I do think rappers who exhibit similar lifestyles to Tupac Shakur and write songs similar to his should speak out against his shooting death in 1996. The reason for this is because it would promote positivity in hip hop, and hip hop needs a lot of positivity. Especially in today's era.
I think the east coast vs west coast thing got way out of hand. There is enough tension in the air right now. We don't need anymore. The world of rap has calmed down a lot after that,but it could easily rise up again and attack the very people it was meant to entertain.
No, today's rappers should not need to speak out against the shooting death of Tupac. Most modern rappers were not involved with the shooting death or the reasons behind it, so they should not be associated with the repercussions. Instead of speaking out against something of which they had no part, they should instead try to be better role models for future generations.
No, rappers who exhibit similar lifestyles to Tupac Shakur and write songs similar to his should not speak out against his shooting death, because that would be giving lip service to a problem. The best thing that they can do is to actually change their lifestyles. This would be a real service to young people.
I do not believe that rappers today who have the same beliefs and style of Tupac Shakur should write songs that speak out against his shooting death in 1996. Just because they may have the same lifestyle and principles, I do not think it is necessary for them to be writing songs to honor the rapper.
