Tupac Best Rapper of all timestupac4life Tupac Shakur’s music has moved many people young and old including me. Even after his sudden death, his music is still being played and sold all over the world. Shakur outspoken personality and his ability to capture his audience with his music has even inspired a professor, to teach his philosophy in a college courses in Washington College. Shakur’s unyielding lyrics made his fans become aware of how becoming oppressed in America could be changed, if only they would not just sit idle by. Shakur’s music was about his life, his political views, and socially issues that he felt needed to be addressed.Shakur did not allow fear and adversities stand in the way of him achieving success in his life. Shaker addressed his critics through his music and some say that he predicted his own demise. He was a fine actor, rap artist, philosopher, son and inspiration to his family and friends and his music is legendary and never forgotten. I remember hearing a song that encouraged me to keep my head. I was at a place in my life where I was feeling overwhelmed. It was as if the words to his song “keep your head up” reached in and touched my soul. Shakur had many premonitions about his life and all ways said he would die at a young age and in fact he did. Even after his death, his music has been released and some even say that a person can hear within his lyrics that he maybe still alive. Even after his death, his fans are still loyal and others have taking notice in his music and his ability to articulate his theories on life and what he felt the world needed to do to make a changed.
Georgia Roberts was also a fan of his music and also a Professor at College of the Arts in Washington and added a course to study his music, philosophy, and life. Just proving that Shakur’s music will stand the test of time, his lyrics is indeed timeless and that has to speak a lot about Shakur as an artist, to still be remembered by an endless amount of people. Through his music he talked about things that have come to past. One being a Black President, he said in one of his songs titled “ Change” were he expressed that America was not ready for a Black President, but through “Change” all things could be possible. Change became one of the themes in Barrack Obama road to the White House and it was then possible for America to embrace they reality of just not allowing a person’s born genetics stop the dream of someone trying to creating a better America and try to open their minds to change. In his own words in the song “Change” he stated,“We gotta make a change...It's time for us as a people to start makin' some changes. Let's change the way we eat, let's change the way we live and let's change the way we treat each other. You see the old way wasn't working so it's on us to do what we gotta do, to survive.” What a powerful message that in 2008, America finally did.
Just Tupac and others, he is the greatest both life and dead, RIP. - visitor
