    So Pac died about 15 years ago ... I must admit I was a big fan when I was a teenager (who wasn't back in the early/mid 90's?). Now that I'm older and wiser I think his catalog is somewhat uneven (lots of BS thuggish tracks with unfocused production) yet no one can deny his talent as an artist.

    So what's your favorite Tupac track? Choose only one and tell us why.

    Personally I'd go with "Temptations". The Easy Mo Bee beat goes hard, really feeling the dark, jazzy vibe. Needless to say we can all relate to the theme.

    This was my favorite simply because I've never really been into the whole West Coast Style...but this song really felt like a NYC track to me at the time that it came out. I was luving this because I always wanted to add some tupac in my set but my set was all RnB and boom bapp. "I Get Around" made the transition much easier with its more east coast sound.

    West Coast "style" is funk based....if you're not down with "funk"....I don't know what to say.

    Pac's style was more East/West imo....hell..he's from NY just raised in L.A. He really didn't go all out "gangsta westcoast" til Death Row. Most of his crew the OUTLAWZ are from NY and New Jersey not Cali.
