Tupac Shakur left behinda massive catalog of songs. Narrowing Pac's best to just 22 songs wasn't an easy task. 2Pac managed to touch on every subject worth rapping about, from racial injustice to teen pregnancy. As a tribute to one ofhip hop'sgreatest minds, here are 22 of 2Pac's greatest songs.
"2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted" (Ft. Snoop Dogg)
This is the song that blew the doors off the hinges of the epicBiggie-Tupac feud. Anointed as the new prince of the left coast, 'Pac exhibited a new side of himself: a clever, young comrade of the gangsta rap movement of the mid-'90s, alongside Tha Doggfather. The dynamic duo spit murderous daggers at their East coast foes atop a smooth-as-silk party track. Homicide to bump in the ride. Only on the Westside. And 'Pac helped put 'em back on the map!
"Until the End of Time (RP Remix)"
An eponymous remix track, this "Broken Wings"-sampling Richard Page remix matched Tupac's identity quite well. The beat grips the listener with its heavy bass, snares and urgent church bells as 'Pac spills his soul over with grit and honesty, even from the song's first bars:"Perhaps I was addicted to the dark side/ Somewhere inside my childhood witnessed my heart die."
Perhaps the most recognizable Tupac track of them all, "Changes" possessed the rare duality of being both a commercial success and a vessel of social upliftment. As 'Pac would say,"some things will never change."Indeed. Songs like "Changes" remain timeless to this very day.
"Hit 'Em Up" (Feat. Outlawz)
Vitriolic, spiteful, and outright inflammatory, Tupac elevated what was abitter feudbetween former friends to outright warfare in this rapid-fire diss record aimed at Notorious B.I.G. Flanked by the marginally skilled ranks of the Outlawz, Pac unleashed private matters—including an alleged affair with Biggie's wife,Faith Evans—for the world to see, giving hip-hop one of its most memorable and venomous tracks.
A heartfelt lamentation of the ills of Black society, an angry and frustrated Shakur struggles to find hope in this cut offMe Against the World. Introspective and spiritual, this song is the expression of Pac at his most honest: conflicted, disillusioned, and desperately clinging to the hope of redemption.
"Picture Me Rolling"
Funky production and guests Syke and CPO offer Tupac enough ammunition to propel an otherwise typical roll through the city block into an ambient portrait of street life. With his typical energy and lyricism, Pac provides a taunt to his critics and detractors, offering a triumphant statement of self in the face of adversity.
"When Thugz Cry"
Self-pity is often reserved for teenage girls, but 2Pac turns it into a song about the persecution that induces Black-on-Black crime in the African-American community.
"Life Goes On"
This gem fromAll Eyez On Mefinds 2Pac nudging himself forward after losing some loved ones. "Life Goes On" is a bittersweet reminder that 'Pac had a knack for displaying strength in the face of adversity.
"I Wonder If Heaven's Got a Ghetto"
Returning to his role as a social rabble-rouser and plain-spoken prophet, 2Pac questions the failed institutions of the material world and wonders if the divine is more forgiving. Vulnerable yet assured, Pac doesn’t offer apologies, only hope in this earnest song.
"Ambitionz as a Ridah"
The fierce opening track forAll Eyez On Me, Pac’s most commercially successful album, sets the tone immediately; menacing, gruff, and uncompromising, this song serves as a haunting foreshadowing of the violence and paranoia that would plague the rest of Tupac's career.
"California Love" (feat. Dr. Dre)
Though it sometimes gets overshadowed by the more emotive "To Live & Die in LA," "California Love" is one of Tupac's best-known works. Dr. Dre's piano-laden production frames the soundbed for a celebratory ode to Cali, while Roger Troutman's vocoder-aided chorus adds some flavor to the mix.
"One day I'm gonna bust/ Blow up on this society/ Why did you lie to me?/ I couldn't find a trace of equality!"As he proceeds to critique the so-called justice system and the prison complex, the tone in Tupac's voice grows more and more urgent with each bar. 'Pac finally lets out his aggravated tension in the last line:"I'd rather die than be trapped in a living hell/ They got me trapped!"
With the name-dropping and homage that takes place in Pac’s name today, it’s easy to forget that he was once an up-and-comer. On “Old School,” Shakur gives a nod to everyone from MC Lyte, Big Daddy Kane, and Rakim to Melle Mel, Slick Rick, and Chuck D. for paving the way for aspiring hip-hop artists.
("Don't cry through your despair /I wonder if the Lord still cares, for us n***as on welfare /And who cares if we survive /The only time they notice a n***a is when he's clutching on a .45 /My neighborhood ain't the same, /Cause all these little babies goin crazy and they suffering in the game.")'Pac shouts out his 'hood, while praying for better days.
"Me Against the World"
This title track from the 1995 masterpiece,Me Against the World, is a perfect example of 2Pac's eff-the-world, melodrama-inducing attitude.
Backed by a hazy cosmic soundtrack, 2Pac delivers a dose of vitriol on this standout track from 1996'sMakaveli. In 2003, Eminem, 50 Cent, and Busta Rhymes famously summoned 'Pac's spirit as they re-imagined "Hail Mary" as a diss to Ja Rule and Irv Gotti.
"So Many Tears"
Laid across the somber puffs of the harmonica solo from Stevie Wonder's "That Girl," "So Many Tears" finds Tupac pleading with God, renouncing past sins and his"mind full of demons."'Pac recollects over the tears he's shed on account of the lives he's seen lost to violence. Truly one of his deepest and most personal moments.
"Only God Can Judge Me"
2Pac and Rappin' 4-Tay trade bars about imperfection on one hand and ponder afterlife on the other. Hear 'Pac predict his own death:"I hear the doctor standing over me, screaming I can make it /Got a body full of bullet holes layin here naked /Still I, can't breathe..."One of the standout moments on the critically acclaimed double album,All Eyez on Me.
"To Live & Die in L.A."
From Venice Beach to the San Gabriel Valley and all the areas in between, Tupac loved the City of Angels and the city loved him. Sure, "California Love" was a great party track devoted to the Golden State, but "To Live & Die in L.A." was an authentic gesture of homage -- paid to his true adoptive home -- where it"never rains in the sun."The fact that it became one of his several swan songs further eternalized his name and never-ending presence in the city, even to this very day.
"Brenda's Got a Baby"
On his debut single from 1991's2Pacalypse Now, 'Pac narrates the story of a 12-year old girl who accidentally conceives and is incapable of raising her child. Seventeen years later, many rappers have kept this discussion alive by churning their own versions of the song ("Runaway Love," "Lil Girl Gone"), but "Brenda's Got a Baby" still reigns supreme.
"Dear Mama," 2Pac's ode to his mother Afeni Shakur, is pretty much the unofficialMother's Day hip-hop anthem. On this meticulously-crafted masterpiece, Shakur pats mama on the back for working tirelessly to put food on the table during the day and trying to liberate him from the perils of street life at night.
"Keep Ya Head Up"
Perhaps the perfect showcase of the man's softer side, "Keep Ya Head Up" is arguably his best individual performance ever. Over DJ Daryl's rendition of Zapp & Roger's "Be Alright," Pac delivers a message about staying ahead of the struggle and showing respect to all, regardless of gender.("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...")

Despite being tragically killed at the age of 25, 2Pac has remained one of the best rappers of all time. Here is 10 of his best songs.
Here are the top 10 best 2Pac songs of all time.. Regaining popularity in 2013 by being a focal point of the GTA V soundtrack, Ambitionz Az A Ridah was the first song that fans heard from 2Pac after being released from prison as it opens the Diamond certified double album, All Eyez On Me.. Reaching at number 7 on the Billboard Hot Rap Song charts, Brenda’s Got A Baby was the hit song from 2Pac’s debut album 2Pacalypse Now, and details the struggles of a 12-year-old girl who fell pregnant, later turning to prostitution to make money.. All eyes really were on 2Pac at the start of 1996 when he released the double album just months after being released from prison.. All Eyez On Me was the first album the rapper released under Death Row Records and showed a more aggressive side of 2Pac and the album brought him his most success in term of album sales, debuting at number 1 on the Billboard 200 and eventually selling over 5 million copies earning Diamond status.. The gold standard by which all diss tracks are measured by.. The single was released just 2 days after his death, with the music video featuring 2Pac dying by a gunshot wound, which eerily reflects the real-life circumstances surrounding his death in September of 1996.. As the opening line of the song states, ain’t nothing like a gangster party, and that is what you get when 2Pac and Snoop Dog are in the same room.. Along with Hail Mary, 2 Of Amerikaz Most Wanted was performed by Snoop Dog and a hologram of 2Pac at Coachella in 2012.. Changes is perhaps the most recognized hip hop song of all time, universally loved regardless of age, sex, race, or religion.. Changes is one of the best hip hop songs of all time and it is a shame that 2Pac never got to see the impact the song had on the world.

What didn't make the cut?
The Bad Boy Entertainment rappers continuously denied this but managed to prod a stick into the hornets’ nest when, whilst 2Pac was incarcerated for his part in an alleged sexual assault and still bearing five fresh gunshot wounds from the robbery in a New York recording studio in which Bad Boy and Uptown Records artists were expectantly waiting for Pac upstairs, The Notorious B.I.G released a track titled ‘Who Shot Ya?’. Once Pac was released, (He signed a contract with Death Row Records for bail money,) he went at Bad Boy with all he had, sometimes subliminally, other times directly.. “ And even as a crack fiend, mama / You always was a black queen, mama / I finally understand / For a woman it ain’t easy trying to raise a man / You always was committed / A poor single mother on welfare / Tell me how ya did it / There’s no way I can pay you back / But the plan is to show you that I understand / You are appreciated.. The first and most successful single from Me Against the World shows Tupac paying tribute to his mother, Black Panther Activist and ex-addict: Afeni Shakur.. “ Now when I came out, I told you it was just about Biggie / Then everybody had to open their mouth with a mother-cking opinion / Well this is how we gonna do this / F-ck Mobb Deep, f-ck Biggie / F-ck Bad Boy as a staff, record label and as a motherf-cking crew / And if you want to be down with Bad Boy, then f-ck you too.”. Attacking several East Coast rappers whilst aiming the brunt of his fury at Bad Boy Record’s Notorious B.I.G and Puff Daddy, who Shakur believed were behind the robbery and shooting in Quad Studios (Puffy and BIG were present upstairs at the studio during the incident.). In a further smack in the mouth for Bad Boy, the Johnny J produced track used samples of Junior M.A.F.I.A’s ‘Get Money’, here changed to ‘Take Money,’ and allegedly featured Faith Evans on some of the vocals.. “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?
Tupac Shakur is widely considered to be one of the most influential rappers of all time. Although his name is usually associated with gangster rap, he’s written a number of different songs on just about...
Tupac’s versatility when it comes to songwriting is acclaimed by many other artists and fans, but some songs have influenced people more than others.. When this song was released, it was one of the first times that we had seen a man dedicating a song to women who are suffering from domestic abuse or other common hardships that only women can relate to.. But the song didn’t just strike a chord with women, it has become one of the most popular songs in Hip Hop history, although it didn’t chart as well as some of his more rougher songs.. It’s not just a fan’s song, but an artist’s song as well.. The song was one of the first heartfelt and serious songs about a real issue in America that rap fans had ever heard on a mainstream level, and it had a tremendous impact on many future rap artists and the content of their music.. If people outside of the Rap Game didn’t know what a battle rap was at this time, they certainly knew after Hit Em’ Up dropped.. Changes The song Changes was released after Tupac’s death, and although he never heard the official released version of the song, I’m sure he would be proud to see how the finished product turned out.. The end of the song also foreshadowed 2pac’s death, as Shakur raps “I always gotta worry about the payback, from some buck that I roughed up way back, coming back after all these years, rat-tat-tat-tat-tat”, since this is similar to the scenario that most people believe caused his death.. He then said, “I’m more of a rock fan myself, but one rap song I really like is that song Dear Mama by Tupac”.. It’s one of those rap songs that crosses genres and touches people of all ages and races.. It’s a one-of-a-kind rap song, and while some hardcore hip hop heads may compare it to Ghostface Killah’s song All That I Got Is You, they need to keep in mind that 2pac’s is much more of a ballad than just a regular rap song about his mother.. There was definitely millions of people who probably didn’t respect rap too much until they heard a touching song like that.
Inalis ni Tupac Shakur ang isang napakalaking catalog ng mga kanta. Ang pinakamahabang pakikinabangan ni Pac sa 22 kanta ay hindi isang madaling gawain. Pinamahalaan ng 2Pac ang bawat paksa na nagkakahalaga ng rapping tungkol sa, mula sa kawalan ng katarungan sa lahi hanggang sa pagbubuntis ng tinedyer. Bilang isang pagkilala sa isa sa pinakadakilang isip ng hip hop, narito ang 22 ng pinakadakilang kanta ng 2Pac.

Bilang isang pagkilala sa isa sa pinakadakilang isip ng hip hop, narito ang 22 ng pinakadakilang kanta ng 2Pac.. Ang mga awit na "Mga Pagbabago" ay nananatiling walang tiyak na oras sa mismong araw na ito.. Ang pinakahiyas na ito mula sa Lahat ng Eyez On Me ay nakakuha ng 2Pac na nudging kanyang sarili pasulong matapos ang pagkawala ng ilang mga mahal sa buhay.. Tunay na isa sa kanyang pinakamalalim at pinaka personal na sandali.. Mula sa Venice Beach hanggang sa San Gabriel Valley at lahat ng mga lugar sa pagitan, mahal ni Tupac ang Lungsod ng mga Anghel at mahal siya ng lungsod.. Ang katotohanan na ito ay naging isa sa kanyang maraming mga awit ng swan karagdagang walang hanggang ang kanyang pangalan at walang katapusan na presensya sa lungsod, kahit na sa araw na ito.. Sa obra maestra na ito, ang Shakur ay tumama sa likod para magtrabaho nang walang tigil upang ilagay ang pagkain sa mesa sa araw at sinusubukan na palayain siya mula sa mga panganib ng buhay sa kalye sa gabi.
Tupac Amaru Shakur, born Lesane Parish Crooks, wasn’t just a rapper, actor, model or entrepreneur, he was a game-changing icon of music, poetry and street life. He was the first gangster rapper to come equipped with a message, a heart, and the emotional foresight to see it wouldn...
Unlike any other rapper, Tupac was able to be at once vulnerable and armoured, at once throwing a punch while showing his scars, and the below songs all reflect this duality, the fallibility and humanity of an artist gone far too soon.. The Bad Boy Entertainment rappers continuously denied this but managed to prod a stick into the hornets’ nest when, whilst 2Pac was incarcerated for his part in an alleged sexual assault and still bearing five fresh gunshot wounds from the robbery in a New York recording studio in which Bad Boy and Uptown Records artists were expectantly waiting for Pac upstairs, The Notorious B.I.G released a track titled ‘Who Shot Ya?’.

The first and most successful single from Me Against the World shows Tupac paying tribute to his mother, Black Panther Activist and ex-addict: Afeni Shakur.. Using a sample of‘In All My Wildest Dreams’ by Joe Sample, Pac croons over the beat with a harsh and open sadness contrasted by an emotional softness that few rappers had attempted before.. Featuring a barely recognisable sample of James Brown’s The Spank , Trapped’s first verse tells the story of a black man’s experience at the hands of police brutality.. “ Now when I came out, I told you it was just about Biggie / Then everybody had to open their mouth with a mother-cking opinion / Well this is how we gonna do this / F-ck Mobb Deep, f-ck Biggie / F-ck Bad Boy as a staff, record label and as a motherf-cking crew / And if you want to be down with Bad Boy, then f-ck you too.”.

Recorded shortly after the death of 2Pac’s friend: Kato, he invited the rest of Thug Life to join him in paying tribute.. “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?
