Tupac has SO many great songs.

This song with the Stevie Wonder beat is excellent, and IMO this is the hardest hitting story off of Tupac's debut, more so than Brenda's Got a Baby:

If you're open-minded and willing to giv esoemthign different a shot the album Whole Lotta Red by Playboi Carti is really good. Here are some of my favorite tracks from the tape.



Tupac each day. Some of his remixes have the best instrumentals; On the eve of war (DJ Thug Angel), Me Against the world( Bun B & Brooklyn), and Untouchables(Django Unchained).

Rappers that don't give a fuck

And the guy who gives the absolute lowest amount of fucks:

When I read the title of the post I was expecting something more in the lines of Body Count:

 

But I guess it diverges from the rap/hip hop classification a bit too much.

Some more in line with the rest of the posts:

A small selection and as a ''bonus'' a buddy of mine, years ago, in Dutch though:



Currently really into this song
