Remembering 2Pac Sitting back just thinking of every artist that I’ve encountered rather physically or mentally. I can say hands down out of that list, 2Pac impacted me the most. It wasn’t about none of his amazing rhymes, It was more of his humbleness and sensitivity toward society, just being a God fearing creature, even through his roughest times. Yes he has made plenty mistakes, but who hasn’t. Sometimes as humans we tend to only focus on the bad in a person, when their good, actually outweigh the bad tremendously. We are so negative as people at times that we let his Thug life songs over take our vision on him as a person, to the point where we forget about “Brenda’s got a baby” or one of my strong Queens Shanae Davis Favorite “Who do you believe in” those tracks spoke volume of his true character and touches many souls, even as you’re reading this, long after he’s been gone…
2Pac was a hard working Young King that always strived for better, not just for self, but as a nation. His pride-fullness as a King caused him the inevitable end, to suffer and get his head cut off in a metaphorical sense. At a time in life, he had us all screaming Killuminati, never knowing what it meant and the force that the term carried behind it. He lived to make a change in life and in his words he knew it wouldn’t be him to actually do it, because he basically prophesied his death throughout his Makaveli album, but he also aforementioned that his teachings will wake up a nation of people that’s gone, a new wave of awakened people that will carry his vision on through the future. I am proud to say that I’m a part of that nation that lives for righteousness. 2Pac recorded 3 songs a day average when not with family or on tour.
While he alive and kicking he also devoted countless of hours towards writing Poetry, which was his main love, you can tell that he dedicated his self to it, because you can hear it all over his lyrics when he blessed a track, everything is poetic, even when he’s dissing you it’s poetically written. Personally I feel that if he was still here amongst the living, a lot of this new trash music that is stagnating the airwaves would have never been born, aborted, before it reached the surface and touch our ears. Truth is, the game needed him, he can’t be here with us physically anymore, but if you’re a real 2Pac fan and you know the value of his Vision, then we as a whole have to be the vessels to carry it out to the future, why let the knowledge and wisdom that he spread to us stop at our generation. It’s crazy because 90’s babies don’t even know 2Pac and he is probably one of the reason why half of them are here, because their Mothers and Fathers listened to Pac and figured they want to Get around, laugh out loud, But on the real though, we at musiqplug.com/marvel felt it was only necessary to pay homage to such a great leader, poet, icon, prophet, activists, the list goes on…
2Pac I personally thank you for your words and on behalf of all the Kings and Queens out there in this massive but small world. Your words have truly helped and inspired us, I want to thank you. Happy 43rd birthday 2Pac Amaru Shakur.
I’m going to leave you with this question; Who do you believe in…?
Thanks for tuning in!
