As a rapper, maybe. He was VERY popular, but amongst hip hop heads, he was never really considered one of the "best" MCs.

That's it really. He sold records but never got much attention from the scene. It would have been a risky choice for me to drop a 'Pac song at a gig back in the day. Biggie had far more cred.

The problem with the hypocricy was it made the emotion hard to take at face value.

The fact that he became famous when he's dead and he lead a film worthy life, don't make him a great MC. I wouldn't rate him in my top 50, I don't think. Hell, Shock G was better than him any day.

He was famous way before his death. He was the all time best selling rapper before he died. To each his own tho.
