Tha Lunatic By Tupac
I’m not one of those “Tupac guys”. Meaning, I’ve never really gave a fuck about him since post “I get around”. In fact, anytime I meet someone who champions him as “one of the greatest” , that’s a pretty strong personality definer right there. It’s like “ohhhhh, you’re one of those ‘Tupac guys’…we’re done here.”.
However, I also don’t think he was the worst rapper or anything…he simply wasn’t making music that appealed to me. But, prior to his breakout album “Strictly 4 my N.I.G.G.A.Z.” , he was kinda dope.
I remember the first time I heard him on Digital underground’s “Same song” , I was like “Who was that guy?”. Shortly after that buzz began , he released his debut album “2pacalypse now” which was a slightly uneven yet potential showing album. He was certainly rough around the edges but, even then, he showed signs of being the same polarizing character he would later embrace. I mean, “Brenda’s got a baby” may be the sappiest rap song about finding a baby in the dumpster ever. Then you got a song like this , “Tha Lunatic” where he’s pretty much just talking shit about guns and bitches (I’ll take that topic over unwanted pregnancy anytime).
So for future reference, rappers, Guns and Pussy>>>>>Dumpster babies.
