Tupac was one of the greatest all-around talents our nation has ever seen. Some may see that as merely biased exaggeration, but it's true. Rapping was obviously a skill that he was blessed with, but he was a truly great actor, poet, and leader who possessed a glowing charisma. Many don't realize what a great, honest, and influential figure he was, which is very sad. Also ofimportance, he was very popular with and respectful of women, which further added to his mass appeal. It's hard to say how much he could of done if he would have lived past such a short 25 years.
I love Tupac, and his great influence on me has changed my ideal of what qualities a person should embody. People need to keep him alive in their hearts, and thankfully we'll be aided in doing so through all his music which is still unreleased.
There are a lot of people out there who say they are huge Tupac fans, but many just listen superficially to the music without knowing what or who is really behind the words. Here's a test I came up with: If you can listen to "So Many Tears" without getting teary-eyed and emotional (as I always do), then you are not a true fan of the man and legend, Tupac Shakur.
