Tupac
1) I know the artist was very mad at a group of people music artists from the east coast. this song was a response they way east coast rappers were making fun of him while he was in prison, and to the people the thought may have set him up in a shooting. 2) The speaker in the song is just a first person, him calling out other music artists for wrongs he had felt done against him, and wanting to get a chance to get even with them for disrespecting him, or even shooting him. 3) The setting for which this song takes place is in their present time Los Angeles making the year 1996. 4) The emotions I feel when listening to this song is anger, rage, and I get a sense of betrayal from the people he is angry with. 5) This song doesn’t really make me think about any events in my life, I haven’t felt that angry with someone to that point. 6) The lyrics don’t really tell a story, it’s just more of the artist trying to get the attention of the artists he felt had did him wrongly. 7) The main emotion felt in this song is just the sheer rage he has. This was something Tupac had held for over three years from the span of the time he was shot and then put into prison, and he just let the rage build up until he got out and released this track. 8) Some lyrics that stand out to me are “I ain't got no mother#$*&ing friends” because it’s the first thing he says, and shows an example of his feeling betrayed. Another set is “I don't even know why I'm on this track” because he’s basically saying they are not even worth his time. The last one is “We Bad Boy killers.” This is the last thing he says as the song ends repeating killers as the song fades pretty much saying he will kill they’re whole entire crew or anyone affiliated with them. 9) These lyrics make me wonder who actually shot him. Why did they get him started? And was all of this really necessary? 10) The message the music artist is trying to push is
