Changes is definitely the deepest song, like lyrically, or Baby Don't Cry. Both incredibly important songs. I also like Ballad of a Dead Soulja. Tupac is the GOAT. Controversial, yet still so real.

Tupac is great, but I still call Em the GOAT. Personal preference, don't argue you with me there.

My favourite song right NOW? Ghetto Gospel. DL'd it a few days ago and I love it.

As for my favourite 2pac songs... I'll say

1. ghetto gospel (just cuz I like it now, 1 month from now who knows)
2. changes (this is what got me into rap a few years ago, seriously)
3. life goes on
3. how long will they mourn me
3. runnin' ft. biggie

Definitely got love for Eminem, he's my favorite, but Tupac paved the way for rap. Since he's been gone it hasn't been the same.

I don't know much about tupac, but I heard "thug mansion," and I liked the contrast between the nice peaceful guitar, and what he was doing. I can't think of any other time I've heard rap without drums of some kind.

Runnin with big's definately good too. I loved Black Cotton for a long time too, when I first heard it. That entire first verse from Pac is just sick.

how can you say Em is the GOAT? he didnt even write the lyrics to his biggest song "loose yourself" from the 8mile soundtrack.

I dispise the album Em produced. He did a horrible job on it in my opinion. I don't really think of those songs as Tupacs' really. Because they aren't. He wouldn't like what was done as far as beats & how his voice is digitally messed with.

Check out "If I had" by Eminem. I think it's Eminem at his best lyrically. He's also was sick on Stan. That's a classic.

Meh, that was his most popular song (radio wise), but it was FAR from his best song. I don't think he's GOAT either, but that's a poor reason. He's great lyrically, but a lot of his stupid songs on his latest albums suck balls.
