2pac/Tupac Shakur’s Top Fifteen (15) RELEASED SINGLES {Plus Journey through his life}

dECIDED tO make a top 15 for the greatest rapper to ever grace the game. I give him the edge over biggie, not because he had more hits (according to the billboard charts) but because he was more diverse in the topics he wrote and rapped about, as well as, slightly better lyrically. This is actually SOLELY MY VIEWS, unlike the other “TOP” CHARTS I have on this blog.

1.”Dear Mama”

2.”Changes”

3.”Brenda’s Got a Baby”

4.”Keep Ya Head Up”/(Baby Don’t Cry (Keep Ya Head Up II)” )

5.”I Get Around” (feat. Digital Underground)

6.”California Love” (feat. Dr. Dre & Roger Troutman)

7.”How Do U Want It” (feat. K-Ci and JoJo)

8.”Do for Love”

9.”Until the End of Time” (feat. R.L.)

10.”Hail Mary”

11.”2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted” (feat. Snoop Dogg)

12.”I Ain’t Mad at Cha” (feat. Danny Boy)

13.”Thugz Mansion” (feat. Nas)

14.”So Many Tears”

15.”Pour Out a Little Liquor” (feat. Thug Life)

CLOSE CALLS:
“Hit ‘Em Up” (feat. Outlawz)
“All Bout U” (feat. Nate Dogg, Snoop Dogg, Hussein Fatal & Yaki Kadafi)
