@2pac Tupac Amaru Shakur 13 Septembre 1996 le décés de 2pac le plus grand rappeur de tous les temps. 23 ans 😓.. J'avais 6ans quand il est mort et 12ans quand j'ai appris à le connaître grâce á mon grand cousin. Je suis rentré dans cette culture hip hop avec le Rap en france avec IAM, la FF.. et aux Etats Unis avec 2pac j'ai voulu tout savoir sur ses textes , cette guerre West vs East coast Pac Biggie , sa mère les Black Panthers, les droits des noirs , sa poésie , ses plus grosses conneries, la ville de Los Angeles. Á l'heure d'aujourd'hui il reste une influence pour tous les rappeurs beaucoup d'acteuret ses textes étudié dans les lycées 🇺🇸 bref le king du rap repose en paix boss #ThugLife #MonInspiration #2pac #Tupac #Makiaveli #Shakur #Afeni #WestCoast #DeathRow

#TupacShakur's Political Activism (Potash, 2017). _ Tupac's mother, #Afeni was a member of the #BlackPanthers (Potash, 2017). Potash (2017) found that Tupac called himself a revolutionary at activist meetings with #MutuluShakur. By 18 years old, Tupac was elected national chairman of the #NewAfrikanPanthers (Potash, 2017). #2Pac planned to revolutionize #BlackGangs, Potash (2017) indicated that he talked to Mutulu about starting “ #ThugLife” as an appeal to gangs and politicize them, linking gangs with his revolutionary extended family. Further, Tupac and Mutulu discussed the concept of #ThugLifeCode to lessen harm gangs do to their communities (Potash, 2017). Potash (2017) revealed that #Pac planned to extend his revolution into #HipHop by politicizing other rappers, such as his friend #BiggieSmalls. During his rising rap career, his mother told him that he was a Black leader (Potash, 2017). During his career, Tupac was mentored #WataniTyehimba, his personal manager-a radical left wing activist and #ChokweLumumba, was his legal advisor (Potash, 2017). Tupac funded groups such as New Afrikan People’s Organization (Potash, 2017). By the time of his death at 25 years old, Potash (2017) found that Tupac had been spreading #Bloods and #Crips gang peace truces nationwide, and politicizing the gangs. _ Endnote. Amazon.

I still remember it like it was yesterday. Its wierd cuz it was Friday the 13th then to. I was listening to 92.3 the Beat and Theo was on the radio crying. Even though I never met you, it resonated as if one of my closest homies had passed. I remember crying and thinking how could someone I didnt know have this type of an impact on my life. I guess cause in so many ways, to me and to a generation of young men like me, you were us. Strong, conflicted, good and bad all at the same time. You like us, just wanted more. So today I remember what you were trying to do. Ignite a spark that would bring about change. I believe you did that with #nipseyhussle and now he passed the torch. I just pray that we dont have to loose another one too soon, before the really got the chance to step into their fullest potential. I pray you finally found the #Peace you never got in life and that your sitting at the very feet of God. Thank you for all you inspired in me. #2pac #hiphop #makaveli #fridaythe13 #neverforgotten #RIP #thuglife #outlaws #digitalunderground #brendasong #dearmomma #keepyaheadup #meagainsttheworld #juice #thugimmortal #afeni #biggiesmalls

♥ I'm the type of friend who calls u just to say,"Hey!" The type that if your cryin' to wipe your tears away. To listen & not pass judgement. To help u dispite the perdicument. Type to give, even if I don't receive. Type to hook u up if u need a weave. Lol. But all jokes aside. I'm the friend who remains when every1 has turned their back. The same friend who loves u & fulfill's what other's lack. ♥ ~Viva💛💛 (I love art in all forms) -This speaks volumes- @rapsody @pjmorton + Tupac @thatlaundry #Afeni

What I loved most about the 90s Hip Hop era was the diversity and originality of the artists. Artists like @nas and @tooshort could coexist on radio and TV platforms while expanding the boundaries and pushing the culture forward. The women were no different with @queenlatifah and @lilkimthequeenbee bringing a woman’s touch to the game from opposite sides of the spectrum. Today seems a bit lopsided and hopefully this powerful album #Eve by the incomparable @rapsody swings the pendulum back into balance! Just the titles of the songs should make this mainstay, not just on every woman’s, but every #HipHopHead’s playlist! #RealRap #ForTheCulture #Lyricism #Message #BlackPower #WomenEmpowerment #Afeni #Aaliyah #Sojourner #Iman #Cleo

Come here, let me untwist your hair and massage your head. Let me pick your brain. I wanna let you into this safe space I hold and keep sacred for you. I know you are kind of hurt. I kinda wish I could take the pain away from you. I seen how the Devil likes to have his way with you. I felt their hate for you. Their innate ways to fake and play with you in this life you were given, over this nightmare you are livin', pardon them for not seein' your purpose, but for what it's worth. We're in this life thing together, so can't you love me deeper than that? Like God intended you to? Can't you remember where you came from, like you ain't came from my seed of love? Your broken spirit can't always be the excuse. Thought I taught you the gravity of respect and paying dues, thought you knew. My God don't like ugly. My God said she need an apology. Needs to know you see all the beauty she created. Needs you to know wouldn't be no you if it wasn't for us. My God said, "How much harder we gotta love you?" - @reynabiddy #Afeni #rapsody 📸 by @em_irawillis #locs #dreads #dreadlocks #naturalhair

Rapsody: EVE Review: . Music Grade Hip-Hop 101: A- . Wow!! So the first thing I did was ask my ol' lady what she thought of this project. I  thought it wouldn't do it any justice if I just created the narrative from just my eyes. Laila's Wisdom was so good that I knew I would be over critical about this project, so I definitely wanted to take some time to dissect this one. WTBS, Rapsody is the shyt!!!! She is so gifted!!! Yeah, like more than lyrical, more than talented, but blessed, gifted, chosen. The samples that 9th Wonder chosed to create and Rapsody chose to use was very incapsulating. This is a Body of Work that really stands alone. Rapsody is so empowering and motivating, that the average male listener might not appreciate it as much as it should. Rapsody keeps the track very fun and extremely positive. She fa sho threw shots at BDot, which was a hella surprise, but shoewed me the space that Rapsody is in knowing that she's hearing the gossip about her being one of the best rappers in th game right now. . OVERALL I really had to put my listening ears on for this one, mostly because the production wasn't the sound I'm accustom to hearing with the 808s and the massive bass in the beats'. Rapsody give hints of Ol' Jay-Z (again) but mostly holds her own and doesn't show any doubt in her delivery. She fits very well with 9th Wonder (and Eric G) production and you can tell they've been working with each other for some time. Will Rapsody ever make it to main stream? Who knows, but fa sho, for now she will be one of the Top Rappers in the game and by a landslide Best Female Rapper...Landslide... . *Stuck to the Album Theme *Complimenting Production *Piercing Lyrical Content .

Afeni by Rapsody ft PJ Morton This album will be the gift of Hip-Hop I will share with my four daughters. It’s a beautiful stream of thought that was so carefully crafted by such an elite emcee the Queen Rapsody. It’s been long overdue for me to feature one of Raps’ many songs on this page. I believe this entire album, “Eve”, speaks with a boldness on topics specific to the struggles and triumphs of the Black Woman. Each track named after a phenomenal Queen. “Afeni” will be the featured track. So many layers. The song samples 2Pac’s “Dear Mama”. The sample, which I believe is the core of his message, becomes the foundation of what Rap’s song “Afeni”, named after Pac’s mom, delivers. The opening words “My brother, I love you” gave me chills because the sentiment is so pure. It brings the listener in to receive what follows. And what follows in this verse is a rude awakening of how we (as Black Men) have not been the Kings our Black Queens deserve of us. It speaks of how we have overlooked them as a mechanism of our own self-hatred. She then appeals to the heart of Black Men to rekindle our love for ourselves (Black people) by completing the puzzle and inserting the missing piece, loving the Black Woman. The second verse is directed to the Black Women and Black Man as a validation of what they (the Black Woman) have felt, thought, and lived and a continued decree to Black Men. So moving. This song also features a sample from Denice Williams “Free”, which makes me think about the paradox of this song. Are we still slaves to the years of conditioning that allow us to continuously miss the mark of living in our true purpose of passion for one another? Can we begin to heal from the hurts we have caused each other? Black women have always been a safe space for black men. We appreciate you. I appreciate you. Please! I advise you, GO LISTEN TO THIS SONG, THIS ALBUM!

We’ve all been praising the #rapsody album for the past week, but this track right here.....Masterpiece. And the #afeni song....almost made tears shed... @9thwonder really showed out with that #badu flip and for Rap to breathe new life into the #deniecewilliams classic....Man... This is what it’s all about We posted our favorites. #wcw #eve #inthatorder Honestly tho, it only makes sense to remix one of these album songs with the rapper Eve on it. Just sayin 🤷🏾‍♂️
#WCW @Rapsody. Respect to one of the GREATEST of our time. In ART. In song and conviction to the stories of the heart of womb-man. An amazing body of work that will be forever TIMELESS in this world when women, black women, need to be reminded of their worth and GREATNESS. Salute to a #queen for telling OUR story. #eve . . . #wonderWomanCrushWednesday . . #realRapsody #queendom #afeni #nina #aliyah
I finished listening to this incredible album by @rapsody a Queen representing Queens. A Dope M.C. who gives perspective. This last song Afeni hit me. Maybe it was the 2Pac sample "Since we all came from a woman, got our name from a woman, got our game from a woman. I wonder why we take from our women, why we rape our women, do we hate our women?" The chorus, the lyrics. I promise to be a better man to our women. To protect our women and our children. And truly serve as a warrior. This is such a great song and album. #Rapsody #Eve #Afeni #2Pac #RespectOurWomen #ProtectOurWomen #HealOurWomen #BeWarriors #BlackQueen
Thanks to all my friends who have recommended this body of work to me! You really get me! I was already anticipating this project. Having listened a few times, I definitely have some favorites. This is one of them. Have you checked out Eve by @rapsody yet? What’s your fav(s)?
WITH @RAPSODY’S PERMISSION I HAD THE CHANCE TO LET OUR GUESTS HEAR HER NEW SONG #AFENI FEAT @pjmorton BEFORE HER ALBUM EVE DROPPED. *I WANTED MY DAUGHTER TO HEAR THIS. HER MOTHER WAS IN THE AUDIENCE. WE’VE ALL HAD TIMES IN OUR LIVES, AS MEN, WHERE WE HAVE BEEN SOME REAL ASSHOLES TOWARDS WOMEN. AND THE DAY MY WIFE GAVE BIRTH TO OUR DAUGHTER I REALIZED THAT WAS GOD SAYING, YOU SEE, YOU SEE, YOU SEE? SO WHEN YOU HEAR SOMEONE CREATE SOMETHING THAT TOUCHES YOU SO STRONG, YOU JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU SHARE THAT. AND YOU WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT THAT CREATIVITY GETS OUT THERE AND THAT ITS AMPLIFIED. @REYNABIDDY…I APPRECIATE AND SALUTE YOU FOR WHAT YOU BROUGHT TO #EVE. WITH THIS TYPE OF TALENT…SHARE, DON’T HOARD. SHARE IT. 🙏🏽🖤💯 BTW...THAT RIGHT HAND TAP IS WHEN YOU KNOW ITS HELLA REALLLLL!!! #WEOUTCHEA #SNOWHILL #NC #BELIEVEINWOMEN #SPEECCHHH #ALLLOVE 😂
