- West Coast v East Coast
To be or not to be? What becomes of the broken hearted? Why do some people clap when the plane lands? These are some of questions that have plagued the human race since the dawn of time. However there is one that is perhaps the most contested of them all, particularly in the wake of the release of motion picture 'All Eyez on Me'. That question is 'Biggie or 2Pac?' 'Notorious or Shakur?' 'Big Poppa or Makaveli?'.
This West Coast / East Coast divide has separated families, lovers and middle class white kids all over the world since the mid nineties, so in textbook 'What The Funk?' style we've drawn up a head to head review of the hip hop legends:
Biggest Thug: Tupac Shakur
There would be no 'Thug Lyf' vines if it was not for this chap. Let that sink in. This guy pioneered the art of thuggery, so much so he felt compelled to tattoo the phrase on his torso. Winner.
Best Role Model for Young Children: neither of the above
If you want to give your little one an introduction to hip hop, perhaps looks elsewhere. Recommended alternative: Lethal Bizzle
Well there you have it. You couldn't write that, could you - a draw. There seems to be nothing to separate the two; suppose it's down to personal preference, eh?
