rip tupac

So will the real men get up
I know you're fed up ladies, but keep your head up o/~

yesterday was tupac's bday. heppy bday to my absolute favorite artist of all time, and a true fkn american hero:

you say anything bad about tupac, i will fkn cut you. he got me thru so many hard times with this song:

I give a holler to my sisters on welfare
Tupac cares, if don't nobody else care o/~

as i have always said, if you were a teen mom in the 90s this was your fkn anthem, and tupac was the only artist to acknowledge or throw support to us for so long. i remember listening to this song so hard that i wore out *2* copies of the single on my tapedeck. part of what is so hard about being a teen parent is that no one will honestly acknowledge how hard it is, people will just insinuate or think or whathaveyou that you deserve whatever hard lot raising a child is, even as they throw endless help and support on someone only 4yr older than you because that person "did it right". fuck that. i am proud of my life, and i am proud of having raised my kids up right, and fuck anyone who thinks that i deserve some sort of harder shift at child-raising just because i decided to do shit on my own schedule. that is why now when people attempt to shame me about it in the PTA and stuff i like to point out how i raised my kids concurrent with earning a degree and being an accomplished successful professional photographer AND programmer. suck that scenario back down with your attempt at slut-shaming.

But please don't cry, dry your eyes, never let up
Forgive but don't forget, girl keep your head up
And when he tells you you ain't nuttin don't believe him
And if he can't learn to love you you should leave him
Cause sista you don't need him
And I ain't tryin to cash up, I just call em how I see em

lyrics under the cut because they are so good.
