Puffy lets be honest you a punk or you will see me with gloves
Remember that shit you said to Vibe about me bein a thug
Against All Odds by 2Pac

After Pac got shot and locked up, he participated in a Vibe interview while at Clinton Correctional Facility, in which he said that “Thug Life” was dead:

I’m going to save these young niggas, because nobody else wants to save them. Nobody ever came to save me. They just watch what happen to you. That’s why Thug Life to me is dead. If it’s real, then let somebody else represent it, because I’m tired of it.

Puffy, in regards to Pac’s statement, then said in Vibe Magazine:

I hope that his Thug Life shit is really over. But on the real, if you gonna be a motherfuckin’ thug, you gots to live and die a thug, you know what I’m sayin’? There ain’t no jumpin’ in and out of thugism. If that’s what you choose to do, you gots to go out like that. I ain’t no thug. Only thugs I know is dead or in jail. Or about to be.

Against All Odds by 2Pac

A common theme in his songs, Tupac views his role in life as a general or leader at war. This time, it’s war with the fake rappers of the industry

It is about King Tut and Haitian Jack. Two stick up kids who shot PAC in the 94' shooting. They were dressed in fatigues, black jeans, and boots that night. Both were associates of Biggie, which kicked off the Beef between the PAC and Biggie.
