Tupac / 2pac quotes on life, music, blessings, power and death

2pac, Quotations, Quotes, Tupac

These are some Tupac quotes not necessarily from his music (some are, though). They’re from interviews with him and old video footage of 2Pac.

The people made me from the littlest crack head to the biggest baller so if I’m bad it’s because of the bay and if I’m good it’s because of the bay
– Tupac

I believe that everything you do bad comes back to you. So everything that I do that’s bad, I’m going to suffer for it. But in my heart, I believe what I’m doing… is right. So I feel like I ‘m going to heaven. I think heaven is just when you sleep, you sleep with a good conscience, you don’t have nightmares. Hell is when you sleep, the last thing you see is all the fucked up things you did in your life and you just see it over and over again, cause you don’t burn. If that’s the case, it’s hell on earth cause bullets burn.
– 2pac

Only God can judge me.
– 2pac

Hell, no. There’s nobody in the business strong enough to scare me.
– Tupac, when asked whether he went to Death Row Records for protection.

I’m tired of being a nice guy, i’ve been poor all my life, but don’t know quite why, so they label me a lunatic, could care less death or success, is what I quest cause i’m fearless.
– Tupac

We talk a lot about Malcom X and Martin Luther King JR, but It’s time to be like them, as strong as them. They were mortal men like us and everyone of us can be like them. I don’t want to be a role model. I just want to be someone who says, this is who i am, this is what i do. I say what’s on my mind.
– 2pac

As far as jealousy, being a celebrity, no matter who committed the crime, they all yell at me. And the media is greedier than most. You could sell em’ your soul and they’ll be on ya till a nigga’s a ghost. And everyday I read the paper, there’s another lie. They show my picture for the crimes of another guy.
– 2pac

Well, the first two days in prison, I had to go through what life is like when you’ve been smoking weed for as long as I have and then you stop. Emotionally, it was like I didn’t know myself.
– Tupac

I feel like Black Jesus got his hands on me and guides me through life to put me where I’m supposed to be…
– Tupac

Life’s a wheel of fortune and it’s my chance to spin it.
– 2Pac

I thought I had friends but in the end niggaz die lonely.
– 2Pac

In my death, people will understand what I was talking about.
– Tupac

Now the whole worlds callin’ me a killer; all I ever did was try to reach the kids with the realer.
– Tupac

How can I survive? Got me askin white Jesus, will a nigga live or die, cause the Lord can’t see us in the deep dark clouds of the projects, ain’t no sunshine no sunny days
– 2pac

I am societies’ child, this is how they made me, and now I’m sayin what’s on my mind and they don’t want that. This is what you made me America.
– Tupac talking about society

Let me say for the record, I am not a gangster and never have been. I’m not the thief who grabs your purse. I’m not the guy who jacks your car. I’m not down with the people who steal and hurt others. I’m just a brother who fights back.
– Tupac on life

My only fear of death is comin’ back reincarnated.
– Tupac on death

I’m 100% percent original, and that’s what got me here. My rap music is more understandable, slower. It tells a story. You can write a book on each of my thoughts.
– Tupac on rapping

It always happens, all the niggaz that change the world die, they don;t get to die like regular people, they die violently.
– Tupac on death

If you walked by a street and you was walking a concrete and you saw a rose growing from concrete, even if it had messed up petals and it was a little to the side you would marvel at just seeing a rose grow through concrete. So way is it that when you see some ghetto kid grow out of the dirtiest circumstance and he can talk and he can sit across the room and make you cry, make you laugh, all you can talk about is my dirty rose, my dirty stems and how am leaning crooked to the side, you can’t even see that I’ve come up from out of that.
– Tupac on a rose growing from the sidewalk

You gotta make a change. Its time for us as a people to start making some changes, lets change the way we eat, lets change the way we live, and lets change the way we treat each other. You see the old way wasn’t working so its on US, to do what we gotta do to survive.
– Tupac on changes

The american dream wasn’t meant for me, cause lady liberty’s a hypocrite she lied to me, promised me freedom, education, and equality never gave me nothing but slavery but now look at how dangerous you made me callin me a mad man because im strong and bold.
– Tupac on freedom

Everybody’s at war with different things…I’m at war with my own heart sometimes
– Tupac on himself

They got money for wars but they can’t feed the poor.
– Tupac on the poor

The only thing America respects is power and power concedes nothing. After the LA Riots, they tried to calm us down and nothing changed since.
– Tupac on power

I truly believe I’ve been blessed by God, and God walks with me
– 2pac on blessings

Though our hands are chained like they are, they haven’t taken music from us yet. So that’s how I’ll fight. People tell me don’t quit like everyone else. I won’t have fear.
– Tupac on music

When I die and they come for me bury me a g

The main reason of Tupac quotes are to show his pain , his discrepancy against the system . He fight for people like him who lived in the middle of war drugs and murders to give them a reason to live . To show them that in life have plenty of beautiful thing to fight for.
