    I was listening to a 2pac song just now and started thinking, what was it like when they both got dropped within 6 months or so? The biggest rappers out and they both got murdered? I was like 3-4 when they died so I was wondering if I could get some insight from some older Sherdoggers.

    Pac was my favorite rapper and when he died the California streets wept big time
    Muthafuckas loved Pac out here because we were all caught up in gang banging and street wars and he was our voice, he told the truth about the pain and struggles of life out here
    When Biggie died we didnt care, a lotta people celebrated

    When Mac Dre died the Bay Area was in shock because he was the king out here at the time
    Pacs death was huge all over the nation but locally Mac Dres was probably felt more

    It was a weird time then because music in general had anti-pop vibe with grunge being in the rock side and gangstar rap being popular from the hip hop side. They both fit the general vibe at the time in music. I didn't listen to rap but Cobain's death in '94 and 2pacs in '96 were really big and just fed into the entire scene.

    It felt like the closing of an era.
    Seriously, the game changed not long after. Hard/gangsta rap is never coming back. :(

    Eazy E's death the year before Pac's hit me more personally than Pac or Biggie.

    But I've always felt that "real rap" (from my point of view) died with them.

    i was pretty meh on biggie dying, wasn't a huge fan. when pac died it was more, "oh wow, thats crazy".

    i guess i didn't care as much about them, was always more a wu tang / bone thugs fan.

    I didn't care even though I liked tupacs stuff. While he was alive, everyone thought, or knew, he was an asshole.

    It was like an episode of "when keeping it real goes wrong"


    There was so much public threats theat you figured something had to give.

    I should point out that Tupac was a convicted rapist while he was alive, so the public want exactly on his side


    And biggie, was fat

    two-pack the man. i loved it when he rapped Big Poppa and was so sad when he was killed on March 9, 1997. It left a huge hole in my heart and the music industry party in Los Angeles.”

    Pac's death hit me more, but it's probably because I was a bigger fan of his than Biggie's. BIG was fantastic though.

    i can answer for myself, when Tupac died, i stopped listening to rap. I usually didnt agree with his thoughts but I respected him and his way of expressing his thoughts, he made me think.
    After Tupac i considered rappers posers

    I lived in Watts at the time and it was a huge deal when Pac died. Lots of vigils and people shooting guns off. My mother is from another country with not the best English or understanding of pop culture back then and I remember having to explain it to her.

    with 2pac it was surreal and just sad. I remember they had to remove a lung and when he passed away the local top 40 radio station announced it and played keep your head up for his fans. Tupac seemed like a good kid that got mixed up with bad ppl.


    biggie to me seemed like a real victim and going to LA was a bad idea because the east and west coast rap thing was incredibly intense. I thought it was horrible he was killed as he seemed like such a cool guy that overcame a lot of shit. puffy will always feel responsible I'm sure.

    all and all a very ugly time in rap and suge was probably responsible for both deaths.
