Although he often made foolish decisions, Tupac was no fool. “I really don’t like crooked police.” Think about that. The fellow interviewing Pac sounds like a real Crackerjack dirtbag. He’s actually the toy in that box of Crackerjacks.

Listen to what Pac is saying here. He was a brilliant cat. It’s too bad he didn’t live to see an era in hip-hop wherein intelligence is a respected attribute–meaning that OPEN intelligence is acceptable and encouraged. Kanye may rap about expensive handbags from time to time, but you never say that the guy doesn’t have a mind sophisticated enough to solve a Rubix Cube. Tupac was radical (at times), dude.
