Why many may want to argue about who is actually the greatest rapper of all time, to me there is no argument. Tupac Amaru Shakur (June 16, 1971 – September 13, 1996), will forever in my mind be the best.
Although some may site ‘Pac’s brash and unrelenting personality as a negative, if you would really LISTEN to what he was saying there was a definite authenticity to who he was and what he was saying. There are very few artist that combine there artistry with true intelligence. The video below really shows the reason in my mind, Tupac Amaru Shakur is the greatest rapper of all time. Take a good listen to an interview Tupac did in May of 1996 for Vibe Magazine. Keep in mind, he’s only 24.
