“If Tupac was incapable of witnessing others’ pain, he was equally incapable of enduring their rejection. “One of Pac’s problems was he loved a lot, and loved hard, and he was very passionate about what he loved,” rapper Talib Kweli says. “And he loved freedom, and loved black people to the point where it pained him, and you could hear it in his records. When he felt that love wasn’t reciprocated it hurt him.” It not only hurt Tupac to be denied the love he believed he deserved; it angered him. “A lot of the people he lashed out against were people he was genuinely hurt by, whether they felt like they hurt him or not.”
—  Holler If You Hear Me: Searching for Tupac Shakur, Michael Eric Dyson
