I'd have to agree with this completely.

Re: Tupac or Biggie

We're talking about their music, not their personal lives.

Can we really separate them? Their lyrics included the same glorification of drugs, sex, murder and violence as their lifestyles.

I think the football equivalents would be Pacman Jones and Lawrence Phillips.

Re: Tupac or Biggie

What would say about songs like Changes(Tupac)? Just ignore those, huh?

Their songs also reflected their backgrounds and upbringing. Reality often isn't a pleasant thing to look at or hear about.

Irrelevant.

I can appreciate the art even though I may not agree with the lifestyle of the artist. Again we're talking about two separate things.

That's an issue much bigger than music, and not something a song or video is going to fix.

Tupac, I don't care what he claimed he was from the east coast.

No one, is perfect but when it comes to music Pac is as close as it gets. He is poet and if anyone liking his music bothers you that's on you.

Maybe you should have listened to more hip-hop so you would know how to spell and understand homonyms. Wrap? Seriously?

Anyhow, completely disagree with your generic post about their music.

Agreed, you can't really separate music and there lives. Jim Morrison was a great musician but also a drunk and it cost him his life. These guys are ultra talented but we should glorify them realizing the affect they have on their fans. Yes, kid's are influenced by these guys, just as fans were influenced by Jim Morrison just for example.

You're not going to bash this toileting of the English language too?
