Pac was really The King of the West
« on: September 23, 2009, 12:10:15 AM »
"...As far as hip-hop, I'm not the God but on the West Coast, I sold five million in two months, Biggie's album been out two years barely touching two million. This n*gga done had 50 remixes, a thousand, he got everybody in New York in his videos and still barely touching two million. I been out two months and my sh*t sold five million with two videos out, I'm just starting. These n*ggas can't touch us. They can't, really, it's funny." (from the last vibe video footage)

I mean, 2Pac was the biggest selling rapper of 1996. All Eyez On Me was hot album. There wasn't a time in 1996 where I didn't hear that album being played (if it's a tha crib or somebody elses house, in tha cars, and at parties). U can't deny that All Eyez On Me was tha album of the year 4 1996. Everybody loves that album and it was great. I mean, album cutz was being played on tha radio at that time! LOL! That album was so hot that even album tracks was being played just as well as the singles were.

People wern't buying All Eyez On Me for the lyrics, or Hip Hop value, whereas people were buying Ready To Die for the Hip Hop value of it, the more articulate aspect of it... 2Pac's was a far larger album to begin with (double album) with so much variety, stars, and hits, and the controversy around him made him an appealing star in the public eye. People just bought into it with this album, because being honest. Content, and lyrical wise Me Against The World, and Makaveli were doper albums. All Eyez On Me was more pop, so undoubtedly he would attain a bigger reception in terms of sales, it doesn't make him king of West Hip Hop, it just means he makes most money, but money isn't a precidence for skill and ability

Pac wasn't even from tha West.  He was born in NY then moved 2 Bmore, and then when he was like 16/17 he moved out to Cali.  He was only on "the westcoast" for like 2 years b4 he started goin' worldwide.  Pac can't claim "westside" like that.  He lived out BMore or Brooklyn far longer than he did Oakland (that's some fake ass shit tbh).  I never got that shit.  I mean i get tha whole, it ain't where u from its where u at or anything of that nature but u can't say/claim/represent to death (literally) another coast where ur not from.  Pac was a dumbass/dickhead/cockrider/swagger-jacker/bangwagoner 4 that

Yes, he was the king of the West. He was also so loud, obnoxious, and cocky that people in the industry still hate the West Coast because of him to this day.

This guy aint no crip, and I'm 100% sure on that because he doesn't type like a crip, I know crips, and that fool is not a crip.

That's the truth. There is far more depth in either of those albums than "All Eyez" as a whole and that album covers two discs.
