You guys are forgetting "Tupac was poor!" It doesn't matter if he attended a high school that was 90% white, when he arrived at his house he was back in the hood.
Of course we know these guys were trying to be successful before being rappers. People mature before others, you can't say "Biggie is not a gangsta, because he was 16 working at a grocery store."
It might sound stupid, but becoming a gangster or criminal takes time just like any other career. First you have to imagine or dream then pursue what you want to become. I'm sure if Biggie had a chance to become Frank White before becoming a Rapper he would have taken the opportunity.
Far as Tupac getting shot in New York, I think it was an orchestrated plot. I think 2pac was pointing his fingers at the wrong people, Tupac was f!ghting a highly publicized case, who the f**k would rob someone "the day before the verdict?" It could have been someone looking for retaliation because they were afraid he would walk free or Tupac could have staged the whole thing hoping for jury sympathy.
