the craziest of things. I believe this was a retaliation for the beating put on the man at the casino.Where would he be now ??Peace !!.

    Four cans shy of a sixpac, I'm guessing. I do welcome the day when bad poetry about anti-social behavior, blathered over a repetitive, synthesized thud, finally goes out of fashion. I used to do sound for bands for a living; nearly always, the "rap" groups, were "performing" to a prerecorded tape, with a couple of live mics, so the frontman could interact with the crowd. This phenomena was exclusive to this genre of "music"; other genres actually featured musicians actually performing, nearly all the time. The inability to "sample" ( i.e. plagiarize ), the actual melodies created by others, was a real set back to these posers.

    Darren it's just a thing of taste.

  7. Darren

    what I dont get is how any one could call hip hop music let alone good music. Sounds like total s*it to me.

    1. Kitkat

      Rap music and Hip Hop are two different music genres.

    2. Darren Malin

      they are both crap

    3. Hafliði Guðmann Samúelsson

      hip hop is a cultre not a mucis rap is

  8. Deejay Es

    never forget the power that labels have over artists and how they create an image for them

    while some frustrated black community leaders may have seen him as the voice that won't let white America forget. his legacy will unfortunately be the lives of other deluded black youth who have died in the street in gun play with TUPAC tattooed on their chest.

  11. dewflirt

    Believed his own hype, died of it.

  12. Lycheborne

    @ Rolands : I think it was his big mouth and that he was portraying to the world that he was some kind of outlaw. (a thug, gangster). There is a huge amount of quotes in this video that shows he was trying to be something he was not ( a cold heart gangster). When from every point of view about him from his friends and family he was a man with a big heart and not till later started to really believe the hype he was rapping about. Tupac killed Tupac. He blames MTV in this doc for making him seem like a gangster and a outlaw.Still dismissing the fact he called himself a thug and seeked out the goal of convincing the world he was one (when he was not). Try to live by the gun...you might end up dying by the gun. Lets not forget the crip him and his "crew" beat the hell out of. I am sure that guy wanted payback, in 1996 tupac could not really hide where he was.

    Also the government killing a man that was paying millions in taxes makes no sense. When black men kill eachother over what a man sings about, the government most likely see's that as a win. Not saying all government is racist, but you get my drift.

    Was good and current with taxes and paying the government, also sparked a war with certain gangs. Leading to the deaths and arrests of alot of people. Bet they wish they had few more Pacs in the music scene.

    1. Deejay Es

      there is a huge part that is missing in this docu . like the part where the investigator got fired when coming to close to whatever he found was evidence . I have to admit , heroes die and there will always be a conspiracy . Tupac was monitored the whole time everywhere he went ... etc etc etc , i hope one day we will know the truth about who killed killuminati

    2. Plonkette

      A hero LOL. Wow the bar has been set really low for hero now a days. On a related note(of low bar failure) , they are giving out metals for bravery to drone pilots. ha. This world is over.

    3. Kitkat

      Yes, a hero. He has a verse whereas he states, "Marvin Gaye had me feeling like Black was the thing to be"

      For many Tupac had people of color feeling like Black was the thing to be. If you take a look at changes in history, it wasn't until drugs raped communities of colors, AIDS ran rampid, and gangs formed for power for Racism to sqeak. Racism became unnecessary for a once proud people became a enemies of theirselves.

      "Against all odds" was his goal, and he achieved his goal on the contrary. Then one looks at the movie Hunger Games and it's message, "May the Odds always be in your favor."

      Tupac only fell short for he did not speak life over his life. However, he made it so far to achieving his goals whereas many live in fear. Yes he is a hero to many.

      The government, particularly Dan Quayle (also Pat Buchanan, who was a political figurehead in that era), named names and outright said his album shouldn't be able to be released. That is a complete violation of free speech rights (1st amendment). These same people had no problem with KKK marches, so the bias is absurd. They did not like what Tupac had to say. You have obviously made your conclusions about Tupac without actually listening to ALL of his music. Yes, a lot of it was pure anger with no pointed direction, but a great share of it was about the inequality that is still running rampant in our criminal justice system. Racial profiling is a direct violation of our own constitution (4th amendment), whether you like it or not. We have laws that are supposed to be obeyed, yet the most successful criminals in this country still go unchecked while the petty crimes are posterized. Tupac represented and gave a voice to the less fortunate, which as we are seeing now, is a large swatch of society. I do not agree with many of his personal views on how things should be resolved, but I respect him for considering and voicing his concerns on macro issues when he was raised in a micro world. Not trying to be preachy, but don't pass judgement until you have enough knowledge to at least be concise and accurate.

      Hi greeninwi,

      A 2007 special report released by the Bureau of Justice Statistics, reveals that approximately 8,000 — and, in certain years, as many as 9,000 African Americans are murdered annually in the United States. This chilling figure is accompanied by another equally sobering fact, that 93% of these murders are in fact perpetrated by other blacks. The analysis, supported by FBI records, finds that in 2005 alone, for example, African Americans accounted for 49% of all homicide victims in the US — again, almost exclusively at the hands of other African Americans.

      To put these number in perspective, recall that over 6,400 U.S. service men and women have been killed in Iraq and Afghanistan combined over the course of a decade-long war fought in those nations. During the Vietnam War, which lasted nearly 13 years, some 58,000 Americans were killed — nearly 13 percent of whom were African American.

      Extrapolating black-on-black crime data reveals that, by comparison, approximately 100,000 African Americans have been killed on our own streets at the hands of other African Americans in roughly the same stretches of time. It is difficult to find anyone who would white-wash these mind-numbing statistics.

      Equally as startling, the same study reveals African Americans were victims of an estimated 805,000 nonfatal violent crimes in just one year alone.

      What’s more, blacks comprise roughly 12.5 percent of the U.S. population.

      ­­I read over that special report
      as well as your post and I find it pretty ­­­­startling that there is actually
      a document that outlines all the “black” crime in this country rather than just
      all the crime. More concerning, however,
      is the cherry picking you did to get the favorable numbers you so proudly tout. Yes, your numbers are technically
      accurate. And yes, you totally gloss
      over the true underlying cause of crime, which is poverty...not race. By and large, crime follows poverty. Additionally, crime tends to occur at a
      higher rate in urban areas due to the increased law enforcement and population
      density. Your logic is “blacks” are
      committing violent crime at a higher rate than other races; therefore, we
      should be able to presume that all “blacks” are committing crimes and
      pre-emptively stop them using racial profiling, even if it violates our own
      constitution to do so. In other words,
      it is alright for laws to be broke as long as it is being done to prevent
      others from breaking the law. Sounds a
      lot like the “starting a war to prevent a war” mentality that is so pervasive
      in our current culture. You need to
      really rethink your entire ideology if you honestly believe your
      presumptions. Should all white people
      who work in an office face a monthly audit since most white collar crime is, in
      fact, committed by whites
