Tupac Shakur was shot and slaughtered. This year, his heritage has been recalled and respected in different ways, most prominently in the Benny Boom-coordinated biopic All Eyez on Me. Today (Sept. 13), The Game pays uncommon tribute to Shakur with another record titled “Paradise 4 a Gangster,” to pay tribute to his less than ideal passing.
On “Paradise 4 a Gangster,” Game ruminates about how ‘Pac would be disturbed in the event that he were alive to witness life in 2017: “Tupac handing over his grave with this gibberish/A little solider ain’t from Bompton.” He likewise grandstands his expressive cleverness when he flips MCs’ names into steely punchlines. “I’ve been on Lil Yachts/Shot crips with Lil Uzis/Got blocks from the Migos/And my bitches “Awful and Boujee,” he spits.
