Thuggin' till the day I die
They don't give a fuck about us
And when I start to rise
A hero in their children's eyes
Now they give a fuck about us
The adults are ignorant and don’t want to hear 2Pac’s message. When their children and the new generation listen to it and understand it they get start recognizing the music and can’t avoid it.
Eminem has a similar line in White America that deals with parents finally being forced to deal with hip-hop because it is the music of youth. Although Em has a different audience the same message prevails.
See the problem is, I speak to suburban kids
Who otherwise woulda never knew these words exist
Whose mom’s probably woulda never gave two squirts of piss
‘til I created so much motherfuckin’ turbulence
