I used to listen to Tupac religiously as a kid. My tiny young mind was blown to hear something so raw and real - it thrilled to hear tough subjects and complex ideas spat out so smoothly, rolling off this guys tongue casually between quips about how he slept with Faith Evans behind B.I.G.'s back (he phrased it somewhat less delicately 😏).. He was someone who got me thinking, who woke me up. Why DO we have money for wars but not to feed the poor? Why is it all 'just the way it is?'
I still haven't switched off, all these years later. An enigma to the end, Pac changed the way I listened to music, and looked at the world.
Don't let the realest part of you whither away. Feed what makes you feel. Live like you're really here. 👊🏽🌍🎤
