Damn, take a ride to my block,
My block, thats right! Heh
F'real on my mutherfuckin block
Okay so its common knowledge that Tupac and Biggie are 1-A and 1-B when it comes to being the greatest rappers of our (or any other) time. The debate will rage on forever who is better but that isnt the purpose of this blog.
While there are good rappers out there in the landacape of Hip Hop today and while I personally like the beat of Soldier Boy, this doesnt pass or shouldnt pass for music or rap today.
What I think is IF these 2 were still alive, they would still be among the greatest and best rappers out there. Tupac's lyrics still have a lot of meaning today from the war in Iraq to teen pregnancy of african american teens (Brenda got a Baby).
While I am not as familiar with Biggie I still think he would be right there with Pac because he was a HEAVYWEIGHT in rap in every sense of the word.

These 2 rappers may not have invented it but they revolutionized it, and ruined it for these rappers today to even try and compete in the same genre as they 2 legendary lyricists....Because there is more to rap and Hip Hop than cash, guns, rims, women and.....Ya'all know where I was going, the place you wanna be at when the mood is right, the lights are low and the alcohol is kicking in
