The man behind “Wu-Tang An American Saga” series spoke on his thoughts Tupac being able to generate emotion in his listeners and activate the rebel in someone.

Fat Joe came across some backlash over his recent appearance on the newly revamped BET RapCity with Big Tigger. He commented that DaBaby is the modern-day version of Tupac which didn’t sit well with a few people. RZA talked with The Art of Dialogue and the Wu-Tang Clan icon shared his thoughts on why Pac was more “dangerous” than The Notorious B.I.G.

“Then you go to Pac, once again, immaculate voice, but what Pac had, I think, was a way of touching us in all of our emotions,” said RZA.

“Like, Pac had the power to infuse your emotional thought, like ‘Brenda Has a Baby,’ ‘Dear Mama,’ but then he had the power to arouse the rebel in you. You know? And those two things—actually, he was probably more dangerous than Big, Notorious B.I.G.”

“Notorious B.I.G., we could party with him, to this day we’re still…but Pac, we’re probably, going to point, he was more going into the Malcolm X of things and society fears that.”
