I once did a lesson on Tupac’s poetry and not one single student in my 30 person class had any idea who he was.
I went in a big New Era store in Ximen a few weeks ago and was looking at a (really cool) Tupac hat they had. The clerks hadn’t heard of him.
Neither have I lol
Don’t worry, you’re not missing much. If he hadn’t died in a famous murder, he’d be just a small footnote in rap history.
That’s like saying John Lennon would be a footnote if he wasn’t assassinated. Or Kurt Cobain would be a footnote if he hadn’t killed himself. He was acclaimed while he was alive. I’ve listened to a lot of rap and 2Pac is definitely in the top 5. But I’m guessing rap isn’t your thing anyway…
I’m actually a big rap fan…just not of Tupac. I think he’s extremely overrated. John Lennon or Kurt Cobain he is not.
Careful, man. That’s borderline racist.
Oh how the tables have turned…
Who is your favorite rapper? Not doubting you, just curious.
I don’t have a favorite, but I like all kinds.
I like some of those (love one or two), and some of those I feel very ‘meh’ about.
Now you know how I feel about Tupac.
Mac Miller is no Tupac Shakur.
And thank god for that.
What I want to know is, who is @shiadoa’s favorite rapper?
Hmm , I thought you may take this opportunity to ask this question . There are some great melodies mixed in with the unintelligible garbage , so it’s quite difficult to decide I think I would go for the Bay City Rollers .
I’m torn between Vanilla Ice and Bart Simpson.
