Elvis changed our entire culture and is arguaby the most recognizable face anywhere in the world. And when I was talking generations, it was a generalization, mostly 1954-1960ish, back when being an R&B artist, or any musician really, actually meant something.

Alright, I gottcha.

I also think Michael Jackson took over the title as most recognizable face anywhere in the world.

Tupac and Biggy were the greatest.

nope, someone already said this, but they're overrated and the best things that happened to their careers were their deaths. Tupac had some good songs, but half of his songs contradicted the other half. So I don't see any of his songs as having a good message because he obviously only did it for the money. He rolled with the flow and wrote rap songs about whatever would sell. I personally think that he wasn't even that good until he teamed up with Dre. Biggie was much more real but still overrated because of his death.

I'm not a huge gangsta rap fan, but Ice Cube and Dre are much better than Tupac and Biggie in my eyes, because they are the masterminds behind the music and have just as much flow behind their raps as Pac or Biggie...

He's been dead for 11 years, if he was alive I'm pretty sure he would've showed up by now. He could easily make $100 million in a few months with tours, shoots, advertising, speaking, book, etc. He would have to be an idiot to "stay" dead.

Tupac is dead. End of story.

You don't have to say that.

If he's dead, then R.I.P.
