T-Pain stated that if Tupac Shakur were alive with the modern technology, he would not be as respected by fans due to the modern technologies afforded to platforms like TikTok, Youtube, and Instagram. He states that the rap legend would get “ate the fuck up lyrically.” This discussion took place on DJ Akademiks’ Twitch channel.“‘Pac would’ve gotten killed sooner [if social media existed] and he would’ve gotten his ass ate the fuck up lyrically,” T-Pain said, to Akademiks’ surprise.
Boosie who is known for being quite vocal on topics, took to Twitter to give his take on the comments by T-Pain. If one recalls, Boosie has respected Tupac for a long time and even released a project entitled “BooPac” in tribute to him.
Boosie took offense to T-Pain’s assumption about Tupac’s lyricism and explained why on Twitter.
2Pac was a great lyricist !! U probably wouldn’t understand him if u never been through the struggles that this world brings!! @TPAIN I disagree the lyrics n songs these days last a couple years n there gone because they don’t have meaning .The lyrics don’t touch your heart.”
We the people wanted you to curse him out why you being so nice ? Lol

He continued by asking why people like to make negative comments towards the iconic 2Pac.

Exactly SMDH, if they wasn’t a fan cool but don’t shit on one of the Greatest to do it. SOME of us appreciated his Genius

Boosie even referenced the single “Troublesome 96,” that included the lyrics of “N*)&^%s talk a lot a ish, but that’s after I’m gone ,cause they fear me in a physical form ,let it be known I’m troublesome”.
