** Chino XL - Chino's style involves dissing pretty much ''everyone'', and his song "Riiiot!" has a line poking fun at the theory that 2Pac [[PrisonRape was raped in jail]]. Pac didn't take too kindly to this, and included a quick diss on "Hit Em Up" ("Chino XL, '''fuck you too!'''"). Amusingly, the song also dissed ''Biggie'', with a line poking fun at "Biggie's stretch marks".

Amusingly, the song also dissed ''Biggie'', with a line poking fun at "Biggie's stretch marks". For what it's worth, Chino claimed that he wasn't really dissing Pac with that line, and that the emphasis was on "trying ''not'' to get fucked", as Pac was definitely trying not to get raped while in jail. Either way, the two eventually ironed out the misunderstanding and were on good terms at the time of Pac's death.

* AnimatedMusicVideo: "Do For Love".
* AngryBlackMan: He fulfills this trope in the song ''Changes'' also in the song ''Trapped'' and you can hear a little of this in the song ''Ballad of a dead Soldier'' . Also, "Holla If Ya Hear Me."

** Music/JayZ - Jay-Z never dissed 2Pac, but due to being a prominent East Coast rapper who was good friends with Biggie, he still fell into 2Pac's crosshairs. Most infamously, the song "Fuck Friendz" had the line "Ain't no nigga like me / Fuck Jay-Z!", which Nas would later sample on his own Jay-Z diss "Ether". "Hit Em Up" also originally had a line aimed at Jay-Z, but the Outlawz felt that he didn't really have anything to do with the beef and talked Pac into taking it out. On his end, Jay had his own diss aimed at 2Pac, but when Pac died, he opted not to release it out of respect.

The intro to "Bomb First (My Second Reply)" also mentions Jay as being "of 'Hawaiian Sophie' fame", which was a Jaz-O song that Jay guested on and is infamous for being his first appearance in a music video, which featured him looking [[OldShame very uncool]] in a [[HawaiianShirtedTourist Hawaiian shirt and lei]].

In addition to his music, Shakur was also one of the first rappers to have a successful acting career. What separates him from the others (and what many people didn't realize), is that he actually went to school for acting and would have seriously pursued it had he not gotten into music. As a child, he played Travis in ''Theatre/ARaisinInTheSun'' during a run at the Apollo Theater. As an adult, his best-known movies include ''PoeticJustice'' with Music/JanetJackson and ''Above The Rim.''

** Even Dr. Dre on his last album, after Dre had left Death Row. Pac mistakenly thought Dre had abandoned him in prison, when he'd really just realized that Suge Knight was a godawful manager. Obviously Tupac wasn't going to feel the same way about the man who'd just bailed him out of jail.

** Mobb Deep
** Music/JayZ
** Chino XL
** Music/{{Nas}}
** All of Junior M.A.F.I.A.
** Music/LLCoolJ

to:

** Mobb Deep
Deep - The duo featured on Capone N Noreaga's "L.A, L.A" remix, which dissed the West Coast, and 2Pac felt it dissed him, so he took a few potshots at them - most notably on "Hit Em Up", in which he mocked Prodigy's sickle-cell anemia (which many felt went too far). Mobb Deep replied with "Drop a Gem on Em".
** Music/JayZ
Music/JayZ - Jay-Z never dissed 2Pac, but due to being a prominent East Coast rapper who was good friends with Biggie, he still fell into 2Pac's crosshairs. Most infamously, the song "Fuck Friendz" had the line "Ain't no nigga like me / Fuck Jay-Z!", which Nas would later sample on his own Jay-Z diss "Ether". "Hit Em Up" also originally had a line aimed at Jay-Z, but the Outlawz felt that he didn't really have anything to do with the beef and talked Pac into taking it out. On his end, Jay had his own diss aimed at 2Pac, but when Pac died, he opted not to release it out of respect.
** Chino XL
XL - Chino's style involves dissing pretty much ''everyone'', and his song "Riiiot!" has a line poking fun at the theory that 2Pac [[PrisonRape was raped in jail]]. Pac didn't take too kindly to this, and included a quick diss on "Hit Em Up" ("Chino XL, '''fuck you too!''').
** Music/{{Nas}}
Music/{{Nas}} - 2Pac felt that one of Nas' lines on "The Message" ("Fake thug, no love, you get the slug, [=CB4=] Gusto) was aimed at him, and took shots at Nas on a few tracks on ''The 7 Day Theory''. Interestingly, 2Pac and Nas had a chat face-to-face where they squashed the beef, and 2Pac promised to remove the disses against Nas from the album, [[AuthorExistenceFailure but died before he could]].
** All of Junior M.A.F.I.A.
A. - This is really no surprise, what with them basically being Biggie's answer to the Outlawz.
** Music/LLCoolJMusic/LLCoolJ - 2Pac felt that the song "I Shot Ya" (not to be confused with Biggie's song "Who Shot Ya?") was aimed at him, and approached Keith Murray about it, but they were luckily able to diffuse tensions before a beef could really start.
