The Top Ten

Just amazing, the way he puts it toghether always blows me away, 2Pac isn't just a rapper, he's a poet.
A deep song expressing about the wrong we have done, and what changes we can do to undo our wrongs
tupac never fails to deliver! what a song!
I have no words to explain my feeling after listening this song. 2pac you are really rap god.

2Hit 'Em Up
The best song I ever love tupac rest in peace your rap keep us thinking to be a rapper
Thanks man
Pac could not be censored his entire life and it provided us with great entertainment
In my opinion, the best free style song ever invented in rap history, B.I. G and other rappers mentioned before on this song could never answer it back
Best Pac song.
Describes his style 110%

3Life Goes On
This is my favorite of Tupac's songs. This, to be exact is my favorite song of all time. The lyrics are written from his heart and he is the only true rapper that doesn't rap about drugs, money and hoes.
His most underrated song and I'd say #2 (after Dear Mama) Beautiful lyrics as he faces death. It's very deep and emotional. He mourns a friend and prepares for his own end.


This is my most favorite song of Tupac. This is my third most favorite song of all time. Next will be Changes, California Love, Me Against The World, and How Long Will They Mourn Me.

4Dear Mama
How is this not number 1? If this doesn't make you love your mother even more, you really have no heart at all.
It's not everyday you see a hardcore gangsta rapper write and rap an ode to his mother. Very moving
This is the best tupac song and shows why tupac is one of the G.O.A.T not many rappers can show much emotion in their songs.

5California Love
This is the best 2pac's song ever!
I love this song its awesome super rap by 2pac dre is also awesome
Out on a bail, fresh outta jail california dreamin
Soon as I step on the scene I hear hoochies screamin
Unforgettable Song wuth Dre and the Beat is awesome love you rip

6Hail Mary
Id say in top 5 his rhymes are so sick! Tupac is definitely the king of the rap game.
Great introduction to what Makaveli is all about.
My favorite song from 2Pac is "Hail Mary". It makes 2Pac a founding father of Gangsta Rap. The beat is good enough to compete with modern rap beats up to 2012.
Hail Mary, Come with me. Classic

7Thugz Mansion
Great song but he acoustic with nas is even better. My favorite on this list
Powerful song w/ powerful chorus. Amazing!
My favorite 2pac song of all time.
Awesome song gives a litle hope to the ghetto

8Ghetto Gospel
Awesome. I don't care if its with or without elton john... No I'm glad that this song is with elton john: Pac left us some messages and one of them were: "everyone is the same - doesn't matter is he/she is asian, black, gay or whatever. "
I love this song! The slower version with Elton John is the best! R.I. P to a pretty good rapper and man
I absolutely do not mean the one with Elton John. I recommend you find Pac's full version without the omitted lines and verses

9Keep Ya Head Up
Perhaps the perfect showcase of the man's softer side, "Keep Ya Head Up" is arguably his best individual performance ever. Over DJ Daryl's rendition of Zapp & Roger's "Be Alright, " Pac delivers a message about staying ahead of the struggle and showing respect to all, regardless of gender. ("Time to heal our women, be real to our women /And if we don't we'll have a race of babies /That will hate the ladies... ") HA
Pac preaching to the young ladies of the world to never give up, no matter how bad the struggle may seem
This should be like #3

102 of Amerikaz Most Wanted
Way underraterd. His combo with Snoop was exceptional. This song has one of the best flows in all of rap and outstanding lyricism. Snoop and Pac kill this ish.R.I.P. pac even though he's still living in his spirits.
Best song ever. Why so underrated?
Picture perfect, Pac paints a perfect picture with Snoop in this song.

13I Ain't Mad At Cha
Awesome song! The beat and hook are good, but these lyrics are some of his best.

"Even though we seperated, you said that you'd wait don't give nobody no cuchi while I be locked up state. "
-2pac, Realest rapper alive
How can a 2pac classic be that low.
It is the best song of one of his best albums all eyez on me and one of the best rap albums of all time.
2pac's best album is me against the world (obviously)

14Starin' Through My Rear View
This song is f$$$ing awesome
It's not an easy choice, but since I have these words "I'm seeing nothing' but my dreams comin' true, while I'm starin' at the world through my rearview" tattooed in my neck, I will vote 4 this one!
If you have a heart vote for thiis

18So Many Tears
Some of the best and most personal lyrics he ever wrote: "I'm falling to the floor, begging for the lord to let me into Heaven's doors"
One of the most emotional songs of Tupac Shakur every time I listen to so many tears I shed tears this song is beyond every song in every music genre that was ever recorded
In my opinion his best song this is superb

A amazing beat of Dr. Dre and maybe the greatest diss-track against biggie. Even if you don't like classic rap this song is awesome

20Brenda's Got a Baby
The lyrics of this song are just awesome... Amazing story-teller. This song has to be in the top 10. If not, at least top 15. #35? Seriously?
Incredible story telling skills. 2pac wasn't just a rapper, he was a rythmic author and lyrical genius!
Indeed, not his best one...but needs to get more votes; at least top ten!
