RUN DMC couldn't touch Tupac's lyrical genius

here's an example of Tupac's talent:

Keep your head up!


Some say the blacker the berry, the sweeter the juice
I say the darker the flesh then the deeper the roots
I give a holler to my sisters on welfare
Tupac cares, and don't nobody else care
And uhh, I know they like to beat ya down a lot
When you come around the block brothas clown a lot
But please don't cry, dry your eyes, never let up
Forgive but don't forget, girl keep your head up
And when he tells you you ain't nuttin don't believe him
And if he can't learn to love you you should leave him
Cause sista you don't need him
And I ain't tryin to gas ya up, I just call em how I see em
You know it makes me unhappy (what's that)
When brothas make babies, and leave a young mother to be a pappy
And since we all came from a woman
Got our name from a woman and our game from a woman
I wonder why we take from our women
Why we rape our women, do we hate our women?
I think it's time to kill for our women
Time to heal our women, be real to our women
And if we don't we'll have a race of babies
That will hate the ladies, that make the babies
And since a man can't make one
He has no right to tell a woman when and where to create one
So will the real men get up
I know you're fed up ladies, but keep your head up

Keep ya head up, oooo child things are gonna get easier
ooooo child things are gonna get brighter [2x]

Aiyyo, I remember Marvin Gaye, used to sing ta me
He had me feelin like black was tha thing to be
And suddenly tha ghetto didn't seem so tough
And though we had it rough, we always had enough
I huffed and puffed about my curfew and broke the rules
Ran with the local crew, and had a smoke or two
And I realize momma really paid the price
She nearly gave her life, to raise me right
And all I had ta give her was my pipe dream
Of how I'd rock the mic, and make it to tha bright screen
I'm tryin to make a dollar out of fifteen cents
It's hard to be legit and still pay tha rent
And in the end it seems I'm headin for tha pen
I try and find my friends, but they're blowin in the wind
Last night my buddy lost his whole family
It's gonna take the man in me to conquer this insanity
It seems tha rain'll never let up
I try to keep my head up, and still keep from gettin wet up
You know it's funny when it rains it pours
They got money for wars, but can't feed the poor
Say there ain't no hope for the youth and the truth is
it ain't no hope for tha future
And then they wonder why we crazy
I blame my mother, for turning my brother into a crack baby
We ain't meant to survive, cause it's a setup
And even though you're fed up
Huh, ya got to keep your head up

And uhh
To all the ladies havin babies on they own
I know it's kinda rough and you're feelin all alone
Daddy's long gone and he left you by ya lonesome
Thank the Lord for my kids, even if nobody else want em
Cause I think we can make it, in fact, I'm sure
And if you fall, stand tall and comeback for more
Cause ain't nuttin worse than when your son
wants to kno why his daddy don't love him no mo'
You can't complain you was dealt this
hell of a hand without a man, feelin helpless
Because there's too many things for you to deal with
Dying inside, but outside you're looking fearless
While tears, is rollin down your cheeks
Ya steady hopin things don't all down this week
Cause if it did, you couldn't take it, and don't blame me
I was given this world I didn't make it
And now my son's getten older and older and cold
From havin the world on his shoulders
While the rich kids is drivin Benz
I'm still tryin to hold on to my survivin friends
And it's crazy, it seems it'll never let up, but
please... you got to keep your head up

I prefer the actual music more so than the lyrics behind the music.

Tupac was a great writer but I like DMC's music more.

PLUS, RUN D-M-C put Rap/Hip Hop on the map!  They are considered the KINGS of that genre. They are the ones that really broke though.

I have no idea what your first sentence means.

Preferring Run DMC is cool, but I don't think they put hip hop on the map...? I suppose Run DMC was more mainstream and easily accepted, but Tupac was much more...relatable to my generation, I think. And that's* the difference for me.

hmmmmm....... Go watch a Bio on Run DMC or look up the history of them on the internet.  They are known as the innovators of Rap/Hip Hip.  They are considered to have brought that genre from the underground world to Mainstream.

I understand that everyone has different tastes in music and then there is the different decade thing, I can respect that and that is why we have these polls, people are going to have different tastes. I'm just surprised at the voting % for this matchup. I thought it would be much closer or RUN DMC having more votes, is all.

Did you just tell me to watch something..? lol. I know who they are. I own all of their albums...and Tupac's, don't need the bio. I just don't agree. "put hip on the map" : kurtis blow, sugarhill gang, eric b. and rakim, afrikaa bambataa (sp?) come to mind when I hear that. That's all.

I aint tellin you sh** !  You actually think that I think that you would listen?  Bitch, paaaaaaaa-leeeeeeze!  (Kenny Fisher voice)wink





Nope!  RUN DMC moved it from underground to Mainstream!  Those other artists were before RUN DMC and became more popular once RUN DMC mainstreamed that music, but they (those other artists) did not mainstream that genre! 

We can do what we always do and agree to disagree.  

About whether you like 2-PACK more, hey, I'm cool with that.....everyone has different tastes and likes.....it's all good.  Like I said, I just thought the voting would be closer than it is.

I understand what you're saying, always did. That's why both times I said "to me" and really was just trying to explain my logic. But yeah, you and most of America feel the same about Run Dmc....and me.
