    Who listens to classic Tupac? I cant stand modern hip hop and the fucked up releases of Tupac's previously unreleased tracks.

    mama don't cry, bury me a G'

    it would be a severe understatement to say i still listen to his music. it's practically all i listen to. it's insanely spiritual because you can really feel the realness and intensity he has. his music and poetry are some of the most inspirational things on this planet...which no doubt is why they have classes devoted to his work in schools like harvard and nyu.

    i will listen to his music until i am dead. it NEVER gets old...and has gotten me through a LOT of hard times.

    here is an excerpt from "me against the world" that a lot of people find highly inspirational:

    "With all this extra stressin
    The question I wonder is after death, after my last breath
    When will I finaly get to rest? Through this supression
    they punish the people that's askin questions
    And those that possess, steal from the ones without possesions
    The message I stress: to make it stop study your lessons
    Don't settle for less - even the genius asks-es questions
    Be grateful for blessings
    Don't ever change, keep your essence
    The power is in the people and politics we address
    Always do your best, don't let the pressure make you panic
    And when you get stranded
    And things don't go the way you planned it
    Dreamin of riches, in a position of makin a difference
    Politicians and hypocrites, they don't wanna listen
    If I'm insane, it's the fame made a brother change
    It wasn't nuttin like the game
    It's just me against the world..."

    still do and always will.

    His style and songs are 10000x better than any of the new bling blingy shit.

    Its not really my style. But I bust out the old albums now and then from back in the early 90's.
    Me Against The World is easily the best album in my book.

    Dear Mamma - classic stuff, still gives me chills.
    The only rapper I really had respect for.
    Changes is a classic also and most of the songs on MATW.

    The Brotherhood man, wat a time....

    I actually listend to Tupac last night for the first time in years.

    And I had forgotten how much emotion he had in his music. I was listening to some remix that was done with an unreleased track, and the verse they used was absolutely amazing.

    I love any of his stuff where he just snap's. He comes out so powerful when he lets it just flow, quick and loud and harsh. That's the Tupac I like. I just feel the emotion in his verses more than any other vocalist I've ever heard.
    (Minus Johnathan Davis on "Daddy", that was some deep and disturbing shit)

    It's funny that I found this thread. I'm a metal head. I listen to prog and black metal, but for some reason I totally dig Tupac, and he's pretty much the only rapper I listen to. I have his greatest hits double CD in my car at all times, and I've been listening to it a lot recently.

    More info about these University classes about his music, please.

    the classes are based moreso on his poetry, but also his musical lyrics.

    all i know is the schools that have the classes in the curriculum.
