This post makes me sad.
I am gravely disappointed. Again you have made me unleash my dogs of war.
Lol, they have some decent stuff. I recently looked up Quiet Storm on YouTube, good stuff. I don't even remember what they did to make 2Pac mad, but I sure remember the sickle cell line from Hit em Up.
Both good but neither are the best.
Thes one and double k for me
This country was built by people who worked hard then went home and had just a few too many every night. Then went back to work.
This. 2Pac owns Biggy and sounds better doing it. Biggy sometimes sounds like he's gasping for air.

Respect for both, but:
MTV answer: Tupac
Correct Answer: BIG... Is the illest.
Pac was a more polished artist, but Biggie's songs are the ones I still listen to.
2pac. Biggie wanted to be great and was good. Pac wanted to be great and was great. He had the flow, the lyric, the connection with the beat and the story. He was a legitimate poet and a trained artist. Most of all, he made use of the walking contradiction that was his life and embraced everything about it. Biggie just rapped about being biggie. 2pac was at a different level. There is talent in both, but I to even say they were equals is laughable.
1 more vote for Biggie. Of course maybe that's because I'm from the East Coast, much like Tupac. Big ups to Brooklyn.
Don't think it's really fair to compare how many good songs they have though, Big died before his 2nd album came out. Both albums are great cover to cover though. Never liked the fact that most rappers lived the life then rapped about it as opposed to Tupac that rapped about it then tried to live the life. There was no Thug Life happening when he was dancing for the Humpty Hump.

Prior Planning Prevents Poor Performance
Not that I know nor care, but of what I knew I would say Tupac seemed a far more powerful figure both musically and personally.
seems like neither one could escape the contradictions.kinda crazy in retrospect.what made them great rappers also made them dead rappers?
Tupac. A real artist. California Love - my favorite. For years I casually wondered where that sample had come from - it was so familiar. Then I heard an obscure Joe Cocker song from around '72 that never received much airplay that I used to play on a mostly Country-Western juke box. I like exactly two Joe Cocker songs but the strength of California Love is at LEAST 50% Cocker's "Woman to Woman."
Granted, Biggie had more street cred before he became famous.... but it wasn't as if Tupac was Vanilla Ice or something...
Two pages in and no one is taking people task for spelling it Biggy? Come on.
This kid is brining back NY.

Piggie only has a handful of songs...

Can't believe I just liked and listened to some music from a kid born in 1995. He was 1 year old when Tupac died lol.

Like them both, but have to go with BIG. Pac can't touch him lyrically. Are there any elite lyricists from the west coast? Seems like the are all from NY (nas, jay, rakim, gangstarr, KRSone, etc)

East Coast was more lyrically driven than the west coast
