When I was young me and my mama had beef

Though back at the time, I never thought I'd see her face

Love this song one of my favorites by Pac. I idolized this man growing up in the late 90s was in middle school lol.I was blown away by his passion for everything and how much he wanted to connect to the common man and to the world how hard it is to be a black man livin in a white man's world.We both have things in common and He's gotta be the one of the most relatable,or i g i n a l , r e a l e s t influential, r e s p e c t a b l e rappers to ever touch the Mic. He will always be a legend in my book...
