Wu-Tang Clan icon RZA recently gave his own thoughts regarding the legacy of Tupac and The Notorious B.I.G. His comments come after the Fat Joe recently called DaBaby the Tupac of 2021.

Hip hop fans immediately took to social media to sound off on the comments, providing their own opinions on Tupac’s legendary career. RZA has now entered the chat and weighed in with his own thoughts on Tupac’s greatness. In a recent chat on The Art of Dialogue, RZA shared why he thought Tupac was more “dangerous” than Biggie as a hip hop artist, “Then you go to Pac, once again, immaculate voice, but what Pac had, I think, was a way of touching us in all of our emotions. Like, Pac had the power to infuse your emotional thought, like ‘Brenda Has a Baby,’ ‘Dear Mama,’ but then he had the power to arouse the rebel in you. You know? And those two things—actually, he was probably more dangerous than Big, Notorious B.I.G.”

RZA continued to explain, “Notorious B.I.G., we could party with him, to this day we’re still…but Pac, we’re probably, going to point, he was more going into the Malcolm X of things and society fears that.” RZA also alluded that Tupac is “really good at communicating love and starting revolutions,” while Biggie can do so but with less of the revolutionary impact.
