These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Broken Base: Fans often argue over what album showcases the real Tupac. The albums in question are Me Against the World VS All Eyez on Me. Proponents of the former claim that the album is better than AEOM because of its depth and dark, introspective approach, while claiming that AEOM is just a typical mainstream rap album people jumped on the bandwagon for. Conversely, fans of the latter argue that Tupac works with a much wider range of topics in AEOM than in MATW, living it up on a few songs while exploring more serious topics in others.
Confirmation Bias: For better or for worse, this was a HUGE part of his appeal to his core audience.
"Ghetto Gospel" wouldn't be so good if it wasn't for this.
Tear Jerker: Dear Mama , and especially Brenda's Got A Baby which is both soul crushing AND heartbreaking.
Uncanny Valley: Dr. Dre & Snoop Dog brought a Pac hologram with them when they headlined Coachella in 2012. It just barely looked like a projection, and that was if you were sober and watching on a computer. Naturally, something so unnerving had to open with Pac's creepiest song.
What an Idiot: Confessed on Yo! MTV Raps to beating up the Hughes brothers. Keep in mind that when he assaulted them there were absolutely no witnesses to the crime, so without 2Pac's confession he probably would have walked. With the confession, not only was he convicted and sentenced to 18 days in jail, but the prosecutors made a big deal about how he showed absolutely no remorse for committing the crime and in fact went on television to brag about it.
