According to your profile you were 5 months old when 2Pac died. You'll forgive me if I don't put a lot of weight in your assessment of this one.

I assume those also born five months after Tupac died, or maybe they were three when California Love was released?

Either way it's hard to say. I'm sure something great has come from each decade. I've been listening to A Tribe Called Quest and these guys were pretty talented. I'd say 90s but admittedly I haven't listened to anything from the 80s (that I can remember being from there) aside from 3 Feet High and Rising. Which, I admit again, I have not listened to thoroughly or enjoy very much to want to.

He's right, rap wasn't the same. Was it worse? Not necessarily, though the state of rap did definitely change after 2Pac/Biggie's premature deaths. And for the record, I prefer 90's rap pre-2pac death.

Aren't you another one who would have been too young to remember?

It's true that hip-hop evolved over the course of the 90s, just like it has over the 80s and the 00s, but Tupac's death wasn't some big turning point that caused things to change overnight. There was some great rap music, and some utter garbage, released both in the early 90s and the late 90s.
