Good music

Its been a tough week for me hence the slow posts but I'm gonna get nostalgic with my music and play some Tupac. He wasn't just a gangsta rapper to me. For me some of his songs are poetic and timeless. Songs like Brenda's got a baby, Wonder Why They Call You Bitch, Dear Mama, Keep you head up, Changes spoke to me and I apprecieated what they meant.

My brother's Strictly for my NIGGAZ, All Eyes on me and 2Pacalypse Now were never played out for me, even if there was a fair amount of profanity in there. I'd sit back and play back some songs just so I could learn the lyrics.

If asked who I'd list as the greatest hiphop artist of all time, I'd say it was Tupac.

Keep your head up (1993)

I pick this song because the lyrics say it all. Press play n have a listen

Dear Mama (1995)

Considered one of the greatest hiphop songs of all time. This was dedicated to his mother. Its a great song. You can't deny he wrote well and this song is a testament to that.

  1. some of the stand out lines for me from Keep Your Head Up:
    "And since we all came from a woman
    Got our name from a woman and our game from a woman
    I wonder why we take from our women
    Why we rape our women, do we hate our women?
    I think it's time to kill for our women
    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, that make the babies
    And since a man can't make one
    He has no right to tell a woman when and where to create one
    So will the real men get up
    I know you're fed up ladies, but keep your head up"

    I love that song!
