Tupac Shakur A Legend Never Dies

By Elma B.

While I was in primary school in the mid 90s, I remember carefully listening to the lyrics of Tupac's "Changes" song:

"I see no changes...
I'm tired of bein' poor and even worse I'm black.
My stomach hurts, so I'm lookin' for a purse to snatch.
Cops give a damn about a negro? Pull the trigger, kill a nigga, he's a hero.
Give the crack to the kids who the hell cares? One less hungry mouth on the welfare." (-Changes music video)

Allá por los 90, cuando aún estaba en el colegio, recuerdo perfectamente escuchar la canción ''Changes'' de Tupac.

Aquí tenéis un pequeño párrafo de la misma:

"I see no changes...
I'm tired of bein' poor and even worse I'm black.
My stomach hurts, so I'm lookin' for a purse to snatch.
Cops give a damn about a negro? Pull the trigger, kill a nigga, he's a hero.
Give the crack to the kids who the hell cares? One less hungry mouth on the welfare." (-Changes music video)











The lyrics and the music video reflect the anger the African-American community was coping with in the early 90s after Rodney King (an African-American construction worker) was excessively beaten after a high speed car-chase by Caucasian cops in 1991 at a gas station in L.A. Tupac was cognizant of the burdensome challenges he as an African-American male, born in East Harlem, was facing in life. In fact, the themes of most of Tupac's songs are about the violence and hardship in inner cities, racism, and social problems. His quotes and lyrics indicate that Tupac was an idealist who rightfully believed in equal opportunity regardless of a person's race or socioeconomic background. Although many controversies surround Tupac, it remains apparent that he was a gifted rapper who had already become an international music icon in his twenties.

La letra de la canción y el video refleja perfectamente la ira de la comunidad Africana en América imitando los 90 después de Rodney King(un constructor Africano-Americano) fue detenido por la Policía Caucásica por exceder el limite de velocidad en 1991 en una estación de servicio en Los Angeles. Tupac era consciente de los retos a los que se enfrenta durante la vida un hombre afro-americano, nacido en el Este de Harlem. De hecho, los temas de la mayoría de las canciones de Tupac hacen referencia a la violencia y las dificultades en los centros urbanos, el racismo y los problemas sociales. Sus ''citas'' y letras indican que Tupac era un idealista que legítimamente cree en la igualdad de oportunidades, independientemente de la raza o nivel socioeconómico. Aunque muchas controversias rodean a Tupac, sigue siendo evidente que era un talentoso rapero que se convirtió en un icono internacional de la música con tan sólo veinte años de edad.

“To all the seeds that follow me
protect your essence
Born with less, but you still precious.”-Tupac
