When I was young me and my mama had beef

Though back at the time, I never thought I'd see her face

I love this side of Tupac. The softer, intelligent side that told a story and showed someone the life others may have lived. All his raps will stand the test of time. This will stand the test of time. SIP

Now ain't nobody tell us it was fair..
No love from my daddy cause the coward wasn't there.
He passed away and I didn't cry, cause my anger,
wouldn't let me feel for a stranger.
They say I'm wrong and I'm heartless, but all along,
I was looking for a father he was gone .
I hung around with the Thugs, and even though they sold drugs,
They showed a young brother love.
I moved out and started really hanging.
I needed money of my own so I started slangin'..

R.I.P. Afeni Shakur. Dear Mama spoke to so many people. Lines like "the road got tough youre alone, trying to raise 2 bad kids on your own" and "poor single mother on welfare" felt like Pac could relate to exactly to my childhood. One of those songs that get you emotional.

Don't read this. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. Don't stop this is freaky! But if you read this and ignore it you will get bad luck. Put this on 15 songs in 143 minutes. When you are done press the space bar and your crushes name will appear in big letters on the screen. This is so creepy because it actually work (RYAN)
