Why Tupac is the greatest rap artist alive
- by admin
FourFourSeconds ago, a Twitter user asked me what Tupac’s greatest rappers are, and I had to share my answer.
“If you asked me,” he said, “I’d have to say Eminem.”
That’s because Eminem has made Tupac the greatest rapper alive for nearly four decades.
“He’s the greatest,” I said.
“You could say that about every rapper, but he’s the one who’s really held the crown.”
“The greatest?” asked the Twitter user, who identified himself as Aryan.
“I have to tell you, he’s not only the greatest, but the only one,” I replied.
“The other two are like, yeah, he was,” he continued, “but he’s still the greatest.”
“You’re not talking about Tupac,” I told him.
“This is his story,” Aryan replied.
In the years since Tupac was first inducted into the Hip-Hop Hall of Fame in 2003, he has amassed a reputation for both lyricism and lyrical prowess that rivals that of some of his contemporaries.
It’s true that his lyrics are generally simplistic, with many of his lyrics referring to drugs, violence, and gangsta rap culture.
But his contributions to hip-hop culture were profound.
When he first dropped his debut album, The Slim Shady LP, in 1990, it was a watershed moment for hip-hip culture.
As the first major-label rap album to be released in more than a decade, it set a new standard for the genre, which was then still mostly limited to underground labels.
The music also spawned two other iconic rappers, T-Pain and Future, and a slew of other artists, including Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg.
The rise of hip-hops helped catapult Tupac to the top of the rap charts, but his music had a much broader impact on the music industry.
He was the first rapper to record and release a single in 1993, and he was also the first to release a double-album in 1994, The Blueprint.
His album, Life Is Good, was released in 1995, and in the decade since, he helped redefine hip-Hop as a whole by winning Grammys and Grammy nominations for Best Rap Album and Best Rap Song.
Tupac made a big impression on both generations of fans, who have continued to recognize his greatness, whether through music videos or in art and other media.
The rapper’s image has remained largely unchanged, with the exception of the occasional video that features him in some capacity, but in recent years, he appears in some of the most iconic photos of him, including the iconic cover of the Rolling Stones album, In the Aeroplane Over the Sea.
In a recent interview with the Guardian, Tupac spoke about the influence his music has had on his life and career.
“Every day I wake up and I think about how I could have been a rapper if I had listened to music like that,” he told the paper.
“That’s the way I see it, that’s the only way I can describe it, and that’s why I feel like I’m a legend.”
Tupac continued to perform, which included appearances on BET’s The Breakfast Club and on the Late Show with David Letterman, which helped catapult his career in the music world.
In 2016, he announced his retirement from music, saying, “There’s no way I’ll ever be a big-time artist again.”
Tupachan, the name Tupac Tupac, has had more than 1,600 songs sold in the United States alone, according to Nielsen SoundScan, and the rapper’s career has had a dramatic impact on his legacy.
The word Tupac means “one who makes a name for himself.”
The Tupac family, which includes Tupac Shakur, Shakira, and his wife, Aaliyah, are considered the biggest and most successful families in hip-hopping history.
The Tupachans have owned and operated the Tupac Museum in Atlanta since 1989.
The museum has a collection of more than 2 million items including Tupac and Tupac memorabilia, artifacts, and videos, including his album and video for “Ghetto Boy,” which was released by Atlantic Records in 1998.
Tupach and his son, Lauryn, have also owned and run their own clothing line, Tupach Nation.
He also has a record label and a radio station, which he co-founded with fellow rapper Eminem.
Tupaclack, the Tupaclash family, the family name Tupaclacha, is a combination of Tupac (a nickname given to Tupac by his mother, Aula), the name of Tupahulu, the nickname of his mother.
Tupakac was born in 1961 in Atlanta, Georgia.
He moved to Chicago, Illinois, where he attended a high school known as the South Side School of the Arts.
Tupapac went on to attend a high-profile school in New York
