Final Tupac Shakur Quotes

Here’s the last section of quotes by Tupac Shakur:

I don’t have no fear of death. My only fear is coming back reincarnated.

“I might just be my mother’s child, but in all reality, I’m everybody’s child. Nobody raised me. I was raised in this society.”

Reality is wrong. Dreams are for real. All I’m trying to do is survive and make good out of the dirty, nasty, unbelievable lifestyle that they gave me.

I’m not sayin’ I’m gonna rule the world, or that I’m gonna change the world, but I guarantee that I will spark the brain that will change the world.

To me, a perfect album talks about the hard stuff and the fun and caring stuff.
