Vices music site Noisey is reassuring readers, You Dont Have to Worship 2pac. And I, for one, am relieved. I wasnt wild about getting that Thug Life tattoo.
It seems that Recent criticism of the rap icon from Lil Xan and 03 Greedo forces us to ask whether or not our heroes are beyond reproach. Heroes assuredly are not beyond reproach. Neither is Noiseys definition of hero.
Its certainly not for me to judge Tupac Shakurs music, but people who can tell the difference (and Ill assume Lil Xan and 03 Greedo are among them) havent been uniformly impressed. According to Noisey contributor Lawrence Burney, While covering Shakurs 1995 trial for allegedly raping a woman in a hotel in 1993 for the Village Voice, hip-hop journalist Touré proposed that while Pac was one of the most famous rappers on the planet, he was merely an average vocalist and lyricist (Thats the same Touré whos for years been a talking head on MSNBC. Surely he can afford a last name by now?)
Did you catch the context there? A rape trial. A few sentences later we learn that Users accused Pac of pimping out the gangsta persona once signing to Death Row, while others cited his shooting of two off-duty cops in Georgia as reason for why he was the realest of all rappers.
Hmmm. How else did Noiseys hero keep it real? Some highlights:

Well heck yeah. Pervs United local 871.

The left has won the war for TV material, at a time when “people that matter” realize TV usually just makes people stupid. This pandering to blacks, women, deviants, etc. in the TV arena is just a desperate attempt to keep the last demographics that even bother watching...
