Notorious B.I.G. “And if you don’t know, now you know, When I was dead broke, man I couldn’t picture this… I made the change from a common thief to up close and personal with Robin Leach…”
People often remember the negative said or done by someone, but both Tupac and Notorious B.I.G. are forever kings in the rap world and have left some positive words that can inspire today’s and future generations.
They both faced their own struggles and triumph over them to revolutionalize the rap world.
Tupac’s inspirational words that all of us can find some form of hope in them:
“Here’s a message to the newborns, waitin to breathe. If you believe then you can achieve just look at me… My mama always used to tell me: ‘If you can’t find somethin’ to live for, you best find somethin’ to die for… Don’t settle for less – even a genius asks-es questions. Be grateful for blessings. Don’t ever change, keep your essence… Never surrender, it’s all about the faith you got: don’t ever stop, just push it ’till you hit the top and if you drop, at least you know you gave your all to be true to you that way you can never fall… For every dark night, there’s a brighter day.”
While both rappers have cemented their place in rap history, they have also touched people’s hearts and minds around the globe who have taken the time to listen the powerful words spit by these two legendary rap kings.
Notorious B.I.G. words of inspiration:
“It was all a dream. I used to read Word Up magazine. Salt’n’Pepa and Heavy D up in the limousine. Hangin’ pictures on my wall… the teachers that told me I’d never amount to nothin’, to all the people that lived above the buildings that I was hustlin’ in front of that called the police on me when I was just tryin’ to make some money to feed my daughter… I never thought it could happen, this rappin’ stuff… We can’t change the world until we change ourselves… Stay far from timid only make moves when you’re heart’s in it, and live the phrase the sky’s the limit… Never let them know your next move.”
