2Pac, when he became famous, got
access to the gangster world then acted
like he's been that. Biggie's roots were in
hard streets, and he used music to free
himself from the oppressive bondage of
gang life. One is a poser and was acting
like it was some fun game to play. One
knew the truly ugly side to it and wanted
to articulate it.
The genesis of 2Pac:
In words of 2Pac himself, "My major thing
growing up was I couldn't fit in. Because I
was from everywhere.
I didn't have no buddies that I grew up
with."
Uno mas, ""I don't know. I just didn't feel
hard. I could do all the things my mother
could give me, but she couldn't give me
nothing else."
At age 12 he joined the 127th Street
ensemble, a play group.
At age 15 he started enjoying rap in New
York. He started walking with a swag and
called himself MC New York. That didn't
pan out.
So he enrolled in the PRESTIGIOUS
Baltimore School of Arts. And it was from
there that he wanted to become an
artist, "But I loved it. I loved going to
school. It taught me a lot. I was starting
to feel like I really wanted to be an artist."
Then he got into rapping subsequently he
felt the need to start submerging
himself more gangs for the image.
The Difference:
Biggie grew up in tough street. He never
got to go to good, white-kid schools. He
witnissed alot more friends dieing at a
young age. Since he lived a genuine
gangster life at such a young age he
knew it was nothing to pose about.
As the Rolling Stones writes, "By the time
he was 15, Wallace [Biggie] was selling
crack in Brooklyn's
Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood."
But then he began giving it up for rap, as
he realized that rap could work as his
freedom.
2Pac and Biggie both got entangled in
gangs. ONLY ONE though actually had his
roots there. ONLY ONE though was
actually honest with his lyrics when he
talked about those roots. ONLY ONE was
more relatable , as he was telling the
truth. ONLY ONE saw the stupidity of the
gangster world. And that was Notorious
B.I.G.
THE QUESTION ?
An important question to ask his who left
the bigger, more important legacy. The
reason this is a good question is it
determines who left a bigger "splash in
pond." It is also a point in this debate
where some objective truth can be
found.
2Pac's legacy:
2Pac undoubtedly left behind a legacy.
But it doesn't take long to figure out
what the main legacy was. The scandal is
by far the biggest ripple-effect 2Pac
caused. Who killed him? He'll be back in 7
years! He's not dead! The debate over the
details of his death was, unfortunatly for
him, the legacy he left behind.
Notorious B. I. G.'s legacy analyzed:
Biggie however because he was only
caught up in music and not posing a
gangster life, set a huge legacy in the
music industry. Sean Combs, one of the
richest men, in America, according to
Rolling Stones, owes his success as the
industry's greatest producer to the
efforts of Notorious B.I.G. Meaning Biggie
created today the goliath producing
company ran by Sean Combs. Sean even
mentions in his debut solo album in the
song "I'll Be Missing You." This fact alone
outweighs 2Pac, as he lacked any
contribution to music industry.
There is more to this point, but thats all
for now.
SUMMARY:
Biggie had:
1. He had better delivery.
2. He had truth behind his words when
talking about gangs.
3. Was far less supportive of dangerous
gang life than 2Pac
4. Subsequently, of 2 and 3, related more
to those on the streets.
5. Left a huge legacy in the music
industry by creating the producing giant
Sean Combs

I was surprised their was so much ignorance about BIG on this forum. Haters galore.
Listen to these songs (doubt most of you have heard them the way you talk) and then talk about BIG:
Everyday Struggle
Things Done Changed
Notorious Thugs
I Got A Story to Tell
The only knock on BIG is that he only put out two CD's and 'Pac has a large body of work. I love 'Pac. He is absolutely one of the best MC's and most likely the most influential rap has ever seen. However, best MC ever? Yeah, right. Ya'll just don't know hip-hop. Ever listen to KRS-One, Scarface, Rakim? The list goes on, man.
And BIG or 'Pac? It's gotta go to BIG. Love 'Pac, but when it comes to who had the best flows it was BIG, no doubt.
And ya'll are a bunch of haters who don't know shit about hip-hip who say BIG is weak. I don't see BIG fans talking about 'Pac that way. Ya'll just heard 'Pac's lyrics about fuck BIG and you're jocking on 'Pac's cock. Ha! Both were dope, and there is NO WAY that BIG is a copycat. Again, you've never really listened to him if you think that. They have completely different styles/lyrics/messages.
PEACE
you krazy real pac fans heard every album not just f biggie lol it took biggie how many yearz to make 2 albums ? By the way his flow was weak !
