2. ...dont really know what they are talking about to begin with (for example dudes talkin about Thug Life and have no idea what "Thug Life" represents)
3. ...are huge J**** fans( who was basically a nobody until Pac and Biggie were out of the picture)
4. ...probably havent really
listened to Pac massive library of music and analyzed every word like they would a Kanye album.
5. ...use unreasonable arguments to support their misinformed notions
IE: they talk about how Pac's persona was made up because he wasnt a thug(once again, not knowing what they are talking about because that's not what he meant by Thug Life) and then they turn around and listen to rappers whose persona is 99.8% fantasy fiction.
6. ...have no taste in music
I'm none of those things but then again I'm not sure who said Pac was overrated. Although since it was brought up; rapping wise, sure overrated but musically nah plenty meaningful and impactful music.
However, as far as I see it how he acted and what he said did not match up a lot.
I could just come with a NT extreme and say yall dudes just haven't got out of your Pac phase that most ppl move on after they're 16.

And it's not even open for discussion.
That's just common sense. Look at the amount of classics from the east during that period.
The West still struggling for an undeniable classic run with numerous artists with various styles. Dudes start and stop too much, come thru with Dre and Death Row, adopt Pac then go ghost without any other new talent until now (Game sucks so I aint counting him) and even then dudes a few years ago with a buzz have fizzled out and only Kendrick is left.
You can look at it as the West are the Knicks of hip hop while the East are the LakersEdited by Master Zik - 1/18/14 at 1:43am
