Top 10 2pac Songs


The Top Ten

1 Changes

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!

Not good at all

2 Dear 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.

1. Dear Mama
2. California Love
3. Changes
4. Keep Ya Head Up
5. Hit Em’ Up

3 Hit '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

This song helps me to reach my goals.. it has such a strong power

4 Hail 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.

His lyrical genius plus a sick beat - LightningBlade

6 Life 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. - switchblade

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.

Touching man, so many tears, God bless 2Pac. Rest in peace, this is your best.

7 Keep 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

Probably the most meaningful Pac song along with Changes, Life Goes On and When thugs cry

8 2 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.

This song just makes you nod your head

9 Thugz 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

The best peace song

10 Ambitionz Az a Ridah

Messages in here that should be applied to lives everywhere! Simply amazing song, Tupac at his best..

My best 2pac song of all time

This one is #2 on my list. It showcases 2Pac's biggest strength as a rapper; he was able to be hardcore and brutally honest, but he was never afraid to show how vulnerable he was. Not a lot of people can do that.

Most popular song in germany

The Contenders

11 Only God Can Judge Me

So true and heart touching lyrics

I loved it! That's what other rappers should follow the example.

All time favorite song for me number 1 can reach the level 2pac was on r I p the true rapper

Number 1 after all eyez on me and changes

12 Ghetto Gospel

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

This song is simply perfect... perhaps not as great as changes bun definitely deservs to be in the top 10 is not the top 5... Elton John sings great and 2pac sings awesome!

Great song by a legend

13 So 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

One of the best song in rap history, so personal, lyrical and emotional he's like talking with god

Very bluesy... I LIKE IT
RIP 2PAC: Remembered for being the GREATEST RAPPER F___ING EVER!

18 I Ain't Mad at Cha

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)

This is his best song should be top 3 at least

1% really... List is messed!

Beautiful song with a heavenly feel to it and the positivity that everything will be alright at the end,but instead of the message delivering way,he did it in a personal way

V 6 Comments
19 Me Against the World

This song is how he faced his life to reach success because he met to many people that mold him to be a betta gangsta this song deserves to be number 1 it's the perfect song for watching the sunset

Bit more light hearted in terms of music but definitely not in terms of lyrics. A song that recognising his struggles but just says 'you know what who cares'. Great song. Live your life

His final verse on this track showed his deep thought. Even the genius asks his questions. Pac absolutely killed it on this track

This song is pure genius. Gets me emotional every time I listen

20 Soon As I Get Home

The Beat and the lyrics on this song are hands down the best recorded tupac put so much heart in his songs and always was talking about real. Rap today sucks so bad, We miss you pac the game needs more real rappers following in your footsteps. RIP to the GREATEST OF ALL TIME! HANDS DOWN!

Let's get my enemies not knowing I'm coming back.2Pac was the rap god


21 Letter 2 My Unborn

Mad deep this song can't even be compared to songs from this generation the way he reaches out to the ghetto

I believe 2pac is alive

This should be at top ten! one of those song that make my cry

Best song. the meaning is every every thing. its such a deep song

22 Pain

Not too many people know about this song it was on Above the rim. The beat is 90s the lyrics are deep just like the pain he had. FAVE ALL TIME

This song is my absolute favourite song! Way too underrated. I remember there was a point where I couldn't stop listening to it. Even till this day it gives me so much chills

I personally bought the Death Row Records double disc collection (a steep thirty dollars at the time) just to have a CD copy of this track. Still one of the greatest beats I've ever heard. I remember chills running down my spine when the opening credits on Above the Rim came on. Bar none Pac's most underrated song.

Just damnn

23 Brenda'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?

Indeed, not his best one...but needs to get more votes; at least top ten!

Incredible story telling skills. 2pac wasn't just a rapper, he was a rythmic author and lyrical genius!

Deserves higher position

24 Hold Ya Head

This song is to me his best from the Makaveli album and that album is my favorite album of his, just real chill music and 2pac going in as usual.

25 Krazy

This retrospective of his life is very deep and emotional

People sleep this entire song from the lyrics and production are top 5 material

Best 2 pac song ever. Reminds me of growing up. Should at least be top 10 song

Didn't really notice this when I was young. But revisting the album now I have to say this is a very underrated song.

26 Do for Love

This should be at the top, so chilled with great beat

Come on, this has great rhymes and a sweet bass part

This song and dear mama has the nicest touch to it

27 Can't C Me

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

Song I so good and underrated

Why tf isn't this #1?

I can't believe that! this song is the best I think.
anyway,I miss you so much...

28 How Long Will They Mourn Me?

This son deserves to be on this list. This track completely swags out.

How could this song not be higher on the list, it should be top 15 without a doubt. YOU PEOPLE MUST BE CRAZY - musicfiend

This song is ultra incredible! Why is it at 75?

So emotional...Beautiful

29 Never Call U Bitch Again

This is one of my all time favorite tracks from pac and very underrated.

30 Old School

Musical component is best in this song. Most beautiful and musical beat. Really great, a little bit soft, but sometimes we need some "soft" atmosphere^_^

Awesome Song, R.I.P!

31 Lord Knows

"I hope the lord forgives me because I have the spirit of a thug in me. " One of the better tupac songs. "

Great song

32 Me and My Girlfriend

Crazy good, I remember after realizing it was about his gun, I listened to this song on repeat for days

This song on the 61st number of the list? Are you joking? This is one of the best song ever!

I jux love you 2pac

My favourite is when he's fingering his hot.

34 Holla at Me

Holla at me was by far his best song it hypes you up but is so deep.

This song is really really good and smooth

This song is so great man

Top 5 in my opinion
touches on the 3 sides of Pac and his flow is mesmerizing. But I guess that's pretty much proved in all his songs.

35 How Do U Want It

Classic the beat the flow and Pac kills the track like its nothing very hot check out the xxx video version my god lol but in truth it's my 50th fave song real favorites are ones that hit me in my soul shivers in my body and shed tears my cheeks like only fear of death troublesome 96 never be peace still I rise whats next only god can judge me letter to my unborn child letter 2 the President ALL OG VERSIONS of course my point is how amazing this man was that 50th track is better than anybodys else top track 2Pac was special guys that my uncle whos Bosnian bumps Pac tells you everything ONE OF A KIND forever!

How Do you Want It at #63?! Lolol. What's wrong with you people? This is his best song by far! Best damn rap song ever made! Makes California Love sound like a boring opera song.

Words cannot describe how awesome this song this is.

Way to low tf bring up to #10 tf is wrong with you retards - JCchrom3

36 Soldier Like Me (Return of the Soulja)

One of the best oldies from the dayz, this here should be in the top line song

37 Let Em Have It
38 Lost Souls
39 U Can Be Touched
40 My Block

Amazing flow, I suggest you listen to the DJ Billy remix; 'Forever High. '

Life is but a dream - this is one of his greatest and most touching songs out. Rest In Peace Pac, you may be gone, but not forgotten

Absolutely one of the greatest song ever written by 2pac

This is one of my favorite tupac songs.

41 Black Cotton

Black cotton first verse is amazing.I wish I could find Black Cotton(2pac) and 25 to life(eminem) mix

42 Picture Me Rollin'

Should be way higher.. Big Sky kills it on this song.

Don't worry, most of the voters just learned about pac and have only heard his top hits, they'll come around.

Picture me rollin' in my 500 benz...

Should be in the top 10 the ryhrmes and the beats are amazing

43 Heartz of Men

This needs to be in the top 10. If you haven't heard this song, listen to it.

Dj Quik murders this beat and 2Pac murders these lyrics. This is a highly underrated track - Mcgillacuddy

Absolutely amazing beat. Way too low

This should be at least top 5 if not 3

44 Wonda Why They Call U Bitch

Should be compulsory for all late teens to listen to this. On point, one of his best messages/lyrics. Educational.

2pac is the bet

Great messafe

Always liked the lyrics. Talks to women. Keep their legs closed. As a female. His lyrics come to mind. All this time later even.( If he can’t learn to love ya. You should leave him. Keep ya head up ) actually thought of this as I ended a relationship going no where last week

45 Ghost

Can't believe it wasn't on the list. This is a phenomenal song!

A real thug song

Great Beat!

Illest put there, it's got an awesome heavy beat and a gangster theme u must listen to it

46 All About U

I know right, I guess the majority have only heard his big hits

This is an amazing song, why is it so low, I can't belive this. All eyes on me is the best selling album of 2pac. People should listen to this song. It is really great.2pac is the best hiphop artist of all time. No one can replace him.

Nate dogg,snoop dog,and 2pac are the greatest trio there is and should be higher

Smooth, and good recording quality unlike most of the songs on this list which were made after he died.. Swear someone's got a business interest in making some these songs so high up the list. This is actually a good song! And how is "Shorty Wanna be a Thug" at #114 and even worse "Wonda Why They Call you Bitch" ain't even on the list?! If every hooker heard that song there wouldn't be any hookers left!

47 Teardrops and Closed Caskets

I love this song. Why is it so low.

48 They Don't Give a F*** About Us

Some say they expect illuminati take his body to sleep...

Speaks the truth, something that is in heard of now.

Number 1 all the way!

49 Bomb First

Such an eerie beat, it's amazing I love this song!

The best and why its not in this list is pretty surprising. Well nown here it is

Probly the best song other then California love

Dope as hell song, it gos hard aas hell.

50 I Wonder If Heaven Got a Ghetto

Great anthem against violence
