nah just dont call these era rappers fake because of their personal life when pac personal life was obviously similar
The thing is every single artist is pushing an image. They magnify the traits that are cool or will sell and downplay the lame traits, which every single person has, real or fake. Some just fabricate all together. A lot of times it's the label that does this regardless of what the artist wants to do or represent. They pay big dollars to create these images. No one, absolutely no one, sells records just being themselves. At least not these days.
At the end of the day YOU don't know what their personal life is/was. You may get glimpses, you may speculate, you may buy into the image thats being sold to you or you may remain skeptical of it. To sit up here and act like you know is foolish. Furthermore, the fact that going to a particular school or having particular interests that don't relate to selling drugs/gangbanging/violence makes you not real. And also, that actually putting in work and committing crimes also doesn't make you real. It's like, wtf are you talking about then? What makes one real?
