Tupac's Legacy Looms Larger Than Ever


Twenty years since his passing and Tupac seems to loom larger than ever. While MCs still evoke his legacy in seemingly every way—from look to outlook—none have yet to successfully usurp. And every time an artist compares himself to Pac we react with the same vitriol, wondering how one would dare to measure themselves against Makaveli. This week’s Breakdown takes a look at two decades of Tupac-A-Likes and rapper’s constant attempts to co-opt his legacy. Thank you to this week’s special guests, Scarface and E.D.I. Mean. Let’s break it down.
