Happy 40th Birthday Tupac

4:39 PM

Today Tupac Amaru Shakur would have been forty-years-old. In the years since his death we have seen one one his friends turned rivals killed, infamous Tupac sightings, talentless rappers trying to take his place, and what may be the end to one of the biggest Hollywood murders in the world. In memory of the late rapper, I've posted some of my personal favorites by the late rapper.

1. Dear Mama
 Who doesn't love this song? This touches the hearts of almost every mother in the world. There used to be a time where I couldn't listen to this song with actually tearing up, thinking of all the ways I hurt my own mother.

2. Keep Ya Head Up
The one thing I love about Tupac is his lyrics. He likes gave his fans advise through his music, whether it was warning about the realness of living a Thug Life or respecting respecting yourself. In this song, "Keep Ya Head Up" he gives his female fans some strong advise.
"And when he tells you you ain't nuttin don't believe him
And if he can't learn to love you you should leave him, 
Cause Sista you don't need him."

3. Do For Love 
I really love the style of this video. It was the first time I remember seeing a music video being animated like that.

4. I get around-
This song is my guilty pleasure. Most people wouldn't expect me to know the lyrics to this song or jump up whenever it comes on, but I love it!

5. Changes
Every time I hear this song, it always makes me thing about the changes I could be making in my life. Whether it's writing a post on time, finding a way to better my community, or just how to improve my everyday life.

What's your favorite Tupac song? What do you think of the recent news about his alleged killer coming forth? We'd love to hear from you!
