Biggie is the better rapper technically, no doubt, but Tupac was a far more impressive artist overall.

I think he has already been b@stardised by his posthumous releases, no need for this hologram nonsense.

It amazes me when Lil Waynes make it big and Dead Prez's don't even get heard.
It's a shame, but most people just aren't smart enough or care enough to really recognize greatness. Popular music exists for the lowest common denominator, while stuff like Dead Prez is for those who love music, for those of us living the struggle.

Why can't a discussion about 2pac or Biggie ever take place without someone mentioning Biggie or 2pac?

Biggie told some interesting stories in his lyrics.
2pac rapped about his own experiences.

Why does one have to be better than the other? Especially when the two are so fundamentally different? Is it still 1996? I think we can appreciate both of them subjectively.

The east coast is full of bitches like 50 cent. The only decent east coast rapper was Biggie.

Big is the predecessor of Lil Wayne, commercialization, and candy rappers, Pac was a major factor in the rise of guys like Talib Kweli, the discussion of real life issues , and actual hip hop. Pac was popular way before the Biggie feud, which only played a small part in his overall career and driving message.
So what if pac delivered a message, sometimes. Most of his music is dull, and i really couldn't care less if he paved the way for even more boring conscious rap.

Saying "all" biggie's subject matter revolved around party and bullshit isn't true, either.



When i die i wanna go to hell
im a piss of shit it aint hard to tell

Pac does have a video of him walking around his living room, smoking a blunt, drinking champagne out the bottle, while simultaneously getting head from a lady. So theres that
