You did not just compare biggie to ma homie pac,

Tupac was a legend and everything he says are some how connected. He came from a "not too rich" family yet they where very popular in the USA. You just cant compare there two niggaz. For instance, listen to 2pac CHANGES. You can't compare any of Christopher Wallace's hit to Changes. Listen to Pac's words and you will know he wasn't just into gangsta rap, He is also a great poet. Greatest ever.

We love you Pac.

rappers steal BIG's punchlines more in the industry. EG. "I've seen some lady tonight and she'll be having my baby" "like my necklace started relaxin, now that's what the Bleep i call a chain reaction", to mention a few. but basically, PAC made the bigger impact especially politically. so my winner is PAC.

2pac career, popularity kicked off when he changed from the story telling to thuggery, practically Deathrow took him to another level, but during his early career he wasnt in the top bracket of hip hop stars

I cant say who was the best because we would never know

Quick everyone,

Before 2pac joined Deathrow how good was he?

Because I honestly believe his career took of when Suge Knight went to bail him out of prison and took him to Deathrow, Then he had already released 2 albums then they were good but not as good as Snoop dogs's debut album "canine Style" or Dr Dre's Chronic that came out the same time, Ice Cube, the late Eazy-E, these were heavy hitters in the hip hop world

But Biggies debut album was a hit from day one

It doesn't matter now. What matters is that they both came, scratched the world in their own ways, and now they are as dead as any of the saints of old.

2pac was aight. people obviously loved his intensity, thuggery n overall bad boy image. we all love gangsters!

biggie knew how 2 tell a story and play with words n above all, he did it with such smooth style n grace.

they were both great artiste in thier time. Tupac obviously had more impact in the Hip Hop world Than B.I.G, But I'd rather lock myself up 2 and listen to BIGGIE's songs than AmARU's

This shouldn't even result into an argument. 2pac by far had a greater influence than Big. He was just everything in one. And also a workaholic. But Big had a better lyrical flow and his freestyles were crazy too. But impact and influence wise, Pac na bros.

Shakur is it. Years after his death, his releases are still relevant, and new ones are coming out. BIG is practically forgotten, except that he's in the Hip-Hop Hall of Fame and is commemorated every year.

I CAN SAY THAT I AM TUPAC'S NUMBER ONE FAN FOR LIFE COS NO ONE LOVES AND SEES HIM LIKE I DO

SEE MY TOPIC AND POST UR THREAD ( 'TUPAC WAS AND STILL IS THE REALEST' AND LETS TALK MORE ) WHITEBOY

I need y'all to never argue about the fact the 2PAC AMARU SHAKUR aka MAKAVELI was and is still the realest/greatest rapper ever. HE'S WAS/IS FAR AHEAD OF BIGGIE IN ALL ASPECTS

I've been listening to PAC ever since I was 9years, diggin his rhymes and even when I knew just a lil' about what he was saying, I just loved him. Even 12years after i've known him, I still dig 2PAC's style and he will always be my number one no matter what.

Its been TEN years after his demise and here's a lil' something I composed in memory of PAC. Its a poem because I love to do this. You might aswell call me a poet because i've got a whole lot in my archive.

In loving memory of TUPAC AMARU SHAKUR aka LESANE PARISH CROOKS aka MAKAVELI

BALLAD OF A SOULJA: Composed on 13TH September 2006 (Exactly 10years after his demise)

He came, He wrote and spoke

He spoke with courage,

words that encourage

but He left at an early age

My heart has wept for a decade

with tears flowing in a cascade

They claimed He was violent

because He refused to be silent

but when He left they all wept

A tattoo of him is engraved in my heart

so we both will never be apart

Ten year since He's been gone,

He's still not done

I don't expect his return

because Machiavelli's return made him the Don

some think He's dead

while some think He's not

but the truth is; HE LIVES, like it or not

How about that for my man 2PAC? He must be smiling wherever he is right now

HOLLA BACK IF YOU'RE A FAN!

pac is the greatest rapper of all times.pac made more impact than biggie.

but pls,lets just enjoy both they're music n not get into the "beef thing".its not healthy for the industry.they both made good music.other rappers too like nas,rakim,ice-cube,run dmc,jay-z,krs1,n lots of others too made impact,though 2pac is d greatest,to me.

@ Sama

Is it because you are from new york that you saying biggie had a bigger impact on rap

You know biggie was even more bad then Tupac, He was a real life drug dealer,

But anyways Tupac impacted the rap scene way more than biggie. Thats y every rapper today wants to be pac. He had wayyyyy more power then biggie. That is just a fact

2pac's the man. B.I.G was just popular b/cos he was big.

But Biggie was still alive when Pac died and for 6 months failed to even make an impact when all eyes were finally on him. Were as life after death did not progress for Biggie neither.]#

Physically he was bigger than pac fairplay, but intellectually pac was the man he made hip-hop what it is today by taking on the whole east-coast b himself. Which i think is crazy, but the man still did it.

R.I.P

Tupac we miss u man.

Biggie only had one style, were Pac ripped a piss on biggie by generating multiple styles and still tryna keep it as real as he saw life. I mean look at the difference between lil homies and unconditional love.

were as Biggies songs were all about him and living in a one roomed shack which never happened for the niggar

Tupac is still believed to be alive and I partially agree with that. He is a don and I don't think anyone can be like him again in the Music World. The only one who raps like Pac is LIL ZANE and I think he's the only one for now. Armaru Shakur is still the best all day.

I will have to say tupac made a greater impact

Its not that he was better then BIG

But the man had more POWER

When it came to presence, no one could touch pac

But to me BIG had a much better lyrical flow...

but That is now always what does it, look at fifty for instance, he is not even top fifty lyrically

but since he has power he can run poo

Ua definatly pac, but BIG dey second oh

Pac all day. His diss song to BIGGIE (Hit'em up) was regarded as the best diss song ever. Pac made a far better impact that Biggie in the Hip Hop world.

I must agree with Tupac having the greatest impact on rap. Not hip-hop but rap. His lyrics were poetic and meaningful. They stretched far beyond "drug dealing, taking your woman, my hood" type songs. Songs of love, appreciation, and encouragement also flowed from within.

His songs seemed to come from the heart and connect with so many different people.
