Question Of The Day: How Would Rap Be Different If Tupac Were Alive?

08.08.12 5 years ago 67 Comments

Hip-hop discussions have a habit of becoming summits or straight up wars whenever Tupac’s name enters the fray. He’s been gone 15+ years yet still creates a polarizing effect on folks and their views on rap music. The late phenomenon sets the stage for the latest Question Of The Day: how would rap be different if Pac were alive and well? Moreover, where would he be, as a person and artist? Even better, who gets put on or who doesn’t enjoy the careers they revel in today?

Realize, before you reply in the comments, talking about Tupac is like speaking on a lost brother or cousin for some heads. Just don’t get agitated like the Keef kid and everything should be straight.
