On this article, Satanism in Hip Hop, i will provide you how the rapper Tupac allegedly sold his soul to the devil for money and fame.
* note to readers- this information was gathered by youtube videos, and Tupac's own lyrics he wrote. I am not in any way forcing you to believe what is written. In the end, this is for entertainment purposes only. The only thing i ask for you is an open mind.*
* note to readers- I do not believe you can sell your soul to the devil. I am not saying Tupac did sell his soul, he may have written these lyrics as metaphoric meanings. I do not in any way intend for this article to disrespect Tupac in any way.*
R.I.P. Tupac Shakur - June 16, 1971- September 13, 1993.
Tupac Shakur was an amazing person. On this article i will show you clues through his lyrics how he sold his soul to the devil. Towards the end of Tupac's life, he realized what he was doing and repeatedly asked for forgiveness from God. Tupac was murdered on September 13, 1993. There are mixed thoughts on why Tupac was murdered. Some believed was murdered by the Illuminati, but that's another topic for another day.
Tupac, like most artist that sold their soul, clearly states through his lyrics he sold his soul. The first lyric we will look over is from his song "simile". I would recommend for you to go to youtube and listen to these songs as we go over them.
" Sellin' my soul for material wishes, fast cars and b------, within i live my life a legend, immortalized in pictures"
This lyric is self explanatory.
Now lets move on to the next lyric.
"Sold my soul for a chance to kick it and bang
Now tell if I'm wrong
but sayin "F--- the world" got you deeper in my songs
Drinkin 'til I hurl, spendin money 'til it's gone
It's the good life - maybe n---- got it goin on"
At this point of Tupac's life, when he first sold his soul, He enjoyed it. "Kick it and bang". This phrase means Tupac's thug life, and how good it was. He was bragging, nonetheless. The Devil works in through possession, and its obvious he was possessed in his early stage of his career.
"When Thugs Cry"
"Am I cold or is it just I sold my soul?
Addicted to these streets, never find true peace I'm told
Come take my body God, don't let me suffer any longer"
This lyric says it all. Tupac realized at this point that the deal with the devil was true, he had no soul, which is why he feels cold. "Never find true peace im told"- This verse is stating that from selling his soul he will never find peace in his heart. He asks God to take his body, and don't let him suffer any longer. He is admitting to God he sold his soul, and is asking him to forgive him and relive him from his misery.
" My Closest Roaddawgs"
"It was cool cause i love ya,
F--- wut they talkin bout let me take you back in time,
rewind to 89,
introduced me to this life of crime"
The year 1989 was the year Tupac made his name in the music world. "Rewind to 89, introduced me to this life of crime"- Also in 1989, is when Tupac sold his soul, for the "chance to kick it and bang". Tupac is saying he sold his soul to live the gangster life, which occurred in 1989.
"My Closest Roaddawgs"
"murder murder mister Lucifer,
pictures of the devil,
duck when he shoot ya,
its all political"
In the same song, Tupac once again talks about the devil. This lyric is saying Satan has power in the streets and in politics.
"As the World Turns"
"Merciless thieves stole the best of me
I pray to black Jesus to please take the rest of me"
The first line, "Merciless thieves stole the best of me" is referring to demons as "thieves". What is most important to anybody, it would be their soul. The second line is Tupac again asking for forgiveness from God.
" Just sell me your soul and live the life of a ghetto star"
Tupac is repeating what the devil promised him.
Everybody makes mistakes. Tupac just happened to make the biggest mistake, Selling his soul for material things. Tupac often spoke out on selling you soul in public, which many believed that was why he was murdered. Tupac had a good heart, he just let greed overtake him. If this is true.
Thank you for reading and i hope you enjoyed it.
