I was watching Tupac Resurrection and one part he was talking about the period in time when he nearly started an uprising with THUG LIFE as it's ground bases.
He had a group of people who were overlooked and pushed to the side by every one due to the fact that they have nothing a resorted to violence as a way of life.
They understood his words and felt like "hell yea I can relate to what he is talking about; SO they jumped behind him and was ready to march behind him and do whatever he asked to empower them. He was even one of the first people to get L.A. to bring a hault to some of their fighting.
But as most great revolutionaries he was murdered before it could see the light of day and his message was sabotaged and he was pitted against another black man who had the "hood" behind him.
The point I'm trying to make is that he reached out to the people who needed some one to reach out to them. He pointed out the flaws of the nation and was understood. Maybe he was to young but Fred Hampton was only 21 one when he started; me myself I am 23. He all so said he wasn't ready for that type of power he wasn't ready to be a leader on that scale because he had a larger back from folks that where in jail and where being released. He had a place to speak from and a listening audience of millions alas silenced to soon
but he left behind many albums and him saying this
"I may not change the world but I will spark the mind that does."
