BET Lists "10 Trends That Tupac Started (Sort Of)"

BET acknowledges Tupac didn't invent these trends, but it says he still made you want to imitate them.

BET has published a list titled "10 Trends That 2Pac Started (Sort Of)."

The publication explains its headline with the following statement: "[Tupac] may not have invented these trademark styles, but he sure as heck made you want to imitate them. We decided to review 10 trends that 'Pac (sort of) made popular." 

The trends BET lists are as follows: Tying Bandanas Backwards, Stomach Tattoos, Making Songs About Mom, Starting Off With A Crew, Rocking Leather Vests, Pursuing Acting, Snapback Hats, Rocking Jerseys, Throwing Up Westside and Double Disc Albums. 

Throughout its list, BET notes Tupac wasn't the first to participate in many of these trends. It also notes some of the trends were popular before Tupac began participating in them. For instance, when it discusses snapback hats, the site says: "Actually, these were just popular at the time, but 'Pac's penchant for rocking them backwards did have some pull. The iconic pic above was taken from the movie Poetic Justice and may have very well inspired you to wear your snapback backwards."

    I've been reading DX articles and user comments for years. But this year the comments have reached an all-time-high of STUPIDITY. Y'all cocksuckers have no relevance. Y'all illiterate Internet users don't even read the whole article and start writing comments. DX commentators be the most inapt, with no fucking rationalism 'hip-hop fans'. Here's something that can relate to this post 'FUCK Y'ALL' !

      For real. Lol at this list.And the sad things is things like this has been kept their legacy and made it into something completely different than what it is ever since they died. Lol at snapback hats, throwing up W, bandana backwards, jerseys though..lmao. This is why i cant rock with 2pac or Biggie like that. The kids raised after they were dead actually go by by shit like this and it becomes facts to them.

  • mediocre rapper and worst actor ever

    -Dissing other rappers in a harsh way like talking about murdering or fuckin the other rapper's bitch not innocently like BDP and 3rd Bass did things. -posthumous albums -making albums in jail -Getting arrested and/or shot is cool
