Banksy sat down to talk music with hip hop duo Run The Jewels, who will be performing at his inaugural music festival in September.

Rihanna is the new Tupac. As much as I love rock, ain’t nobody do it like Pac! Ri-Ri rules in my book,” Killer Mike from the duo told Banksy.

    No she is not. She doesn’t speak on political issues like Tupac, I don’t see her trying to help her community like Tupac. Tupac was more than a rapper he was an activist and created an ever lasting legacy in his short 25 years of life.

    Please, stop with the revisionist history. People who don’t remember the 90s want to act like Pac was some kind of saint. He wasn’t. He was NOT an activist, his mother was. There were valid reasons why he had THUG LIFE tattooed on his torso. Rihanna and Pac have more in common that you realize.

    Pac was no saint but his good out weighed the bad. He was a product of his environment and tried to make the best of what he had. He was a child of a black Panther and cared about his community.He was a member of the New Afrikan Panthers and he helped create a code between the Crips and Bloods so there would be less violence against children in the hood. Thug life didn’t stand for snatch your purse and shoot up a club. It was an acronym for The Hate U Gave Lil Infants F*cks Everybody.Thug Life is when you have nothing, and succeed, when you have overcome all obstacles to reach your goal. Now I don’t agree with everything Pac did but his intentions were good and that’s why he gets so much love. He was only 25 when he killed so granted he made stupid mistakes and could have had a different apprach but other than smoking weed and tattoos Rihanna doesn’t compare to Tupac.
