In retort to that Lu photog, I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that Pac took ballet lessons for a few years... : (

He was in a private-ish school for his teen years. Kinda like a cool of arts. A huge opportunity for him. He talked about liking Shakespeare and other books as a kid. (I'm gonna try to find audio).

Pretty dope stuff.

I love pac more than I like Lupe. But y'all can't say Pac hasn't worn some weird ass fits before..

Wow, you've presented a really well thought out, and coherent argument...Not much to say to that...

I'm not knocking on Pac for taking ballet, what I'm saying is don't hate on Lu for wearing some riding boots, while your Thug Life Champion was getting his Billy Shakespeare, and ballet on.

I don't even know how this comparison came about. Lyrically they are different, stylistically they are different. Nothing warrants comparison between the two. I feel Lupe is one of the best lyricists past or present. Pace I don't think tries to hard to make witty lines, I think his music was more about raw emotion and saying whatever he needed to say to portray the way he was feeling. Two different rappers in two completely different eras.

Crazy comparision but Lupe is deep. His first album was an instant classic. One of those albums where every song was good. I like how he adds concepts to his albums as well so you can't say he was rapping about the same things. The Cool had such a deep concept behind I still don't know what it is.

I agree. It's a weird comparison and probably shouldn't even be made.

But that being said, Lupe easily became one of my favorite rappers after I first heard him. I can't wait to get that new album.

That's Lupe's whole appeal. "I'm going to be so deep and complex people arent even going to know what the fuck im talking about". 2pac wanted the fans to relate through emotion, not getting them lost in super complex shit. Just cause you dont understand it doesnt mean that its good.


most people who dont understand usually do think that there the shit but lupe does make since and its usually not that complex like 5 songs on his album will be complex and the rest are just dealing with a issue or something else but im with you on tupac wanting to relate its easy to see he has made a change in the world as lupe really hasnt

Lupe even said himself that his shit is so complex that its going to take years to completely decipher. But anyway, this is the wrong place for this type of comparison. This is like Lupe's headquarters, he started out on Hypebeast, even posted here and had a blog, of course hes going to win this comparison.


lol truth its kinda bias here and does it even make since to compare the two artist?

hard to say, I liked alot of 2Pac's stuff, but overall I'd say that Lupe is molding himself into one the rappers of the decade. Both his albums were good, and LASERS and LUPE.N.D. will probably be good as well.

unreleased Pac and Snoop song.
Beat and hook are coolcoolcool
I heard that the verses were freestyled or that he was just messing around.
still dope nonetheless.

Lol. That's the most ridiculously arrogant statement. Lupe thinks he's writing some glorious manuscript or something. I don't think it;s going to take a scholar to determine what the meaning of "Sunshine" is.

it's way too early to say that he's better. there's no denying that he has a unique talent and that he's different than most rappers
