Every so often an artist comes along who completely captivates the audience.
They shift the culture, raise awareness, and turn the status quo on it’s head. For our generation artists like Chance the Rapper, Kanye West and Jay Z have done such things. However before them, there was Pac.
Today would have been Tupac Shakur’s 46th’s birthday. Pac wasn’t your typical rapper. He was a story teller, at times an activist, at times a poet, and other times he was the rowdy rapper from the hood; some even say he was a prophet.
Whatever category you want to place Tupac in, just know that he was all that and more. He inspired you with Brenda’s Got A Baby, and Dear Momma, spoke on social issues with Changes, and got the party going with I Get Around. He seemed to know that his time on earth would be cut short, but lucky for us, his music, his impact, and legacy has and will continue to live on forever more.
Here’s the social media chatter to prove it!
