Whether underground or mainstream; Eastern, Western or Southern; street-smart or high-minded — every element of hip-hop has paid homage to 2Pac. Debated in his life, he's been deified since his death. Nas repped Queensbridge and once slung lyrical arrows at 'Pac, but with "We Will Survive" he pours out a drink from his cup for his fallen foe. After all, the erstwhile Nastradamus prophesized that "the best are supposed to clash at the top." A published poet memorized in college classrooms and corner stores, 2Pac penned words so potent that they inspired a Billboard chart's worth of rappers to reinterpret his verse. ATL MC Ludacris may have once titled an album Chicken-n-Beer, but when it came to 2Pac, he solemnly intoned "In the Depths of Solitude." A decade-and-a-half after 2Pac drew his last breath, the mention of his name rings bells like a sacred incantation. See Meek Mill's "Tupac Back (feat. Rick Ross)," a cut that riffs on rap's enduring desire for Makeveli's reincarnation. From Bay Area bombers like Spice 1 and Luniz to the philosophic New York darts of Mos Def and Talib Kweli, 2Pac remains the third rail of rap — an icon above all criticism.
