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 (Red Card): "Mama don't cry, long as we try / Maybe things change /Perhaps it's just a fantasy A life where we don't need no welfare/ S*** with our whole family/ Maybe it's me that caused it/ The fighting and the hurting/ In my room crying cause I didn't want to be a burden/ Watch mama open up her arms to hug me/ And I ain't worried bout a damn thing, with unconditional love
In this game the lesson's in your eyes to see/ Though things change, the future's still inside of me/ We must remember that tomorrow comes after the dark/ So you will always be in my heart, with unconditional love"
"Unconditional Love" is a song released on January 26, 1999 by 2Pac featuring Nanci Fletcher. It was released after Tupac's death as the second single from his Greatest Hits album. The CD single is rare and was never officially released in an uncensored version.
The song was originally written for M.C. Hammer by his friend Tupac to revitalize his image when he signed to Death Row Records. However, 2Pac recorded a demo of it himself before giving the song to Hammer to record, which is where the single vocals came from.
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.
