Massively overrated. Yeah, he died of a mindless violent crime that never should have happened. I think it is equally mindless to idolize him the way the hip-hop community has. I dont have anything against the hip-hop community though, I think the same could be said for people such as Kurt Cobain and the likes. All massively overrated just because of their unfortunate deaths.
the thing is that Kurt Cobain couldnt write good lyrics.
Tupac wrote some of the best poetry out there.
