Pusha T: “That was war music. He took on a whole coast and took on the best of the coast. He addressed any and everybody, on top of making great records. He addressed it all, the who’s who. Everybody he addressed is on this list—one died, one is still here and still great, still top-tier, Mobb Deep’s still around with arguably another classic on here. Pac took on the top tier and was philosophizing on you. That’s what his thing was.”
