    We touched on some Em lyrics in another thread that came back on topic thanks to some absolutely sterling work by another, not I :(

    So I thought it would eb fun to continue it, but where it should be, in another thread. Couple of questions, firstly, what are the thougts of everyone of Matisyahu? Is Akon that good? finally am I too old at 44 to appreciate the genius of the likes of Eminem, and Tupac?

    Here is a snippet of the genius of Tupac <God bless & keep him)>

    I refuse to be a role model
    I set goals, take control, drink out my own bottle
    I make mistakes, I learn from everyone
    And when its said and done
    I bet this Brotha be a better one
    If I'm upset, you don't stress
    Never forget, that God hasn't finished with me yet
    I feel his hand on my brain
    When I write rhymes, I go blind, and let the lord do his thang
    But am I less holy
    Cuz I choose to puff a blunt and drink a beer with my homies
    Before we find world peace
    We gotta find peace in that war on the streets
    My ghetto gospel

    For anyone interested the lyrics are from Ghetto Gospel.

    Em: "I'm like a thug with a little 'pac influence"

    Tupac, IMHO, influenced Em.

    I spit it slow so these kids know that I'm talkin to 'em
    Give it back to these damn critics and sock it to 'em
    I'm like a thug, with a little bit of 'Pac influence
    I spew it, and look how I got you b*tches rockin to it
    You motherf*ckers could NEVER do it like I could do it
    Don't even try it, you'll look stupid, do not pursue it
    Don't ever in your life try to knock the truest
    I spit the illest sh*t ever been dropped to two inch
    So ticky-tock listen as the sound ticks on the clock
    Listen to the sound of Kim as she licks on a c*ck
    Listen to the sound of me spillin my heart through this pen
    Motherf*ckers know that I'll never be Marshall again
    Full of controversy until I retire my jersey
    'Til the fire inside dies and expires at thirty
    And Lord have mercy on any more of these rappers that verse me
    And put a curse on authorities in the face of adversity

    Tupac - Dear Momma

    You are appreciated

    When I was young me and my mama had beef
    Seventeen years old kicked out on the streets
    Though back at the time, I never thought I'd see her face
    Ain't a woman alive that could take my mama's place
    Suspended from school; and scared to go home, I was a fool
    with the big boys, breakin all the rules
    I shed tears with my baby sister
    Over the years we was poorer than the other little kids
    And even though we had different daddy's, the same drama
    When things went wrong we'd blame mama
    I reminice on the stress I caused, it was hell
    Huggin on my mama from a jail cell
    And who'd think in elementary?
    Heeey! I see the penitentiary, one day
    And runnin from the police, that's right
    Mama catch me, put a whoopin to my backside
    And even as a crack fiend, mama
    You always was a black queen, mama
    I finally understand
    for a woman it ain't easy tryin to raise a man
    You always was committed
    A poor single mother on welfare, tell me how ya did it
    There's no way I can pay you back
    But the plan is to show you that I understand
    You are appreciated

    Don't cha know we love ya? Sweet lady
    Dear mama
    Place no one above ya, sweet lady
    You are appreciated
    Don't cha know we love ya?

    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 lookin 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 hangin
    I needed money of my own so I started slangin
    I ain't guilty cause, even though I sell rocks
    It feels good puttin money in your mailbox
    I love payin rent when the rent's due
    I hope ya got the diamond necklace that I sent to you
    Cause when I was low you was there for me
    And never left me alone because you cared for me
    And I could see you comin home after work late
    You're in the kitchen tryin to fix us a hot plate
    Ya just workin with the scraps you was given
    And mama made miracles every Thanksgivin
    But now the road got rough, you're alone
    You're tryin to raise two bad kids on your own
    And there's no way I can pay you back
    But my plan is to show you that I understand
    You are appreciated

    Pour out some liquor and I reminsce, cause through the drama
    I can always depend on my mama
    And when it seems that I'm hopeless
    You say the words that can get me back in focus
    When I was sick as a little kid
    To keep me happy there's no limit to the things you did
    And all my childhood memories
    Are full of all the sweet things you did for me
    And even though I act craaazy
    I gotta thank the Lord that you made me
    There are no words that can express how I feel
    You never kept a secret, always stayed real
    And I appreciate, how you raised me
    And all the extra love that you gave me
    I wish I could take the pain away
    If you can make it through the night there's a brighter day
    Everything will be alright if ya hold on
    It's a struggle everyday, gotta roll on
    And there's no way I can pay you back
    But my plan is to show you that I understand
    You are appreciated
