As I sat in juvenile hall, I worried and thought about 2Pac who was in intensive care at the time. I thought for sure he would survive the terrible tragedy which happened to him in Las Vegas.
Now that 2Pac has passed, his death really worries me because of the life he led. I always wondered when something went down with 2Pac (shootings, rape, running his mouth, and talking shhh in his raps) if it would come back on him?
I see his death as a tragedy, because he was a man who had been through most of the things I either witnessed or been apart of. I will miss his voice telling me how to deal with my community. 2Pac was the role model of the people I hang around . I used to be in the dope game real deep, so when I listened to 2Pac it would help me learn how to deal with the game and the people in this madness,
When I think of 2Pac , I think of life and how will I survive it? He spoke about the reality of my world.
I feel like 2Pac is the “king of rap,” like Elvis is the “king of rock n roll” he was a leader in the rap game, because he was his own person.
