    Same thing that makes rappers today great, having industry connects and being a little suss 'n mysterious

    He was well read, something a lot of ppl don’t note when talking bout Pac.

    For me, one of the things that makes a rapper stand out to me is (and honestly this isnt solely what makes one stand out but to me it does make my ears perk up) how do they carry themselves in interviews?

    It always seemed like whenever you put a mic in front of him, every word meant something. To this day, i think this Vibe ‘96 interview is imo the greatest hip hop interview of all time. So many topics was touched in so little time with the savvyness of someone that was well read on those kind of subjects. And it just showed how well aware he was of everything. A lot of niggas these days be…living under a rock.

    The biggest con he had imo as a rapper was his loyalty to be rap LeBron James. He carried a LOOOOOOOT of trash niggas on tracks that he shoulda just let be him spazzing for 2 straight verses solo.

    "I'm why all these niggas running around with a gangbanger on their payroll now"

    37 years later & this is still true

    Pac hardly ever picked an instrumental that went well with how the outlaws rap.

    If he was more careful how to present them sonically they would of been a force to reckon with. Here’s a remastered weapon of the song “late night” with the outlaw verses and it’s pretty decent. Also has an extra Pac verse if y’all interested

    I think voice, energy etc is so much more valuable to making music than technical ability. That doesn't just apply to rap. When you only have technical ability and none of the heart the music is just lacking

    1st time hearing this and it’s big facts.

    Now this is utterly baseless speculation but something about this track makes me feel like 2pac was the “creative director” of the song . Usually Pac never liked helping the outlaws with their pen ,so they were constantly rushing out half baked raps trying to desperately keep up wit Pac. but something tells me he actually got the time to really flush this out.

    Pac specifically wrote music for black people but his writing was so honest other races and ethnicities could also relate.

    There was a level of vulnerability and soul in his music that touched the listeners heart and soul that i don’t think most artists fail to achieve not only rappers. You FEEL everything he said.

    I think about what Shock G said about Pacs rapping style. He compared it to MLK delivery. I don’t think there was a coincidence. Nas and Jay are the GOATS to me and Lupe and Future are my favorite rappers but I don’t mention Pac because there’s no word I can describe that are so great to do it.

    To compel to the minds and hearts of us regulars and still give inspiration to millions and touch spirits with words 30 years later is something that no other rapper has done

    He will forever be amazing OP

    RIP to him now til forever

    one of the only artists that really had that ability tbh

    Pac really touched people’s hearts, in a way no rapper has done since
