  • Bash Bizzle

    No homo!

  • Toine

    ONly reason niggas say Pac the best is because that what the media says. Pac had a big impact but niggas was shittin on him lyrically. And niggas always say he was on that deep shit but Face was on that shit in 87 with the Ghetto Boys and that nigga is better lyrically. BIG gotta be the best rapper ever. Name another nigga that can do any type of song u can think of and that shit be tight. BIG would make a club song then make songs for real niggas and go holla at the bitches with a couple of tracks. No rapper was more diverse. Pac was that nigga but in my opinion he is not fuckin with BIG or Scarface.

  • ejiro

    I THINK PAC WAS N STILL S THE TIGHTEST M.C.IN THE WORLD.I LUVED HIM N AN OUT.

  • H-Man

    Damn, I got alotta tattoos, how about dat bitch Kalik. I got one of her on my arm. lolol Its a demon.

  • TIGERREDD

    2PAC is the greastest rapper of all time. Face is second on my list. Biggie was nice on the mic but at the end of the day music is poetry, if you take away the beats, Pac’s lyrics had more meaning to them. Biggie was special in his own right, but Pac was important for our revolution. He spoke from his heart and loved his people till the day he died, and would have become an influential leader for our community. Pac was a poet, an actor, a genious, and a leader who spoke his mind and came from his heart. There was no faking in his songs, “PAIN”,”DEAR MAMA”, “BRENDA’S GOT A BABY” “CHANGES”, “SO MANY TEARS”,”HOLLA IF YOU HEAR ME”,”TRAPPED”, “KEEP YOUR HEAD UP”,”Hail Mary”,”AGAINST ALL ODDS”, “WHITE MAN’S WORLD”,”STRAIGHT BALLIN”. This cat was talented and for anyone to say Biggie is better than Pac need to do their research, Biggie never touched on social issues in his music (hell, he was on BAD BOY with the dancing buffoon, Puff “shiny suit” Combs producing him, Scarface does rap on social issues, but Biggie never had anything to say that was important to our society and Afro-Americans lives. We lost a good brother (PAC) too soon and it seems like from history, all good black leaders die from violence. Anyone with a Pac tatoo get props from me. He should be remembered and part of the sales of this issue of the XXL should go to his mom and his foundation to uphold his legacy. Rest in R.I.P. PAC, the realest cat ever to touch the microphone and always left the MF smokin!
