Tupac And Biggie: I Shake My Head - Articles Surfing
I shake my head not because it ended bad.
When I think of all the talent that they had.
My sadness stems from all the troubles that they were close to ending.
The badness in the ghetto's was what they thought they were mending.
Yet they became victims of their own predicament, when their destiny was bent.
Black people are made weak by borders, those borders create new world orders.
The one side feels strong in fighting the other side, and they'll never be 'down to ride!'
Africa has so many tribes with a very close link.
Yet they'll never admit to being part of the same click.
An African foreigner is met by negative hysteria,
Which is delivered by way of xenophobia.
They said it was all about the east side and the west side: which one was the best side?
I say who's east coast and who's west coast, who are we to boast?
Ultimately we are all just visitors to the earth. Which is symbolized by our birth.
We spend so much time fighting about the smaller things like who's better than who and
Yet we forget that we all share the same fear, where did we come from and where are we going?
Yet the important thing is what on earth are we doing.
Pac and Biggy were icons not because they had the illest rhymes, but because they spoke of the times.
Whoever you are if you let down the blinds of preprogrammed propaganda.
You will see they had an intense agenda.
It was personal yet social; it may have been their hands and voice used,
But yet they spoke for all the people who had been abused.
I shake my head because they were victims of what they had to maintain.
They were black men in America and thus could not escape the mordern day lash of the gunshot.
Their hatred for each other is what killed them is the story we bought.
But I don't, it just makes no sense how Tupac could be killed in the busiest street in Vegas one of the biggest nights, a Mike Tyson fight night! You can't tell me because it was night time and blacks were involved no one saw anything, because I know the road was packed. Whatever the case may be their legend can never be shot down or lashed and for that I honour their memory.
