  1. If your mama is alive and you are able to call her or see her PLEASE do. because once she gone, there is no other person on this planet that you can call your mother. peace and love

  2. My favorite picture of Tupac is on the Hail Mary single. He's looking at all of us like "are you all gonna fall for this?"

  3. My dad died when I was 18 but nothing prepared me for the death of my mom at 22. My mom wasn't perfect but damn she taught me what care was and that is more than what most ever get.

  4. Don’t fuck wit me online I can bring the pain that’s pure Truth and real rats gotta bow down with that twisted shit they swear gonna work against Creator …

    I've grown up to this song. I'm 30 years old and my name is Larry Melchert. I've lost my mom this year may 19th. she was my best friend. her name was Tina D Metoxen. I've been struggling hard since then. I've met a girl who is the world to me. she didnt get a chance to meet my moms cuz I was just starting to date her when moms passed. moms had a heart attack while i was with her n she only lasted 5 days til we had to pull the plug
    since I've struggled with drug addiction to ease the pain. it's a fighting battle n I'm bout to loose my girl. the only thing I got left. her Name is Kristy Krenke from Greenbay Wisconsin. I love her so much n I'm getting help. we both have our own house and it kills sleeping with out her by my side. I'm gona stay sober n get back. moms would have loved her if she got to meet her. I was in a 10 yrs relationship before this one n my mom hated the girl I was with for 10 years. god I wish she could of met Kristy Krenke from greenbay Wisconsin. wer both native American n she is so into our peoples ways n culture. she so smart. 2 jobs n she has a bachelor's degree n is gona go for her masters . I fuckin love her n a have been threw so much with her n have had so man memories in the year I've known her. I miss u so much Kristy Krenke. I'm not giving up on me. I'm not giving up on us. love you with all my heart Kristy Krenke. 😘.N i miss u so much too moms. I could tell u anything moms n u would never judge or hate me for it. never… this song will never die!!! respect Tupac

  7. I grew up dirt poor cause I chose to live with my mom instead of my pops, I don't regret a damn thing 💯. "Ain't a woman alive that can take my momma's place" felt that shit 🙏

  8. It doesn't matter what time we are here from. We all listen to tupac and the music is always legendary no matter what the calendar says.

  9. this song is amazing and i listen to it cause its really relatable, i will always love my mother no matter what, no matter how many times i get in arguments with her, sometimes im angry at her, and i wish she would go away forever, but no matter what i say or what i do, i will always love my MOMMA..

  10. Tupac inspired me when i was a child. Tupac inspired me when i was a teenager.
    Tupac inspired me when i got 18.
    Tupac inspired me when i got married.
    Tupac inspired me when my dad almost past away.
    Tupac inspires me now.
    Tupac will for ever inspiring me.
    Thank you God, for sending this angel on earth, to inspire all the lost souls on this world.
