Zitat des Tages von Tupac Shakur:
What I learned in jail is that I can't change. I can't live a different lifestyle - this is it. This is the life that they gave and this is the life that I made.
Is it a crime, to fight, for what is mine?
I'm 23 years old. I might just be my mother's child, but in all reality, I'm everybody's child. Nobody raised me; I was raised in this society.
If I win and get the money, then the Oakland Police department is going to buy a boys' home, me a house, my family a house, and a Stop Police Brutality Center.
It seems like every time you come up something happens to bring you back down.
Thug Life to me is dead.
We all gonna die, we bleed from similar veins.
I don't have no fear of death. My only fear is coming back reincarnated.
I just don't know how to deal with so many people giving me that much affection. I never had that in my life.
Somebody help me, tell me where to go from here cause even Thugs cry, but do the Lord care?
Reality is wrong. Dreams are for real.
With all my fans I got a family again.
My mama always used to tell me: 'If you can't find somethin' to live for, you best find somethin' to die for.'
The only thing that comes to a sleeping man is dreams.
I don't see myself being special; I just see myself having more responsibilities than the next man. People look to me to do things for them, to have answers.
Dre was one of my heros in the music industry. If he's not down for his homeboys, I don't wanna be a part of him or around him.
I just spent 11 and a half months in a maximum-security jail, got shot five times, and was wrongly convicted of a crime I didn't commit.
If you believe in God, believe in Death Row East.
There's nobody in the business strong enough to scare me.
When you do rap albums, you got to train yourself. You got to constantly be in character.
Don't change on me. Don't extort me unless you intend to do it forever.
Let the Lord judge the criminals.
In my mind I'm a blind man doin' time.
I worked hard all my life as far as this music business. I dreamed of the day when I could go to New York and feel comfortable and they could come out here and be comfortable.
I think I'm a natural-born leader. I know how to bow down to authority if it's authority that I respect.
I'm a reflection of the community.
I'll probably be punished for hard living.
It's the game of life. Do I win or do I lose? One day they're gonna shut the game down. I gotta have as much fun and go around the board as many times as I can before it's my turn to leave.
The only time I have problems is when I sleep.
