If this was Jeopardy the answer would read:
The two greatest poets of the English Language,
One was a playwright & the other a musician.
Of course the question would be: Who are William Shakespeare and Tupac Shakur?
His life will always be the voice of our generation, and his words are even more relevant today then ever before. He showed us the different sides of a man, and most people simply could not handle that fact. Everyone has been brought up believing this fairy tale story about mankind, but reality is beautiful and strange and magnificent. To be a man, is to be hundreds of different things all at once, and Tupac Shakur was all of those. He was a born Leader, and although he may have been given all this pressure and power at only 22 years young, he always knew what was coming for him, even when death was just around the corner.
The tragic part in all this, is the sad state our society has fallen into, where instead of embracing a brilliant rose from the concrete, we allow our fears – with the help of the media, who manipulates everything, and perpetuates racism and discriminates against anyone who speaks up against our system – we allow our fears to control our reason and somehow we lock up and kill these brilliant fearless people. The reason Tupac got into the trouble he did was because of the way he lived his life, as he said himself because of “his big mouth”. He always spoke his mind, and in this society, where he was surrounded with brainless sheep, it is always a dangerous game to play. Even though he had a big mouth, he also had a huge heart, and it is a loss to the world to lose a born leader,someone as good and creative as Tupac. One of the most tragic occurrences on this planet is that the Good Die Young, and the evil men live to be 90 years old. (Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Khomenei)
For all the controversy that this young poet had in his life, it should not come as a surprise that his death is still one of the great unsolved mysteries of our time. If someone was to sit down and listen to his music, especially the final albums, it is clear he is aware that death is coming for him, and it is almost prophetic the way he went about the last year of his life.It is still unclear what happened in his last night in Las Vegas, and still to this day, people around the world still hold believe that he faked his own death, and is living somewhere save and sound making music and writing poetry.
God Bless you Tupac Amaru Shakur, God Bless you wherever you may be.
hopefully you’re in Jamaica sippin’ daiquiris
