In the video Tupac Uncensored And Uncut The Lost Prison , Tupac discusses many topics. He goes from talking about the music industry to gangs to the problems of America. He starts off by talking about how he was being ridiculed for the lyrics in his songs. He felt that it was unfair because what he was saying was nothing compared to what other rappers were rapping about. I would have to agree with him on that, I always felt that Tupac was a real rapper, when I say real I mean rapping about real things. He rapped about real life topics unlike the majority of rappers that are out there today. When you turn on the radio all you hear is songs that revolve around money, sex and drugs. There are many rappers out there that down grade women in their songs, so because of all that I think Tupac should have been the last rapper to be ridiculed over his lyrics.
In the interview he also talks about how gangs should be used to benefit communities and not destroy them. He even says that America is the biggest gang ever and at first I was like what in the world is he talking about and then went he went a little more into detail, it made more sense to me. America is the country that always tries to rescue other countries. He states that whenever another country has a natural disaster or any type of problem, America runs on over and gives aid. When theres violence that goes on in other countries, America feels like its their responsibility to “fix” the problem. Their method is to contribute to the violence. Its always the problems that have nothing to do with our country, yet we always find our way in. Overall I found the video very powerful, Tupac`s words were memorizing I couldn’t help but listen to what he had to say.
