Niggas Talk a lot of shit but thats after we're gone
cuz they fear us the the physical form let it be known
"You dont know me, you just met me, well if i couldnt have it..silly rabbit,
why ya sweat me"
The Only Thing That Comes to A Sleeping Man is Dreams"
gonna be some stuff u gonna see that's gonna make it hard To smile in the future, but through whatever you see, Through all
the rain and all the pain, you gotta keep your sense of humor. you gotta be able to smile through all this bullshit"
"Let me say for the record, I am not a gangster and never have been. I`m not the thief who grabs your
purse.I`m not the guy who jacks your car. I`m not down with the people who steal and hurt others. I`m just a brother who fight
EVEN THOUGH I'M MARKED FOR DEATH, I'MA SPARK TILL I LOSE MY BREATH"
gone, fuck friends, i need a homie that know me when all these mothafuckin cops be on me."
TRAPPED IN THA MOTHERFUCKIN' STORM
"Everybody's at war with different things...I'm at war with
my own heart sometimes".
Tupac Shakur "All good niggers, all the niggers who change the world, die in violence. They
don't die in regular ways." Tupac Shakur in Details magazine interview, spring 1996.
Reality is wrong. Dreams are for real.
Tupac Shakur I believe that everything that you do bad comes back to you. So everything that
I do that's bad, I'm going to suffer from it. But in my mind, I believe what I'm doing is right. So I feel like I'm going
I put the pistol by my head, and say a prayer. I see visions of me dead,
Lord are you there?
"Live by the gun die by the gun."
Oh Lord, help
me change my ways, Show a litlle mercy on judgement day, It aint me I was raised this way, Never let em' play me for a busta,
Makin' hell for a huslter.
Tupac Shakur A coward dies a thousand deaths; A soldier dies but once.
rather die like a man than live like a coward.
Tupac Shakur I'm just as guilty for not doing anything as I am for doing things. Not with
case (the 1994 sexual abuse conviction), but just my life. I was so scared of this responsibility that I was running away
from it. But I see now that whether I show up for work or not, the evil forces are going to be at me. They're going to come
Imperfection is inherited, therefore we all sin, but fighting the war of sin is
the greatest war of all because we all die in the end no matter how hard we fight.
Tupac Shakur "When my Heart Can Beat No More I hope die for a principal or a belief
that I have lived for"
Even though i'm marked for death, i'm a spark till i lose my
Tupac Shakur Only God can judge me.
I thought i had friends but in the end n*iggaz dies lonely.
Tupac Shakur Picture Me Rollin
My only fear of death is comin back reincarnated.
Tupac Shakur We talk a lot about Malcom X and Martin Luther King JR, but It's time to be like
them, as strong as them. They were mortal men like us and everyone of us can be like them. I don't want to be a role model.
I just want to be someone who says, this is who i am, this is what i do. I say what's on my mind.
The only thing America respects is power and power concedes nothing. After
the LA Riots, they tried to calm us down and nothing changed since.
Tupac Shakur I am societies child, this is how they made me, and now im sayin what's on my
mind and they dont want that. This is what you made me America.
Though are hands are chained like they are, they haven't taken music from
us yet. So that's how I'll fight. People tell me don't quit like everyone else. I wont have no fear.
Tupac Shakur The only thing that comes to a sleeping man is dreams.
The american dream wasn't meant for me, cause lady liberty's a hypocrite
she lied to me, promised me freedom, education, and equality never gave me nothing but slavery but now look at how dangerous
you made me callin me a mad man because im strong and bold.
Tupac Shakur Let me say for the record, I am not a gangster and never have been. Im not the
thief who grabs your purse. Im not the guy who jacks your car. Im not down with the people who steal and hurt others. Im just
a brother who fight back.
Let the Lord judge the criminals.
Tupac Shakur Life's a wheel of fortune and it's my chance to spin it.
Support me... If you don't understand me don't write about me
Tupac Shakur Suge is the boss of Death Row, the don, you understand? But im the underboss,
the capo. That's my job to what's best for Death Row
I never thought I was the best rapper the best nothing'. I think I'm the
realist nigga out there
Tupac Shakur People might be, like, "This niggas conceited," but fuck it. I feel like I shine.
And I don't give a fuck how many white people, the Media, black people, playa haters, police, whoever, try to darken my shine,
Im'a always shine through
All I can say is I always try to be a real nigga in my heart. Sometimes its
good, sometimes it's bad; but its still us. Its never to hurt anybody
Tupac Shakur I truly believe I've been blessed by God, and God walks with me
If you walked by a street and you was walking a concrete and you saw a rose
growing from concrete, even if it had messed up petals and it was a little to the side you would marvel at just seeing a rose
grow through concrete. So way is it that when you see some ghetto kid grow out of the dirtiest circumstance and he can talk
and he can sit across the room and make you cry, make you laugh, all you can talk about is my dirty rose, my dirty stems and
how am leaning crooked to the side, u can't even see that I've come up from out of that
Tupac Shakur Thug Life hit me like the Holy ghost.
Thug Life hit me like the Holy ghost
I smoke blunt to take the pain out and if I wasn't high I'd probably blow my brains out.
Tupac Shakur America, America, America, I charge you with the crime of rape, murder, and assault.
Things That Make Hearts Break
and people who dream with their eyes open
and souls who have given up hoping
The other things that break hearts
Are fairy tales
that dont come true
And selfish people who lie to me
selfish people just like you!!
One day I'm gonna bust, blow up on this society, why did you lie to me,
I couldn't find a trace of humanity.
Tupac Shakur My Mama used to tell me if u can't find somethin to live for, you best find somethin
to die for.
I don't bang for the color or the land. I bang for the principles and for
the honor. I'm bangin' for the Westside- this is in my heart, this is how I feel.
Tupac Shakur I was the truest nigga involved in Biggie's success.
Biggie is not a playa. He's never been. He's never had bitches until he got
some fuckin' money. That's a trick-that's not a playa.
Tupac Shakur Everything he wanna have-I got.
Biggie forgot. The same shit that made him wanna kick it with me is the same
shit that's whoopin' his ass right now.
Tupac Shakur I said it in the beginning. That I was gonna take them niggaz out the game and
sure enough I will. Already people can't look at Biggie and not laugh.
Can't nobody touch me right now. Maybe next month all of this will be over.
But this month I'm takin' every movin' target out.
Tupac Shakur Stole my lyrics. I stole his bitch. Took my rhymes. I took his wife. If he talk
all that shit about being a playa and I got his wife two days after I got outta jail- imagine that gangsta shit he's talking,
imagine how plastic that shit is.
How many bruthas fell victim to the street rest in peace young nigga there's
a heaven for a G, It'd be a lie if I told you that I never thought of death, My niggaz, we the last ones left, Life goes on...
Tupac Shakur Bury me smilin' with G's in my pocket
Have a party at my funeral let every
rapper rock it Let the hoes that I used to know, from way before Kiss me from my head to my toe
Gimme a paper and pen so
I can write about my life of sin, Couple bottles of gin, in case I don't get in...
Last year we poured out liquor for ya'll
This year nigga life goes on
We're gonna lock down Get money, evade bitches, evade tricks, give playaz plenty of space
And basically represent for you
Next time you see your niggaz we gonna be on top They're gonna be like damn them niggaz came up That's right baby,
life goes on
Tupac Shakur Maybe now niggaz feel me now
Picture my pain
Embrace my words
the world change
And still I smile nigga
Dangerous and ambitious while schemin' on gettin' riches.
I'm spittin' at tricks cuz I'm addicted to pretty bitches. Currency motivated, not easily terminated,
Now that we
made it, my niggaz can never be faded. This is my prophecy, I gotta be paid
All you cowards that try to stop me is
beggin' for early graves I thought we was cool I was a fool. Thinkin' you could be true, when I don't fuck with your punk
Tupac Shakur Your body is bangin' baby I love it when you flaunt it Time to give it to daddy
nigga now tell me how you want it.
I heard a rumor I died
Murdered in cold blood dramatized
me in my final state
You know mama cried
But that was fiction
Some coward got the story twisted
Like I no longer
I'm known worldwide baby
I ain't hard to find
Tupac Shakur Now on this ride there's gonna be some real muthafuckas and there is gonna be
some pussies. Now the real niggaz are gonna be the ones with money and bitches
The pussies are gonna be the niggaz
on the floor bleedin'. Now everybody keep you eyez on the prize cuz the ride gets tricky
See you got some niggaz
on your side
That say they your friends but in real life they your enemies And then you got some muthafuckas that say they
But in real life those niggaz will be the snitches
It's a dirty game ya'll
Ya'll gotta be careful about
who you fuck with and who you don't fuck with
Cuz the shit get wild ya'll
Keep your mind on your riches baby
your mind on your riches.
don't player hate don't discriminate participate before i punch you in your
face, cause you know i don't play..
Tupac Shakur Sheddin tears, reminiscin on my past fears
Cause shit was hectic for
It appears that I've been marked for death, my heartless
The underlying cause of my arrest, my life
And no rest
forever weary, my eyes stay teary
for all the brothers that are buried in the
I'm not the king. I'm not the teacher or nothing like that, but I feel like
I don't have no peers. l've been out les than a year, convicted of allegations that usually end niggas careers. Shot five
times in the nuts and the head. I came out and in less than a fuckin' year and outsold Biggie almost three times. I sold more
records than his whole fuckin' label.
Tupac Shakur I'm gonna change the rules in the rap game. You know, how, like politics, the
Republicans are in now; well, I represent that style; I'm the new nigga, I'ma shake up the whole Congress, by puttin' out
a double-album-that nobody ever did-I had the most expensive album on the Charts...and I outsold everyone of them muthafuckas.
And I did it in two months.
The real tragedy is that there are some ignorant brothers out here. That's
why I'm not on this all-White or all Black shit. I'm on this all-real or all fake shit with people, whatever color you are.
Because niggaz will do you. I mean, there's some [foul] niggaz out there [in the streets]; the same niggaz that did Malcolm
X, the same niggaz that did Jesus Christ- every brother ain't a brother. They will do you. So just because it's Black, don't
mean it's cool. And just because it's White don't mean it's evil.
Tupac Shakur To me, I feel that my game is strong. I feel as thought I'm a shining prince,
just like Malcolm, and I feel that all of us are shining princes, and if we live like princes, then whatever we want can be
There ain't nothin' like a Black woman.
Tupac Shakur My music is not for everyone. It's only for the stong-willed, the [street] soldiers
music. It's not like party music- I mean, you could gig to it, but it's spiritual. My musi is spiritual. It's like Negro spiituals,
except for the fact that I'm not saying 'We shall Overcome.' I'm saying that we are overcome.
I remember crying all the time. My major thing growing up was I couldn't
fit in. Because I was from everywhere, I didn't have no buddies that I grew up with...Every time I had to go to a new apartment,
I had to reinvent myself, myself. People think just because you born in the ghetto you gonna fit in. A little twist in your
life and you don't fit in no matter what. If they push you out of the hood and the White people's world, that's criminal...Hell,
I felt like my could be destroyed at any moment.
Tupac Shakur We are in the midst of a very dangerous, non-productive, self-destructive civil
war. And it's not just rap shit. It's ideals. And this rap shit is just bringin' it to a head. The East Coast believe one
thing, and the West Coast believer one thing. The East Coast got one way of life, the West Coast got another wayof life, it
always co-existed. We're coming to the turn of the century where we gotta mash together. But we can only do it one way, one
style. And that's what we're trying to figure out now, and I think the world is watching that.
To me, it reall y troubling because I took ouver at that's successful- Marky
Mark, Hammer, Vanilla Ice, New Kids On The Block selling twenty-two million copies, and I want that [kind of success] so badly,
but I can't do that. I would be wrong to do that, knowing what I know and having the brain that I have, for me to even go
and write some simple shit would be wrong even though I would get paid and I would get more people's money. I would rather
leave something so that when people pick up 2pacalypse Now or any of my other albums in 1999, they'll go, Damn! Brothers had
it hard back in the day, but brother were working it out.
Gangsta Rap is dead. I've moved on.
And the raps that I'm rappin to my community shouldn't be filled
with rage? They shouldn't be filled with same attrocities that they gave me? The media they don't talk about it, so in my
raps I have to talk about it, and it seems foreign because there's no one else talking about it."
Tupac Shakur If you know in this hotel room they have food every day and I knock on the door.
Every day they open tha door to let me see tha party, let me see that they throwin' salami, throwin' food around telling me
there's no food. Every day. I'm standing outside tryin to sing my way in- "We are weak, please let us in. We're week, please
let us in." After about a week tha song is gonna change to, "We're hungry, we need some food." After two, three weeks it's
like "Give me some of tha food! I'm breakin down tha door." After a year it's like, "I'm pickin' the lock, comin' through
the door blastin." It's like, "I'm hungry."
You reached your level, you don't want any more. We asked ten years
ago, we were askin' with the Panthers, we were askin' in the Civil Rights Movement. Now those who were askin' are all dead
or in jail, wo what are we gonna do? And we shouldn't be angry!?
I guarantee if people keep mm..supportin' me....Just buying my records,
goin to my concerts, just supporting me..I'ma keep givin' money....Like Makaveli, every time it go platinum, I'm putting money
up for community centers.
Tupac Shakur And now i'm like a major threat, 'Cause I remind you of the things you were made
There's no way I can pay ya back, but my plan is to show ya that I understand.
I didn't get that power from gunz..coz there's no gunz in jail..I got that power from
books and from thinking and strategizing...... That's what I want little niggaz to see.
Don't shed a tear for me, nigga I ain't happy here, I hope they bury me and
send me to my rest, headlines reading murdered to death, my last breath.
Tupac Shakur Mama raised a hellraiser why cry, That's just life in the ghetto, do or die.
My raps are a decision, rabble rousing, spiritual, like gospel music. I don't
want to dance. We have so many things to deal with, we need to talk straight up and down.
Tupac Shakur I don't see why everybody feel as thou that they gotta tell me how to live my
life (you know), Let me live baby, Let me live.
I believe that everything you do bad comes back to you. So everything that
I do that's bad, I'm going to suffer for it. But in my heart, I believe what I'm doing in my heart is right. So I feel like
I 'm going to heaven.
Tupac Shakur Our unborn never got to grow, never got to see what's, next, In this world full
of countless threats.
I don't advocate senseless violence of any human being. I'm the one who's
been beat down. But I will not be a victim again.
Tupac Shakur Fuck the fame, I still won't change, are you still down?
This is my prophecy, I gotta be paid, All you cowards that try
to stop me is beggin' for early graves, I thought we was cool I was a fool, Thinkin' you could be true, when I don't fuck
with your punk crew.
Tupac Shakur How many bruthas fell victim to the street rest in peace young nigga there's
a heaven for a G, It'd be a lie if I told you that I never thought of death, My niggaz, we the last ones left, Life goes on.
I heard a rumor I died, Murdered in cold blood dramatized, Pictures of me
in my final state, You know mama cried, But that was fiction, Some coward got the story twisted, Like I no longer existed,
Mysteriously missin', I'm known worldwide baby, I ain't hard to find.
Tupac Shakur Walked in the store what's everybody staring at, They act like they never seen
a mutha fucker wearing black, Following a nigga and shit, Ain't this a bitch, All I wanted was some chips.
God come save the youth
Ain't nothin else to do but have faith in you
Lord I live the life of a Thug, hope you understand Forgive me for my mistakes, I gotta play my hand.
Tupac Shakur They claim that I'm violent just cuz I refuse to be silent.
You know it's funny when it rains it pours, They got money for wars, but can't
feed the poor.
Tupac Shakur Mr. Police, Please Try to see, That there's a million muthafuckas stressin' just
So many other things for us to see, Things to be, Our history so
full of tragedy and misery.
Tupac Shakur I guess cause i'm black boy, I'm supposed to say 'peace', sing songs, and get
My only fear of death is comin back reincarnated.
Tupac Shakur They should've shot me when I was born, Now I'm trapped in the muthafuckin' storm.
We ain't meant to survive, cause it's a setup, And even though you're fed
up, Huh, ya got to keep your head up.
Tupac Shakur It's kinda hard to be optimistic, When your homies lying dead on the pavement
They say it's the white man I should fear, But it's my own kind doin' all
the killin' here.
Tupac Shakur I'm tired of being a nice guy, I've been poor all my life, but don't know quite
I struggle to be rugged and raw dude, trying to survive in the trials and
lawsuits, Everybody wants to test me, WHY ME?
Tupac Shakur Dont blame me, I was given this world, I didn't make it.
I was raised in this society so you can't expect me to be a perferct person
cause Ima do what Ima do.
Tupac Shakur Don't ever stop, just push until you hit the top, and if you try, atleast you
know you gave your all, be true to you, and that way you can never fall ... be true to you, believe that there is no one bigger,
cause they can all suck dick.
The only thing that comes to a sleeping man is dreams.
Tupac Shakur And I hope I'm forgiven for Thug Livin when I die.
While I'm dreaming, Wake up screaming, Cuz I can hear them suckas scheming.
Tupac Shakur I ain't racist but lets trade places.
A thug nigga drinkin hard liquor, This ghetto life has got me catchin up
to God quicker.
I bring truth to tha youth tear tha roof off tha ol' school.
No longer living in fear, my pistol close in hand, Convinced this
is my year.
Tupac Shakur They wanna censor me, they ratha see me in a cell, livin' in hell, with only
a few of us to live to tell.
He was a nice middle class nigga, But nobody knew the evil he'd do when he
got little bigger.
Tupac Shakur Goin insane, never die, live eternal, who shall I fear?
Study your lessons, don't settle for less.
Gettin high, livin' everday, like i'm gonna die.
Yo get a real job. Rappin doesn't pay the rent
I hate the studio cause
that's where all my money went.
Questions for the lord, why he don't like me, guard my soul, Though my life was hard
with no remorse.
A thug nigga drinkin hard liquor, This ghetto life has got me catchin
up to God quicker.
First ship them dope, let them deal to brothers, give them guns, step back and watch
them kill each other.
I'm tired of being a nice guy, i've been poor all my life, but
don't know quite why, so they label me a lunatic, could care less death or success, is what I quest cause i'm fearless.
This fast life soon shatters, cause after all the lights and screams,
nothing but my dreams matter.
Stabbin for a fee, it gets hard on the fuckin streets, It's like a madness,
fuck making gravy
I rhyme and do crimes, cuz either way pays me A little rough with a hardcore... theme
something rougher in your dreams.
Tupac Shakur As far as jealousy, being a celebrity,
No matter who committed the crime,
they all yell at me. And the media is greedier than most. You could sell em your soul and they'll be on ya till a nigga's
And everyday I read the paper, there's another lie. They show my picture for the crimes of another guy.
Never surrender, it's all about the faith you got don't ever stop, just push
it til you hit the top and if you drop, at least you know you gave your all be true to you, and that way you can never fall.
Tupac Shakur Money made me evil, court cases got me stressed Niggaz aimin at my head but I
still wear my vest.
"Now I was born alone, took my first joint and I got high alone Now I'm an
Outlaw nigga, I never die alone.
Tupac Shakur Down to die, for everything I represent
Meant every word, in my letter to
You want us to fight your war
What the fuck I'm fightin for?
I ain't got no love here
I ain't had a check all year.
Tupac Shakur Burnin' churches, fearin' God
Who can be so cruel
We all ignorant to AIDS
it happens to you.
Thinkin with your brains blown that would make the pain go No! You got to
find a way to survive cause they win when your soul dies.
Tupac Shakur How can I survive? Got me askin white Jesus
will a nigga live or die, cause
the Lord can't see us in the deep dark clouds of the projects, ain't no sunshine No sunny days and we only play sometimes.
And still, the best of us build, and reach monetary gains. Some of us kill,
but still, most of us can change.
Tupac Shakur Even as a little seed, I could see his plan for me. Stranded on welfare, another
And in turn I'm hostile guess you could call me anti-social. Niggaz
shakin like they caught the holy ghost when I approach em.
Tupac Shakur Even as a dope fiend mama. You always was a black queen mama.
You gotta make a change. Its time for us as a people to start making some
changes, lets change the way we eat, lets change the way we live, and lets change the way we treat each other. You see the
old way wasn't working so its on US, to do what we gotta do to survive.
Tupac Shakur Deloris Tucker
you's a muthafucker
instead of tryin' to help a nigga
destroy a brotha.
When I talk about money.
All you see is the struggle.
I tell ya, I'm livin' large
you tell me, its trouble.
Tupac Shakur Throw it up y'all, throw it up, Throw it up
Let's show these fools how we
do this on that west side. Cause you and I know it's tha best side.
And every breath I breathe untill the moment I'm deceased. Will be
another moment ballin' as a 'G'.
Tupac Shakur My only fear of death is reincarnation
heart of a solider with a brain to
teach your whole nation.
Went to church but don't understand it, they underhanded. God gave
me these commandments, the world is scandalous.
Tupac Shakur United we stand divided we fall. They can shoot one nigga. But they
can't take us all.
'Cause if God wrote the Bible, I'm sure there would have been a revised copy
now. 'Cause a lot of shit has changed. I've been looking for this revised copy.
I still see that same old copy that we
had from then. I'm not disrespecting anyone's religion, please forgive me if it comes off that way, I'm just stating my opinion.
Mr. Bob Dole
You too old to understand tha way tha game is told.
I can't give up.
It's a rap thang.
And I ain't goin back to the crack
Tupac Shakur I'm in jail now, but I'm free. My mind is free. The only time I have problems
is when I sleep.
That which does not kill me can only make me stronger.
Tupac Shakur If we really are saying that rap is an art form, then we got to be more responsible
for our lyrics. If you see everybody dying because of what you are saying, it dont matter that you didnt make them die,
it just matters that you didnt save them.
But I see now that whether I show up for work or not, the evil forces are
going to beat me. They're going to come 100 percent, so if I dont be 100 percent pure-hearted, I'm going to lose. And thats
why I'm losing.
Tupac Shakur How many niggas want to be involved,
see I was only talking Biggie
I'll kill all of y'all.
And did you ever stop to think that I'm old enough to go to war but I aint old
enough to drink.
Tupac Shakur I stop and stare at the younger, my heart goes to 'em, they stressed out and
It's going to happen. All good niggas, all the niggas who change
the world, die in violence. They don't die in regular ways. Motherfuckas come take their lives.
Tupac Shakur To me, it really troubling because I took ouver at that's successful- Marky Mark,
Hammer, Vanilla Ice, New Kids On The Block selling twenty-two million copies, and I want that so badly, but I can't do that.
I would be wrong to do that, knowing what I know and having the brain that I have, for me to even go and write some simple
shit would be wrong even though I would get paid and I would get more people's money. I would rather leave something so that
when people pick up 2pacalypse Now or any of my other albums in 1999, they'll go, Damn! Brothers had it hard back in the day,
but brother were working it out.
Why isn't it hip-hop when I do it? Everybody else can have beef within the
music, talk about differences and it's ok. It's music, it's hip-hop, it's ground breaking. When I do it, it's war.
Tupac Shakur If you walked by a street and you was walking a concrete and you saw a rose growing
from concrete, even if it had messed up petals and it was a little to the side you would marvel at just seeing a rose grow
through concrete. So way is it that when you see some ghetto kid grow out of the dirtiest circumstance and he can talk and
he can sit across the room and make you cry, make you laugh, all you can talk about is my dirty rose, my dirty stems and how
am leaning crooked to the side, u can't even see that I've come up from out of that.
I smoke blunt to take the pain out and if I wasn't high I'd probably blow
my brains out.
Tupac Shakur And the raps that I'm rappin to my community shouldn't be filled with rage? They
shouldn't be filled with same attrocities that they gave me? The media they don't talk about it, so in my raps I have to talk
about it, and it seems foreign because there's no one else talking about it.
Expose foes wit my hocus pocus flows, they froze now suckas idolize my chosen
Tupac Shakur Should we cry when the pope dies, my request we should cry if they cried when
we buried Malcom X
In the event of my Demise
when my heart can beat no more
I Hope I Die For A Principle
A Belief that I had Lived 4
I will die Before My Time
Because I feel the shadow's Depth
so much I wanted 2 accomplish
I reached my Death
I have come 2 grips with the possibility
and wiped the last tear from My eyes
I Loved All who
In the event of my Demise
- Tupac Shakur
Did you hear about the rose that grew from a crack in the concrete?
Proving nature's law
is wrong it learned to walk with out having feet.
Funny it seems, but by keeping it's dreams, it learned to breathe fresh
Long live the rose that grew from concrete when no one else ever cared.
- Tupac Shakur
Today is filled with anger, fueled with hidden hate.
Scared of being outkast, afraid of
Today is build on tragedies which no one want's to face.
Nightmares to humanity and morally disgraced.
Tonight is filled with Rage, violence in the air.
Children bred with ruthlessness cause no one at home cares.
I lay my head down but the pressure never stops,
knowing that my sanity content when I'm droped.
But tomorrow I see
change, a chance to build a new,
build on spirit intent of heart and ideas based on truth.
Tomorrow I wake with second
wind and strong because of pride.
I know I fought with all my heart to keep the dream alive.
- Tupac Shakur
that wil be the day...
when there aint no more guns bustin,
when there aint no more
when there aint no more thugin'
that will be the day when pac come back

i know you lived your life as a 'G'
and i know you was buried as a 'G'
but i wanna know
why you couldnt stay alive?
not just for me
but for everyone who cares about the human race
we still need you homie
still need to see ur face
you need to tell us whos right and whos wrong
we believe in you bcuz we know that u are strong
people hate u cause they dont understand
they cant see that God sent u hear to save us
instead they see you as another
nigga God sent down for them to bust
but i see it
i feel it
and i need it
i need the words from you
the words from God
why cant they see you were the you black jesus of our time?
why do all our masiyahs have to die?
live my life the way u taught
to bad you didnt live that way you could have lived
but you lived as a 'G'
now ur buried
as a 'G'
rest in peace till i get there pac
when i get there you have some thing to explain to me
- Tupac Shakur
They could never understand
what u set out 2 do
instead they chose 2
u got weak
they loved the sight
of your dimming
and flickering starlight
How could they understand what was so
2 be loved by so many, so intimate
they wanted 2 c your lifeless corpse
this way u could not alter the
of ignorance that they have set
2 make my people forget
what they have done for much 2 long
2 just forget
and carry on
I had loved u forever because of who u r
and now I mourn our fallen star
