25 People Who Think Kanye West is the New 2Pac

kanyetupaccc 25 People Who Think Kanye West is the New 2Pac

Musically, 2Pac and Kanye West don’t have a lot in common, but if you’ve watched Kanye West’s Zane Lowe interview or last night’s appearance on Jimmy Kimmel‘s show, you can’t help but see a little bit of Pac in Kanye. He’s speaking with passion and arrogance, using a public platform to talk about race, music, and the problems with society, and he’s doing it without playing by the typical media-friendly rules.

Comparing Kanye to 2Pac is going to be considered blasphemous by some—and to be fair, there are some drastic differences—but it’s hard to ignore. It seems like Kanye is at a place in his life where his ambition goes way beyond hip-hop and entertainment, and whether or not you like it, the 2Pac comparisons are coming.

    If you idiots are okay with putting Tupac and Kanye West in the same category I strongly suggest you go back to school and get an education and fucking clue. If I were tupac I would be MORTIFIED that anyone would associate me with a such an egocentric, selfish, obnoxious rambler who’s music is not that great, in my opinion. I liked the “thru the wire” Kanye… not this new reality star white boy fake as my lashes Kanye. Fuck that nigga. P&P needs to get a damn clue and stop sounding so ignorant with titles such as this. Only ppl who think Kanye is the new Tupac are 14 year old who have no clue who tupac is. DUMBASSES.

    don’t you know you’re only allowed to recognize artists once they die?

    Just watch those two interviews. I understand how some people view Kanye West and how people look back on 2Pac. But watch those two interviews. Listen to what they’re saying. Try to forget your perception of Kanye and just listen to what he’s saying. Why do you think people are drawing these comparisons?

    Yeah I also think you can put Tupac on Kanye’s level. He was way below.

    Your level of ignorance stifles your ability to have opinions as a human being. The progression of wisdom that 2 Pac and Kanye bring to the table are not for the uneducated but appeals them because both artist have to dumb down their lyrics. The Passion Kanye has is the same amount of passion 2 Pac (Kanye is just not wrapped up in the Thug life like Pac was). Their intelligence and up bringing are pretty damn close to (in the fact that both their parents were extremely educated people). If 2 Pac were alive Kanye would be his disciple and lil Wanye would not be allowed a stage. Honestly, Pac was arrogant asshole and in most of his movie roles he played an arrogant asshole that fucked shit up. It look like the only person that needs education is you. I mean, if youre going comment a message board about rap you should bring some facts to back the P&P are idiots for reporting other peoples opinions. HOW HAS THE JUICE NOW P&P…HOW…Omar?

    Also when we have to go back to school to get an education do we also have to buy the game clue or get a clue? Not sure.

    Its an insult to compare both of them. Tupac is the best!

    Comparing Kanye to 2 Pac is like comparing Van Gogh to Michelangelo. Two completely different styles but both artist had a passion that impacted art in a large way. And both Van Gogh and Michelangelo are still relevant artist in this day in age. BOOM. Get of Pac dick. KING PUSH JUST KILLED RAP AND REVIVED WITH ONE ALBUM. P&P whats the deal?

    Kanye West is not the “new” 2pac. He is the first (and last) Kanye West. Don’t compare apples to oranges.

  • Ave

    Funny Thing is Pac and Kanye are Both Gemini’s…

    I don’t think anyone is comparing them musically. It’s their f*** the media attitude, emotional reactions, and failure to follow the typical “rules” of a celeb. I’m surprised no one compared them before. When Kanye made that Bush comment after Katrina it reminded me of something 2pac might’ve said in the midst of media attention. Nothing for Kanye fans or 2pac fans to get their panties in a bunch about.

    Hell No. I like Kanye but he is 36 complaining about fashion and acceptance to European culture while Pac was preaching about the inner city and the ghetto at 21.
