September 13th 1996 Hip Hops Darkest Day

Image Hosted by
Its officially 12am September 13th on the east coast. Im not sure bout ya'll but i remember EXACTLY where i was when i heard one of the greatest rappers of out generation had past away. It was a Friday night & I was at my grandparents house for a visit & it came on the radio. I didn't here the anouncement, but i heard my aunt crying running out of here room screaming 2PAC DIED, 2PAC DIED!! I remember the feeling like someone punched me in the gut. I told my mother i couldn't sit there any longer & ran home telling everyone who I past that 2Pac was dead. My boys Del & Dana were already on my steps when i got home & hadn't heard the news yet. Thats all we talked about was "Remember Pac" this & "Remember Pac" that...just like it was one of our boys who died. Hot 97 started playing a continuous rotation of Pac jams that were comming out of every car & window in BK that night. I remember it like it was yeasterday.

Pac was & always will be my favorite rapper. Not cause of his skills or his voice. But because of what he did for hip hop in my generation. Remember....this is comming from a cat who live in Brooklyn ...Home of The Notorious BIG...and i still feel that way...and so do alot of BK headz. Pac was hip hop. 100% raw hip hop. So i dedicate the next 24hrs of this post to say R.I.P to one of the greatest MC's of our time.....R.I.P. Pac...i miss u homie!

Please share you stories about where you were when Pac died...or if you were playing with Linkin Logs give an RIP PAC! out of respect.
Here is a mix i put together of rare, unreleased & favorite Pac tracks......
1.)Pain 2.)Loyal To The Game (feat. Treach) 3.)Bury Me A G 4.)Gotta Get Mine 5.)Definition Of A Thug Nigga 6.)Young Black Male 7.)Thug Love (feat. Bone Thugs) 8.)Fuckin With The Wrong Nigga 9.)Never Had A Friend Like Me 10.)Only Fear Of Death 11.)Hell 4 A Hustler 12.)Made Niggaz 13.)Homies & Thugs (feat. Scarface & Master P) 14.)High Till I Die 15.)Staring At The World Through My Rearview 16.)Str8 Ballin 19.)Never Be Peace

If Tupac's material was really that good. Why does it have to endlessly remixed in order for people to buy it?

It should be able to stand on its own.

People dont want realized that he did hundreds of rushed, half assed and bad songs once Shug got him out of jail on that sex charge.

@ The Jackboyz...i feel you homie. Only headz who lived in Pac's time can really appreciate him. It's the headz who think they know what hip hop is buy listening to an album....but that aint being hip hop... They think they know what it is put the don't understand hip hop is not something u listen's something you live & respect.

I don't even listen to any of that REMIX crap that came after 96 & I think his original material sold pretty damn good in its day. This is not a debate keep your BS comments to yo self... if your not paying your respects just move on.

rip to 2pac, im not a big fan but what pisses me off is all these young cats saying they love pac but they only liked him when he was rollin with suge when he was wild back then,i personally liked his early material (1991-1995)when he was spittin real shit like tryin to bring back black people,awareness on teenage pregnacies (brenda's got a baby), songs like that, but they never paid attention, they just like the wild side of pac, but anyways i send my condolences to the shakur family,one love.

nice post crooklyn. can you re-up that Pac tribute on sendspace or megaupload?

no doubt Pac was dope & had a very big effect on hip hop. I think a lot of heads hate/d on him cause he was so popular. I've noticed a lot of the younger generation are not fans of Pac or Big. The shit they are being brought up on its not surprising.

& about the above post: its alright to discuss but that kid was dissing Pac on a tribute post & he didnt even know what he was talkin about. Pac didnt put out one bad album when he was alive.

RIP 2Pac

haha man people love tupac...i think most people just love his image and that sorta shit, because he was less skilled in the art of lyricism than most hip hop of his time. Jeru the damaja, d.i.t.c, organized konfusion, del tha funkee homosapien..shit they were dope and had their own style and bought something different to the terms ofmusic tupac was slighty above average and everyone will hate me for saying that but its true. He had the occasional dope beat but generally he was just another rapper not really sayin anything new..i could well be wrong but i think people loved his struggle and life rather than the actual music. Having said that songs like "trapped" off i think his first lP is one of my favourite songs..basically i think pac was a good MC that people got behind because of his personality and what he stood for. Anybody heard CHARIZMA,peanut butter wolf's old partner? he died bout 94 after one album..the dopest cat who only drank apple juice and dropped the illest verses..he had talent tupac never did but noone recognises real..SUBROC from KMD, another cat who was doper than pac. Instead of crying and bitching when u read this just take a minute to realise what im saying...but none of u will...Rip Subroc, Rip Scientifik, Rip J Dilla, Rip Charizma, Rip Big L, Rip Chi-ali AND RIP TUPAC.
