That's your opinion, but I disagree. 2Pac was an extremely talented writer, and his music has lasted throughout the years because of his abilities as an artist. Although I think the "new" material they have been releasing the past few years is quite weak, most of his earlier albums were nothing short of brilliant. 2Pac will probably always be my favorite solo artist, and I respect him because of the talent he possessed.
I think you missed the point; he said nothing about liking/disliking the artist, just the hype that surrounds his death. To a degree, I always wondered how much of the hype/conspiracy theories/maintenance of the ongoing death stories are provided just to keep the post-humous albums rolling.
