100 thoughts on “2Pac – Changes ft. Talent”

  1. 2Pac – Rap God
    Eminem – Rap Jesus
    Biggie Smalls – Rap King
    Eazy E – Rap Gangsta

    lil pump – just…. Nobody. He doesn't exist for me

    Edit: every good rapper that i didn't mention – Rap Thugs

  2. Funny, Tupac got his wish through whom he called his heart in human form in Jada Pinkett Smith's offspring. His song "changes" says "let's change the way we eat, change the way we live, change the way we treat each other." and Jaden Smith embodies all these changes Tupac wanted with his passion for the environment and sustainability, having Just Water and promoting a plant based diet, driving a Tesla, treating humans better and just being conscious of environmental sustainability, renewability and accessibility by giving out plant based meals to the homeless for his birthday. Tupac's dream on his song "Changes" are coming true through one of his closest friends children. Jaden Smith Carrie's Tupac's will though they are not directly related (almost like One Piece).. I wonder if Jada Pinkett Smith even realizes this, her son with Will Smith embodies EVERYTHING Tupac wanted down to changing the way us men treat women!

  3. I wish that I could meet 2Pac rather than hearing about these mumble rappers and stupid clout chasers not respecting what old generation of rap has done for black community

  4. Yeah! Finally an English caption/subtitle on the official 2Pac YT channel 😀 I'm so proud for this moment 🙂 Because I'm a deaf man, with CI, I'm a hard hearing man. That's why I need subtitles a lot for music video's.

  5. Dear folks and 2Pac,
    if I may have the right to write:
    It is a little bit like 2Pac had been knowing for times and ages that he is the only one in his own class, he never really had needed to defend, if you may mention that.
    On first sight a good boy in heart and mind.
    I don't know what went wrong in his life anyway that somebody had to shoot someone like him.
    In my heart glows forever one candle for him, even one is not hot and wide enough to warm the heart of racists.

    Respect each other
    and
    reflect yourself.

    MJM –
    the Chief-Captain of values and underrated heroes and heroines –

  6. This is why tupac will always stand out as a legend. These rappers today ONIY talk about partying, sex and smoking. The few that do have a positive message are very few and far between. No one makes postivie music anymore

  7. "if you cant FLY run
    "if you cant run walk
    "if u cant walk crwal"
    Anything to keep u going 👏🏽💪🏽💙

  8. 2019 and it's still the best..this man will still be played in 30 years time Peace makaveli. and fuckin gay ass Kanye and drake won't cause they will be losers then like they are now

  9. We miss u 2pac I started watching u when I was 3 years old I used to watch ur movies and when the music used to come on I used to pretend I was a dj for u we wish u were still here but u in our hearts 2pac ❤️💗rip

  10. Верните Тупака и заберите половину новой школы, хуже точно не будет, отвечаю!(

  11. lil pump will have little to no views on a song 23 years after he dies, TUPAC has 100 million views on a song 23 years after his death. This is a HUGE accomplishment.

  12. Come on come on
    I see no changes wake up in the morning and I ask myself
    Is life worth living should I blast myself?
    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
    First ship 'em dope and let 'em deal the brothers
    Give 'em guns step back watch 'em kill each other
    It's time to fight back that's what Huey said
    Two shots in the dark now Huey's dead
    I got love for my brother but we can never go nowhere
    Unless we share with each other
    We gotta start makin' changes
    Learn to see me as a brother instead of two distant strangers
    And that's how it's supposed to be
    How can the Devil take a brother if he's close to me?
    I'd love to go back to when we played as kids
    But things changed, and that's the way it is

    That's just the way it is
    Things will never be the same
    That's just the way it is
    Aww yeah

    That's just the way it is
    Things will never be the same
    That's just the way it is
    Aww yeah

    I see no changes all I see is racist faces
    Misplaced hate makes disgrace to races
    We under I wonder what it takes to make this
    One better place, let's erase the wasted
    Take the evil out the people they'll be acting right
    'Cause both black and white is smokin' crack tonight
    And only time we chill is when we kill each other
    It takes skill to be real, time to heal each other
    And although it seems heaven sent
    We ain't ready, to see a black President, uhh
    It ain't a secret don't conceal the fact
    The penitentiary's packed, and it's filled with blacks
    But some things will never change
    Try to show another way but you stayin' in the dope game
    Now tell me what's a mother to do
    Bein' real don't appeal to the brother in you
    You gotta operate the easy way
    "I made a G today" But you made it in a sleazy way
    Sellin' crack to the kid. " I gotta get paid, "
    Well hey, well that's the way it is

    That's just the way it is
    Things will never be the same
    That's just the way it is
    Aww yeah

    That's just the way it is
    Things will never be the same
    That's just the way it is
    Aww yeah

    We gotta make a change
    It's time for us as a people to start makin' some changes.
    Let's change the way we eat, let's change the way we live
    And let's change the way we treat each other.
    You see the old way wasn't working so it's on us to do
    What we gotta do, to survive.

    And still I see no changes can't a brother get a little peace
    It's war on the streets and the war in the Middle East
    Instead of war on poverty they got a war on drugs
    So the police can bother me
    And I ain't never did a crime I ain't have to do
    But now I'm back with the blacks givin' it back to you
    Don't let 'em jack you up, back you up,
    Crack you up and pimp smack you up
    You gotta learn to hold ya own
    They get jealous when they see ya with ya mobile phone
    But tell the cops they can't touch this
    I don't trust this when they try to rush I bust this
    That's the sound of my tool you say it ain't cool
    My mama didn't raise no fool
    And as long as I stay black I gotta stay strapped
    And I never get to lay back
    'Cause I always got to worry 'bout the pay backs
    Some buck that I roughed up way back
    Comin' back after all these years
    Rat-a-tat-tat-tat-tat that's the way it is uhh

    That's just the way it is
    Things will never be the same
    That's just the way it is
    Aww yeah

    That's just the way it is
    Things will never be the same
    That's just the way it is
    Aww yeah

    Some things will never change

  13. 2Pac music always kept me going even through all my hard times. thank you Pac for the best music out there. I'm not even sure if i'd still be alive today if it were not for your music.

  14. People complain that there aren't rappers like him today.. there are you just don't know them bc you don't bother to listen to them

  15. Born 1986
    Listend to this song 1998 with 12 years
    Listened to it now in 2019 with 33 years

    "I'd love to go back to when we played as kids
    But things change… and that's the way it is"

    This one hit hard.

  16. All respect to Tupac but lil pump made it up his own way and even though he’s not as talented as pac he still deserves credit for making it his own way. Imagine if people copied pac, that would be a lot worse. Makes his music one of a kind.

  17. Wake up in the morning and I ask my self is life worth the living should I blast my self -2pac
    ~ connects me some how I ask my self everyday

  18. Tupac will always be remembered. Its unbelieveable that we keep his legacy alive even in 2019. His music is from the heart. He spoke of others pain and struggle and seen the beauty in everyone in the struggle. Most music is and always has been about acquiring material, money, drugs and violence. Tupac blessed us with beautiful music he spoke from his heart . Gone but never forgotten.
