Tupac Shakur wasn’t in the rap game for very long; he made his come up with Digital Underground in early ’90s, and his musical peak probably 3-4 years at the most.

But Pac left a lasting impact on music and culture for decades to come, and those short years of his prime were enough to cement him as one of the greatest rappers of all time.
