    He's out of his mind and yes, it's because he smoked way too much crack.

    He’s obviously wrong, but still an all time legend.

    He did say Biggie was a better rapper which he was. I could agree Pac changed more than Biggie with his overly dramatic personality. But Biggie is still the better artist by miles

    Melle Mel is definitely a legend and he inspired a lot of artists. However, I don’t think he got the memo that better rappers came out after his run. He’s always had this inflated sense of his lyrical ability.

    They were both overrated imo. Mediocre. The currrebt generation of rappers are way better.

    Both are top tier rappers but I always regarded Pac as the better artist by miles. Biggie's an outstanding emcee but there's something about his song choices and albums that comes off semi-manufactured compared to Pac, maybe cause of the connection to Diddy and the fact that Life After Death was a very glossy album, despite being a classic record.

    Pac just seems way more poetic and soulful in his raps. Suicidal Thoughts and Sky's The Limit are some of my fave introspective BIG songs but even those 2 combined don't have the emotion of Brenda's Got A Baby or Dear Mama.

    And Melle Mel's right about Pac's legacy. Pac's legacy d--- near rivals Bob Marley's with the Pope listening to him, African armies being named after him, sparking the Arab Spring, Putin giving him a shoutout, murals of him everywhere, and lowkey popularizing bandanas on a worldwide scale. Biggie's skilled and actually more influential when it comes to quotables but his legacy just can't compare, especially on a global scale.

    mehh...Pacs persona once he joined Death Row was corny to me. He's the reason he's dead and Biggie's dead. If they were both alive with the amount of popular artists pac was going at and the amount of people leaving Death Row he would have been crushed. He wasn't lyrically near Biggie at all and alienated himself. I agree his legacy is bigger, but Biggie is the better artist to me at least. All of Pacs albums have fillers

    Both legends. BIG's career was cut shorter than Pac's so it's unfair to say he left less impact. It's also just untrue, proven by 25 years of continuing influence from both men.
