Tupac's Thoughts on Romeo & Juliet
"...I love Shakespeare. He wrote some of the rawest stories, man. I mean look at Romeo and Juliet. That's some serious ghetto shit. You got this guy Romeo from the Bloods who falls for Juliet, a female from the Crips, and everybody in both gangs are against them. So they have to sneak out and they end up dead for nothing. Real tragic stuff. "
Tupac's Thoughts on Macbeth
And look how Shakespeare busts it up with Macbeth. He creates a tale about this king's wife who convinces a happy man to chase after her and kill her husband so he can take over the country. After he commits the murder, the dude starts having delusions just like in a Scarface song. I mean the king's wife just screws this guy's whole life up for nothing…

Coachella's Tupac Hologram
Infront of a crowd of 100,000 people at a Coachella Music Festival on April 15th 2012, a hologram of Tupac was created too perform "Hail Mary" and "2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted" along side the real life Snoop Dogg.
Tupac gained attention in the early '90's through underground rap and rap battles. Success became more apparent when he released his debut album, "2Pacalypse Now". He has been claimed to this date to be one of the rappers alive but also a great inspiration for people getting through the struggle and poverty. During his life time he was noted to be a great activist as well. His lyrics went beyond the beat but into a great meaning of how tough life can be and rapping about world issues. When he died, at a Mobb Deep Concert, the crowd started chanting, "Makavelli". He may be one of the most influential hip-hop artist ever.
Pac's lyrical style and voice is what set him aside from other artists in the game. He talked about real issues he grew up dealing with along with world problems in different countries with poverty. He spoke to the people in a rhyming manor that people could listen and relate too, letting them know that there is always a brighter side of things. He wanted kids to know that they shouldn't choose the gang life style and to do good in school. His music touched so many lives and left an everlasting imprint on Rap, the Music Industry and as an icon in society and modern life and music.
Similar Artist of Todays Age
Kendrick Lamar
Kendrick Lamar has slowly taken over the rap industry with his Compton background, being a lyrical genius, speaking what matters and having a flow all his own. It can be compared to that of 2Pac. Some people suggest he is the Tupac, and Joey Bada$$ is the Biggie Smalls of our generation. K.Dot, as he's often called, has released to albums, "Section.80" in 2011, and his most recent number 1 selling, "good kid, m.A.A.d. city" (GKMC) (m.A.A.d. = My Angels on Angel Dust or "My Angry Adolescence Divided"). In the beginning to his song "HiiiPower" there is a text talking about a dream he had as a 6 year old, talking to Pac.
"HiiiPower is one of Kendrick's classic songs dealing with the government and conspiracy theorys
This can be related to Tupac's "Ghetto Gospel" with Elton John where they talk about war on streets and Kendrick is dealing with global issues and US government conspiracy
