Known as “Tupac” and “Biggie Smalls”, Tupac Amaru Shakur and Christopher George Latore Wallace, even after their early deaths, they were and still are the legends of the hip hop industry. How can someone have so much influence among people, even when they are not present? Let`s start from the beginning. In 1987, Tupac started his career with recordings, but he made boom in the 1991 when he released his solo album, “2Pacalypse now”. After that, in 1993, his second album “Strictly 4 My N.I.G.G.A.Z…” was published and had way better reactions than the first one, which climbed to 24th place on the Billboard 200. The greatest and most influential hip-hop albums of all time was revealed in 1995 “Me against the World” and had won best rap album at the 1996 Soul Train Music Awards. His fourth album “All Eyez on Me” was recorded in 1995 but make public in 1996. It was certified 5× platinum after just two months, 9× platinum in 1998, and won Soul Train R&B/Soul or Rap Album of the Year award. His last album “The 7 Day Theory” under the name Makaveli, was finished just in seven days and the lyrics were written and recorded in three days in 1996 and it was certified 4× Platinum in 1999. In 1994 the Biggie Smalls released his first debut studio album “Ready to die” which had become a huge success achieving Gold certification and certified 6x platinum with sales. This album had been considered as one of the greatest hip hop albums and one of the best albums of all time. His second and sadly last album “Life after Death” was published shortly after his death. Like the previous album, this also had huge success and won many prizes as Best Rap Album and was ranked on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of “The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time” In one interview, Biggie Smalls said “One man against one man made a whole West coast hate a whole East Coast.” And by this you can see that they were very powerful and influential people. They both had done so much in their short life years, than anyone can ever do in their whole life. One that is simply true and answer to the question why these two legends will always stay legends in the hip hop industry. For every success there is price, and these two guys, sadly and very early had paid theirs.
