25 YEARS LATER: These traces of 2pac still sting for so long after his death

Tupac Shakur has been officially dead for as long as he was alive.

Tupac Shakur

It has been 25 years since he was killed at 25.

Yet, even in 2021, some of his songs still sound that tone forever.

We share some of them

Brenda has a baby

Now Brenda has her own way
She can’t go to her family, they won’t let her stay
No money, no babysitter, he couldn’t hold a job
She tried to sell crack, but was eventually robbed
So now what’s next, there’s nothing left to sell
So he sees sex as a way to leave hell
He’s paying the rent, so he can’t really complain
Prostitute, found murdered, and her name is Brenda, has a baby

Keep your head up

I wonder why we take from our women
Why do we rape our women, do we hate our women?
I think it’s time to kill for our women
It’s time to heal our women, be real to our women
And if we don’t, we will have a race of children
Who will hate women, who make babies
And since a man cannot make one
She has no right to tell a woman when and where to create one
Thus will the real men rise
I know you’re fed up girls, but keep your head up

Dear mother

And running away from the police, that’s true
Mom take me, put a scream in my backside
And like a crack demon too, Mama
You’ve always been a black queen, mom
I finally understood
It is not easy for a woman to try to raise a man
You have always been busy
A poor single mother on welfare, tell me how you did it
There is no way I can pay you back, but the plan
It is to show you that I understand; you are appreciated

Ghetto Gospel

If I could remember my hood days earlier
I sit and remember, thinking about happiness and good days
I stop and look at the youngest
My heart goes out to them, they tested with the stress they are subjected to
And today things change
Everyone is ashamed of youth
because the truth seems strange

shed so many tears

Now there is nothing left,
There was pity in the streets,
I couldn’t rest, I’m barely standing,
About to fall apart, screaming for peace,
And even though my soul was erased, I couldn’t see it

Thugz Mansion

A place to spend my quiet nights, time to relax
So much pressure in my life, sometimes I cry
I once contemplated suicide and would try
But when I held that 9, all I could see was my mom’s eyes
Nobody knows my struggle, they only see the problem
Not knowing that it’s hard to go on when no one loves you
