[Newest]That is true guys

2Life Goes On
The best Tupac song by far! Just listen to it deeply! I think this song was played at his funeral, and it suits a lot of funerals!
Everyone will always be down for Tupac and the music video has a deep message in it! The most mysterious Tupac song next to the Makavelli album!
How many brothers fell victim to them streets, well RIP know what I mean? There's a heaven for a g
[Newest]Best of song from Tupac ever. Forget all the other so call rap songs this is real music

3Hit 'Em Up
Hit Em Up was the greatest thing to happen to Tupac and Rapping! They don't make rap songs like that anymore! Diss songs that is.
This song has deep messages in it, just listen to the lyrics, plus is one of the greatest rap songs ever made! does not beat Changes but it surely in second spot!
Most pissed off, venomous, powerful I've ever heard Pac.
[Newest]Call the cops when you see Tupac... โœŒโœŒ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ

4Dear Mama
Pac made is cool for people to show love to their moms. He's a true poet!
Well this song just proves the point that Tupac Shakur is not just a thug life killer. All haters should listen to this song!
Truly amazing song. Not just another mindless gangster song. How can anyone not love this?
[Newest]VOTE VOTE VOTE! Everyone should vote and enjoy this song and love your mums no matter what happens! VOTE VOTE VOTE VOTE! ยก!

5California Love
Sickest beat ever
His top 10 are
1. California Love
2. Changes
3. Hit em Up
4. Keep Ya Head Up
5. Hail Mary
6. 2 Of Amerikaz Most Wanted
7. Life Goes On
8. I Get Around
9. To Live & Die in L. A.
10. How Long Will They Mourn Me?
Changes and Cali Love are the best, this is a great dance song. Played a lot on the radio, his most successful single


Best rap song in history! Should be number1. This is the greatest achievement in Tupac's short, but legendary life!
[Newest]I don't know why this song is at number 8 it should be on the top, amazing beats, lyrics and everything is just amazing of this song


6Ghetto Gospel
This is a beautiful song. I heard Elton Johns chorus and thought yeah ok this is quite good. Then I listen to Tupac bit and next to Pac, Elton just looks sad! RIP 2Pac Number one rapper ever!
Ghetto Gospel has got to be the most amazing song I have ever heard! The lyrics are great, the beat is good and it has a good chorus line! Loyal to the Game is the most underrated Tupac album!
Provides amazing vocal and instrumental work, Tupac gives you an insight in to Ghetto life!
[Newest]This is definitely his best song. The message behind this song is insane. I think it's proof that Tupac really wanted to do a lot of good and use his voice to deliver a real message to end the violence in the streets. A lot of what is going on today with corrupt cops killing people for no reason, etc. This song really speaks the truth about that.

7Only God Can Judge Me
This song is amazing, it is one of Tupac's best! And he made one of the most famous quotes "Only GOD Can Judge Me"
"I hear the doctor standing over me, screamin I can make it /Got a body full of bullet holes layin here naked /Still I, can't breathe..."


Only God Can Judge Me became a world wide quote used in everyday society, the song is also mad!
[Newest]Its sorely missing from this list

8Keep Ya Head Up
Tupac talks about how much women do for us and we should appreciate and take care of our women, because without women there will be no life.
I love this song! Its awesome and teaches the empowerment of woman. It also shows how to treat your woman and that well basically to keep your head up
Come on! How is this not in the topen, it is the light side of tupac, and some are calling it his best song ever! This along with Dear mama are Tupac's two heart felt songs!
[Newest]A women brought you into this world, you have no right to disrespect one

9Hail Mary
The best Tupac song ever made on the BEST album ever made! Hail Mary is a lyrical and spiritual journey for all Hip hop fans!
This song is amazing, I would say even more the whole Makaveli album is amazing. I personally think it is the best album he has made. If he would have lived longer he would change the world, he would show his true nature, which never saw fully, sadly.
Tupac is the best! There is and will never be such a rapper as he was! We're gonna be west side 'till we die!
[Newest]I think it should of been #! Too. hail mary

10Ambitions Az a Ridah
This song owns all. The greatest hip hop album of all time was All Eyez On Me and this track was the greatest song off of it!
This should be in the top 5, everyone knows the beat and it kills every song except the top 4, it pursues Tupac and I like songs made by Tupac, it had a lot of critical reception, people calling it an amazing song and the best of All Eyez On Me!
It's the greatest about the life ever
He say what he want us to know no song gonna be that deep
It, s one of it kind really only one
[Newest]The beat is so sick... Rip

The Contenders

11I Ain't Mad At You
I can't believe I'm adding this song... I ain't mad at you should be #1... I'm sure changes is great but this song is deep... and the video version has a different 3rd verse which is released after pac's death... great video and song man this deserves #1 spot


Overall best song. Awesome beat, great lyrics, and nice upbeat message.

"even though we separated you said that you'd wait don't give nobody no cuchi while I'll be locked up state"
Yeah man this song should be on #1

12If I Die 2 Night
Song is more lyrical than 95% of rap songs ever made. He wasn't a lyrical rapper, but wasn't afraid of making a lyrical song using alliteration. "Pockets is packed wit presidents pursue your riches".
Don't for get him
Yes it go hard

13My Block
My Block is one of the greatest 2pac songs that moves ones feelings, and it sheds light on the danger in ghettos...2pac's message in this song is sent deeply and amazingly.
My Block (Remix) are we talking about? Now that is my soonnngg! That should be number 1.

14Me Against the World
Me Against The World was an amazing insight into tupac's conflict with different people in his life, I reckon hit Em up should;ve been on that album because it represents what the album is all about and it came out on the same year as the album! 1995!
The second verse of Tupac is just insane
and I think it might be his best.
Great song! The remix off 2Pac Rap Phenomenon is way better, it uses the beat from Still D.R.E. and plus UGK is in it!
[Newest]I think this song is one of my favorite

15Thugz Mansion
Both versions are pretty good! This is top 5 material, Better Dayz is so overlooked even though it gave us so many great hits from Shakur!
My favorite 2Pac song by far, definitely deserves to be in the top 5, and even more so #1 or #2. The lyrics are deeper and better than any other Pac song in my opinion. I personally like the Nas Acoustic version better than the other one, but hey that's just me.
Greatest hit from Tupac's Better dayz, well its really the only good track!
[Newest]Great song different from a lot of his

16Unconditional Love
Really touches the heart, reminds us what real love is.
Reminds us of what being loved felt like.
Love this song! Pac at his best!

17Starin' Through My Rear View
One of the best songs by 2pac... should be in top 10... but well more than 10 songs deserve that place


One of my top 5 pac songs, deep and meaning ful lyrics with an amazing beat,. Don't think many people have listened to this one or it would be in top 5 for sure.
Truly a materpiece! We seem to overlook his sogs, but this one should of been on the top ten.

18Letter to the President

19Until the End of Time
Greatest song ever, should be in his top 10, this fully expresses who 2Pac really was
This song is not just tupac"s best song but one of the best songs ever!

Very good and clever gangsta lyrics by the best rapper of all time, tupac! This song should be in his top ten if you ask me. Rest in peace.
The most violent, bumpin, hardcore gangster song by Tupac. Shows a much darker side of the legend. Great music and lyrics, truly disappointed most people don't rate this in his top ten when it easily tops songs like Hit Em Up and Changes.
