      Those lyrics are far from weird, they're some of the best I've ever heard.

      Black sheep slipped my mind. As well as the contribution Ice Cube made with his first 3 and maybe the forth solo cd's. but like all revolutionaries in blackface, he "came out of the closet"!

      Cause "gangstas dont dance they boogie".

And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor political, nor popular - but one must take it simply because it is right."

      Dont get me wrong because I appreciate Pac's art and his love for what he

      did. he said he was a thug and a gangsta and thats the image he portrayed

      to our youth..not a conscious M.C.. Pac's ignorant songs are overwhelming

      in numbers and content compared to his "conscious" songs. I would say Pac

      has convinced more bruthas to thug than he has to organize and identify.

      For every 1 so called conscious Pac song I could name at leats 3 counter-

      revolutionary songs. Now "Me Against The World" is a classic album and so is

      Killuminati. But thats all a matter of my opinion.
