Sound (Yellow Card): "And all my childhood memories /Are full of all the sweet things you did for me/ And even though I act crazy/ 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"
The song Dear Mama was released as the first single off of his third album "Me Against The World" in February 1995. The song is a tribute to his mother, Afeni Shakur, in which he details his childhood poverty and his mother's addiction to crack, but concludes that his love and deep respect for his mother supersede bad memories.
Sound (Purple Card): " What you won't do, do for love/ You tried everything, but you don't give up x2
I shoulda seen you was trouble right from the start/ Taught me so many lessons
How not to mess with broken hearts, so many questions/ When this began we was the perfect match, perhaps/ We had some problems but we workin at it, and now/ The arguments are gettin' loud, I wanna stay/ But I can't help from walkin' out just a little way/ Just take my hand and understand, if you could see/ I never planned to be a man it just wasn't me/ But now I'm searchin' for commitment, in other arms/ I wanna shelter you from harm, don't be alarmed/ Your attitude was the cause, you got me stressin'/ Soon as I open up the door with your jealous questions/ Like where can I be you're killin' me with your jealousy/ Now my ambition's to be free/ I can't breathe, cause soon as I leave, it's like a trap/ I hear you callin' me to come back"
"Do for Love" was the second single by Tupac Shakur from his second after death album R U Still Down? (Remember Me) released on February 27, 1998. The song was originally titled "Sucka 4 Luv" before its release and samples "What You Won't Do for Love" by Bobby Caldwell.
Tupac Amaru Shakur aka Lesane Parish Crooks aka 2Pac, Makaveli, & Pac was and still is one of the greatest rap artists to have ever lived. He's sold over 75 millions albums worldwide and his legend continues to live on as an influence to many of today's rappers. You might know him as the face of the West Coast and label Death Row during their beef with the East Coast represented by Notorious B.I.G, Puff Daddy, and Bad Boy. You might also know him as the dude who was always shirtless, with a bandana tied around the front of his head, and a giant Thug Life tattoo shining across his stomach.
Not only did he put the "gangsta" in gangsta rap, Tupac's songs brought awareness to the violence and hardship in inner cities, racism, and other social issues faced by young black men and women. He expressed this not only in his music, but also through poetry as seen in his book The Rose That Grew From Concrete.
