tupac- if you couldn't stand him it's because you didn't understand him. People were quick to point out all his music that put woman down but never the ones that uplifted someone...if all he saw was abuse and drug dealing, what else was he suppose to speak about? You can't rap about money and love if you never saw it or had it....
Tupac was a celebrity of the 1990s. He was one of the first successful rappers in America. He paved the way for future rappers such as Drake and Lil Wayne. He was iconic because he came from a poor family and grew to be extremely successful, which is what every American strives to be.
