“What more can we say, we wouldn’t be here today if the old school didn’t pave the way.”
The impact of Tupac Shakur’s unique style to Hip-Hop culture is still evident today. His ability to express emotion and circumstance through verse demonstrated the brilliance that many artists have in common. Exposure to Hip-Hop music and B-boy culture in the late 80’s helped define Tupac’s character. The appeal of street culture can be seen in almost every aspect of society. Influential through fashion, street graffiti, music and Ebonics, Hip-Hop is now recognized on a global scale. The evolution of lyrical content has shaped rap music in a different form, from generation to generation. The privilege of experiencing his short career as an artist must be shared and remembered.
