  1. What are you saying? Tupac and Malcom X aren't even close to sharing the same ideas… in fact Malcom X would probably really dislike Tupac… much of Tupacs raps are based on black on black crime, and being proud of it. That was not Malcom X's philosophy.

    Moreover, times change but idea's don't… Malcom X was also talking to blacks who couldn't read – while Brown v. Board of Education had recently been decided by the Supreme Court, there wasn't any significant change for decades.

  2. Have you ever read any of Malcom X's speeches? He spoke about black unity, Black Nationalism, and in the end… HUMAN RIGHTS.

    Tupac rapped about killing niggers, money, alazae and crystal, and then once in a while would give a speech or write a song about unity. But his actions spoke louder than his words. You obviously haven't listened to Tupac's music either.

    If you're black, you obviously need to study black public figures better.

  3. Malcom X preached Islam and Community. Pac preached money, power, GREED and then contradicted himself preaching about taking care of you mother and "Brenda" or something like that. Hmmmm no difference huh?

  4. most of you don't understand what Pac's aim was…this speech is 20 years ahead of its time…yea, he rapped about all that other shit…but he HAD TO GET YOUR ATTENTION STUPID!!! Brenda wasn't gettin' the right attention at the time…but when he started yellin THUG LIFE, niggas started listenin…then he sprinkled in the truth on top…

  5. @MrBAllen59 /// His ignorance was a concious attempt to grow his fan base with sales gaining fame and influence needed to start a revolution. With the album Makaveli he was just gettin started. I believe what he was trying to do is the real reason for him being killed.

  6. i love tupac, but some of what he's saying is just like… tupac you're obviously smart, stop ranting and start forming full detailed, publishable, legitimate arguments… some of what he's saying just sounds like crazy high bullshit… lots of emotion, lack of coherent, linear development of an argument. But he definitely loves his mom.

  7. WHAT THE FUCK HAS THIS WORLD COME TO..SHITT..IF U ACT LIKE AN IDIOT AND POST IT ON YOUTUBE U GET MILLIONS OF VIEWS BUT SOMEBODY LIKE TUPAC THAT TALKS REAL AND STATES THE REALITY PEOPLE ARE AVOIDING IT AND WANNA RUN AWAY FROM IT, THIS KIND OF EXPLAINS HIS DEATH IN MY OPINION..I DO REALLY FEEL SORRY FOR MY GENERATION AND THE NEXT ONE.

    IAM WHITE AND 24 YRS OLD AND I HAVE SO MUCH RESPECT AND LOVE FOR TUPAC THE LEGEND AND A TRUE RAPPER AZ WELL.

    SORRY FOR MY SPELLING PPL NOT GOOD AT IT

    RIP

  8. Reality is something that was best expressed by these icons… 2pac was not just a rapper nor a legend Hes the modern day prophet. I feel so sorry 4 niggas out there goin out in skin-jeans an' shit gettin influenced by muh'fuckerz like weezy an' the rest of his muh'fuckin crew. 'it takes skill to be real' let this b a lesson to ya'll hiphop artists out over there. Fuck yung money!!! Fuck Suge fuck Dre!

  9. You can't be serious… Back in Malcolm's day, the language of the times was vastly different. Hell, they had speech classes in school. If the people around you speak a certain way, then you're bound to speak like that as well. Put Malcolm in the same environment and time period, and he'd be speaking a similar manner as well, as would anyone.

  10. As much as I agree with everything Pac is saying, I want to know how many of us started to do what he's talking about. If anything we need to stop idolizing Pac and continue his legacy and movement by guiding the youth to really show love.

  11. this young brother was so wise before is time….21 years later and look at the state of our commnity…headless households with babies roaming the street to survive..As Tupac said, if you dont put nothing into to it dont be mad when it blow up….in our faces and thats whats happening..Peace Tupac, May Allah be pleased with you

  12. and its funny because I actually went to go see a woman that was a member of the black panthers speak and she mentioned how sometimes during the speeches, the men made it plain and sometimes curse words were used!…it didnt take away from the message or the passion. …it goes to show that people back then were better at seeing the BIGGER picture of things.

  13. So this is why he got shot. It's a great shame he seems to be a great person. Who knows maybe his death will some day be a rally call to those he was seeking to fight for to rise up and fight against a system that uses every method to kill and destroy them. RIP from Ireland to this young man

  14. It's nice that he acknowledges all the youth. Not just one people or race. It's really great. I am white but I've been homeless I've seen more than I'd like to. But he's right. There is no help for the youth now. I was part of the youth he was talking about and it ain't better for nobody.

  15. you know, im a christian.. obviously not a holy one like most self pro claimed christians are,aspecially the church ones… no offense..its all love.
    a few years back when i was i church going religious christians i was thinking about tupacs interview with vibe… where he was talking about god and the church… i kind of judged him in my mind because eventhough i was a tupac fan since i was a youngster i was also a new born christians… so listening to tupac as a RELIGIOUS christian i was like wow… this interview where pac was pretty much exposing SOME churches… i was thinking like damn,he was far away from god.
    He was never with god.
    damn… but god… my god.
    It took me to pray,cry,Beg,breathe and most inportantly to LIVE the things he was telling us about.
    It's sad. But Tupac was right about religous people and SOME churches and just religious people in general. its breaks my heart. at least now i know the truth. and the truth shall set you free.
    Amen.

  16. I miss him. I miss hos words, his prophetic words, his drive, his anger, his love!! I get tears in my eyes thinking what kind of America would we live in if Mr. Tupac Amaru Shakur LIVED. yeah he was the best emcee, a beautiful man and soul but was that, just a man. A MAN WHO WAS CHANHING THE WORLD. it's such a shame. I hate he's gone. Damnit
