‘So Many Tears’ By Tupac Shakur Reflects His Challenges As A Revolutionary
Music fans everywhere celebrated Tupac Shakur’s birthday on June 16 as a day of tribute to the late rapper. This year would have marked the 51st birthday of the beloved rapper. Although Pac was shot and killed by a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas in 1996, he leaves behind a remarkable legacy. The artist was only 25 at the time.
In the decades that have followed the untimely death of the late revolutionary, the impact of his radical ideas has continued to grow in new dimensions. He remains one of the most remembered members of his generation. Many people knew him personally and considered him a brother to them.
New generations of Hip Hop artists are taking things up a notch and leading Rap into new realms of expression. However, those who are passionate about Tupac Shakur’s music and activism still regard him as one of the greatest rappers of all time.
Tupac Shakur’s ‘So Many Tears’ Was Produced By Whom?
In honor of Tupac’s life, FMHipHop brings you an introspective favorite of Tupac’s titled “So Many Tears.” In which he shares some of his most intimate feelings. Furthermore, it was produced by Shock G, one of his collaborators at Digital Underground.
The two of them gave us numerous Hip Hop classics, which until today, still energize a party. “So Many Tears,” however, chose to take a different direction as Shakur sought to give the world a glimpse into his viewpoint.
Additionally, Shock G passed away in April of 2021. The world owes these two men a debt of gratitude for their dedication to Hip Hop and the services they have offered. Check out “So Many Tears” below.
Now I’m lost, and I’m weary, so many tears
I’m suicidal, so don’t stand near me
My every move is a calculated step
To bring me closer to embrace an early death
Now there’s nothin’ left
There was no mercy on the streets
I couldn’t rest, I’m barely standin’
About to go to pieces, screamin’ peace
And though my soul was deleted, I couldn’t see it
I had my mind full of demons tryin’ to break free
