Just be a man, make plans
Listen to your voice
A woman's tryin' to make decisions
We should leave them a choice
Cause who are we to say who lives and die
Breathes and stops
In these lines Pac is targeting mainly domestic violence. He’s telling the men to stop being such beasts and settle, from not doing so is the reason why they got aids in the previous lines. Men and people, in general, usually have a good conscious but choose to make bad decisions so Tupac is asking them to listen to their conscious and just do whats right.
Another thing is men are raping innocent and weak women and as a result of this, they’re getting pregnant. Some of them are restricted by poverty, heart-brake, inferiority complex’s from a bad childhood and such, which gives men no right to take advantage of these women trying to make it on their own. Not only are some getting taken advantage of and raped, but even killed. Tupac addresses the problem in these lines.
