    Your right, I was speaking to his pedestal comment, and the Irony of the situation if he/she was religious, its ridiculous when we knock a person or group. Yes he was a gangster, but he also poured himself into his art.

    I'm sure you have statistics to back up your claim that white kids buy more rap than black kids, but that really isn't surprising. It's simply an economic thing. Poor kids don't have money to buy CD's. That doesn't mean they aren't listening to it. And again, I haven't stated that rap music is the cause of anything, so no, it wouldn't turn a suburban neighborhood into a crime-laden area. Rap music reinforces and encourages negative behavior, that's my point.

    Tupac was a role model (and because he's now a martyr, will continue to be) whether you'll admit it or not. I guarantee you more inner-city teenagers if polled would rather be like Tupac than Neil DeGrasse Tyson. Most kids would have no clue who he even is.

    There you go again making unfounded assumptions about me. I can assure you I did not grow up in an affluent neighborhood.

    Dude, seriously, I am done with this. I just wanted to comment on a good rapper and maybe discuss some rap with other people that enjoy it and have some interesting insight. Why does every thread on this board have to turn into verbal combat. It was supposed to be about rap but congratulations on riding the moral high horse. Good luck with all your hopes and dreams.

    Most black kids from da hood likes to rob and steal, and cause Tupac was such a significant, transcendent figure, he had a big part to do with the problems. And only US ghettos with mostly black people have issues with poverty, gangs , violence, and dope. And all a lot of the blame can be put on all rap music artists. And folks from the hood that listen to Tupac and similar type of music are bound to be thugs. And only Tupac and similar artists portray and convey "bad" images and messages.


    Does that about cover it?

    Not a big deal, but it's Greatest Of All Time, not God.

    But now I'm just splitting hairs.

    I'd have to say Eminem is up there too.

    I say GOAT, but doesn't necessarily mean he's MY favorite of All Time. Lupe is probably tied with him. Great, brilliant lyricist and great flow, and the antithesis of the modern poser , thug rapper.

    Yeah, rap music is the direct cause of all of our gang violence in America. /sarcasm


    Marshall Mathers (Eminem) said it best in "Who Knew":





    Blaming rap for societies problems is like the people who blamed Marilyn Manson's music for the Columbine shooting.

    Eminem also has a line:

    "I came to save this new generation of babies
    From parents who failed to raise them cause they're lazy"

    I think that's from D12 - "Fight Music"

    Couldn't be more true.

    I'm sorry, I wouldn't want my children to be 'saved' by eminem.

    "Murder, murder, murder, and kill, kill, kill! "

    "Need a backin' out this lady's Jag started blackin' out
    Pulled the Mac-10 out, stuck it in her face
    Shut ya ***kin' mouth before I blow the brain from out the back ya scalp
    Drug her by her hair, smacked her up
    Thinkin' ***k it, mug her while you're there, jacked her up
    Stole her car, made a profit"


    Sounds like a very intelligent and inspirational rapper to me...not.

    As far as Tupac goes, sure he may have been a good rapper but some of the messages he portrayed were not beneficial to anyone.

    I'll say what I've always said about Tupac's music..Tupac could take you to church, make you want to turn your life around, expose the conspiracies of society, and make you want to go and shoot up a club.

    To summarize Tupac, he was a confused young man who grew up in a troubled life. He didn't overcome those things in which he knew were bad for his life, in fact he found himself immersed in things which he knew were wrong at the young age of 17 as in the video that you posted.

    He had a tragic end to his life and his rapping ability should be remembered but he is by no means a good role model for today's youth.

    Good Lord.

    It was analogy. Basically saying that if kids do the things that some rappers say, it's the parents fault for not montoring their kid. Which is true.

    And try listening to "Mockingbird", "When I'm Gone", and "Beautiful" for starters. Not all of Eminem's songs have the lyrics like the one you posted above.
