    2pac is so overrated: * in the beginning people named him a copy of Chuck D * His only classic is MATW. * His first 3 albums were good but nothing special * He aint lyrical like Rakim * He is flow and delivery were nothing special * He wasnt a great battle or freestyle rapper. * 10.000 songs were the same drinking henseesy, smoking weed, thug here and thug there This is no hate but get of Pacs dick. Pac aint better then: * Rakim * Kool G Rap * Big daddy Kane * Biggie * JayZ * Nas * Scarface * Big Pun * Big L * Andre 3000 * Black thought * Eminem
    • nice try let me school you
      Let me school you first about your comment and yes i respect you're opinion 1- Big Pun is my favorite MC ever 2-Listen 2PAC had a movement when he was alive 3- hes music was banned by time warner and other major distribution companies 4- the brother got crucified by the media (no internet back then)5-.Scarface more lyrical then PAC your in cuckoo land 6- none of them MCs you listed above (par Nas) represented the ghettos of america more than Tupac 7- Hit em up is the greatest battle song ever (was you alive when this record dropped?) 8- Number 1 selling artist in HipHop til this day 9- Best MCs ever are dead in no order PUN-BIG-PAC-L and Snoop when he was on DeathRowRecords. 10- 2pac lived the lyrics none of the above had shoot outs with cops (i think i got rest my case)
