Not liking his music is totally understandable but don't act like you know any aspect of his life. How was he a "wannabe" in any way? What did he "want to be" that he wasn't? What claim did he say he did in a song that he didn't? You're calling the dude that was practically born in jail to black panther mom and lived the majority of his life in poverty a wannabe while not making such a statement for a guy like Biggie. Who came from a middle class family and went to private school as a kid.
What makes him different to any of those other rappers? Exactly what subject matter in his songs was different from the 20 Biggie songs about sellings drugs and being kingpin Frank White or the same subject from Raekwon?
So much ignorance.
Well, I'm pretty sure Pac never got arrested until he was in his 20's and on TV and known, so there's that.
I don't know why you're equating growing up in poverty with being a gangsta. I'm quite sure Pac came from poverty, had a lot of tough times, etc.....what's that gotta do with being a gangsta? He WASN'T in no fucking gangs. He was a smart dude with heart and passion going to performance arts school and shit. Not a gangsta.....and that's a good thing. He shoulda stayed that route.
I don't applaud his bullshit he was pulling at Death Row, and messing with Suge, and messing with Haitain jack and all that shit. He didn't have any business messing with all them in the first place. That's why he's dead, and he was quite ignorant many times in that portion of his life and it was a mistake going that route. Many who knew Pac before his crazy period have expressed the same thing. That's not ignorant to point that out.
Sad, because if he would've made it through that and maybe grew up, he had a lot of great qualities.
