he would have been 34 today. gone but not forgotten. R.I.P
"June 16th, 1971...mama gave birth to a hell raisin' heavenly son
they say the doctor tried to slap me but I slapped him back
my first words were "THUG FOR LIFE!!!" and "PAPA, PASS THE MAC!!!"--2PAC
Happy Birthday Brother 2Pac..You would be only 34 today..such a beautiful man taken away from earth..so young..we miss you.. Wessiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiideeeeeeeeeeee
All Eyez on U
(for 2Pac Shakur 1971-1996)
as I tossed and turned unable to achieve sleep unable to control
anxiety unable to comprehend why
2Pac is not with us
if those who lived by the sword died by the sword there would be no
white men on earth
if those who lived on hatred died on hatred there would be no KKK
if those who lived by lies died by lies there would be nobody on wall
street in executive suites in academic offices instructing the young
don't tell me he got what he deserved he deserved a chariot and
the accolades of a grateful people
he deserved his life
it is as clear as a mountain stream as defining as a lightning strike
as terrifying as sun to vampires
2Pac told the truth
there were those who called it dirty gansta rap inciting there were
those who never wanted to be angry at the conditions but angry
at the messenger who report: your kitchen has roaches your toilet
is overflowing your basement has so much water the rats are in the
your house is in disorder
and 2Pac told you about it
what a beautiful boy graceful carriage melodic voice sharp wit intellectual
breadth what a beautiful boy to lose
not me never me I do not believe east coast west coast I saw
them murder Emmett Till I saw them murder Malcolm X I saw
them murder Martin Luther King I witnessed them shooting
Rap Brown I saw them beat LeRoi Jones I saw them fill their jails
I see them burning churches not me never me I do not believe
this is some sort of mouth action this is some sort of political
action and they picked well they picked the brightest freshest
fruit from the tallest tree what a beautiful boy
but he will not go away as Malcolm did not go away as Emmett
Till did not go away your shooting him will not take him from us
his spirit will fill our hearts his courage will strengthen us for the
challenge his truth will straighten our backbones
you know, Socrates had a mother she too watched her son drink
hemlock she too asked why but Socrates stood firm and would
not lie to save himself 2Pac has a mother the lovely Afeni had
to bury her son it is not right
it is not right this young warrior is cut down it is not right for
the old to bury the young it is not right
this generation mourns 2Pac as my generation mourned Till as we
all mourn Malcolm this wonderful young warrior
Sonia Sanchez said when she learned of his passing she walked all day
walking the beautiful warrior home to our ancestors I just cried as all
mothers cry for the beautiful boy who said he and Mike Tyson would
never be allowed to be free at the same time who told the truth about
them and who told the truth about us who is our beautiful warrior
there are those who wanted to make him the problem who wanted
to believe if they silenced 2Pac all would be quiet on the ghetto
front there are those who testified that the problem wasn't the conditions
but the people talking about them
they took away band so the boys started scratching they took away
gym so the boys started break dancing the boys started rapping
cause they gave them the guns and the drugs but not the schools and
what a beautiful boy to lose
and we mourn 2Pac Shakur and we reach out to his mother and we
hug ourselves in sadness and shame
and we are compelled to ask:
R U Happy, Mz Tucker? 2Pac is gone
R U Happy?
Ahoofe ntua ka, suban pa na hia- physical beauty does not count much, it is good character that counts.

"I heard a rumor I died, murdered in cold blood traumatized"
"Tell me if im wrong, but saying fuck the world got ya deeper in my songs"
"Somebody wake me, im dreamin, I started as a seed in the semen, swimmin up stream, planted in the womb, im screamin, on the top was my pops, my mama screamin stop, from a single drop, this is what they got, not to disrespect my people but my pops was a loser, only plan he had for mama was to fuck her and abuse her"
