A small tribute to one of the greats..
Some Consider Tupac Shakur to be the greatest rapper ever in the history of the genre, whether that is the case, he definitely was the most influential, he is the pinnacle when you consider the ’emcee’. As a fan of ‘Pac, I learnt rather than followed, he taught us a lot and although many look at the negative effects, it cannot be denied that he kicked down doors and broke windows for us whilst teaching us how to act once we get in, they say ‘you don’t know what you have until it’s gone’ and Tupac’s death is no different to this statement.
RIP Tupac Amaru Shakur (June 16, 1971 – September 13, 1996)
One of the most influential voices in music period, Tupac brought real life dilemmas to the forefront through his talent.
His story is sad if you look at it in detail, although seen living it up, he was really making the most of whatever time he had left on Earth, many people close to Shakur mention that he always spoke, not just on record, of his death, although his infamous ‘beef’ with fellow rapper Notorious B.I.G. is one of the more mentioned events in his life and career (during which he gave us the greatest ‘diss’ record of all time, Hit Em Up), the actual struggles he conquered, the trials and tribulations, the negativity which he successfully battled through, they are proof of the greatness that he represents, they are inspiration for us all.
RIP the rose that grew from concrete.
