This death only happened 2 years ago and he's the King of Pop, so of course he's going to be missed the most.
I suppose he is missed by pop culture adherents, but musically his personal contributions don't equal 1/10th of John Lennon's.
He will be missed by everyone.
He will always be missed. His music will live forever, until the world ends. There will never be another King of pop like him. Nothing will ever replace him as he was born in the golden era, which no longer exists today. Whenever I think about him I feel sad. His songs "you are not alone" and "best of joy" always make me cry. On his death, nearly the whole world cried and shouted "why? " But we have to remember what Jacko taught us: "tell em that is human nature"

He wasn't just the greatest musician, he wasn't just the greatest dancer on planet 🌍, but he was a very kind, loving, caring, entertaining, dashing, decent, romantic personality - who loved every one. The thriller album will be up there, on top, for centuries.

Tupac was one of the greatest lyricists of all time and rap. Tupac was so missed that years later he has released more posthumous albums then anyone in the game. The words that he spread were of peace and equality in the world and especially in the ghetto. His lyrics touched the hearts of more youth than even Eminem and that's saying a lot. Since his death many M.C. S have tried to copy his style and swagger but no one can compare or replace him as a legend or a martyr of the rap game.
