This issue came up due to the history of celebrated musicians who may have had a some what "thuggish, criminal, gangster" appearance or mentality, yet, brought about a positive change amongst the communities of the nation, as well as romanticized as a hero in some countries out of the state. The world is being reformed. This man represented a smart, hardworking man, who through life had earned this "thug image". The thug image, personigied, was a model to represent thos who had felt like they had to choose that specific lifestyle in order to survive or provide for there families. With that being said there are generations of prisoners who were locked up before his rise to stardom and afterwards, who just like he, were reformed or turn there once known "gangster" lifestyle, into an instrument to better the community. Such as; mentoring, providing legal security for families, providing revenue and time for rising musicians (who portray or are using music to escape the rotation of real "thugging". Tupac and other musicians from this lifestyle, have influenced orther people in all jobs and aspects of this life, but being some what of a hard image, some of these celebrities wont get noticed as a politician, war hero, or humanitarian, just because of the image seen as "portrayed".

They're new generations coming about. This generation grew up out of this era and are having kid's. These man were heros to alot of people and through there music influenced many decisions that helped bring about a positive lifestyle for these generations. There are people old and new who through tupac and his music have been saved from incarseration, brought about jobs in music and other careers (music and non music related), tupac did have mosogynistic lyics but i the same notion, was bringing the thoughts of love, hard work, and unity in, not just the urban and impoverished communities, but the whole of the nation as well. I feel like a national holiday, would suprise the older generation, connect the older and yhe younger generation who listened to him. As well as promote the image that a person from impoverished and violent areas of the world can grow up and be loved for being who they are, aswell as be congratulated for the hard work they make by staying positive and striving for a better ment of there communities.
