The Top Ten

1 Changes Changes

People, we just don't have to listen to this song but also take action, as that is what he wanted was. Lets fulfill his wish...

Really out of all the Tupac songs.. This one don't get me wrong it is a great song but his best ever? I'm going to have to say o do not agree.. What about soulja story if I die tonight brendas got a baby whhy pick the most comercial song?

Fantastic and meaningful song that truly touches you, fantastic lyrics and you can really feel what he's trying to tell us.
Probably the best song of all time in my opinion, tied with Dance with the Devil by Immortal Technique.
Rest in peace, Tupac, you were a legend!

Honestly not just one of the best 2pac songs, but one of the best rap songs of all time. The beat, the hook, and especially the lyrics, 2pac's message is amazing.

2 Life Goes On Life 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

So incredibly deep. Fantastic rhythm. Probably his best ever!

3 Dear Mama Dear 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?

Reaches a place only African American strugglers can really feel. RIP

-Someone living the Cali Dream...

5 Hit 'Em Up Hit '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.

Best diss track ever. RIP 2pac we will miss you

6 Keep Ya Head Up Keep 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!

This is an amazing and touching song they don't make songs like it anymore. I mean just listen to the lyrics.

7 Only God Can Judge Me Only 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..." - preachinpreach

Only God Can Judge Me became a world wide quote used in everyday society, the song is also mad!

He spoke in this song about friends who stabbed him in the back amazing!

8 Ghetto Gospel Ghetto 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!

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.

9 I Ain't Mad At You I 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 - ravikanth

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"

Show the progression of life, unlike being in jail juss how people change. Its close to home for me... line when he says "When I talk about money all you see is the struggle
When I tell you I'm livin large you tell me it's trouble"

10 Hail Mary Hail 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!

1st should be "Life Goes On" and 2nd "Hail Mary"

The Newcomers

? Breathin Breathin

Definitely one of his best songs!

? To Live and Die in L.A. To Live and Die in L.A.

This song is definitely Top 30 for me, an excellent song, yet it's only just in the Top 90!

Gotta be top 5
everything from word play, beat an chorus is on point

The Contenders

11 Ambitions Az a Ridah Ambitions 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

This is number one by far period

12 If 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".

INDEED. If I Die Tonight is lyrically a wonder

13 Thugz Mansion Thugz Mansion

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.

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!

Greatest hit from Tupac's Better dayz, well its really the only good track!

Great song different from a lot of his

14 My Block My 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 probably has the best instrumental of any tupac song and one of the best lyrics. This deserves at least top 10.

My Block (Remix) are we talking about? Now that is my soonnngg! That should be number 1.

15 Me Against the World Me 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!

I think this song is one of my favorite
